For Goddard Systems, Inc.,

The Franchise’s Success is All About Relationships For more than 30 years, Goddard Systems, Inc. (GSI), the franchisor of The Goddard School, has been synonymous with high-quality early childhood education. In 2019, Goddard reached a milestone in the brand’s history when the 500th Goddard School opened. Goddard Schools now serve more than 65,000 children across 36 states. By remaining nimble and adapting the business to market and demographic changes to meet the needs of parents and franchisees, GSI is poised to open another 200 Schools over the next five years. As the leading early childhood education franchise system, The Goddard School maintains strong growth year-over-year. In the past five years, the average mature school EBITDA has grown more than 36 percent to $373,321. Mature Schools, which have been in operation for more than 18 months, have grown in monthly revenue year-over-year consecutively for the past 109 months, which is more than nine years of sustained prosperity. GSI believes the secret to the brand’s success lies in the strength of its relationships.

“The location-first development model is the result of decadeslong relationships GSI built with top developers and real estate professionals across the U.S. These key relationships enable GSI and prospective franchisees to select prime real estate opportunities in affluent suburbs.”
