LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 14, 2018) — Well-known business publication Entrepreneur has recognized Class 101 college planning franchise as a Top 100 Franchise Opportunity for Less than $50,000.

The Class 101 national college planning franchise helps high school students get into colleges that are right for them and to qualify for higher amounts of scholarships and financial aid. The college application process is complicated and stressful, often resulting in students who get little or no financial aid and end up at the wrong schools.

“This recent recognition from Entrepreneur is just another industry accolade that validates our business model. I’m very proud of our family of franchisees who work hard to help high school students get into the best college at the best price, as well as our home office support staff who work closely with our franchise owners to make sure they have all the tools available to them to grow their business,” said Tom Pabin, founder and CEO of Class 101. “We offer business-minded individuals, with a passion for helping young people, the chance to own a business that is not only one that they can be proud of, but also potentially profitable.”

2017 was a banner year for Class 101; the franchise doubled in size in terms of locations and broke several sales records. The Lexington, Ky.-based company, which celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2017, also has been recognized as both an Emerging Franchise and the 13th fastest-growing franchise in the nation by popular franchise opportunity portal Franchise Gator.
