Jennifer Hrncir (41) opened up her second Rainbow Station location in San Antonio at 3108 Marshall Road. Jennifer’s background in special education in addition to her own pregnancy inspired her to search for a proactive and well-rounded early childhood education system. Jennifer was the first Rainbow Station franchisee in the system and opened up her first location in June of 2003 in San Antonio, Texas (322 East Sonterra Boulevard, San Antonio, TX). Her belief in the education that Rainbow Station provides as well as their commitment to children allowed her to confidently take that leap and open her own unit. All three of her kids went through the program and Jennifer is still running her centers with more than 10 years of experience under her belt.
How did you hear about the brand?
I was pregnant with my son and there was nothing in my area that appealed to me. I learned about Rainbow Station through a family friend of mine who actually found Rainbow Station on the internet. This was before searches were easy to complete. I was interested in the concept and contacted them for further information.
Why did you choose an opportunity with Rainbow Station?
I looked into other early childhood educational centers but they were all very focused on the business and corporate side of the operation. Rainbow Station was focused on the children. They were warm and from nursing care and toddlers to The Village, they had appropriate curriculum for all ages.
Are you involved with any charities or do any community outreach with your business?
We are heavily involved with the Autism Foundation and battered women’s shelters in the area. Those are the two main charities we donate to and do special events with.
What are your expansion or development plans? What is your end goal with Rainbow Station?
This will be our second location and we are also in development plans to open a third on the northwest side of San Antonio.
