How The Goddard School Franchise Supports Its Franchisees

October 6th, 2015 by The Franchise Development Team

The beauty of The Goddard School franchise model is that franchisees go into business for themselves, not by themselves. Our support team of knowledgeable professionals assists franchisees in the following areas.

  • Real Estate and Construction – No matter where Goddard School franchises are opened, we are there to help guide franchisees through the process. A Real Estate Representative assists in locating a suitable site, while a Project Manager assists with the development and construction phases;
  • Finance – Our finance team ensures that the loan process for each franchisee goes as smoothly as possible. There is one point of contact at each financial institution who knows The Goddard School inside and out. This means that each franchisee works with an experienced professional who has helped many other Goddard School franchisees;
  • Operational Support – Franchise Business Consultants (FBCs) from our Field Operations team regularly visit Schools and check in with franchisees to provide ongoing support. Each FBC is also available via email and phone to assist franchisees. A team of trained experts guides each franchisee through the opening process as well;
  • Training – Think you need education experience to open a Goddard School franchise? Think again. Our team teaches franchisees the skills they need to operate a high-quality preschool. Designed specifically for Goddard School teachers and directors, Goddard Systems University (GSU) provides ongoing training and faculty development;
  • Quality Assurance – To help reinforce the training GSU provides, our Quality Assurance (QA) team regularly reviews each School’s procedures and program performance. It also offers guidance on how to continuously improve each School for the benefit of the children and their families;
  • Marketing, Advertising & PR – Getting word out about The Goddard School is crucial for lead generation and enrollment. Our Marketing, Advertising & PR department develops the marketing and advertising materials to help franchisees create awareness of their Schools through radio, television, search engine marketing and more;
  • Information Technology – The Goddard School Franchise encourages the use of computers to keep track of School records, and many of our tools for franchisees can be found online. Our IT team will help you with any computer-related questions or issues you might have, and our in-house Help Desk provides hands-on, continual support via phone and email.
