A learning center chain is expanding its footprint in the region with the completion of new leases in central New Jersey and Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
According to brokers with Lee & Associates New Jersey, the deals by Kumon Learning Center include a 1,100-square-foot commitment at 195 Nassau St. in Princeton. The operator will occupy the space under a lease with Nassau 195 LLC, benefiting from a downtown location and one that’s adjacent to Princeton University.
In Yardley, Pennsylvania, Kumon is taking 924 square feet at 40 South Main St., according to a news release. The space will provide it with a storefront in the central business district and access to a mix of restaurant, entertainment and retail options.
“Both locations will serve as excellent opportunities for Kumon’s expansion and growth,” said Kyle Janoczkin, an associate with Lee & Associates New Jersey. “Historic downtown Princeton will enable Kumon to establish a presence in one of the most premier and kid-friendly towns in the state. Additionally, Yardley is another perfect location for a new Kumon Learning Center. They are joining a retail-friendly and walkable neighborhood that has experienced tremendous growth over the years.”
Janoczkin led the team representing Kumon. Lauri Names of Princeton Realty Management Group represented the landlord in Princeton, while Brite Realty Services’ Joanne Cuddahy represented ownership in-house in Yardley.
“Virtual teaching during COVID-19 greatly affected our youth and many students are still struggling to excel academically,” Janoczkin added. “Programs like Kumon will allow children the in-person foundation and academic stimulation they need to succeed. We are excited to watch Kumon thrive in both locations and help support young students globally.”
