Buying a kid freindly franchise with Young Chefs Academy is a great opportunity.

When they’re young, kids learn quickly. How to walk, how to use the bathroom, how to tie their shoes — and later, how to read, how to add and subtract and more.

The skills children learn at an early age help set them up for a lifetime of success. But the world of children’s education has seen many changes over the past few years. The coronavirus pandemic led to a rise in remote learning, schools continue to struggle to fund extracurricular activities, particularly the arts, and often classes are so large kids don’t get a lot of valuable one-on-one time.

Educational opportunities outside of school can fill in the gaps created by remote learning, large classes or lack of opportunities in traditional classrooms. From additional help and tutoring to assisting a child in mastering a subject, art classes to give them a creative outlet, or exploring a different hobby or new skill, there are kid friendly franchises for every educational need.

Participating in educational programs outside of school encourages kids’ natural curiosity and inspires a love of learning for children who may struggle in school. Opportunities outside the classroom are also beneficial to kids’ cognitive and social development, as most educational programs require kids to work in teams. Children who pursue learning and activities outside of school are often happier and find greater success in school.

Because children’s education continues to increase in importance, kid friendly franchises are increasing in number. Beyond franchises that offer homework help or advanced instruction, there are franchises for kids who want to learn about robotics or coding, kids who want to learn to throw pottery or act, and franchises like Young Chefs Academy which teach kids valuable life skills.

If you are passionate about children’s education, becoming a franchise owner is a great opportunity to put your passion to work and make a difference in children’s lives.

Participating in educational programs, like a kid friendly franchise with Young Chefs Academy is a learning experience.

Are Education Franchises Profitable?

Parents want their children to have the best. The best education, the best experiences, the best future. That’s why, even in tough economic times, spending money on children’s education remains a priority for parents. Because parents value education, the children’s education industry is constantly growing and generally considered to be recession-resistant. From an investment standpoint, education franchises also typically have low overhead and initial investment fees, allowing for high profit margins.

Depending on the type of educational franchise, there may also be opportunities to add multiple streams of revenue. Young Chefs Academy is one of those kid friendly franchises that offers classes appropriate for different age groups and serves a wider customer base by hosting birthday parties, holiday special events and even adult classes.

Becoming a franchise owner is often easier and more affordable than creating an independent business from scratch. Franchise owners become part of a well-known brand with an already existing customer base, and get to use a business model that has already been proven, so they tend to see higher returns on investment. Owning a franchise in the education industry is a win-win.

What is the Best Education Franchise to Own?

Education franchises tend to fall in one of four categories: academic, art, science and technology, and language. The most popular and successful franchises fall into the arts or STEM categories.

Arts education programs have become more popular in recent years as schools are forced to cut funding. These programs allow kids to study things like painting, sculpting, photography, drama, music and more. For parents and kids looking for a more well-rounded education, arts education programs are a great choice.

STEM-based programs that teach kids how to do things like code or engineer designs are great for kids looking for more specific or challenging science, technology or mathematics outside of what they’re learning for school.

We think Young Chefs Academy is one of the best kid friendly franchises to own because it unites STEM and art. Learning about measurements or how to halve or double a recipe involves the use of math skills, while the chemistry of baking and seeing substances change their forms (solids to liquids, liquids to gasses) inspires a love of science. Reading recipes and learning to describe tastes and textures can improve language skills. And of course, experimenting with flavors and coming up with beautiful food presentations allows children to be creative. In addition to encouraging creativity and learning, with Young Chefs Academy kids learn valuable life skills.

The Benefits of Cooking Lessons for Children

Why cook with kids? Teaching kids to cook has tons of benefits beyond simply teaching a skill they’ll use all their lives. Here are the top four benefits of signing kids up for cooking lessons.

Build Confidence

Cooking lessons and time in a kitchen is a great place to nourish a child’s self esteem. Kids feel proud when they’ve successfully prepared a dish, and opportunities to learn things like how to safely use a knife to cut up their own fruit for a snack can help kids feel accomplished. Achieving success in the kitchen — that they can taste! — may encourage kids to try new things outside of the kitchen as well.

Create Adventurous Eaters

Wondering if a picky child is getting all the vitamins and nutrients they need is stressful. But kids are much more likely to try a food they helped make! They’ll be exposed to foods they might not try at home, and learning to make home-cooked meals at an early age can also help kids develop healthy habits for life.

Physical Development

For young children especially, the tasks of stirring, measuring, rolling and shaping can help with the development of fine motor skills. As kids age, they can continue to find age-appropriate instruction with Young Chefs Academy and continue to hone their skills.

Social Development

Working in a kitchen as part of a class creates opportunities to collaborate and work together. It can help kids learn to communicate with and rely on other people. Few things are as special as making something delicious and then enjoying it together.

Young Chefs Academy provides a valuable service by providing children with a safe space to make mistakes, learn, be curious and creative. The confidence, social skills, and other things that come with learning their way around a kitchen in turn helps them be successful in other aspects of their lives.
