Early Learning Child Care Franchises?

   

Hello Everyone,

I have owned and operated a casual dining franchise concept over the last 10 years. Basically the restaurant business is the only thing I know. It's a pretty tough business and you must know how to control your cost. I really would like to go into something better in terms of income and quality of life. Recenty my wife and I were at a family member's wedding and we met somebody who owned and operated an early learning childcare business. I was totally surprised when she told me her earnings and the fundamentals of the business. It amazed me how successful she has been with this concept. Does anybody have any information about this industry and any franchises?

Thanks,

Jeff Tanner

Rainbow Academy Franchise Opportunity

 Jeff,

Most of my 26 years in franchising was spent in fast food, retail, internet and casual dining as a multi-unit franchisee and franchisor. I was also surprised with what I found with this industry.

There are some early learning child care franchises out there, but from spending 6 months researching the industry prior to joining Rainbow Academy, I listed Rainbow Academy, Primrose and Goddard as my top 3. You can be successful in all three, I just liked Rainbow Academy better due to the franchisee having more of a family atmosphere with corporate and pay less fees. As an example, the franchise fee for Goddard is $135,000 and Rainbow Academy is $50,000.

After 15 years in child care, Rainbow Academy has completed their first year of franchising with twelve New Jersey franchises with six more planned for early 2012. They are currently expanding throughout New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. You do not need to have a background in education, we actually prefer franchises to possess strong business management experience and hire a Director to handle the educational aspects of the center.

WHY RAINBOW ACADEMY?
- Family owned business with 15 year record of success in child care
- Recession resistant business. The industry is expected to grow 9.2% annually
- A business that offers a quality of life. No nights and no weekends
- A business that offers a NEED service and not a WANT service
- Recurring revenue
- Strong earnings potential
- Impressive earnings claim (Available for viewing)

Salespeople are welcome

TTaylor: We don't mind selling on Blue MauMau. After all, one cannot invest in a good franchise if no one tells why the concept is good. It's an important function.

Public relations companies are welcome to post and answer questions by readers on Blue MauMau. Competitors, franchisees and subject matter experts may chime in and challenge what is said in your postings. Salespersons who want to spin a franchise concept in the most favorable light are welcome. However, you will be challenged in the Public Forums at a level that you may be uncomfortable with. You may need to up your game. My suggestion for brokers and salespersons is to pull yourself out of selling and more into the consultant mode —answer what 3 franchise concepts do you think are best in the sector and why? That helps a reader determine your knowlege of the sector.

If you have a company press release, make sure you categorize your article as "pr" when you post. Warning, many subject matter experts tend to go after new, unproven concepts with a vengence. Their antenna goes up when sales spin is put out unchallenged.

Franchisees may be angry that you've dared post in a forum that they've created about what's wrong with their particular franchise. You'll recognize those areas because they only concentrate on one brand and there are few posts that are positive about the concept. If so, create your own forum on BMM. Be honest with readers in the forum description about what you want to do — e.g. "I really like this brand and I plan to post important news as it happens on what this brand is doing right."

Shills typically pose an open question asking what franchise they should buy only to quickly answer it with a particular franchise brand that they want to sell. Few things make readers angrier than when they sense dishonesty.

Commenters, be civil. We don't mind people selling. We have CEOs in articles that sell their brands all the time. However, for those who challenge, please challenge the facts, not the person. Avoid name calling.

Pathetic

Troy - Very weak and obvious contrived set up

Posted by Guestpert on March 9th, 2012

????

Who are you a competior?  You need to get you facts straight before you blast people.

I was on a chat  the other night with people looking for a buisness opportunity and one mentioned this forum. I tried to make a post that evening to promote our franchise and it did not go through. I noticed the next day one of the people in the chat posted (Jeff Tanner). Did you ever think people chat and post on any other board than BlueMauMau.

Why dont you ask the moderator to see where the two post and IP addresses. And if your a Mod, then it makes me sick that I was responsible before in anothe concept spending money on BM.

P.S.  Very weak and obvious No Research or Facts

Your first mistake was when you

Your first mistake was when you "tried to make a post that evening to promote our franchise ".

That is not the nature of the BMM forum and it will rightly be regarded as mere shilling.

Here is why

Ok, did not know because I saw a post by Hurricane WIngs and thought you could. But please don't accuse somebody for something if you dont have the facts. This is only people or companies look bad.

Rainbow Academy Phony Conversation

It's pretty clear that the Rainbow Franchise, Jeff Tanner and Troy Taylor conversation is fake. Just put on to drum up Rainbow franchise leads.

