Franchise Mandoulides


The Mandoulides School Franchise program provides innovative support and expertise that franchisees need in order to create the schools they want.

With more than 40 years of experience in education, Mandoulides Schools will help your franchise succeed in the business world.

Franchising is perfect for entrepreneurial individuals who want to begin a business venture for themselves, not by themselves. You invest in a proven operational model and have the advantage of partnering with a recognized, successful brand that has a system in place to support the full range of your needs, from marketing to IT and more. A team of professionals with many years of experience will guide you in developing your school.

Success with a major brand name

When you start a franchise, you have the name recognition of an existing company. That can go a long way for an entrepreneur instead of starting something new and unknown. When you have immediate name recognition, you have the trust of a large number of customers since they know what to expect based solely on the brand name. You’ll still need to market and help your franchise grow in your area, but having the initial name recognition can be a huge asset for entrepreneurs committed to promoting their companies. Franchisees find themselves making a comfortable living and improving their quality of life. Our franchisees can achieve their personal goals, while benefiting their communities.

Lower Startup Costs

Franchises are cost-effective investments in comparison to a new business created from scratch. In most cases, when you become a franchisee, you’ll have fewer costs up front.  Nevertheless, you will need to consider the franchise fee, investment capital, and liquid capital required.

Easier Financing

You’ll find that franchising makes it easier to secure funding through traditional bank loans. Many banks don’t want to take a chance on new small businesses, but a well-known franchise is a much safer bet for lenders.

One of the main advantages of owning a school is the fact that the principal is engaged in a profession in which they are the employer, without being accountable to someone else. In addition, a school owner has a bright future, with very satisfactory incentives, including a much higher than average salary. With two working parents being the norm in families, the demand for quality childcare is steadily increasing. In addition to being a recession-resistant venture, owning a preschool franchise helping to shape young minds can also be professionally and emotionally fulfilling.

Investing in education can be remarkably profitable, especially with the support of our educational institution, a Greek school whose orientation towards Europe and the entire world makes it unique. Mandoulides Schools provides valuable guidance to make it easier for you to start your new school and lay the foundation for children’s development. Our common goal is students’ learning through vibrant and creative educational practices.
