Cooking is hot. One look at the sheer volume of cooking programs on television illustrates the ongoing and increasing public interest in learning how to cook — and cooking as a sport. Cooking-show competitions have made rock stars out of amateur chefs, putting many on the path to national and even global stardom. And it’s not just adults taking part. Junior versions of popular programs and competitions, as well as those created exclusively for children and teens, are on the rise. That’s why Young Chefs® Academy is a popular and growing children’s franchise. Through classes, workshops, and camps, it takes kids into the kitchen and teaches them not just how to cook, but how to work independently and as a team to master new skills. Along the way, they earn patches toward a coveted black chef’s jacket! Young Chefs Academy programs are a fun, rewarding enrichment opportunity that kids and parents love — and that is the platform for a scalable, profitable business.
