Young Chefs Academy is turning cooking into a team sport
Learn more about our franchise opportunities
Grab a piece of the white-hot culinary-skills market and enrich the lives of your community’s children. Young Chefs Academy is popular with parents and kids alike, and every class, workshop and camp is an opportunity to grow the client base and bring in new business.
Cooking is a lifelong skill that heavily affects how and what we eat, and kids who master the basics early in life are well-positioned to make healthy choices about nutrition and meal prep throughout childhood and beyond.
Young Chefs Academy provides the opportunity for kids to learn hands-on cooking skills, as well as how to collaborate and work as a team should they pursue a career in the culinary arts as a chef, restaurant owner or even dietician.
Not all kids are athletically inclined, but they love watching kids’ cooking competitions on TV and YouTube. Young Chefs Academy gives them an arena of their own while also helping them build valuable skills.
A Young Chefs Academy franchise is an affordable business opportunity. Initial costs will be driven by the physical location and size of your franchise — many Young Chefs Academy owners opt for a single, two-kitchen facility, or pursue multiple locations as they find them to be more cost-effective.

A new franchisee's results may differ from the represented performance. There is no assurance that you will do as well and you must accept that risk. This offering is made by prospectus only.
Young Chefs Academy is a scalable, easy-to-operate business that meets kids where they are by offering several skill levels to carry students from kindergarten through high school: KinderCooks®, JuniorChefs™, and SeniorChefs™. At every step, kids learn to cook dishes of varying complexity, which gives them confidence in and out of the kitchen. They also pick up valuable life lessons about where food comes from, nutrition, and the value of teamwork.
