One River School Announces New Franchise Locations in Three States

Art School franchise business to open in Chicago, IL, Long Island, NY and Middletown, NJ

ENGLEWOOD, N.J., Nov. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- One River School is expanding its footprint in the Midwest as part of an existing multi-unit development deal in Greater Chicago and has secured two new multi-unit development deals in the metro New York area. Today the company operates nine locations and anticipates significant growth over the next 24 months.

"This weekend is the grand opening of our second location in Chicago," said Matt Ross, Founder and CEO of One River. "Our Lincoln Square location has seen a record amount of interest and we are so thrilled to celebrate our formal kickoff this weekend. We are also thrilled about opening more schools in the Greater New York area and our partners plan to open their first schools in Monmouth County, NJ and Suffolk County, NY early in the new year."

One River School has developed a unique business model that includes proprietary educational programs and curriculum that allows business people without art education experience the opportunity to invest in a compelling new concept in their community. Art education continues to suffer from budget cutbacks everywhere, but One River is proving that there is a massive interest in personal growth and creative expression across the United States. The company has also built a best in class marketing program that helps local operators build a large student population which supports the economic growth of these schools.

"When I started One River in 2012, I was certain that there was a tremendous need for fun and compelling art programs nationwide," said Founder & CEO Matt Ross. "My goal is to continue to open schools with smart, caring and sophisticated franchise partners who value personal growth and want to build a compelling and culturally important business in their community."

Founded by Matt Ross, the Former CEO of School of Rock in September of 2012, One River School of Art & Design has embarked on a mission to "transform art education" in America. The company has developed a unique method for teaching art and design to people of all ages and they plan to open locations across the US over the next ten years. One River has developed an innovative franchise partner program that has been built to create compelling experiences for students and high financial and emotional rewards for franchisees.
