December 14, 2022

BALTIMORECelebree School, a leader in early childhood education that provides infant and toddler care, preschool, before and aftercare, and summer camp programs, announces the appointment of David Floyd as VP of Franchise Development. After a substantial quarter with development agreements in Virginia and Pennsylvania, this crucial hire comes at an opportune time for the brand as it aims to capitalize on this growth momentum. In this role, Floyd will be responsible for bringing on franchisees who are aligned with Celebree’s vision and values, as well as managing the overall franchise sales process.

Floyd brings more than a decade of franchise experience to Celebree, and is a multi-brand franchisee himself. He started his career in business as a financial analyst for 13 years before becoming a franchise development manager in various roles. Most recently, Floyd was the Development Director for FranDevCo where he was responsible for managing the growth of a portfolio of emerging franchise brands across multiple industries. During his introduction of Celebree School, Floyd was impressed with the company’s track record, being an emerging brand with more than 25 years of experience.

“Franchising has changed my life for the better, so one of the reasons I’m excited to take on this role is because I will be able to leverage my own experience as a franchisee to help guide others as they explore franchising for themselves,” shared Floyd. “I look forward to helping expand Celebree’s footprint nationwide through innovative strategies and fulfilling our mission to Grow People Big and Small™.”

Currently Celebree School has more than 80 franchise licenses in various stages of development, with territories available across the country. Celebree’s overall expansion goal is to open 150 new schools over the next three years.

“We’ve grown a lot this past year and my plan is to stay on this trajectory so we can reach our development goal,” said Richard Huffman, Founder and CEO of Celebree School. “With his franchise background and being a franchisee himself, David will be a great addition to our team as we step into this next era of growth.”

As franchise development continues to surge, Celebree School is looking for qualified and engaged individuals seeking single and multi-unit opportunities who are involved in their community, have a passion for childhood education, and are eager to explore the world of franchising.
