One River School Announces Strategic Franchise Initiative
One River School of Art + Design, pioneering the most successful new art school business concept in America, today announced a strategic franchise initiative which aims to add 100 new locations in major markets across America over the next five years.
The brand is targeting franchise partners with a passion for visual arts and a desire to bring cool cultural programs to their community. The program has been built from the ground up with proprietary tools that drive great educational, operational and financial results.
The One River School franchising program is conceived and piloted by Matt Ross, a proven innovator in the creative education space. As the founding CEO of School of Rock, Ross expanded a fledgling startup with a handful of schools into the largest network of music schools in the world. He is now poised to build the first national network of contemporary art schools in America with a groundbreaking new direction in art education for all ages.
“My mission is to create the next generation of great artists and to flatten the misunderstanding of contemporary art,” says Ross, an avid art collector and supporter of emerging artists worldwide. “We’re serving a variety of needs in our local community and really thriving. Now is the time to spread that success to communities across the country.”
