Child Identification Franchise Recognized

Guard-A-Kid named to Top 100 New Franchises List

Leola, PA – Up-and-coming franchise company Guard-A-Kid – known for its innovative child identification services – has been “discovered” by franchise industry veterans and recognized as one of the “Top 100 New Franchises” by Franchise Market, a national trade magazine that partners with the SBA, SCORE and Small Business Development Centers throughout the country.

The chain had caught the eye of Sean Kelly, a franchise industry veteran engaged by Franchise Market magazine to nominate new, high-potential companies that had recently begun offering franchises. Kelly’s PA-based company IdeaFarm publishes a new-franchise scouting report called FranBest.Com.

According to Kelly, the upstart franchise chain provides a unique opportunity to individuals looking to join a dynamic new franchise program. Guard-A-Kid franchise owners offers a complete child ID and child safety package to parents. As a home-based franchise, franchisees offer this program in schools and daycares in their exclusive territory. With the retail option, during a quick stop at a Guard-A-Kid Kiosk, parents can receive a printed and a digital I.D package for their child. While others offer a single printed ID card, Guard-A-Kidâ„¢ provides the parents with two wallet-size printed IDs, a large file-size ID, and most importantly a CDROM that contains all of the child’s information in a digital format ready to be sent to law enforcement.

According to Guard-A-Kid Franchising Corp.founder and CEO Hossein Kasmai, flexibility of locations and a low initial investment has contributed to its appeal. With close to 60 franchises sold in less than 18 months, Guard-A-Kid is one of the fastest growing franchise systems in the industry.
