The most common refrain from all preschool franchisors is usually to go to great lengths to explain how they view franchisee businesses as partnerships and not anything else. The problem is that with any royalty based support structure, partnership is just lip-service, nothing more! That's why we bring on table - Non franchise preschool model
For starters, no discussion post set up is ever going to be about commercials or royalties. It's only going to be about the curriculum, the delivery, training, recruitment, parental concerns, etc. These are things that assume only peripheral significance for any preschool franchisor. This would resonate strongly with existing preschool franchise owners as they’d know exactly what we mean!
We offer a one-time investment with zero royalties and commissions. We co-implement the curriculum with you and co-administer the ILC along with you forever. All the while, the attempt would be to make your brand resonate amongst your local community through strong marketing and rigorous implementation of a fantastic curriculum. We do charge for our services from second year. But these charges are both nominal and optional – meaning that you pay for the value that you see or you dont! There’s no royalty associated with this. It’s a term we loathe.
This is what one expects from a partnership. You contribute, you earn. We set exceptionally high standards for ourselves and believe honestly that we can deliver service that you’d happily pay for. That’s the bedrock for the kind of partnership that WE KNOW will last! It will keep our team on its toes to provide service to you and will align you to deliver a world-class curriculum at your ILC.
I would encourage you to read a little bit more on why we genuinely feel that franchising, which although is an amazing business growth strategy for many different businesses, for the education industry and specifically preschooling segment, it is the wrong strategy for the long term. No wonder, there are so many fly by night preschool franchisors operating today with the focus squarely on selling solutions is disappearing!
More on this on our blog article which was written a long time back reproduced on the teeny beans forum more recently.
That's it from me for now. Happy schooling!
