Huntington Learning Centers Franchise
Huntington Learning Centers are a franchise for a business providing children’s educational services. It was founded in 1977 by Dr. Raymond and Eileen Huntington.
Eileen met a number of high school students who could not read. Eileen is a teacher and she felt that she needed to find a way to teach children in a more effective way. Their parents did not agree with them leaving good jobs to start their own business but Ray and Eileen did not just want their jobs; they wanted to help make a difference in the lives of the students. They started this industry over 30 years ago. The couple still runs the company and still lives by their original mission on providing students with the best education possible. They now have 318 locations all over the United States and 33 locations that are company owned.
