Multi-Cultural Approach to Education Helps KLA Schools Stand Out at International Franchise Expo

Company Uses IFE Platform to Announce Franchise Development in New States

June 17, 2015 // // MIAMI – Continuing to set the standard for upscale early childhood education, KLA Schools will introduce prospective franchise partners to the company’s innovative and multi-cultural franchise concept at the International Franchise Expo (IFE).

The IFE, held June 18-20 at The Javits Center in New York City, is the largest franchise expo of its kind, showcasing more than 450 franchise opportunities. At the expo, KLA Schools CEO, Roberto Ortega, will be at Booth No. 338 to meet with potential franchise partners passionate about making a difference in their local communities, and to discuss the company’s development opportunities across the East Coast and the U.S.

KLA Schools’ visual and interactive booth display at IFE will introduce prospective franchisees to the foundation the brand is built upon - the Reggio-Emilia philosophy, a constructivist theory developed in Italy after World War II. Visitors will additionally be provided with a glimpse into the state-of-the-art learning centers that have the education industry buzzing.

“Our continued excellence in early childhood education presents a solid business investment opportunity,” said Roberto Ortega, CEO of KLA Schools. “Our centers stand out within the industry because of the Reggio-Emilia philosophy and our focus on cultivating a multi-cultural environment where children can comfortably express themselves. KLA Schools is bringing an international approach to education that we know has the potential to be successful in the New York City region and across the United States.”

For the company, the IFE comes on the heels of exciting development news. A recently signed franchise agreement will bring the first KLA Schools to Portland - making Oregon the latest state to introduce the concept. Earlier this year, franchises were awarded in Texas, California and Florida – the company anticipates opening seven more schools within the next two years. With a focus on small-scale growth that maintains the high-quality schools in operation, KLS Schools is looking to award additional locations to qualified franchisees who are passionate about education.
