Class 101 College Planning Franchise Debuts on Franchise Gator’s Top 100 Opportunity List

Leading Industry Directory Recognizes Our College Planning Franchise as a Best Bet for Investment

Class 101 college planning franchise’s growth has been recognized by Franchise Gator, one of the largest online directories of franchise and business opportunities, by earning a No. 60 spot on its annual Top 100 List. 2017 is shaping up to be another banner year of growth as we work toward a goal of nearly 40 locations by year’s end.

Class 101’s inclusion on Franchise Gators annual list comes hot on the heels of a record year of growth. We closed out 2016 with a new location opening in Philadelphia, bringing the total new locations for the year to six.

“We’re very honored to have been named a top franchise opportunity by Franchise Gator,” says Tom Pabin, founder of Class 101. “Our low initial investment makes us a potentially lucrative business opportunity that also happens to be a very fulfilling business to own.”

Franchise Gator compiles its annual list — a go-to resource for franchise opportunities — after analyzing hundreds of Franchise Disclosure Documents and conducting interviews with executive teams to help entrepreneurs determine which franchise systems are worthy of investment.

Class 101 is a national college planning franchise that helps high school students get into better colleges and qualify for higher amounts of scholarships and financial aid. We provide a solution to a common problem facing U.S. families — the college application process is complicated, competitive and stressful, resulting in students who don’t get enough, or any, financial aid and who often end up at the wrong school. Our franchise is the perfect fit for business minded individuals with a desire to help make a positive impact on the lives of young people.

As word spreads about our success rate, more and more families are signing up for our services, fueling our rapid growth. We offer a much needed service for time-crunched families and a low-investment, potentially lucrative business investment for entrepreneurs with a heart for helping young people.

We Offer a Low-Cost Investment Business Opportunity

The Class 101 business model is effective and easy to launch. Our robust training and home office support team guide franchisees every step of the way. Our full suite of services, including ACT and SAT test prep workshops and DiSC behavior analyses, keeps your business pipeline full year-round, even when school is out. You can launch your business venture solo and choose to add employees as you grow, or you can remain a single owner. Whatever flexible business model you choose, they all feature the same affordable franchise fee of $27,500.

“Our business model is extremely effective as we help students find the perfect school at a tremendous savings. We are able to save families an average of $160,000 in merit-based scholarships alone,” Tom says. “2017 marks our 20th anniversary and we are excited about the growth potential for our growing franchise as more families in more communities benefit from our services.”

With a total initial investment of $40,400, our premier college planning services franchise offers a low-cost investment opportunity with a high potential return. Several of our franchisees have surpassed the $100,000 revenue mark in their first or second year. We have prime locations available nationwide.
