VANCOUVER, June 13, 2014 /CNW/ - Kumon, the world's largest after-school enrichment program, has launched expansion plans to meet Western Canada's growing demand for supplemental education services. Opportunities for potential franchisees to open Kumon Math and Reading Centres are located in prime locations from Manitoba west to British Columbia and north to Yukon.  Kumon is offering attractive business incentives to new franchisees who want to open in the following markets:

"With towns and cities in Western Canada continuing to grow at a rapid pace, we are aiming to provide convenient locations to meet the demands of parents seeking after-school academic programs for their children," said Peter Tu, Kumon's general manager for Canada West. "We offer significant business incentives to assist with start-up costs, and our $2,000 franchise and materials fee along with the training we provide makes Kumon franchise ownership accessible to a wide range of individuals."

The private tutoring service market globally is projected to reach US$196.3 billion by 2020, according to a recent comprehensive report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. The growth of the market and the Kumon franchise as a whole, makes owning a Kumon after-school centre a viable option for entrepreneurs. Average enrollment at Kumon centres in Western Canada has increased by 24% since 2011.  Kumon's current franchise community consists of 331 independently owned and operated Kumon learning centres across Canada.

"We are recruiting candidates with the 'right' mix of qualities," said Catherine Chiang, franchise recruitment manager for Kumon Canada. "They can be teachers, business professionals, parents returning to the workforce, etc.  What is most important is that they share the goal of helping children reach their full academic potential and develop the skills they'll need to succeed in school and life."

Supplemental education continues to be one of the fastest-growing franchise industries. Entrepreneur magazine's annual Top 500 ranking of franchises recently ranked Kumon as the No. 1 franchise for the 13th consecutive year. The ranking is considered the best and most comprehensive ranking based on objective, quantifiable measures of franchise success. Kumon has also been ranked No. 3 by Forbes in the "Top Franchises For the Money."
