CompuChild Recognized as a "10-Year Hall of Fame Member" for Winning the "Best of the Best" Franchise Award for Franchisee Satisfaction
DUBLIN, Calif., Aug. 5, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Children's education franchise CompuChild is proud to announce that it has been named a "Top Franchise for 2022" by Franchise Business Review. Quality and franchisee satisfaction have been the hallmark of CompuChild as the franchise has been recognized as a "10-Year Hall of Fame Member" for Winning the "Best of the Best" Franchise Award a total of 13 years as of 2022.
CompuChild's franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity. "As an independent research firm, Franchise Business Review is committed to helping prospective franchisees get an objective view of the best franchise opportunities, based on actual feedback from franchise owners," said Michelle Rowan, president & COO of Franchise Business Review. "We survey franchisees from franchise companies in the marketplace today and identify those with the highest levels of satisfaction and performance in order to educate potential buyers and help them choose which franchise to invest in. The companies on this year's list of Top Franchises are the top-ranked brands in the key areas critical to their franchisees' success."
CompuChild was founded in 1994 and the company has been franchising since 2001. Over the years, the franchise has transformed itself from its initial emphasis on computer education to entrepreneurial education by adding classes in technology, financial awareness, communication and ethics. Each of these topics is highly relevant to building an entrepreneurial mindset: technology has been a key driver of innovation in every aspect of our lives, financial awareness is required to make sure that innovations are economically viable, communication skills help entrepreneurs gather and unite their teams, and ethical considerations are key to determining whether any innovation would be socially responsible.
Discussing the core philosophy of the franchise, the President of CompuChild said, "We have observed that technology, financial awareness, communication and ethics have hardly been incorporated into the elementary and middle school curricula. Even in high school, most students do not get the opportunity to take even a single dedicated course on these topics. With the proliferation of technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, the job market is changing drastically. In order to survive and stay relevant, students will need to develop an entrepreneurial mindset which encourages them to learn constantly and evolve. CompuChild's programs are focused on Entrepreneurial STEAM™ which encourages children to develop an entrepreneurial mindset right from the early school years. All of CompuChild's after-school enrichment programs involve multisensory learning through model building, collaboration, presentation, and interactive questioning. Each course has been designed to be taught in various settings, enabling the franchisees to leverage multiple channels at once. While there has been a significant drive towards online education over the recent years, CompuChild believes that there is no parallel to in-person education, especially for children at the pre-school and elementary school levels."
CompuChild's focus on in-person education impacted its franchisees hard during the recent pandemic, but the organization's commitment to offering quality after school enrichment programs and dedication to the success of its franchisees only strengthened during these times. The Franchise Business Review team recognized this during their survey. As Founder & CEO Eric Stites said, "While the pandemic impacted various business sectors differently, the last 18 months have clearly demonstrated the inherent strengths of the franchise business model. The old franchise adage of being in business for yourself, but not by yourself has never been more important. Thanks to fast innovations, significant support, and responsive crisis management, many franchise brands have emerged stronger from the pandemic, and that is reflected in high franchisee satisfaction."
CompuChild's commitment to the franchise model is driven by the strong belief that student-teacher relationships and understanding play a very important role in the effectiveness of the learning process. If the student and the teacher come from the same community, there is a higher level of bonding and personal investment, which is likely to create a better educational experience. CompuChild's franchising model allows motivated entrepreneurs to make a difference in their community by offering a high-quality and relevant education to children. A CompuChild franchisee can offer in-person enrichment programs at pre-schools, afterschool centers, elementary schools, summer camps, birthday parties, and can also supplement those with online classes. This allows complete freedom and flexibility for the franchise business owner. The core purpose of CompuChild is to get children excited about learning. Once children start to seek knowledge and explore on their own, they become life-long learners, and that is what CompuChild's after school entrepreneurial education programs are aspiring to achieve.
The CompuChild franchise offers Entrepreneurial STEAM™ (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) focused enrichment programs for children primarily at the pre-kindergarten and elementary school level in the United States and Canada. With its unique focus on entrepreneurial education, strong emphasis on low cost, regular training and constant support to its franchisees, CompuChild strives to be the best children's education franchise. CompuChild's enrichment programs help kindle the spirit of constant learning, innovation, critical thinking, and collaboration for the social good at a very young age.
