Spitler was selected from over 27,000 franchisees, representing more than 300 brands that participated in Franchise Business Review’s research in the past 18 months.
The Rock Stars recognized were nominated by their franchise brand leadership as franchisees who set admirable examples when it comes to leadership, business acumen, financial and professional success, and contributing to their community.
“There are so many deserving franchise owners out there who are achieving their dreams of business ownership through franchising,” said Michelle Rowan, president & COO of Franchise Business Review. “It was incredibly difficult to narrow down the list, but in the end, we chose individuals who exemplify the qualities that make the franchising model work: a strong work ethic, leadership, and a real commitment to their business and community. Each one of them is truly a franchise Rock Star.”
“Kurt has been an outstanding franchisee since 2012 and with his extensive background in marketing, sales and customer service, traveling all over the world, Kurt understands how to follow the Huntington system while making the families attending his center feel that they are unique.” Stated Anne Huntington, VP of Business Development at Huntington Learning Center.
As a franchisee, Spitler’s mindset has always been to put the kids and community first. “My goal has been to actively be engaged in the community and to continue to provide every child the best education possible.” Spitler mentioned.
He also added, “When the kids in a community get a well-rounded education and we identify academic gaps, we can increase their confidence and proficiency levels, which in-turn can strengthen the community.”
Eileen Huntington, CEO further added, “Kurt has been a tremendous asset to our system by getting involved, adopting new initiatives, offering constructive feedback through his membership in the Franchise Advisory Council and validating for prospective franchisees. As an owner, he offers quality instruction to their students and always enroll with integrity which yields outstanding student results. Kurt is definitely a Rock Star in the Huntington organization!”
