Franchise Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy Eyeing Atlanta Expansion


Feb 23, 2016

Early childhood education leader Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy recently announced its plan to target select areas in the north part of Atlanta for expansion in the future. The company, which is based in Duluth and has three decades of experience in the industry, plans to develop another seven to ten franchise locations in North Atlanta communities along the GA-400, I-75 and I-85 corridors. Focus areas include Cartersville, Hamilton Mill, Canton, Cumming, Braselton and Buford, with two new locations already set for the Cumming and Buford areas later in the year.

Kids 'R' Kids International, Inc. Chief Operating Officer Bob Kirschner spoke of the company’s pride when it comes to the strong roots Kids 'R' Kids has in its home state of Georgia. Kirschner also mentioned that the company is thrilled with its established reputation for providing high-quality childhood education, something both the company’s franchise partners and clients have come to expect. It’s the strong success the franchise business has achieved in the Greater Atlanta area that has led the brand to target the region and offer more franchise opportunities there.

Right now, Kids 'R' Kids has 36 locations in Greater Atlanta. Former engineer and longtime franchisee Julie Holliday has owned a Duluth Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy since 1994. She made the move to own her own business after seeing her daughter at the Kids 'R' Kids Suwanee location. Holliday spoke highly of the opportunities to connect to the community the brand has given her, and she also noted her appreciation for the integral role franchisees have played in the brand’s development and growth.
