Kumon franchise expands in Northeast

The Kumon franchise, one of the world's largest after-school enrichment programs, has identified Boston, Philadelphia and New York City as top priority markets and announced the launch of aggressive expansion plans to meet the growing demand for supplemental education services in these cities. According to the information provided, Kumon student enrollment increased by 39 percent in Boston, 34 percent in New York City and 32 percent in Philadelphia in the past five years. Kumon offers, it says, attractive business incentives to new franchisees in these priority markets.

"We are seeking franchise candidates who have an entrepreneurial drive and the desire to work in the rewarding field of education," said Joseph Nativo, chief financial officer, Kumon North America. "We offer franchisees business incentives up to $27,500 and quality-of-life flexibility. Our $2,000 franchise and materials fee is the lowest in the industry."

Since opening the first U.S. Kumon Center in Larchmont, N.Y., in 1974, Kumon is, it says, a highly desirable career opportunity for entrepreneurs. New openings of Kumon Centers increased by 80 percent this year and Kumon plans to sign an additional 50 franchise agreements by the end of the year, expanding its current 1,334-franchise community.

Kumon is an after-school math and reading enrichment program that unlocks the potential of children so they can achieve more on their own. Founded in Japan in 1958, the learning method uses an individualized approach that helps children develop a solid command of math and reading skills. Through daily practice and mastery of materials, students increase confidence, improve concentration and develop better study skills. Kumon has 26,000 centers in 46 countries and more than 4 million students studying worldwide. (kbp)
