“It was very difficult for me to choose among many brands available in INDIA, I spoke to many franchisors during my research to find the right partner and finally my search ended here at ICON. I still remember the voice I heard during my first telephonic discussion with “Icon Management” that “We will hold your hand” and it is very true. We joined the family of ICON in December 2017 by starting 1st branch in Sector-82 Gurgaon and within 4-5 months I started my 2nd branch of ICON in May 2018 and now planning to launch 3rd in November 2018 . We pride ourselves to be a part of such a big professional playschool group. Their core team is very supportive and provides training from time to time to maintain the standards. We are highly obliged for the support we get from their team on every little thing.”
