October 13, 2017 // Franchising.com // Palo Alto, CA - theCoderSchool - recently identified as one of Entrepreneur magazine’s hottest brands - has announced that a new school is set to open on October 28 in East Cobb. The school will aim to show the next generation of kids how inspiring and exciting technology can be, while providing coding skills that are in high demand and applicable across all industries.
The new school - located at 3162 Johnson Ferry Rd. - will be owned and operated by Jerry and Kim Massey. The couple - understanding the value of learning how to code at a young age, and adamant about the advantage it gives kids from a logical and creative-thinking perspective - saw a need for the concept in the East Cobb area, and are excited to fill that void in the community. They ultimately plan to open seven or eight additional theCoderSchool locations throughout the greater Atlanta metro.
“We are thrilled to introduce theCoderSchool to East Cobb,” said Jerry, currently a leader at a Fortune 500 tech company. “There is clearly a massive need for coders and programmers in this country right now. Through our 2-on-1, project-based approach, theCoderSchool fills a much-needed vacuum in getting kids involved in learning how to code early - that way there won’t be a steep learning curve and fear associated with learning to code later in life.”
“When finding and building relationships with franchise partners, our goal is always to find those who are truly passionate about setting kids up with a positive, life-long relationship with technology and coding,” added Lynn. “Jerry and Kimberley care deeply about this mission, and we are confident they will bring our level of commitment to kids and parents in East Cobb and show the community just how fun learning to code can be.”
theCoderSchool is also a proud founding member of the International Alliance of Youth Coding Educators. The IAYCE is an alliance of global partners whose goal is to further coding education for youth around the world.
Founded in 2014 and franchising since 2016, theCoderSchool, a Silicon Valley-based children’s enterprise franchise, provides computer programming lessons to children ages 7 to 18. Recently identified as one of Entrepreneur magazine’s hottest brands, theCoderSchool has 16 schools operating in seven states and continues to expand its national footprint with several locations in development in major U.S. markets.
