Birmingham Business Journal: Sylvan Learning Targets Birmingham for Expansion

Sylvan Learning’s Franchise Development Manager discusses the brand’s expansion into Alabama.

Courtney Wells, franchise development manager with Sylvan Learning, spoke to the Birmingham Business Journal regarding the 750+ point of presence supplemental and enrichment education company’s targeting of Alabama for 15 new locations across the state. Sylvan Learning is specifically eyeing Central Birmingham, Bessemer and Gardendale as areas within the metro to develop. Outside of the metro, the company is targeting Auburn, Huntsville, Decatur, Florence and Albertville as key areas for growth.

"Birmingham is an area with a great need for additional supplemental education offerings, as there aren’t many well-known tutoring services easily accessible to K-12 students," Wells said. "In addition, STEM and college prep courses can be delivered to Sylvan students and with such a wide range of product offerings, we can truly offer the level of support Birmingham is needing to keep young learners engaged and increase testing scores across the state."

Wells also described that while more of the tutoring is being done virtually at this time, the brand is planning brick-and-mortar locations in Birmingham.
