“We’re proud of the strong roots we’ve established in our home state of Georgia and the reputation for providing high-quality early childhood education that both our parents and franchise partners have come to expect,” said Bob Kirschner, chief operating officer for Kids ‘R’ Kids International, Inc. “Given the incredible success the brand has achieved in the Greater Atlanta area over the years, we’ve decided to focus our efforts by offering additional development opportunities in North Atlanta for qualified entrepreneurs who would like to own a Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy.”
Currently, Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy operates 36 locations in the Greater Atlanta area. Julie Holliday, a former engineer and longtime franchisee of the brand, has owned and operated the Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Duluth since 1994.

“For the last 22 years, I’ve had the opportunity to build trusting relationships among families, teachers and other members of the Duluth community,” said Holliday. “As a business owner, I appreciate the corporate team’s consideration and cooperation in allowing its franchisees to play an integral role in growing and shaping the Kids ‘R’ Kids brand over the years.”
