ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Creative Learning Corporation (OTCBB:CLCN) owner and developer of Bricks 4 Kidz®, and Challenge Island®, the highly-popular children’s education and enrichment programs, is pleased to announce its record earnings for the quarter ending December 31, 2013. The Company generated revenues of $1,873,476, more than double that of last years’ first quarter with a pre-tax profit of $474,021 and net income of $296,815 or $.03/share. CEO Brian Pappas attributes Creative Learning’s stellar quarterly performance to a substantial increase in interest from franchise seekers as a result of increased marketing expenditures, recognition from Entrepreneur Magazine as the #1 Children’s Enrichment Franchise in the country, strong performance of the Company’s franchisees, increasing demand for Bricks 4 Kidz®, internationally (now in 22 countries), and increasing franchise sales from Challenge Island®. Pappas stated, “You don’t sell franchises in any franchise system unless the franchisees are doing well. We focus tremendous energy on our franchisees through our support system and are constantly seeking ways to assist them in their local businesses. Our second quarter is shaping up to be strong also with record breaking revenue in January and the same projected for February.”
