Follett Corporation Company Profile
Not all kids like to read, but (fortunately for Follett) by the time they reach college, they don't have a choice. Follett is the nation's #1 operator of college bookstores, with more than 1,000 campus bookshops across the US and Canada. The company's seven business groups, which reach about 120 countries, also provide textbooks, eBooks, and audiovisual materials to grade school and public libraries, library automation and management software, textbook reconditioning, and other services. Follett supplemented its efollett.com website, which sells college textbooks, by buying smaller online rival Varsity Group in 2008. The Follett family has owned the company for four generations.