Rainbow Academy-Troy Taylor

Troy Taylor is no a fake. If Troy Taylor IS a fake then I have wasted the last six months researching business & franchise investments from across the spectrum, having decided to join the Rainbow Academy group, and that for me and my future, putting my faith in Troy and the other top-notch professionals at Rainbow Academy are a perfect match for me. I plan to sign with them next week to join their team and I am both excited and thankful to Troy for his guidance and support through this process. In answer to the initial question as to whether child care francises are a good business model, if you are serious please talk to Troy as I have found him in the months I have spoken with him to be extremely knowledgeable, very professional, and a wonderfully insightful person has has had a lot of business success. He's the real deal in my eyes. I felt bad reading the negative diatribe from people who obviously don't have the facts to back up their comments, which made them look a bit silly and weak unfortunately. I have seen two of the Rainbow Academy locations in NJ and the idea and premise as well as their core values are a sure recipe for success, and one that after months of study, I believe are a great business model. Troy is an extremely positive person and if you are interested in a great franchise opportunity like I was before I decided to join, then contact him and you will see what I am saying is 100% true.

Where Oh Where is Jeff Tanner?

Is Jeff Tanner a legitimate prospective child care franchisee or is he the set up person for Rainbow Child Care and Troy Taylor?

Posted by Guestpert on March 11th, 2012

Wow! Sorry I got on here.

I had some questions. I posted. A few days later I checked back and saw a lot of garbage posted and directed at me. I only found one substantive post back to me. From the Rainbow concept. I'm shocked to say the least that my credibility was called into question from someone calling themselves Guestpert. I can't tell if that person is an admin or not. I'm only going to say one more thing. The franchise business is tough enough without sites claiming to help you actually only call your sincereity into question. Very unprofessional and I will be mentioning that to any franchise I contact through this site. Now, if Guestpert is actually another user searching for information, then why don;t you juyst shut your pie hole and let these people say what they want. *I'll* decide if it's useful to me.

Jeff Tanner Protestations a Bit Over the Top

You 'll have to perform a better act if you want fool folks here. Rainbow Academy is some franchise that no one has heard of and you expect us to believe that you and Troy made some kind of franchise love connection?

Posted by Guestpert on March 12th, 2012

Dear Guestpert

Look buddy I have been in the franchise business for 26 years. Most of that time I have been a multi-unit franchisee and a franchisor. I sold my stock to my partner after taking a chain to 19 states and went on vacation. Rainbow Academy found me and I spent one year researching them and getting to know them and came away amazed enough to join them. They have been in business since 1997 and are very successful just like Primrose and Goddard but less fees and they even are ahead of the tech curve with a few things. I was impressed that they first got established for 15 years before they launched into franchising and made their first few franchisees guinea pigs like most franchises do.

I simply was on a chat and found Jeff and other people. I saw the ad Hurricane Grill posted and thought I could do the same. I have no idea who or where Jeff Tanner lives. I would suggest to you or anybody that before you trash somebody you do your homework. If the Mods had any respect for companies and posters they would delete your post slandering me. I would suggest you check into the concept and industry because I think it is a hell of an investment and only wish I had got into it 26 years ago!

Good luck.

P.S. Have you ever owned a franchise?

 

 

Posted by TTaylor on March 12th, 2012

Interesting Troy

What franchises have you owned and which franchisers have you worked for? Regarding Rainbow franchise how can you state they are good investment when theydon't have any franchisees who can verify it? So tell us what makes Rainbow such a great investment?

Posted by Guestpert on March 12th, 2012

Last Attempt

I think it is a great franchise and investment because I spent an entire year studying the company, industry and even the competition. I come from the restaurant business where you work long hours 7days per week and have to deal with many employees along with many variable cost  like food, labor, liquor, beer, etc. Let's not forget the fine margins we work on. After a year looking at everything I found, I jumped on board and that is all. Again, I wish I had done this long ago. It is also nice having a business where you are home each night and weekends.

Like I said before, after 15 years the company started franchising and YES they do have franchisees. We just signed a group from PA last week and we have more!  I happened to be in one franchisees center last week that is running at 97% to 100% capacity and she is currently trying to lease 5,000 more square feet.

Look I am not here to fight with you because I am too busy and don't have to prove anything to anybody. I have made my mark in franchising. I did not land with Rainbow because I needed a job. I was just trying to help somebody out and hopefully find a good franchisee. I would suggest you know 100% before you go on the attack and slander somebody. If you are seriously looking at a franchise opportunity, I suggest you look into this industry. Go to other companies and check them out and make up your own mind. If you are here to start a fight, then I'm not the guy for you. I am kind of tired of this site. I just think think the Mods should not allow people to trash other people and I'm and good luck.

