Brian Riddick thinks a lot of the value and power of education. So much so that he purchased and began operating Huntington Learning Center franchises in Oregon, Texas, and Washington. He's seen how the tutoring services he offers can lead to real change in people's lives. And now he has been recognized by CNBC and their research partner Franchise Business Review as one of the nation's top franchisees.
Only one franchisee in each state was identified as being one of America's Star Franchisees. Riddick owns Huntington franchises in Bellevue, Washington and San Antonio, Texas, and previously owned centers in Boise, ID, and Beaverton, OR. Huntington Learning Center was the only tutoring company included in the America's Star Franchisees listing.
"This is such a tremendous honor and one that only motivates me further to make my Huntington Learning Center franchises as successful as possible," says Riddick, who was chosen as the top Oregon franchisee. "To me, success means helping as many children as possible. Whether students come to Huntington to improve their grades or prepare for the SAT, we are dedicated to guiding all students to achieve their goals. I believe that the strong performance of my centers is the result of a hard-working team of people, a strong brand behind me, and a passion for helping kids."
Franchise Business Review surveys thousands of franchise owners across the country each year to publish a ranking of the top franchise opportunities based on owner satisfaction. For the America's Star Franchisees ranking, they also assessed franchisees' financial success based on three metrics: financial performance, strong proof of concept in multiple markets and clean review in terms of audits, litigation, bankruptcy and high turnover. Franchisees were surveyed about their overall satisfaction and regard for franchise management.
The only publication dedicated exclusively to the hottest topic in franchising - Multi-Unit and Multi-Brand Franchisees.
A unique event because it is highly influenced by its advisory board, consisting of the very best multi-unit franchisees. The board works diligently to ensure that the conference delivers on its promise of being the best platform for franchisees to learn how to grow their businesses.
