Vaughan, ON (April 19, 2012) — Kumon, the world’s largest after-school math and reading enrichment company, earned the No. 1 tutoring ranking by Entrepreneur magazine’s 2012 Franchise 500 issue for the 11th consecutive year. The company exceeded industry expectations, with North American operations growing by 13 percent in the past year and surpassing an enrollment milestone of 336,000 students, with 57,000 of those students studying in Canada.
“It’s a great honour to be recognized as the top tutoring service franchise for the 11th year in a row,” said Lisa Kaul, President of Kumon Canada. “Kumon represents a business opportunity that not only provides our franchisees with a livelihood, but also allows them to make a difference in the lives of Canadian children. With over 300 centres across the country and growing, owning a Kumon Franchise has proven to be a truly rewarding experience for our franchise owners.”
Kumon continues to exceed recruitment records, as more candidates with a strong entrepreneurial spirit and interest in education apply for a Kumon Franchise. Approximately 80 percent of new owners in Canada are initially customers, who experienced the benefits of the program as Kumon parents. Enrollment at franchise centres is also increasing across the country.
