** Newly established location; outstanding opportunity with proven success metrics for an owner/ operator **
This franchisee education center is owned by a seller with multiple locations. The seller has one less family member now involved in their company’s management. The center is in an excellent location near prime household consumers, who are likely to invest in their children’s education. The facility is in excellent condition. The location, which is relatively new, has all the elements in place to deliver future profits for a buyer, who elects to become a hands-on owner.
The need for supplemental education and the desire of parents to prioritize their kids’ education will expand. This franchise system will likely continue to grow domestically along with this increased demand, enabling current and new franchisees to own and operate a business that is both financially and personally rewarding.
The asking price is $149,900, which is the middle of the price range for a new franchisee location ($98,300-$198,200). This center is up and running and expected to generate Year 1 revenues of approximately $267,000. Experienced owners have made all the site selection, buildout and other upfront investments to be successful.
The assumable franchise agreement has a 1.5% royalty discount vs. the new franchise agreement. This represents approximately a $4,000 savings per year at the mid-point of the projected year 1 sales volume; $40,000 over ten years.

The tutoring industry shows no signs of slowing down. As the sheer number of students continues to grow, so too does the number of concerned parents seeking tutoring for their children. According to the U.S. Department of Education, the U.S. had a total of 55.9 million students in public and private elementary and secondary schools as of 2010, and the total number of students is projected to set new records every year through 2018. Students can benefit greatly from individualized support outside the classroom. In fact, a number of studies show that the achievement gap widens as students approach high school. According to research conducted by GSV Asset Management, American fourth-grade students scored above the international average in math, but dropped below it by eighth grade and only outscored two other countries by 12th grade. College-bound students also show signs of struggle. Of the 1.66 million students from the 2012 graduating class who took the ACT, 60 percent of test takers met no more than two of the four ACT College Readiness Benchmarks-and 28 percent met no benchmarks at all. This franchise concept is a leader in their industry.
Owners no longer have a family member to actively manage this center.
The seller offers a minimum of 2 weeks of training to assure a smooth transition. With the business being a franchise, many questions may be directed to the franchisor and support staff.