Take care and I wish you luck.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3YqrjWdr5AQ

Rainbow has been franchising how long?

Rainbow has developed how many new child care centers since they began franchising?

Troy you haven't answered what franchises you've owned and what franchises you sold?

Posted by Guestpert on March 13th, 2012

Rainbow Academy Troy Taylor Disconnect

I have it on good authority that Rainbow Academy has opened no new franchises since it began franchising a year ago. It is also misleading for Troy Taylor to portray that a franchise bought a franchise, built an 8000 sqft school and it is 97% full all in less than a year of Rainbow franchising history?

Posted by Guestpert on March 13th, 2012

Whats your problem?

Look Guestpert why dont you call me on the phone . I will be happy to direct you to a center tomorrow that is running around 97% capacity and is trying to lease 5,000 more square feet. I cannot tell you what this franchise owner is doing but she can. Maybe then that will keep you from slandering people.

By the way Guestpert, I never said a franchisee bought a center a year ago and now is looking for more space. It is a mature center. We have sold franchises since we stared franchising. We sold one last week in Pa.

I am curious, are you an angry ex -franchisee that failed before and hate franchise companies or are you just a tire kicking wanna bee with no money and you spend your life bothering franchise companies for packets? Why do you first look for the worst in people and companies without knowing anything you are talking about. It just amazes me how people live to troll on boards like this and stir it up. It also amazes me how the moderators on this board allow you and people like you to spew their slander.

This is my last post. This board is very unprofessional and I now have no respect for the mods for allowing these post. I prefer to go be successful some more :):)

.P.S. I am glad there were no message boards when McDonalds started. I am sure you would have had a problem with them too

So the Rainbow Academy Troy Taylor Con Game Goes On

"I will be happy to direct you to a center tomorrow that is running around 97% capacity and is trying to lease 5,000 more square feet. I cannot tell you what this franchise owner is doing but she can."

So is this how you get leads to buy a Rainbow Franchise by steering them to a franchisee who was a former employee or who bought an existing center from Rainbow? You get this franchisee to make the financial claim for you.

Real cute Troy Taylor, old scamming technique. Does Guy Falzarano know what you're doing?

Posted by Guestpert on March 15th, 2012

Hey Guestpert, 1. I know

Hey Guestpert,

1. I know who you are.

2. There is no scamming technique. When I was a franchisee I had to ask questions and do my due dilegence. The franchise salesman could not tell me what each franchisee was doing. So I had to go to them (Franchisees) and ask them how they were doing. It's called doing your due diligence. Just so you know genius, I also tell people that just because one franchisee is doing great or bad, that does not mean you will do the same. You put 100 franchisee in a location and you will probably get 100 different resuts. The key is follow the system and take care of your staff, customers and run a good operation. I am slo tired of you putting words in my mouth and slandering me.

Let me ask you a question. If a franchisee was once an employee of any franchise concept either a restaurant manager for Five Guy's Burgers or a Child Care Franchise and then they approached the franchisor and ask if they could become a franchisee what in the hell is wrong with that? If they then take their life savings and invest into a franchise, what's the difference? I can promise you one things Guestpert, if that franchisee is not making money and they are not receiving support, they will be just as angry of a person as you are.

When I was in the 101st Airborne Division, some of the best officers came from having the experience of being in the NCO ranks first. I would love to have franchisees sign all day long that have first proven themself first successfuly in a center prior to signing because this way you know what you are getting. But the majority in any franchise will not come this way.

Anyway, I am tired of playing with you. You are a cancer and looking for a fight. God only knows why your so angry with the world.

Troy Taylor & Rainbow Academy Are Angry

Troy, it seems as though you are creating phony shill conversations, you have misleading claims and are steering prospects to franchisees who have agreed to make a prepared earnings claim for Rainbow Academy, right?

It's not about "faith" or a "positive person"

Bob says he's:".... decided to join the Rainbow Academy group, and that for me and my future, putting my faith in Troy..."

This is not about getting religion, it's a business investment. I have no horse in this race and no nothing about this person Troy, or if this is a good franchise brand. BUT it isn't about "faith" AND snake oil salesmen (I have no idea if he's one or not) OF COURSE would normally be "positive".  C'mon, think about it, how many negative sales people or con artists are there? The problem of course is telling which are which.

Beware of selling or posting positive experiences..

Your name and unflattering comments will be posted in order to smear you in search rankings. This is how they roll.

I don't need....

I don't need another bitching and moaning site. There are plenty of those around. I want information and really do not care to hear bad things about franchising. I need a positive site where I can go to get information. Does anyone else feel the same?
