Club Z! Reaches Major Milestone in 2015 - Celebrating 20 Years in Education

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

Club Z! In-Home Tutoring has long been associated with high quality academic and test prep services, offered through a dedicated network of franchisees. It has built a reputation that is synonymous with quality, results, and high levels of customer satisfaction. But this kind of reputation isn't built overnight. In fact, in Club Z!'s case, it's been 20 years in the making.

"We are so proud of what we have accomplished as a company," said Mark Lucas, CEO and founder of Club Z! "Our franchise owners are incredibly hard-working, dedicated, and committed to providing the highest level of tutoring and test prep support to their students. Our success as a franchise system, in large part, is a direct result of this unwavering commitment to quality. We feel very lucky to have them as part of our franchise family."

Having proudly served more than 400,000 students in over 500 markets over the past 20 years, Club Z! knows a little bit about what it takes to thrive in an ever-changing business environment. From ups and downs in the economy, to major changes in educational programming, Club Z! credits the flexibility of its business model as the secret to its success and long term viability.

"We have a tremendous amount of flexibility in our business model," offered Cari Diaz, Club Z!'s Vice President, "and this has helped our franchise system to thrive over the years. We truly have a tutoring program to fit every family's needs and budget. And I think that's helped us stand out as a leader in the marketplace."

Club Z! originally started as a K-12 in-home tutoring provider, predominantly using the student's classroom curriculum; but it has since expanded its services to include on-site, group, and even online tutoring. In addition, it has developed several proprietary test prep and enrichment curriculum products over the years, including its highly sought after SAT and ACT test prep programs, and its popular Learning Built to Last study skills programs for middle and high school students. In fact, as a result of growing demand for test prep services, in 2012 Club Z! launched its sister brand, Z Prep!, to help showcase its test prep programs for everything from SAT and ACT prep to prep for the GRE, GMAT, LSAT, and more. After 20 years in the business, there is, quite literally, no subject Club Z! cannot support.

And the franchise has remained a top-choice for savvy would-be business owners by maintaining a low entry price, low overhead, and an ever-expanding support network for its franchisees, including access to its proprietary curriculum, back office management software, turnkey advertising campaigns and an in-house art department, ongoing training and professional development, and so much more. In fact, Club Z! has consistently been ranked as a top business opportunity by Entrepreneur magazine's annual Franchise 500 publication in categories ranging from top home-based business, to top low-cost business, and also fastest-growing business. When you consider the competition includes franchise models from all indstries, including big restaurant chains like McDonalds and Subway, this is no small accomplishment.

So after working so hard to get here, Club Z! plans to celebrate its 20th birthday in a major way, including a special blog series on its web site, special promotions for clients and prospective franchisees, and even monthly giveaways for the public, available through its social media channels. "We truly believe that this type of success is a direct result of a team effort," adds CEO Mark Lucas, "and since we got here as a team, we plan on celebrating as a team as well. We look forward to our continued success and to at least another 20 years of doing what we love."
