Sylvan Learning Identifies Atlanta as Next Priority for Growth, Promoting STEM Education and College Prep in Booming Tech Market
Atlanta, Georgia is one of the few major US markets with territories available within the iconic 40-year-old supplemental and enrichment learning leader’s franchise system.
This year, Sylvan Learning is celebrating two exciting milestones: The household name is ringing in its 40th year of student success, and as of February, the brand now has a presence in each of the 50 U.S. states. The leading supplemental learning franchise has certainly experienced tremendous growth over the years—and now has its sights on Atlanta, Georgia, as one of its next priority markets for growth.
As a respected brand with unparalleled name recognition and reputation for proven results, many Sylvan Learning markets around the nation are fully sold out. Atlanta, however, is one of the few major U.S. cities that still has prime areas available. Sylvan Learning has identified the potential to add at least nine new centers in Atlanta, specifically in the metropolitan area and including Jonesboro, Smyrna, Country Lake, Lithonia, Buckhead, Roswell and Sandy Springs.
“The first Sylvan Learning Center in Atlanta opened back in 1985, so the brand has a proven presence of success, and as the city continues to expand, we would like to ensure local students have access to the best personalized learning resources possible,” noted John McAuliffe, CEO.
Sylvan Learning has 10 existing centers in Georgia, including a brand new location in Alpharetta slated to open in the early fall. Franchisee An Tran and her husband have turned their decade of experience working with youth in the church into their next business venture.
“We want to continue to do what we love and get involved in our community to help other kids be successful in their education,” said Tran. “There’s definitely a need for tutoring services in this area, and there are not many competitors.”
