I’m interested in working with a child-centered franchise, but do they make much profit?

The United States has almost 75 million people under the age of 18 — that’s approximately 23% of the country’s population, and all of them need access to businesses that cater to their unique needs.

Parents and guardians want the very best for their children, and with more parents working outside the home, there are increased demands on the market for businesses that specifically cater to the needs of children and youth. Additionally, with more emphasis on standardized testing and cuts on extracurricular programming in schools nationwide, many parents turn to external sources to help give their children valuable experience in the arts, sports, and other life skills.

The children’s enrichment industry is incredibly broad. Some companies focus on providing practical support for the needs of children and families, including businesses that specialize in children’s clothing or haircuts, photography studios that capture memories, and necessary services like daycare or tutoring.

Other businesses focus on extracurricular options like dance, t-ball, gymnastics, soccer clubs, or even birthday party business opportunities. Each of these markets have recession resistant profitability and benefit from families that spread the word to others and bring multiple children to the business. Franchises that tend to see the highest range of profitability, however, are those that draw from multiple markets. Franchises like Young Chefs Academy that offer birthday parties, for instance, are able to take advantage of a $25 billion dollar industry — an incredibly profitable opportunity! Franchises with an emphasis on developing important skills at age-appropriate levels like Young Chefs Academy are also able to draw on the multi-billion children’s entertainment and education markets.

With the population of children set to expand another five million by 2030, there is a reliable stream of incoming customers throughout the nation, and cooking franchises fill a niche in the market that is both unique and in high demand. An average of 400,000 people watch Food Network at some point during the day, driving greater interest in cooking and baking across all age levels, including kids!

What Benefits Are There for Opening a Children’s Franchise?

There are incredible intrinsic benefits to working with children, not least of which is knowing that you make a meaningful difference in your community. We spend so many of our waking hours working — why not work at a job where you get to have fun while you make a living? Working with children means seeing growth and development before your eyes.

With Young Chefs Academy, children often come with little to no experience working in the kitchen and leave with skills that stay with them for a lifetime. You’ll build lasting relationships with children and their families, and get to leave each day knowing your time has been valuably spent.

Since our model allows for children to come back to us throughout their childhood and teenage years, we also get the privilege of watching them grow. While some of our students have gone on to compete in popular cooking show competitions for youth like Master Chef Junior and Chopped Junior, we know that each of our young chefs have been given a chance to gain important life skills in a safe, nurturing environment.

"This is the perfect recipe for showing children cooking is a lifelong skill that can be artistic, creative, and fun"
