Our Franchisees Love to Make a Difference

At LearningRx, we know that the most important requirement for our franchisees is that they love to make a difference in the lives of their communities. Hear from some of our current franchisees about what LearningRx has meant for them, not only in business, but in their families, as well.

Rich Frieder, LearningRx Eagan, Savage, and Woodbury, MN

Prior Career: Chief Marketing Officer, Deluxe Corporation

“I have been a LearningRx franchisee for almost 3 years now and have just opened my third center in the Twin Cities area. I am so thrilled to be in this position! The impetus for my wife and me opening our initial center in Savage, MN was the desire to change our lifestyle and the struggles our youngest daughter was having with ADHD and language delays.

“I had been in the corporate world for 20 years in various sales and marketing roles. I wanted to focus my career on something more meaningful. When my wife and I came across LearningRx, we were really excited, but also skeptical — the program sounded so transformational. Well, we can say now after almost 400 graduates in our centers over the past 3 years that this program is truly transformational. The opportunity to change lives and families through LearningRx has been a real gift and honor to be a part of. We have also been thrilled with the success we have been blessed with. And my youngest daughter, who hated reading, now reads herself to sleep most nights and begs us to let her keep reading with a flashlight once the lights are turned off!

“Being a LearningRx franchisee has not only brought positive change to the hundreds of families we have worked with, but also to my own. I am so grateful for LearningRx!”

“Once I realized that LearningRx’s formula and approach was the answer to help with my son’s learning differences, I knew I needed to open up my own center. My wife and I prayed about it and asked God to ‘close the door’ if this wasn’t His plan, but He never closed any doors. In fact, once I went to LearningRx’s corporate headquarters and met with Ken Gibson and his wonderful family, I knew this was the right decision for me and my family. The entire process was pretty smooth. Everyone at LearningRx, including the Franchisees, was very helpful and pointed me in all the right directions. It’s been great to work with a company that thrives on helping students and families across the country. I’m proud to be a part of LearningRx.”

“There is no down-side to LearningRx. It has been such a joy to be a part of this group. I just came off of a Program Review and I am excited, and overall I am just so grateful to be able to be a part of this. This year’s Convention was wonderful, and the Playbook, what a great idea! You guys targeted ideas that were so powerful! Please make sure everyone there knows what a great experience this is for us.”
