The private tutor franchisor plans to open 775 units globally by the end of the year.
Tutor Doctor, the one-on-one private tutor franchisor has had a strong start to 2021, managing to sign almost 50 agreements and laying plans for 45 openings.
Capitalizing on the demand for virtual education during the pandemic, Tutor Doctor reported a 90 per cent increase in system-wide sales, quarter over year. As a result, the brand plans to open 775 units globally, with single and multi-unit owners.
Some of Tutor Doctor’s growth has been fuelled by Innovation Squads, a cross-functional team that works with franchisees to develop product offerings, increase lead generation, enhance sales training practices and provides home office team members with tools to increase performance and acquire new skills.
“Last year presented the world its challenges, but our team’s resiliency and ability to innovate and adapt has allowed us to remain steadfast and focus on growth and performance,” said Frank Milner, president of Tutor Doctor.
“This year, we’ve been able to grow from a development and sales standpoint by prioritizing a people-focused approach to business.
“By doing so, we have been able to reach more students and more communities with quality, in-home and online tutoring services that are current with educational standards. This people-focused mentality will continue to guide our future strategy as we grow our global footprint.”
Tutor Doctor’s experience in the franchisor education market led it to acquiring CodeWiz, an education platform for young children to learn to code.
In the past year, Tutor Doctor has partnered up with 58 franchisees and awarded 80 units, taking the brand’s footprint to 700 locations across 16 countries, with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) being the most recent.
