Why Now is the Time to Invest in a Young Chefs Academy Franchise
The children’s cooking franchise fills an important need for a fun, rewarding enrichment opportunity that both parents and kids love
With schools closed and kids at home, it’s been a difficult time for parents trying to find meaningful childhood-enrichment opportunities until school resumes. And even then, some parents have decided their children will remain home. According to a poll by USA Today and Ipsos, six out of every 10 parents surveyed with at least one child in K-12 say they would be likely to pursue at-home learning options as opposed to sending their children back to school this fall. Fortunately, learning doesn’t only happen in classrooms. For entrepreneurs who are passionate about kids, families, and care about providing fun programs in their community that teach life-enhancing skills, a children’s cooking school franchise like Young Chefs Academy checks all of those boxes.
A Young Chefs Academy feeds parents’ desires to give their children opportunities to learn and grow. Our easy-to-operate kids cooking school franchise meets children where they are by offering several skill levels to carry students from kindergarten through high school: KinderCooks®, JuniorChefs™ and SeniorChefs™. At each level, kids not only learn how to cook various dishes, but also learn valuable life lessons about the value of teamwork, food origins and nutrition.
“This is a simple and solid entry-level business for anyone who’s looking for a career that combines a passion for cooking and working with children,” says Julie Burleson, founder and CEO of Young Chefs Academy. “It’s also a great family business, which is why we have a lot of couples, as well as parents and their grown children, operating franchises and having a lot of fun.”
