Does anyone know if they're a good business for their franchisees? Someone in my family has been telling me about him getting a franchise and he seems very excited about it, even though I had never even heard about them.
In the United States, at least, Kumon is a fairly small-scale player, with Sylvan Learning Centers dominating the market. That might make its franchises a reasonable deal. While I don't know anything specific about Kumon franchising, the fact that the outlets do not require specialized equipment and fixtures - unlike, say, restaurant franchises - might make the startup costs fairly low.
"Let me think about it" = the coward's way of saying "no"
