Supplemental education franchise Best in Class Education Center is eyeing Illinois for development with a specific focus on Bloomington. Director of Franchise Sales Sharon Peterson said the demographics and growth of the area fit what the brand traditionally looks for when seeking new development.
“Bloomington and McLean County are one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in Illinois and that’s really impacting the school districts,” said Peterson. “We also look at the ranking of schools. Whether they’re very far behind or just facing challenges, we have a strong group of individuals who could help make things easier for the districts.”
