With the International Franchise Exposition (IFE) at New York City's Jacob Javits Center, FOX & Friends focused its weekly hiring segment on jobs being created in the booming franchise industry. Lightbridge Academy's Gigi Schweikert appeared on the show as part of a panel of franchisors who are helping to create a stronger job market through rapid franchise expansion.
"Lightbridge Academy is the solution for working parents. We take care of children six weeks to six years, making sure they have educational care and that parents feel comfortable while they're at work," said Schweikert. "We've got ParentView so that parents can monitor their children on any device. We've got e-communication tools so that parents can get information in real time about what's happening with their children."
Schweikert directed job seekers to the Lightbridge Academy website and added, "We're so excited about being here with the job fair because by the year 2018, we will have created almost 2,000 jobs in the tri-state area -- and predominantly women so it's really great!"
