Franchise News Release: Minneapolis, MN - (Nov-1-2005)

Business Week names IFA member Joseph Keeley as one of the nation's top entrepreneurs under 25 in special report

In a just released online special report, Business Week Online named Joseph Keeley, founder of Minneapolis based College Nannies & Tutors and International Franchise Association member, as one of the publication’s top picks for the leading Entrepreneurs under 25 in the country. The Business Week Online special report focuses on the trend and new found acceptance of entrepreneurship as a career path by highlighting 20 successful ventures lead by entrepreneurs ages 25 and younger.

From University beginnings to franchise Expansion

Joseph Keeley caught the “startup bug”, as Business Week states it, when he was a freshman attending the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN. Keeley, a business student and college hockey player at the time, was searching for a rewarding summer job and found it as a nanny for two boys and a little girl in a Minneapolis, MN suburb. Quickly, Keeley noticed that he was much more than a “babysitter”, but rather an “Active Role Model” for the children coordinating enrichment, athletic and educational activities for the children when their parents were at work. The idea for College Nannies & Tutors was born.

In 2003, Keeley attracted the attention of former teacher and well known Minnesota business man Peter Lytle by winning the 2003 Minnesota Collegiate Entrepreneur Award and subsequently going on to be named the 2003 Global Student Entrepreneur of the year. Mr. Lytle, as managing partner of Wayzata, MN based Business Development Group, assisted Keeley with the financing and expansion of the concept into providing child development focused nannies and academic learning centers that provide one on one tutoring for grades Pre-K through 12. The company’s motto: “We foster a child’s happiness and success through academic and developmental growth.” College Nannies & Tutors now has four Minnesota locations including Edina, Shorewood, Wayzata and Woodbury as well as one in Phoenix, AZ. In 2005 the company announced it would begin to expand through franchising.
