After-School STEM Enrichment Franchise Debuts Campuses in New York
and Massachusetts, Adds Second Connecticut Location
SALT LAKE CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Zaniac,
a national STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) franchise
where learning feels like play with programs such as Zaniac Robotics:
LEGO®, Game-Based Learning: Minecraft™, 3D Printing and Computer
Programming, will continue to significantly expand its footprint in the
Northeast with an October opening in Massachusetts. This follows the
brand’s debut in New York City last week, and a second Connecticut
location that opened last month.
“There is a demand across the country for greater STEM education
opportunities and we are working to fill that void,” said Sidharth
Oberoi, Zaniac’s President and Chief Academic Officer. “Zaniac Campuses
are a fun and rewarding way to provide cutting-edge educational
enrichment opportunities for children.”
In Boston, local entrepreneurs and franchisees Katie Comtois and
Stephanie Murray will open a Zaniac campus at 358 Cambridge Road in
Woburn, Massachusetts, slated for October. The two bring significant
experience in education and psychology and hope to open an additional
nine Zaniac locations throughout the next five years in the greater
“The Boston market is passionate about education, technology and
promoting STEM curricula – it’s a no brainer,” said Comtois. “Zaniac
complements the traditional education system by encouraging kids to
leverage their natural strengths and explore being problem solvers,
creative thinkers and approach learning with an open mind. I see Zaniac
becoming a household name in the immediate future.”
Zaniac first entered the Northeast in December 2013, when franchisees
Camilla Gazal and Flavia Naslausky opened a campus in Greenwich,
Connecticut. The two pioneered the Zaniac franchise program and plan to
continue expanding through a franchise deal set to bring nine new
locations to the region. A new campus opened August 19 in Westport, CT
at 1391 Post Road East and Zaniac debuted in Manhattan at 3rd
Avenue & East 78th Street September 1.
“Witnessing first-hand the overwhelmingly positive impact Zaniac had on
our own children confirmed our decision to bring the opportunity to
other children throughout the Northeast,” Gazal added.
Zaniac currently has corporate campuses open in Salt Lake City and Park
City, Utah, in addition to additional franchises in Miami, Florida, and
Greenwich, Connecticut. The fast-growing franchise plans to reach 50
campuses by 2017.
Zaniac campuses are bright and colorful, featuring glass-walled
classrooms with white boards and large multimedia screens. The company
provides a host of STEM learning programs that get kids excited about
math and science while preparing them for 21st Century jobs, including
