Kumon ranks No. 1 tutoring franchise for the 10th consecutive year by Entrepreneur Magazine

The Kumon franchise has announced that, for the 10th consecutive year, Entrepreneur magazine’s annual “Franchise 500” issue recognizes Kumon, one of the world’s largest after-school math and reading enrichment companies, as the No.1 franchise in the tutoring industry. Kumon also earned the 14th ranking out of all 500 franchises reviewed. According to the information provided, this franchise ranking is considered the best and most comprehensive based on objective and quantifiable measures of success, including financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system.

“Our franchisees are educated professionals with a strong entrepreneurial drive seeking satisfying careers helping children,” said Hideki Kusuzawa, president of Kumon North America. “We attract former teachers, engineers, lawyers and corporate executives looking for a rewarding, flexible and viable business opportunity.”

Kumon offers business incentives up to $27,500 and has the lowest franchise and materials fee in the industry at only $2,000. With more than 50 years of experience working to maximize the potential of children, the Kumon franchise system offers stability and a time-tested model for success.

Kumon is, it says, continuing to expand as more American families seek programs to help their children excel in school, gain confidence and develop a love of learning. Currently, there are 1,369 franchises in the United States and 1,775 in North America; according to Mr. Kusuzawa, the company plans to open 100 more centers around the country in 2011.

Furthermore, for the very first time, the company is also seeing second and third generation family members owning centers. Former Kumon students with successful careers in engineering, law or teaching are deciding to leave their professions to open a Kumon Center. In addition, as franchisees retire, centers are remaining in the community and being transferred to new owners, making Kumon a long-term business investment. (kbp)
