Bach to Rock Announces Plans to Develop Five New Schools in Arizona, North Carolina and Texas

America’s Music School Continues Aggressive, Nationwide Expansion in New and Existing Markets 

December 14, 2015 // // Bethesda, Md. – Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, announced today the signing of franchise development agreements with several franchise groups to develop five new schools in Arizona, North Carolina and Texas over the next year.

The three franchise groups and their development plans include:

  • New franchisees Wes and June Gross plan to develop three new schools in Arizona. This husband-and-wife duo, who have been married for over 40 years, plan to target areas within Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Chandler and Gilbert and will bring the first Bach to Rock school to the state. Wes and June have always been inspired to create lifelong musicians and plan to open their first location in Fall 2016.
  • Husband-and-wife team Tay and Kelly Foster plan to develop one new school in North Carolina. Attracted to Bach to Rock’s ability to touch the lives of young people in their community, they plan to debut the brand in North Carolina in Spring 2016 and are targeting the Raleigh, Apex and Cary areas.
  • Led by Brian and Beth Donovan, the new franchise group will help expand Bach to Rock’s presence in Texas. The couple is looking forward to tapping into their passion for educating children by utilizing the Bach to Rock brand model. Their first location is planned to open in Summer 2016 in the Dallas suburb of Flower Mound.

“We are excited to continue to expand Bach to Rock‘s presence in Texas and introduce the brand into two new states, North Carolina and Arizona. We’re confident these areas will love and benefit from our variety of music programs,” said Brian Gross, president of Bach to Rock. “With music and arts programs continuing to be cut due to diminishing school budgets, Bach to Rock helps meet the increased need for high-quality music education. We look forward to offering our fun, progressive curriculum to families across the country.”

Bach to Rock franchisees are provided with an array of tools to position them for success including extensive hands-on training, marketing and public relations support and a proprietary web-based management system, among other tools. Franchisees also benefit from multiple revenue streams such as individual and group classes, early childhood education programs, state-of-the-art recording studios, summer and winter camps, birthday parties and more.

Bach to Rock is currently seeking qualified candidates to open franchise locations in markets across the country. Individuals seeking to own and operate a Bach to Rock should posses a minimum net worth of $500,000 and liquid assets of at least $100,000. While music experience or ability is not necessary, candidates should have a passion for music and be able to build a strong team of committed musicians to ensure the school’s success. Franchisees can expect their initial investment to range from approximately $370,000 to $522,500, including a $35,000 franchise fee.
