Founded in 1977 by Eileen and Dr. Ray Huntington, Huntington Learning Center now operates nearly 300 centers nationwide. The company provides comprehensive support and technology to franchise owners and offers in-house financing. Franchise owners in turn deliver K-12 tutoring and test prep that enables students to achieve outstanding academic results. The 61% revenue leadership follows from this. No previous educational experience required to become an owner.

*Data is for all franchise centers open in 2014, except for Kumon, which is for centers open for three or more years. Huntington, Sylvan, and Mathnasium revenues are as reported in Item 19 of their Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDD). We estimated ClubZ! from its FDD-reported financial statement as total franchisor revenue, less purchase of trademarked material and software fees, divided by the average royalty rate, then divided by number of franchise centers. We estimated Kumon revenue using data from its FDD Item 19 and a survey of its centers as average center enrollment multiplied by an average monthly enrollment charge of $120, plus registration fees of $50 and materials fees of $30 for half of its enrollments. We also evaluated Eye Level, Grade Power, and JEI, but could not estimate their revenue.
