Mathnasium to Debut in Romania, Announces Master Franchise Agreement

2024-06-24T05:32:55-04:00June 24th, 2024|Tags: , , |

Leader in Math-Only Education Continues to Grow International Footprint, Now Spanning 11 Countries

LOS ANGELES — Mathnasium Learning Centers, an internationally known franchise with over 1,100 math-tutoring centers worldwide, announces a new signed master franchise agreement with Ms. Dana Bănică that will bring at least 25 learning centers to Romania over the next six years. This marks an important milestone for the brand—breaking into a new country and growing its global footprint.

Dana Bănică‘s Background

  • Master Franchisee, Dana Bănică, is an experienced and successful entrepreneur with a passion for innovative education. In 2018, Banica became Logiscool’s first Master Franchisee by bringing the coding school to Romania.
  • She established in her country a network of more than 60 coding schools to offer children and teenagers high-quality, engaging, and interactive digital literacy education.
  • Building on her success with Logiscool, Bănică knew it was the right time to bring Mathnasium to Romania. Her ultimate goal is to transform the way Romanian children learn and enjoy mathematics, continuing her mission to provide exceptional educational experiences that inspire and empower the next generation.

“I chose to invest in Mathnasium because I wholeheartedly believe in the brand’s mission and methodology,” stated Bănică. “Drawing from my past experience and witnessing the positive impact of engaging educational programs, I recognized Mathnasium’s potential to truly make a difference in Romania. With its proven approach of making math enjoyable and accessible, Mathnasium aligns perfectly with our objectives. Our aim is to instill a love for math in children and nurture the confidence essential for academic success and beyond. Romania is primed for this transformative shift, and I’m thrilled to play a leading role in this educational revolution.”

The current educational landscape in Romania underscores a noticeable absence of dedicated math tutoring centers, a gap that Mathnasium is ideally positioned to address.

Mathnasium’s Global Footprint

  • In the past two years, the brand has announced projections of opening an additional 25 centers in Vietnam, the brand’s largest international market, and 45 centers in Saudi Arabia.
  • With the news of this signed franchise agreement, company leadership projects international development to grow by more than 25% in 2024, compared to the previous year.
  • There continues to be vast growth potential across IndiaPakistanMalaysiaIndonesiathe PhilippinesSpain, and several South American countries.
  • Mathnasium offers a unique, individualized approach to students worldwide, which can effectively address the diverse needs of students, helping them overcome math challenges and reach their full potential.

“Expanding into Romania is an exciting opportunity for us. The country’s cultural emphasis on education, with over 50% of students in primary and secondary grades using tutoring services, shows their commitment to academic excellence that aligns perfectly with our mission,” said Benjamin Simon, Regional Vice President of International at Mathnasium. “Additionally, Romania’s growing middle class and franchise-friendly environment make it an ideal market for rapid expansion through Master Franchising. We are excited to bring our unique approach to math education to Romanian students and contribute to their academic success.”

Temporary Wall Systems Opens its 11th Texas Location with a New Office in Houston

2024-06-20T21:04:20-04:00June 20th, 2024|Tags: , , , , |

Local owners Chris and Tiffany Kiszkiel say they are excited to provide businesses with a safer and cleaner temporary wall solution during times of expansion

HOUSTON — Temporary Wall Systems (TWS), the first and leading full-service, temporary containment wall provider in the United States, is celebrating the grand opening of its new Houston location with a booth at the Houston Build Expo on June 26 and 27 at the NRG Park Center.

Temporary Wall Systems owners Chris and Tiffany Kiszkiel said they are excited to offer Houston businesses with safe and reusable temporary walls that protect their customers, employees and property from renovation and construction activities. The owners will be at Booth 247 at the regional building and construction expo.

Houston is one of the nation’s fastest growing cities, and that means that there is a lot of construction and renovation going on here at all times,” Chris Kiszkiel said. “Many businesses want to stay open while they expand or renovate, but they have to protect their employees and customers from the perils of construction when they do. Our temporary walls go up easily, offer protection during construction, and then come down easily and can be reused once renovations are completed.”

The Kiszkiels are both Houston natives and have spent most of their professional lives working for the freight and transportation industries. Chris Kiszkiel owned and managed trucking companies and also worked in maintenance and logistics, while Tiffany Kiszkiel worked in sales and fleet management.

“Owning our own franchise is a dream come true,” Tiffany Kiszkiel said. “Every day at our Temporary Wall Systems location will be motivating, and we’ll be following our passion and our dream of creating financial independence.”

They also want to create generational wealth they can pass on to their four sons.

Temporary Wall Systems Houston services businesses in Bunker Hill Village, Hedwig VillageHouston, Hunters Creek Village, Midtown, Piney Point Village, The Memorial Villages and West University Place.

TWS is part of HomeFront Brands, a family of emerging, franchised residential and commercial property service brands that offers integrated technology, data support, lead generation, business intelligence systems and training to its partners.
