Reasons to own a Young Chefs Academy franchise

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.

Life lessons

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.

Enrichment is Important

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.

Cooking is a Sport

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.
