No, possessing an educational background is not a mandatory requirement for becoming a franchisee. While experience in the education field or as a teacher can be advantageous, it is not an essential prerequisite. Having prior customer service experience or any relevant experiences in education can be beneficial, but these are not strict prerequisites either.
We proudly welcome individuals with diverse backgrounds to join our community of successful franchisees. What truly matters to us is your dedication, passion, and drive to achieve success.
In 2020, a report from Global Industry Analysts said the tutoring industry is really, really big. People all over the world spend more than $200 Billion on it every year. And guess what? It’s going to get even bigger, like maybe more than $270 Billion by 2025. In Canada, tutoring is worth over $3 Billion every year.
To make it simpler, tutoring is a super huge business, and it’s getting even bigger. Every year, the money spent on tutoring goes up by about 7%. This happens everywhere, including Canada. So, it’s not just big, it’s growing really fast!

We also have education consultation services, selling books, and even high school credits. With the Inspiration franchise, you have a chance to do lots of things and make lots of money.

Our business is generally open during the following hours:
Monday to Friday: 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Saturday: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Please note that these hours may vary slightly based on specific locations and occasions. We strive to provide flexibility while adhering to these standard operating hours.
Absolutely! In response to the COVID-19 closures, we smoothly incorporated online tutoring into our service offerings. This empowers students with the flexibility to opt for either online or in-person sessions, accommodating a wide range of preferences and requirements. This adaptability is especially advantageous for families in situations where parental drop-offs are not feasible. Additionally, by presenting this choice, we uphold the vital regularity in our students’ participation in tutoring sessions.
To further enhance the franchisee experience and minimize costs, as the franchisor, we actively support our franchisees in identifying the most suitable application. This app, sourced from a reputable and established company, not only ensures stability but also contributes to overall cost-efficiency for our franchisees.
A: To achieve the best outcomes, we recommend that new franchisees, along with their selected manager if there is one from the start, complete in-house training and personally supervise the location for a duration of three to six months. While this immersive approach is advisable during the initial opening phase, a successful transition away from direct involvement is also feasible.
For investor-owners who prefer a more hands-off approach from the very beginning, we offer a customized operating model tailored to suit this strategy. This enables you to hire a center manager right from the start, ensuring a streamlined operation while still leveraging the guidance and resources provided by our Head Office team.
A typical day as a franchisee may encompass a range of engaging activities. You might start by attending to new inquiry phone calls and responding to web inquiries. This could lead to carrying out the enrollment process for new students, including administering benchmark assessments to gauge their starting point.
Your day might also involve conducting meaningful parent/guardian conferences, where you provide formal updates on the progress of the students in your program. Additionally, you’ll have the opportunity to schedule and coordinate your team of staff members, ensuring a smooth operation.
Collaboration with local school teachers may be a part of your routine as well. This could involve liaising with educators to align your program with school curricula and support the educational journey of the enrolled children.
And of course, amidst all these responsibilities, you’ll find enjoyment in working closely with your team of dedicated teachers, students, and parents. It’s a dynamic and rewarding role that allows you to make a positive impact within your community.
Generally, the process takes between three to six months, taking into consideration a range of factors. These factors encompass locating a suitable site, progressing through the stages of our internal franchise process, and fulfilling legal due diligence requirements. The specific duration may vary based on these considerations and other relevant variables.
At Inspiration Franchise, your success is paramount, and we are committed to providing unwavering support throughout your journey. Our comprehensive approach begins with an immersive 4-day training, conducted by our seasoned senior HQ staff either in person or online. This foundational training encompasses essential aspects such as operations, marketing, sales, income pillars, and general business practices.
Following this intensive training phase, our dedicated guidance extends for an additional 2 days at your new location. This critical period involves hands-on assistance with pivotal tasks like new-student intake, enrollment procedures, parent conferences, and overall organizational dynamics. Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to gain insights into the operations of other centers through an additional 2-day training session.
Our thorough training equips you with the essential tools to excel as a successful franchise owner. As you settle into your role, our ongoing training strategy comes into play. We maintain consistent communication through various channels, including daily phone calls with our Head Office team, weekly and bi-weekly phone conversations, as well as monthly in-person visits. These interactions ensure you remain closely connected to valuable resources and guidance.
As your proficiency in location operations and management advances, our support naturally transitions to an as-needed basis. Be assured that our unwavering commitment is to provide the continuous assistance necessary for your lasting success as an esteemed Inspiration Franchise owner.
