Oradell, New Jersey, September 16, 2009 – After eight consecutive years of record growth across the United States, Huntington Learning Center, a pioneer in the supplemental education industry, announced today that it has opened up the New York City metropolitan market for franchising.
More than 70 franchise locations are now available in central and northern New Jersey, the five boroughs of New York City, Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Rockland, Orange, Dutchess and Putnam Counties in New York, and Fairfield County, Connecticut.
“We founded Huntington right here in Oradell, so the Huntington brand was built in this area,” said Dr. Raymond Huntington, founder of Huntington. “This is by far Huntington’s strongest market. The steady increase in demand for tutoring and the softening of real estate in the New York area make this is an ideal time to offer people the opportunity to invest in franchised centers in a well-established region.”
Huntington Learning Center began franchising its retail-based learning centers in 1985 and has since grown to more than 375 learning centers in 42 states, tutoring tens of thousands students each day. The company opened more than 50 new locations in 2008. In addition to its tutoring services, Huntington also recently announced the launch of a new home-based franchise, Huntington School Services, which will provide supplemental education services to low-achieving students at underperforming schools eligible for Title I funds under No Child Left Behind Act.
“Our New York area learning centers have been met with an overwhelmingly positive response from community parents and educators,” Dr. Huntington said. “There is high demand for our services in this area, and we’re very excited to significantly expand our presence in the New York vicinity.”
