TORONTO (April 17, 2019) – Mathnasium, North America’s leading math-only supplemental education franchise, has earned the top spot in Franchise Gator’s “Top 100 Franchises of 2019” list. The designation comes amid sweeping growth for Mathnasium, which this year opened its 1,000th learning center worldwide.

“Mathnasium is a testament to what a franchisor can accomplish with strong values and a focus on franchisee profitability,” said Mathnasium CEO Peter Markovitz. “Earning the title of Top Franchise of 2019 wouldn’t be possible if we weren’t exceeding the expectations of every parent and child who walks through the doors of our learning centers.”

“Our growth is possible because of the amazing employees and franchise owners that believed in the founding vision: math is essential, math is fun and math will change your life,” said Mathnasium President David Ullendorff.

Through the Mathnasium Method™, students who attend sessions at a Mathnasium Learning Centre boost their grades and scores, learn critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and gain self-confidence.
