Q: What does the program cost?
Q: Is there a payment plan and if so, what are the payments?
A: YES! To start, you will put down a $500 deposit. Then we'll contact you to set up a customized plan with monthly or weekly payments that fit your budget! The course must be paid in full by the last class date: November 15th.
(Meaning the sooner you sign up, the lower your monthly or weekly payments will be!)
Q: What’s the average income I can expect?
A: Income can vary depending on the season (fall, summer, spring) and how many hours/classes you want to teach per week. But on average, you could expect to earn about $12,500 teaching just 5 hours per week over the course of 4 months. If you add more classes or expand your team, you can significantly increase your earnings.
Q: What is the difference between a franchisee and an affiliate?
A: Both are similar with one major difference - COST!
First, let's start with how they are the same:
Both allow you to 'become the brand'. You get to use the existing name, logo, marketing, branding, etc.
Both allow you to use the existing customer base and brand awareness.
Both provide training and trade secrets so little to no industry experience is necessary.
Both provide proof of concept so there is lower risk than starting an entirely new business.
Both provide continued support from the business owner.
Both provide opportunities for expanding your business to different locations.
How they are different:
Becoming an affiliate is less than half the cost of starting a franchise, usually much less than half! Here are some comparisons of other after-school program franchise prices
Franchisee's must report all earnings and share a percentage of profits with their franchisor. As an affiliate you never have to report your earnings or share your profit, instead there is a nominal renewal fee yearly potentially saving you thousands each year! Here's a cost comparison example of other after-school franchise options:
