Our two-stage interview process allows you to meet the people from our state offices who will be supporting you.

Each interview takes approximately 90 minutes. Candidates who successfully complete the interview process will be invited to attend our New Franchisee Training.

If you are buying an existing Kumon Education Centre, negotiation with the outgoing franchisee can begin after successful completion of the interview process.
