Why Choose a CAPlus Franchise?

CAPlus 02

CAPlus has a proven business model with a neverending market of clients – high school students on their way to college. With the current economy and parents seriously challenged with how to pay enormous tuition bills, CAPlus continues to grow, year after year. People need guidance on how to save money and minimize college debt. With nine million kids in high school (10-12th grade) and 12 million students currently in college, the market opportunity is endless.

With a CAPlus franchise, your time will be spent developing a network of clients and referrals, not developing marketing concepts and business operating systems. You can become a business owner from day one and have a successful business in no time, something that could take years on your own. Continuous training and support is available by CAPlus to ensure your continued growth and success.


Benefits of Choosing a CAPlus Franchise

The best features of a CAPlus franchise include no inventory fees, low start-up costs, high return on investment, exceptional training – no prior knowledge of the college search process necessary, and a service in a market that is continually growing! Additionally, there are three unique levels of investment tailored to your skills and commitment.
