Oradell-based Huntington Learning Center announced Monday it will begin rapid franchise growth in the New York Metropolitan area – the same region where the company first opened its doors in 1977.
This period of expansion will present more than 40 new franchising opportunities in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, in addition to more than 30 refranchising opportunities for the existing company-owned centers in the area.
Huntington Learning Center is the number one revenue-producing tutoring franchise in the United States, with revenues that are 53 percent higher on average than its closest competitor, according to the company.
Huntington was recognized this year as a Top 500 Franchise and a Top Franchise for Veterans by Entrepreneur, as a Top 50 Franchise by Franchise Business Review’s Franchisee Satisfaction Awards, and as a recipient of the America’s Best Customer Service from Newsweek.
“This is a pivotal moment in Huntington’s history,” Anne Huntington, vice president of business development and member of the board of directors, said in a prepared statement. “We are excited for the opportunity to significantly expand our reach within this market and continue the mission that our co-founders, my parents, began 42 years ago, which is to give every student the best education possible. As the next generation of Huntington leadership, I am proud to carry the legacy they’ve built into the future.”
Huntington franchisees not only have the opportunity to make an impact in their communities, but are provided with comprehensive training and support to launch the business, including step-by-step guidance in terms of operations, marketing, finance management and the knowledge of an experienced and dedicated team. Huntington offers a best-in-class financing option, as well as a reduced franchise fee for active duty and U.S. military veterans.
