The French American Academy Is Awarded
"Best International Development of a Franchise" of 2022
We are proud to announce that The French American Academy was awarded the trophy for the “Best International Development of a Franchise” for 2022 by the Federation of European Franchise and Partnership Networks (IREF).
With two school franchises currently in development on the Southern US and on the West Coast respectively, the award recognizes the hard work and the accomplishments of the whole team at The French American Academy.
“This award is not only a recognition of our efforts in opening bilingual schools across the US, but it is also a testament to the potential we see, and now that others are seeing, in American families’ pursuit of high-quality education,” says Jean-François Gueguen, co-founder of the French American Academy.
Jean-François Gueguen made the trip to Paris, France to receive the award in the recording studio of BFMTV from the hands of Michel Kahn, President of the IREF and Emmanuel Lechypre, economist and journalist at BFMTV.
The IREF, known for its yearly “Best Franchisees and Partners in France” competition, was founded in 1987 to promote all forms of independent and associated organized trade (franchise, partnership, concession, brand license, commission-affiliation, etc.).
The French American Academy is a group of private independent bilingual schools in North America with the mission to expand access to high-quality bilingual education to as many families and students as possible. “Bringing the bilingual advantage to as many students as possible not only makes good business sense, it also makes the world a better place” adds the co-founder.
With this new award under its belt, the French American Academy team is optimistic about what 2023 has in store!
