– For the 20th time, Entrepreneur Magazine has recognized the Kumon Franchise as a “Best of the Best.” The world’s largest after-school math and reading franchise has been ranked at the top of its industry category in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 Issue for 17 consecutive years.
The Kumon Method was born 60 years ago when Toru Kumon, a high school math teacher in Japan, created learning materials for his son. Today, Kumon has a massive global footprint with more than four million students studying at nearly 25,000 learning centers in 50 countries and regions. Outside of Japan, Kumon North America has the second largest enrollments.
2018 is also a momentous year for Kumon North America as it celebrates its 35th anniversary and largest enrollment numbers ever with over 410,000 subject enrollments at 2,200 centers in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
