Abrakadoodle Surpasses 1 Million Kids Worldwide!

Corporate Open House Kicks-Off Celebrations at Locations Worldwide

July 29, 2013 // Franchising.com // Sterling, VA – Abrakadoodle hosted an open house celebration from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm on Monday, July 22nd at its new global headquarters located at 46030 Manekin Plaza, Suite 110 in Sterling. Abrakadoodle is celebrating accomplishing -- ahead of schedule -- a five year goal to reach more than one million students in its creative art programs for children. Guests ranged from local franchise owners, business associates, representatives from the International Franchise Association (IFA), as well as friends, family members and supporters. Attendees took part in creating unusual mini-masks in honor of artist Alexander Calder’s birthday on this date, emphasizing the importance of risk-taking and uniqueness in art!

“We want to thank the kids, parents, franchise owners, teachers, staff, schools, studios and sites for helping us reach this milestone!” commented Mary Rogers, MA.Ed, CEO and co-founder of Abrakadoodle, Inc. “When Rosemarie Hartnett and I franchised this concept in 2004, we knew there was a void in comprehensive children’s art education that also fosters a child’s imagination. Having surpassed our one-million student goal, we look to the future with great excitement as we build a world of creative kids’ one child at a time.”

Abrakadoodle is building a world of creative kids, one child at a time. Abrakadoodle takes pride in being the multi-arts franchise company that is committed to honoring individual self-expression while children discover artists, art forms, art styles and comprehensive art techniques in an environment that is always positive and encouraging. Abrakadoodle students exhibit confidence and joy in their creative pursuits as they prepare for the jobs of the future that will reward innovators with excellent creativity and problem-solving skills. To commemorate Abrakadoodle’s million student milestone, children at participating Abrakadoodle locations worldwide will be taking part this fall in special art lessons, activities and creative crafts that honor the uniqueness of each student. Students in Abrakadoodle’s program will also enjoy commemorative stickers, aprons and other items that honor each child as a one-in-a-million.
