Owner and Franchisee
Chris Rodgers graduated with a degree in business from the University of Florida and has been living in Atlanta since 2009. He is an entrepreneur with a passion for launching and developing businesses. Before opening Georgia’s first Building Kidz, Chris spent six years traveling and growing an environmental services company in North Dakota and Montana with his father and brothers.
Desiring to spend more time at home and put roots down in Roswell, Chris decided to start a business locally. The opportunity to invest in a Building Kidz School came in 2017, and the dream of opening a family business of his own became a reality.
Chris enjoys smoking meats on his Traeger Grill, taking ridiculous Christmas card pictures with his wife, Jamie, and chasing squirrels with his dog, Mac. Since November of 2019, when Chris and Jamie were blessed with the newest member of their family, Madison Rodgers, they have been focusing their free time on the joys of parenthood.
