October was a huge month for Best in Class Education Center — we signed a record-breaking number of franchise agreements! We’re absolutely thrilled to be on our way to serving more families and communities with first-rate supplemental education programs. Of course, this success wouldn’t be possible without the hard work and dedication of our franchise partners. These entrepreneurs will be bettering the lives of students and broadening BiC’s reach, and we want to recognize their accomplishments!
Dr. Nirihar Shah has signed an agreement for his second location in Tampa. He holds the crown as being the first franchise partner to start a BiC Center in Florida! Nirihar is a seasoned educator who is taking advantage of the Best in Class Teacher Incentive. The program provides educators with franchise fee discounts for the first three centers launched. Nirihar’s new location is set to kickoff in January 2018.
We’re not done with Florida just yet! Ms. Rajitha Nidadavolu is also bringing her talents to Tampa. She’ll be opening her very first BiC location and we’re ecstatic that it’ll bring the Florida BiC Center tally to three! Rjitha plans to launch her new location in January 2018.
Congratulations Nirihar and Rajitha!
Tanmoy Kumar & Veronica Reyna have been making their mark in the Cypress market of Houston, TX for nearly two years. They’re currently working on opening their second Texas location! Tanmoy and Veronica started their business with a goal of opening three BiC Centers. In fact, they were the first franchise partners to sign a multi-unit agreement! In addition to taking advantage of multi-unit ownership, Veronica is also benefitting from the Best in Class Teacher Incentive Program. Well done, Veronica and Tanmoy!
Ms. Yilan Liu and Ms. Shan Zhao will be opening their first BiC location in the San Francisco Bay area! Their new Center is slated to open in January 2018. Yilan and Shan have certainly accomplished something incredible in starting a new business, but there’s actually even more to the story. Shan will be the second franchise partner to receive her E-2 Visa by opening a BiC Center! In case you’re unfamiliar, E-2 Visas allow skilled entrepreneurs from other nations to start businesses in the United States. Kudos, Yilan and Shan!
The Secret Behind the Success of Best in Class
Simply put, it’s passion. We know — we realize that you probably hear the buzzword “passion” quite often without an explanation of what it actually entails. That’s why we’re happy and willing to tell you exactly what we mean.
A Passion for Education
Best in Class was the brainchild of an educator who truly just wanted to help others through education. After fleeing war-torn Vietnam, CEO Hao Lam fervently worked his way through high school and college while discovering a knack for teaching others. While running his own tutoring center, he realized his methods were extremely effective. After expanding services to include enrichment and test preparation and reaching 11 successful centers, franchising became the natural path to not only spread a mission of educational excellence, but also help burgeoning entrepreneurs find success in business ownership.
A Passion for Entrepreneurship
We’re very serious about encouraging entrepreneurship. Best in Class is not a set-it-and-forget-it type of franchisor. From assisting in lease negotiations, center setup and training to providing proprietary curricula and software, we provide a wide range of support that’s meant to produce real results for all BiC franchises. Moreover, we have spectacular franchise partners and an immensely talented staff and corporate team who all work to ensure that the Best in Class brand continues to grow and thrive.
We’ve seen great success! After over two decades of helping thousands of kids excel in school, Best in Class is proud to be an award-winning K-12 supplemental education franchise with 50 locations all over the country.
