DUBLIN, Calif., Oct. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- CompuChild's TriValley franchisee Ms. Rupal Shah was recognized by franchise research firm, Franchise Business Review, as one of 2021's Franchise Rock Stars. Ms. Shah was selected from nearly 25,000 franchisees, representing 224 brands that participated in Franchise Business Review's research in the past 18 months. Initial nominations for this competitive award were made by various franchise brand leaderships who were looking for franchisees who set admirable examples when it came to leadership, business acumen, financial and professional success, and contributing to their community.
"There are so many success stories out there and thousands of inspiring franchise owners who are living their dreams of business ownership that it was incredibly difficult to narrow down the list," said Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. "In the end, we chose individuals who are exceptional examples of achieving success through the franchise model and exemplify a strong work ethic and a real commitment to their business and community. The franchise owners on this year's list have shown that with hard work, perseverance and the support of a strong franchise system, anyone can find success, no matter their background or previous experience. We are thrilled to recognize these individuals as Franchise Rock Stars."
CompuChild's TriValley, California franchisee Ms. Shah did an amazing job of adapting her business to the new challenges posed by COVID. All her programs were in-person when COVID hit. She went out of her way to make sure that her in-person programs could be completed successfully. In her robotics engineering program, she allowed all her students to check out robotic kits that they could use to build models at home while she and her instructors helped them with programming and engineering concepts remotely via the use of online tools. It was a challenge to disinfect all the robotic kits and to figure out a safe process for parents to check those out for a week. She repeated this process on a weekly basis so every student could continue to enjoy the benefits of her hands-on robotics program. Not only did she put in the hard work with full dedication, she was able to achieve this with a 100% success rate and no infections. As the pandemic prolonged, she was able to pivot to offering her after school enrichment programs in an online format with the help of the CompuChild team.
Talking about Ms. Shah's great success story, a senior spokesperson of CompuChild stated, "CompuChild has been franchising since 2001 and the franchise has been a recipient of various prestigious awards and honors over the past two decades, but this award was really special as it came at a time when the whole education system faced a severe challenge due to COVID. We believe Rupal serves as a great example of a woman owned business that has built a reputation through its dedication to quality children's education in technology and entrepreneurship. It's not a surprise that her franchise was the top performing CompuChild franchise in 2020."
Ms. Shah was quite appreciative of the support that she received from the CompuChild franchise brand leadership throughout the pandemic. Acknowledging her outstanding achievement, she mentioned, "All our programs were in-person when COVID hit. I approached the CompuChild team to brainstorm about how to minimize the impact of COVID on our ongoing programs. The corporate team was extremely responsive and thought about each franchisee's specific situation to come up with tailored solutions. While we were coming up with ways to continue our in-person classes by implementing innovative approaches, it would have been very hard for us to survive if the corporate leadership had not come up with several online courses in a very short period of time. These initiatives broadened our suite of after school technology classes for kids and now we have a plethora of in-person and online programs that we can offer to our students. I had done extensive research on various children's education franchises before purchasing a CompuChild territory and I am really happy that I made the right choice."
