June 21, 2016 // Franchising.com // Teaneck, N.J. – Kumon, the world’s largest after-school math and reading franchisor, has plans to expand in the Bronx, Queens, Staten Island, and Long Island. Kumon is at the forefront of the supplemental education industry and is looking for prospective small business owners with a strong entrepreneurial spirit and passion for helping children reach their full academic potential.
A recent study by the National Assessment of Education Progress shows a decline in the percentage of students who are considered prepared for college-level work in reading and math. More parents are turning to learning centers, making the supplemental education industry one of the fastest-growing franchise industries. A leading market research firm has forecasted that the global market for private tutoring will reach $196.3 billion by 2020.
“The demand for Kumon learning centers continues to be seen throughout the country and we are excited to bring expansion plans to a number of available territories in New York,” said Larry Lambert, vice president of franchise recruitment at Kumon North America. “We offer a number of financial incentives, up to $19,000 related to start-up costs and have the lowest franchise fee in the industry.”
