Tierra Encantada Coming to Charlotte and Houston
Language immersion child-care center signs first multi-unit deal
October 11, 2019 // Franchising.com // Minneapolis, Minn. - Tierra Encantada – a rapidly growing immersion education brand, has awarded a multi-unit franchise agreement to an ownership group that will develop two locations in Charlotte, North Carolina and one in Houston, Texas.
The new agreement belongs to Kash Akhtar, Aasif Syed Zahid and Sirikul Prasertsomboon. The ownership group has plenty of experience working in franchising, as they also own and operate 11 tax locations and two boxing gyms. They plan on using their experience in franchising to make their Tierra Encantada locations a success.
“We believe that Tierra Encantada is a very strong concept that provides a needed service to the future generations of our country,” said Kash. “Our franchise management experience coupled with Tierra Encantada’s incredible curriculum and programs will be a great asset to the Charlotte and Houston communities.”
The group is looking to open its first location in May of 2020 in Charlotte. The ownership group will look to open the third center in Houston after the first two are opened in Charlotte.
Tierra Encantada currently has four locations open and operating in Minnesota (Eagan, Bryant, Windom and Seward) and is excited to be expanding outside the North Star State.
“We are thrilled to have Kash, Aasif, and Sirikul join the Tierra Encantada team,” said Tierra Encantada CEO and founder Kristen Denzer. “We look for franchisees that are business savvy - and they bring tremendous experience to the table. Early childhood education is a growing sector - and I have no doubt that their locations in Charlotte and Houston will be a great success.”
Tierra Encantada’s early education programs offer care to children between the ages of six-weeks-old and six-years-old. These programs involve the use of an immersive curriculum that exposes children to the Spanish language through teaching, song and conversation. Tierra Encantada also provides children with delicious organic food options that help showcase different cultures’ cuisines. The combination of Spanish immersion and cultural experience provides children with a well-rounded learning experience; and the use of cloth diapers, LED lights, and solar panels puts an emphasis on environmental care.
To augment its growth, Tierra Encantada is seeking passionate and energetic franchise partners. Including a franchise fee of $50,000, the estimated total investment to open a Tierra Encantada franchise is between $591,520 and $1,055,000. With flexible business models and unparalleled support, the Tierra Encantada franchise opportunity is one-of-a-kind. Prior child-care experience and/or an ability to speak Spanish are not requisites for franchisees.
