We continually research and analyze franchise investments in diverse range of industries. One industry in particular that has gained in popularity among our foreign national clients has been the childhood and adolescent education industry. Similar to how we at Visa Franchise have approached other our research into other industries, we have been reviewing education franchises on key success characteristics that other successful franchises have been shown to process.
Franchise concepts within the education industry that address the educational needs of children to teenagers have received much interest in recent years due to the tremendous size of the market as well as the opportunity to cater to parents’ growing interest in the education of their children. Now, more than ever, education has become the pathway for individuals to find gainful employment and earn a living. Parents know that their children’s acceptance into a prestigious university enables them to have a wide range of professional opportunities once they graduate and join the workforce. This approach helps children and teenagers obtain an advantage for when they are in the job market by improving social skills, providing academic support, building confidence, and teaching them technology concepts. The childhood adolescent education industry includes a wide range of areas, including: traditional schools, Montessori schools, enrichment programs for school subjects, and specialized curriculums in robotics, coding, engineering, and programming. A number of franchise concepts have been thoroughly developed and successfully implemented in recent years to address the growing demand in the childhood and adolescent education market.
Growing Segments of the Childhood and Adolescent Education Market
It helps to see the enormous size of the market in order to understand the promising opportunities within the childhood and adolescent industry. Below are some of the figures:
- Total enrollment of students attending school in the U.S. for Pre-kindergarten through 12th grade is over 58.6 million
- There are 26 million children under the age of 6, of which 15 million require child care
- 68% of mothers with children under the age of 6 are in the workforce
- Education as a whole in the US is worth $1.3 trillion dollars and is over 7.3% of the GDP
These figures tell a promising story to those interested in making a franchise investment within the broad education industry. It is a very dynamic market with a number of compelling segments that we at Visa Franchise have identified as having the most upside in the coming years.
Hybrid of a childcare center, including the curriculum and philosophy of the world-renowned Montessori approach and an inspired art & science program. Many studies show that the education environment a child, even as young as a few months old, has a profound impact on their overall development. For this reason, Montessori Schools are becoming much more popular in the U.S. However, the majority of schools that have Montessori in their name do not abide by the Montessori teaching principles. It is important to ensure that the Montessori franchise concept follows the Montessori teachings as the schools that most closely align with the Montessori principles are the ones that parents choose for their children. We at Visa Franchise have extensively studied the Montessori school franchises in the U.S. in order to find the most compelling Montessori franchise investment concepts that would also qualify for an E-2, L-1, or EB-5 investor visa.
Enrichment (STEAM) Learning
Familiarity with technology has become necessary in today’s world. However, many traditional elementary and middle schools have failed to update their teaching curriculums in order to address the increasing need for education in this discipline. In recent years a number of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) based franchises have begun to offer enrichment learning to children in their communities in order to better and more quickly address the market’s need for the teaching of these skills. STEAM education franchises offer before and after school classes, in-school workshops, winter and summer break camps, and a variety of additional profit centers. Visa Franchise has researched many STEAM education franchise concepts, a number of which are poised for success in many markets throughout the U.S. We are quite convinced that these concepts will only continue to grow as they address the desire of parents to teach their kids STEAM skills that are necessary in a 21st century economy.
Schooling and College Placement Tutoring
The supplement education market is even biggest than the enrichment education market. Many parents seek out tutors that can help their kids learn subjects that they might be having difficulty learning. Many supplement education tutoring franchises exist in the U.S., though many have an extremely high failure rate as they have flawed business models that do not work out for their franchisees. Therefore, in order to operate successfully in this space, a tutoring franchise concept must have an innovative business model that adapts to the changing education market. We at Visa Franchise have identified a few such concepts that are successfully operating in the competitive tutoring franchise education market.
The education franchise market addressing children to teenagers is full of diverse investment opportunities. Due to the size of the market and large number of franchise concepts, it is vital to be able to discern the successful, growing franchise concepts from franchise concepts with flawed business models. Visa Franchise’s continuous research into the education franchise market has allowed us to find the most promising franchise concepts for our clients looking to invest in a business that qualifies for an E-2, L-1, or EB-5 investor visa. We plan to continue to revisit this industry as it continues to evolve to address the 21st century education market.
