Bergenfield Daily Voice: Recession-Proof Child Care Industry Positions Lightbridge Academy Franchisee for Success
After immigrating to the U.S. at the age of 17, Kal Patel has found success as a multi-unit owner with Lightbridge Academy.

Kal Patel immigrated to the United States from India at the age of 17. He watched as his father became a successful entrepreneur and was inspired to do the same.

After learning the ropes in the wholesale industry, Patel decided to venture into the recession proof business of childcare. He opened his first Lightbridge Academy four years ago in Clifton, New Jersey.

"I wanted something recession proof," Patel told the Bergenfield Daily Voice. "I knew that if people had money they would put their child in daycare. If they didn't have money, both parents would work and would also have to put their child in daycare."

Patel will open his third Lightbridge Academy in Bergenfield, New Jersey in September.
