Primrose Schools, an educational franchise founded by Paul and Marcy Erwin of Marietta, GA, will be celebrating the company's 30th anniversary this year. The company, which started as one school in Georgia, has now grown to span 17 different states. "We could not have reached this milestone without the hard work of our support center staff, the dedication of our franchise owners and their staff, and the loyalty of our families," said Jo Kirchner, CEO of Primrose.
Kirchner has been with Primrose Schools for over two decades and has helped grow the business from four schools to over 245. Kirchner has also helped the company be the first to achieve the AdvancED™ Corporation Systems Accreditation. By next year, Primrose expects to add another 25 schools, growing to 312 schools by 2014.
Primrose will be commemorating their 30th anniversary by collecting stories and testimonials at www.IHeartPrimrose.com. The company is also holding a Facebook sweepstakes through September 30th, where one lucky winner will win a music-themed birthday party for a lucky child.
