How Ducklings Franchisees Are Supported Every Step of the Way

When looking at franchise opportunities, it’s important to ask what specific areas you will need to find support. Will you be handed the keys and left on your own? Or will you be guided throughout the process with franchisee onboarding to ensure success?

All Ducklings daycare franchisees are given support through each phase of franchising, from site selection through business operations. Having been around for more than 25 years, we have defined a path toward building a successful business so you won’t have to learn on the fly.

Site Selection:
We identify and evaluate the best real estate options for your child care franchise in every region based on socio-economic factors, traffic patterns, and the existence of competition. We also help guide you through the process of identifying ideal spaces best suited for outdoor play, negotiating your lease, building improvements, and rent deferment. You will never be left on your own wondering how best to handle the next step.

Your Team:
You’re not doing this on your own, so you’ll need to hire a staff. Finding the right people and putting them in the right places is critical to your success. And, hey, we have done this before, so let us guide you. We know what to look for when hiring for specific positions, so don’t sweat about the interview process.

Spreading The Word:
Get ready for your Grand Opening! It’s time to get the word out to families in your market. Our local marketing campaigns will kick off right before you open and continue for the first 3 to 6 months following your grand opening. We help keep the buzz going after your big day so you’ll continue to be top-of-mind in your new area.

Technology Resources:
We provide a number of resources to our children, families, and our franchisees, with clear advantages. Our online assessment tool allows parents to see comprehensive and ongoing reports of their child’s progress. Accurate daily tracking keeps parents in the know with daily emails and occasional photos of their child learning. Business management and accounting software helps you streamline your recordkeeping in one single location. Give us a shout when you have a question; bring us in to see your progress. Your reputation is our reputation and we want you to be successful.

We want to make it clear that we take our franchisee support very seriously. With our years of experience we have collected all of the best practices and share them with every franchisee. This offers the highest level of success with the lowest amount of stress. There’s no learning curve which makes it easy to ace this next adventure.
