Benefits of Owning a LearningRx Franchise
Why should you choose LearningRx? Our franchisees tell us the greatest thing about owning a LearningRx center is the chance to make a daily difference in the lives of students and families in their community. There are very few franchise opportunities that can have such a lasting impact on lives while also allowing you to grow a business. In fact, we recently surveyed our franchisees and asked surveyed our franchisees and asked them to describe LearningRx.
In two words, their answer was, “life changing.”
In addition to the amazing changes our franchisees witness on a daily basis in their centers, owning a LearningRx franchise will also give you the opportunity to control your destiny and own a business that offers not only career fulfillment, but also financial stability.
“Being a LearningRx franchisee has not only brought positive change to the hundreds of families we have worked with, but also to my own. I am so grateful for LearningRx!” –Rich Frieder, LearningRx Franchisee – Eagan, Savage, and Woodbury, MN

LearningRx Franchise Requirements
A successful franchisee
doesn’t require a specific background. What is essential is an intrinsic desire to change lives in your community. At the center of what we do is a desire to change lives – to make learning easier, to improve quality of life, and to change the way people look at learning struggles.
Our business is built on changing and expanding the way that people look at learning and the brain, so a qualified franchisee is one who is comfortable with and expects frequent change – because our industry is still new and evolving.
Some of the ideal characteristics of a LearningRx Franchisee are:
- Likes competition and winning
- Enjoys working with people
- Sells and Closes effectively
- Takes initiative
LearningRx Location Requirements
Our centers are typically placed in areas with about 150,000 in population. We consider other demographic information when choosing a territory location such as
- The number of children between ages 10 and 14,
- The median household income.
The center location should be placed in the middle 1/3 of the territory to offer adequate protection to the franchisee.

“There is no down-side to LearningRx. It has been such a joy to be a part of this group. I just came off of a Program Review and I am excited, and overall I am just so grateful to be able to be a part of this. This year’s Convention was wonderful, and the Playbook, what a great idea! You guys targeted ideas that were so powerful! Please make sure everyone there knows what a great experience this is for us.”

Prior Career: Chief Executive Officer in Mortgage Banking
“After many years in corporate banking, I was ready for something different: more rewarding. I got involved with LearningRx because two of my three kids have struggled with learning challenges and I was dissatisfied with the way the school system handles kids like mine. Like all parents, I was looking for a fix and not just segregation and accommodations. LearningRx seemed to be the solution I was looking for. As there were no locations in my area, and after quite a bit of soul searching, I decided to open a Center in my area. My kids were our first two students and we saw amazing results. I have since opened a second location. We are seeing miracles every day. I’m happy I made the decision to bring LearningRx to my area.”

“Once I realized that LearningRx’s formula and approach was the answer to help with my son’s learning differences, I knew I needed to open up my own center. My wife and I prayed about it and ask God to ‘close the door’ if this wasn’t His plan, but He never closed any doors. In fact, once I went to LearningRx’s corporate headquarters and met with Ken Gibson and his wonderful family, I knew this was the right decision for me and my family. The entire process was pretty smooth. Everyone at LearningRx, including the Franchisees, was very helpful and pointed me in all the right directions. It’s been great to work with a company that thrives on helping students and families across the country. I’m proud to be a part of LearningRx.”
Prior Career: School Principal
“When I was driving to work one day, I heard a commercial on the radio about a company called LearningRx. The commercial was intriguing as the message was about treating the cause of the learning struggle, not the symptom. I thought to myself, ‘This is what our son could have used when he was in school.’ I wrote the name of the company down and that evening looked it up on the website. I called the home office and a man by the name of Ken Gibson answered the phone! Little did I know I was speaking to the founder of the company!
“That phone call took place over eight years ago. I have been a franchise owner for 7 years and it has been one of the most rewarding endeavors I have ever encountered. I spent almost 8 months investigating the LearningRx model before I became an owner. I actually started out as the director of the center and 6 months later purchased it from the owner. It was a huge step for my husband and me to take, as I left a very good, secure job to start over again. Here I was – an empty nester working harder than ever. People thought I was crazy.
“I can say with confidence that this has been the most rewarding experience of my life. I have an incredible team who has changed the lives of so many students. To be part of this transformation is a gift from God.
“Has it been easy? No it hasn't! It takes a great deal of hard work, dedication and perseverance to run a successful business.
“I have been fortunate to work with new centers as a consultation coach. It has been extremely rewarding to watch their businesses grow. I consider all of the franchise owners colleagues and friends. We support each other in so many ways.
“I have received so many blessings by being a part of this franchise system. God has carried me through an incredible journey.”

"I have been a LearningRx franchisee for almost 3 years now and have just opened my third center in the Twin Cities area. I am so thrilled to be in this position! The impetus for my wife and me opening our initial center in Savage, MN was the desire to change our lifestyle and the struggles our youngest daughter was having with ADHD and language delays.
“I had been in the corporate world for 20 years in various sales and marketing roles. I wanted to focus my career on something more meaningful. When my wife and I came across LearningRx, we were really excited, but also skeptical — the program sounded so transformational. Well, we can say now after almost 400 graduates in our centers over the past 3 years that this program is truly transformational. The opportunity to change lives and families through LearningRx has been a real gift and honor to be a part of. We have also been thrilled with the success we have been blessed with. And my youngest daughter, who hated reading, now reads herself to sleep most nights and begs us to let her keep reading with a flashlight once the lights are turned off!
“Being a LearningRx franchisee has not only brought positive change to the hundreds of families we have worked with, but also to my own. I am so grateful for LearningRx!"
