The Kidcreate Studio franchise is a growing movement of entrepreneurs who are inspired to bring greater levels of creativity and fun to kids through their award-winning art curriculum. They specialize in children's art classes, camps, and art-themed birthday parties, for kids aged 18 months to 12 years. Classes are packed with fun art activities like pottery, drawing, painting, and of course "Messy Time". Through this process, kids learn about art concepts, techniques, and history.
Beautiful brick and mortar studio, keeping the mess and staff out of Franchise Owners’ homes. We combine this with our on-the-go partnerships which enables Owners to bring our highly sought-after curriculum to their community. With over 10 years of experience, we’ve learned how to optimize each model to complement one another and as a result, we have some of the most robust unit economics in the children’s franchise space.
Cross Marketing: Having a physical studio and a mobile on-the-go division allows our Franchise Owners to attract a variety of clients and increase repeat business. It also allows them to implement effective cross-marketing strategies accessing kids all over town while keeping marketing dollars at a minimum and revenues high! For example, Franchise Owners can market birthday parties to kids enrolled in On-The-Go classes.
Simple Scalability: Our business model offers unlimited potential for scalability. Unlike competitors, our low investment and two-businesses-in-one model helps Franchise Owners access customers all over their community increasing profitability and allowing them to quickly expand into multiple locations.
Multiple Revenue Streams: Our revenue streams complement each other creating steady cash flow. Franchise Owners take advantage of studio classes, on-the-go classes, birthday parties and summer camps, and family memberships and retail items.
Freedom and Flexibility: Our business model was created with work/life balance in mind. We offer web-based platforms, automated marketing systems, and a studio location to keep vendors and suppliers out of the home. Our model affords Franchise Owners both the freedom and flexibility to build a stable and successful business while being able to enjoy time with their families.
Support and Training
Training Our training program, Kidcreate Academy, consists of a 100-hour combination of self-study, classroom training, and on-the-job instruction. The initial training phase takes place over the course of five days in Minnesota. Onsite training takes place at the Franchise Owner’s studio location in order to prepare them for their grand opening. This usually takes about three days.
On-Going Support The training and support will never end as we continuously strive to improve the Kidcreate Studio system. To ensure that we remain current with industry trends and new curriculum, managers and Franchise Owners may be required to participate in refresher training courses each year at a Franchisor designated location.
Field Support Our Field Consultant will work with Franchise Owners on a regular basis to refine and improve their local operations for up to 14 days per year at their franchise location. This includes on-site training for up to 4 days during Grand Opening.
Marketing We have developed a variety of advertising materials and sales aids specifically designed for Franchise Owners to use to promote their business. Additionally, our Marketing Director is available to provide one-on-one ongoing assistance with local marketing programs. Franchise Owners are expected to spend $500 per month on local advertising. This is in addition to a contribution to the national brand fund in the amount of 1% of gross sales.
Annual Meetings We do not hold annual meetings at this time. However, we may provide periodic seminars, workshops, and additional trainings for Franchise Owners and their manager.
We are looking for entrepreneurs who understand how important art education is for children, and is ready to help fill the void by providing their communities with a fun and truly enriching experience. More importantly, we are seeking business owners to be actively involved in leading and managing the operations of their Kidcreate Studio. This is NOT a franchise for an individual who envisions themselves teaching art classes or being actively in charge of children. Rather, our ideal Franchise Owners are business minded sales professionals and individuals who want to build and scale a successful empire while feeling good about the value of the work they do.
We have identified a few qualities needed to not only achieve the levels of success we are accustomed to, but also to find true fulfillment in the business. Since, 70% of our revenues stem from securing partnerships, individuals with an entrepreneurial spirit and innate sales skills will be the most successful. They are also natural networkers! Seen as a community connector, their biggest motivator is to build strong working relationships that brings families and communities together. Lastly, they are passionate about bringing enrichment to children’s lives through the love of art. Maybe not an artist but they believe that art education is a vital part of childhood development.
