SUPERIOR CURRICULUM

Statistics show that pencil and paper are more effective and have higher levels of retention for children’s learning.

We use colorful booklets that engage and challenge as they progress through the material step by step. With the quality curriculum, you’ll know exactly what to do with each student at your center.

TRAINING & ONBOARDING

For long-term success in education or small business, a solid foundation and smooth start are crucial. Just as Gideon builds confidence in children, we do the same for our franchise owners with our initial training andonboarding. Consisting of online modules and manuals, group learning, and hands-on training with the students, our training will cover everything you need to know to run your children’s education franchise and will take place in Dallas, TX. Some of the topics that will be covered during this training include everything from our math and reading curricula to marketing and sales to center operations and accounting. Ongoing support consists of weekly Zoom calls for the first six months and unlimited phone calls and emails along with center visits.

EXCLUSIVE, DEFINED TERRITORY

A 10-minute driving radius as defined by Google Maps around your retail center is your exclusive territory.

Exclusivity also extends to your materials. Our curriculum can’t be found in stores. As a franchisee, you’ll be the only source for these valuable resources in your neighborhood.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

When starting a learning center, the location must be at least a 10-minute driving distance from other existing retail centers.  We will approve locations based on what we believe to be viable options after checking the distances and other information about the area.  Email us to discuss options in your area or give us a call: 1-855-344-3366.

Yes, retail franchisees receive a dynamic 10 minute driving distance radius from their center (or 2 min. for a non-retail franchisee) as shown by Google Maps or another web-based mapping system. We will reserve your general area for 3 months while you train.

When starting a learning center, initial investment starts at $43,500 for a non-retail franchise and $102,000 for a retail franchise.  Review the full list of fees HERE.

If approved for a retail franchise, you should expect to open 6 – 8 months after signing. The length will depend greatly on how long the build-out takes. If approved for a non-retail franchise, you should expect to open 3 – 6 months after signing.

Once approved, you can only start with one learning center. If you have a retail franchise, you may discuss with us your business plan about expanding into a 2nd center. However, you must still be at each center 75% of the open hours, and your business plan will still have to be approved by a Gideon rep.

Curriculum updates and expansion are continuously ongoing.  We are not developing digital options at this time as writing by hand is better overall for learning and aiding in memorization and increased brain activity.  Read more on this here.

We develop an opening plan for marketing as part of your opening kit. Also, we will develop your website page and brochure. We can create any ads – digital or otherwise – as needed. Also, we do a Google Ad Search marketing campaign for all centers.

5 years

You should expect to spend 20-25 hours per week when you first start the learning center and more as you grow. Most hours will be when the center is open which is usually 2 to 3 afternoons per week along with one weekend morning.

Yes, but the franchise agreement requires a named center director who will be actively involved and physically on-site 75% of the class time and has a controlling interest in the company.

No, we do not at this time.