Starting from 2024, in addition to our existing support, we are excited to introduce a new initiative. Each new franchisee will receive $10,000 to support their grand opening marketing expenses. In summary, we offer a comprehensive program encompassing 4 days of theory-based learning, followed by 2 days of on-location training at your franchise, and an additional 2 days observing operations at other centers. Moreover, we provide a $10,000 contribution toward your grand opening marketing efforts, solidifying our dedication to your achievement.
If your available capital doesn’t align with your investment needs, rest assured, there are various avenues to explore for securing financing. These options encompass:
Home Equity Loan: If you have a long-standing homeownership history, a “Home Equity Loan” can be a viable solution to unlock the required funds.
Small Business Loan: We’re here to guide you through the intricacies of obtaining a Small Business Loan. Our expertise extends to introducing you to trusted third-party financial institutions that we maintain relationships with.
Family and Friends: Your network of family and friends might be enthusiastic about supporting your success by investing in your venture.
Partnership Opportunity: Collaborating with a friend or colleague who possesses complementary skills can be a strategic approach to secure the financing needed.
It’s important to note that Academy franchisees have successfully utilized each of these avenues over the years to secure the necessary funds for launching their academies. We are committed to assisting you in navigating the financing landscape and helping you make informed decisions on the path to establishing a thriving Academy.
For continued partnership excellence, royalty payments and Marketing Fund contributions are processed monthly based on gross revenues. The royalty fee stands at 10%, and the Marketing Fund contribution is 2%. A pivotal edge of the Inspiration franchise system is its transparency – no hidden fees. This sets us apart from other tutoring systems that impose additional charges beyond the royalty fee.
The cost varies and is influenced by factors like rent and premises layout. Detailed startup expenses are outlined in our Franchise Disclosure Document, which you’ll receive upon preliminary approval of your Request for Consideration form.
A typical Inspiration location ranges between 800 and 1,500 square feet.
Our suggested interior layout comprises a warm lobby entrance and, where feasible, a compact meeting office. The primary focus is on enclosed classrooms designed to facilitate 4:1 or 1:1 learning tables. We emphasize private rooms to elevate the learning experience.
Utilizing sophisticated demographic software, our Head Office team performs a comprehensive analysis of potential locations. Key demographic indicators, such as total population, local child population, and household income, are assessed. We also evaluate proximity to schools and community centers, and conduct a competitive analysis. Collaborating closely with potential franchisees in their respective areas, we prioritize a partnership-driven approach to pinpointing the ideal site. This collaborative method is consistently favored by our Head Office team.
Yes, every franchisee is granted an exclusive protected territory, defined by specific street boundaries. This area is carefully chosen to include a substantial population to sustain your business. This protection guarantees that the franchisor won’t open more locations within your designated zone. We prioritize fairness and avoid oversaturating areas with multiple outlets, setting us apart from other brands. This approach prevents unnecessary competition among franchisees.
Certainly! As a part of our thorough Head Office due-diligence process, we strongly recommend potential franchisees to engage in conversations with multiple existing franchisees. They can provide valuable insights, share their experiences, and offer advice on what your daily operations would entail as a valued member of the Inspiration family.
Exceptional educators form the cornerstone of Inspiration Learning’s unwavering dedication to student success. Our approach involves the recruitment of proficient teachers, accredited within your jurisdiction. These educators then undergo comprehensive training in delivering our tutoring services, mastering the ‘East Meets West’ methodology. As you embark on your journey as a franchisee, our Head Office team will provide comprehensive guidance through the entire staffing process, encompassing job advertisements, resume evaluation, interview coordination, and reference checks. Our all-inclusive staffing solution ensures a seamless implementation. The growth of each new location is propelled by our devoted teaching team, and our steadfast commitment lies in actively aiding new franchisees in the identification, hiring, and training of an exceptional cadre of educators.
On average, you should have around $70K-$130K in available capital to establish your Inspriation Learning center. This places us on the more affordable side of the investment scale compared to numerous other franchise options. It’s important to note that the investment could be lower if you choose a location with cost-effective rent.
In light of the COVID-19 situation, our primary focus has been on supporting the growth of our existing franchisees, rather than rapid expansion. However, we have now resumed our search for new franchisees. Please reach out to us with your desired territory, and we will work together to ensure your success.
