Children's art education franchise company KidzArt announced the sale of its first international and sole regional developer in Shanghai.
Drawing on an increase in demand for children's creative educational services in Asia, Jacky Tan has purchased exclusive rights to open a minimum of 10 KidzArt locations in China, starting in Shanghai and continuing throughout other regions of the country. The first location has a targeted opening date of April 2008.
KidzArt CEO Shell Herman said, "We're thrilled to be the first art education franchise in China and appreciate being recognized as the highest quality brand available."
KidzArt is only the third US children's education brand to enter China behind Gymboree and FasTracKids who both now serve thousands of customers throughout that region.
KidzArt Shanghai partner Jacky Tan has a strong background in providing educational programs in Shanghai. In his pursuit of enhancing right-brain thinking and creativity in Chinese children, Tan evaluated all of the leading art education franchises throughout the US before choosing to invest in KidzArt.
