This is why Huntington Learning Center is the highest grossing tutoring franchise and why our average 2019 center revenue is 29% higher than that of the competition*.

The total investment to open a new Huntington Learning Center ranges from $148,017 to $263,072. The size of the investment depends on the location, size of the center and a number of other variables. Our experienced real estate team will help you secure the best possible location and negotiate with your landlord for the best possible lease agreement.
