"The kids love to cook together, and even with all different backgrounds and interests they quickly become friends," says Julie Burleson, founder, and CEO. "And they’re not just learning how to cook — they learn how to read a recipe and see what happens when you are careful, follow instructions and work together."
Are you someone who is passionate about kids and cares about important childhood-enrichment opportunities? If so, take a look at realizing your own dream of small-business ownership and financial independence with a Young Chefs Academy franchise.
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.
Childhood enrichment is a big and growing business sector. Young Chefs Academy taps into parents' desire to give their children opportunities to learn and grow. As schools cut back on music and arts programs, Young Chefs Academy steps in and fills a vital niche for creativity - and fun!
Own a business with a well-known, national profile. Many Young Chefs Academy graduates have gone on to compete on such major kids-oriented cooking challenges as MasterChef Junior and Chopped Junior, which has given the business a very high profile throughout the country. That has spurred interest and growth in all the markets we serve, as well as a demand for Young Chefs Academy locations in new territories.
Getting into a Young Chefs Academy children's franchise is easy, thanks to our affordable investment costs. What's more, it's a business with a high potential profit margin: operating costs are low, and there's ample opportunity to scale up by adding locations to serve your growing client base.
