About Us

Kumon is the world’s largest private supplementary education programme and with over 200 franchisees in South Africa we are firmly cementing our footprint as South Africa’s largest. Kumon has been franchised in South Africa since 1992 and we are currently recruiting for new franchisees in Gauteng, the Western Cape and KZN. If you want to be directly responsible for changing children’s lives while having the back-up of an internationally recognized franchisor and programme then contact us to find out more about Kumon Franchising.

About the Franchise


Kumon Franchises are owner operated and we require our franchisees to be committed to Kumon full time after opening. The venue must be dedicated to the study of Kumon Maths and English only and be open for Kumon study a minimum of 4 afternoons per week.

The application process to become a Kumon Franchisee can take up to six months, and the process comprises of, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Interview with Kumon Franchise Recruitment
  • Centre Visits to existing Kumon Centres (arranged by Kumon)
  • Full Financial and Business Plan
  • Initial training (3 days per month over a three month period)

Kumon will assist with site selection, branding, centre fit out and marketing during the application and training period. All branding, venues, furniture etc. must comply with Kumon requirements which will be discussed with you in detail.

The average start-up investment for a Kumon franchise is R60, 000.00 which is inclusive of the Kumon Licence Fee.  A full financial plan and business plan will be discussed with you during the recruitment process.

Kumon have conducted thorough research into all areas that we feel are viable for the placement of a Kumon Centre and have published a list of placement areas for 2014 on our website.  From time to time existing centres do come up for sale and these will be listed on our website as they arise.
