Cheri Reid of Skokie, Illinois has been awarded by The International Franchise Association, as a 2023 Franchisee of the Year.

The International Franchise Association (IFA) named Cheri Reid, owner of Huntington Learning Center in Skokie, Illinois, as a 2023 Franchisee of the Year. Reid was honored at the 63rd IFA Annual Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada, for being an outstanding franchise establishment owner-operator.

Cheri Reid is an invaluable member of Huntington Learning Center and a standout franchisee who is poised to continue to excel within the Huntington organization as one of our most dedicated and successful leaders. 

When Cheri enrolled her five and six-year-old children at a local Huntington center she was so proud of the academic success her family experienced; and as a result she invested in a franchise herself. Now, after 20 years of being a Huntington franchisee, she continues to start her staff meeting with ‘good news,’ sharing how they are continuing to help students achieve their dreams. 

“Franchisee of the Year recipients represent the best in franchising,” said Matthew Haller, president and CEO of the International Franchise Association. “This is the highest honor IFA awards to individual franchisees, and local business owners like Cheri exemplify the power of franchising and its positive contributions to communities around the world.”

The Franchisee of the Year Award, sponsored by IFA’s partner Paychex, recognizes leading franchise owners from IFA member brands whose outstanding performance and contributions help protect, enhance, and promote the franchise business model. Nominated by their parent company, individuals are selected for their service to their communities, fostering a strong and vibrant workforce, opening the doors for career growth and entrepreneurship, and supporting their fellow franchisees.
