SCHOOL OF ROCK NAMED BEST CHILDREN’S SERVICE AND EDUCATION FRANCHISE FOR SECOND YEAR IN A ROW & EARNS REGIONAL CHAMPION HONOR FOR THE AMERICAS IN THE 2022 GLOBAL FRANCHISE AWARDS.
School of Rock is honored to be named the winner of the 2022 Global Franchise Award for Best Children’s Service and Education Franchise for the second year in a row. The Global Franchise Awards also added a new category in 2022, Regional Champions, which was awarded to School of Rock for the Americas Region.
“We are proud to be recognized again for our global leadership in child enrichment. Being additionally singled out as the Americas Regional Champion amongst the thousands of concepts in our home region speaks to the power of purpose driving profit,” said Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock. “Our extraordinary franchisees, school teams, and corporate support staff remain focused on bringing the transformational experience of performance-based music education and our compelling business model to markets throughout the globe.”
The Global Franchise Awards, now in its fifth year, seek to honor the most exceptional franchise brands and spread awareness about franchising. The awards School of Rock accepted highlight the brand’s highly differentiated model, track record of success and additional global scalability.
The franchise’s global footprint continues to grow rapidly with over 500 School of Rock locations open or in development in 15 countries: the U.S.A., Canada, Mexico, Peru, Chile, Brazil, Colombia, Paraguay, Portugal, Spain, Ireland, South Africa, Philippines, Taiwan, and Australia. School of Rock’s mission to enrich lives through the power of performance-based music education is made simple with a concept that travels well, due to low logistical, supply chain, technological, language and operational complexity.
Popular music and child enrichment are universal, and the business model allows customization to celebrate local popular music.
“Few brands resonate equally in markets as different as Minneapolis and Madrid, but the School of Rock model has universal appeal,” said Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock.
Comprehensive musical education
School of Rock’s concept is more potent than traditional music programs, combining private lessons powered by the patented School of Rock Method with weekly ensemble practices. Students learn theory, practice, and life skills through intensive, but fun preparation for live shows in real venues. Group learning teaches both technical and soft skills and this revolutionary approach increases retention, results and brand consideration. The program serves children as young as four years old through grandparents who want to release their inner rock star. This core program, combined with camps, workshops, global touring opportunities and other special events is helping us build the largest community of music creators in the world.
School of Rock understands what it takes to succeed and has a proven track record going back to the mid-’90s. Over the years, it has developed the techniques, the business processes, and the franchisee-centric culture that provides franchisees a blueprint for their own success. It is excited and passionate about its current international growth and future potential. The criteria is simple; if there is a love of Rock music and a desire to learn in a group format, then there is potential for School of Rock.
School of Rock is searching for well-qualified candidates interested in acquiring the master franchise rights for their countries. Whether it be the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Japan, Korea or Singapore, among others, there is an opportunity to bring the most revolutionary music education school in the world home to your country.
