Huntington Learning Center is the #1 revenue-producing tutoring franchise, with an average earning of 46% more revenue than our closest competitor*. Huntington was founded in 1977, began franchising in 1985, and has grown to be one of the most established and well-respected brands in education. Guided by the customer-centric principle that student results yield leading earnings, we have grown to over 300 locations nationwide. These results are enabled by our world-class systems, against the backdrop of an industry that The New York Times called “immune to recession.”

For over 40 years, Huntington Learning Center has been the leader in the tutoring and test prep industry and has established a reputation of providing high-quality, individualized programs for students of all ages and in all subjects.  As a Huntington franchisee, you will inherit our reputation for excellence and be recognized in your community as an industry leader and a premier brand of tutoring services.

Cash Investment:  $60,000 liquid; $110,070– $225,650 initial total investment required.  Huntington also offers in-house financing--it is one of many great reasons why we are the right choice for individuals who are looking to open an industry leading business. While many of our new franchise owners self-fund or use third-party lending sources, some elect to finance through us.
