College Nannies & Tutors Opens A Franchise In Wayland

Tuesday, March 08, 2011

College Nannies & Tutors (CNT) bills itself as the nation's largest resource for customized nanny and tutoring services. But size doesn't tell the complete story.

CNT's purpose is to build stronger families. "We have the passion and the means to provide a role model precisely targeted to your family needs," states the company on its website. Offering a complete set of nanny placement, on-call nannies and professional babysitting services can lead to happy children and successful students, it adds.

CNT's business model appealed to Brian Hrybyk. "I chose the franchisor for its business savvy and professional approach to franchising as much as for the opportunity to give parents the peace of mind that their children are cared for by trained, solid role models who want to make a difference," he says. "After researching the area and the organization, I felt that MetroWest communities could benefit from these services." Hrybyk started his own franchise last month in Wayland. It serves the town and surrounding communities.

"Nanny and tutor positions are, by nature, often part-time jobs," says Hrybyk, a Sturbridge native who now resides in Framingham. "The opportunities created by CNT are perfect for college students, who are seen as role models in their communities, and recent graduates with their variable class, work schedules and life experiences, plus it's a boon for client families who, through College Nannies & Tutors professional staffing service, have access to high-caliber candidates who are personally interviewed, screened, reference checked and legally employed." CNT was incorporated in Minnesota in 2001 by its founder Joseph Keeley. In the summer of 2000, when he was a business school student and college entrepreneur, Keeley took a job as a nanny caring for two boys and girl in Edina, Minn. During his time as a "manny," Keeley realized that he was more than a babysitter - he became an active role model for the children. Recognizing a need for these role models and seeing an employee base at colleges, Kelley started CNT.

Based in Wayzata, Minn., the company has since added 54 franchisees serving 76 communities in 26 states. Corporate revenue grew 76 percent from 2007 to 2008, 42 percent from 2008 to 2009 and 66 percent from 2009 to 2010.

Entrepreneur Magazine's 2011 Franchise 500 ranked CNT no. 244.

Before starting his franchise, Hrybyk completed seven weeks of intensive training, encompassing everything from hiring top personnel to counseling families on best uses of the company's services and proprietary processes.

College Nannies & Tutors provides on-call hourly child care, full- and part-time nanny placement services, as well as customized learning programs, homework help and college test prep tutoring services.

"Through its one-on-one role model focused programs, CNT employs nannies you can trust, tutors who will help your students succeed and test prep coaches who will help your student get into the college of his or her choice," says Hrybyk. "It is this commitment to the families, nannies and tutors and the proven CNT system that distinguishes the company today.

"CNT's complete family approach considers your unique needs and takes a detailed approach to recruitment, screening, training, placement and employment. CNT's systematic approach enables the company to consistently provide a high quality service." Hrybyk notes that CNT offers clients variety and flexibility as well as customized scheduling to meet families needs, including both in the home and a planned learning center. It also provides a complete set of customized tutoring and college test prep services. He adds that tutor services utilize either the student's own schoolwork or a CNT-endorsed curricula.

Regarding cost, Hrybyk says, "Due to the customized nature of the services provided, the best way to determine the price is based on a complimentary individualized analysis of services needed on a case-by-case basis." Prior to starting his CNT franchise, Hrybyk worked in the sales and marketing industries and also provided child care services. He recently received an MBA in entrepreneurial studies with a focus on social entrepreneurship from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. His undergraduate degree in business administration came from Western New England College in Springfield.

For the future, Hrybyk plans to open CNT franchises into other areas of Massachusetts. Another franchisee recently opened a CNT office in Wellesley.
