Young Chefs Academy Franchise Taps Into The Cooking-Show Craze
Sky-high viewership for kid-oriented versions of adult cooking competitions creates a rich opportunity for getting kids engaged with classes
There is a huge amount of interest in cooking competitions on television. For proof, just look at the ratings — and the sheer number of them, with more coming online all the time.
And it’s not just adults. Kids also are fascinated by the junior version of these competitions, and that’s where Young Chefs Academy® children’s cooking school franchise owners are tapping into a huge opportunity.
Young Chefs Academy is creating the cooking competitors of today and tomorrow
“Kids love to compete, whether it’s in sports or for good grades in the classroom,” says Julie Burleson, founder and chief executive officer. “And they are absolutely in love with shows like Chopped Junior and MasterChef Junior. They want to get into the kitchen themselves, and we provide that opportunity.”
In fact, Young Chefs Academy kids cooking franchise students have competed on some major shows. That shows anyone who’s looking into the concept, as either an engaged parent or potential franchise owner, that its proprietary curriculum is serious, effective and ready to go the distance.
A fun way to build a lifelong skill set
“Kids tell their parents they want to learn how to cook when they see their peers having a blast and rocking it on TV,” Burleson says. “And parents are more than happy to see their child learn a skill that they’ll use their whole life, and also make new friends and take away equally valuable lessons around planning, cooperation and teamwork.”
Through classes, workshops, parties and camps, Young Chefs Academy franchise takes kids into the kitchen and teaches them not just how to cook, but also how to work independently and as a team to master new skills. A Young Chefs Academy franchise is a fun, scalable and profitable business providing a rewarding enrichment opportunity that kids and parents love.
