Hello 806! We are Ravi & Nikki Patel, your local Primrose of Amarillo Southwest owners! Ravi and I have been together since 2008 and married for 9 years! We have a 2-year-old son named Riyan who is absolutely obsessed with school!
I have a bachelor’s degree in business from Wichita State University, although my education and background are in business my passion has always been children and education. My journey in early childhood education started at the age of 15 as an assistant teacher after school and worked my way up to assistant director before graduating college. I decided I wanted to be in the child care business at the age of 18 and I have purposely taken all my steps towards that goal since. When Ravi and I started researching franchises a family friend mentioned Primrose to us and we never looked back. Primrose shares the same values, love for children, culture and importance of a good foundation early on as we do. We truly believe the importance of birth through 5 foundational skills.
Ravi graduated for Texas Tech University with a bachelor’s in finance – real estate then went on to pursue his MBA at UT Dallas with an emphasis in organizational behavior and marketing. Currently, Ravi has taken over the family business of managing and developing hotels. Ravi will continue his career with the family business but will be assisting me at Primrose with accounting and technical support. I will be managing the day to day operations along with a leadership team and support staff. We are so excited to share our dream come true with our hometown!
We look forward to you and your family becoming a part of our Family.
