How We Help Our Education Franchise Owners Succeed

The Class 101 college planning franchise is a low-investment franchise with potential for a high return on your investment. There are not many franchise opportunities you can purchase for less than $45,000 that can perform as well as a Class 101 franchise. The earnings potential for franchisees is in the $100,000 range after just the first year.

Our initial franchise fee starts at $39,900, far less than most other education franchise opportunities. When you make the decision to become a Class 101 franchisee, you’ll begin a journey that will make a significant, positive impact on the lives of many young adults in your community. Ours is a relationship-based business, and we get to know families and high school staff members in our communities.

We focus on helping our franchisees use our system to grow prosperous, successful, locally owned businesses. Class 101’s expansion is largely based on word-of-mouth, and your client base will ramp up rapidly based on referrals. Our closing rate is an impressive 90%. Once families realize what an investment our services are, they are sold. We’ll walk you through developing a network with key staff at high schools in your territory, as well as ideas for marketing your business through local business and networking organizations.

“There is a guideline for everything that we do. I have a manual that tells me what I need to be talking about to a senior in the month of December, for example,” says Nashville franchisee Karen Feamster. “I’ve heard many people call a franchise a ‘business in a box.’ It’s more than a business in a box. You get people in the box. If you don’t know how to do something, the support is there to help you find the answers.”

What Comes With The Franchise Fee

Once given the green light to launch their office, Class 101 education franchisees receive everything they need to get their business up and running successfully. They receive rights to their territory, which is based on a population of about 250,000, served by six to eight high schools. They receive access to a wealth of proprietary Class 101 documents and support materials, including:

  • Marketing materials such as brochures, business cards, graphics, social media calendars and more
  • Curriculum (which we update continually to meet ongoing college application requirements)
  • Detailed operations manual and high school manual
  • Access to all curriculum and other materials developed over nearly two decades, such as meeting checklists, archived franchise meeting agendas, student financial aid information, and sample sales presentations
  • Access to informative training videos
