Summer Camp Means BIG Business For Our Art Franchise Owners!

Summer Camp Means BIG Business For Our Art Franchise Owners!

Is Summer Camp REALLY Big Business?

Just Ask Our Art Franchise Owners!

art franchise

Summer camps have for long been a perennial favorite among children, and parents, nationwide. Not only do summer camps provide kids with opportunities to stay engaged and have rewarding experiences during summer vacation, but they also give parents a much-needed child care option in a safe, wholesome environment.

What people often don’t think of is that summer camps, like the ones offered by Kidcreate Franchise Owners, can be a really big business. So, apart from enriching children’s lives, you’ll also be able to earn a good living.   

In this post, we’ll look at some of the statistics that show what an excellent opportunity a summer camp business is, how you could own one, and what sets us apart from other kid’s businesses.

2022 CAMP UPDATES

Kidcreate has officially opened our Summer Camp program to outstanding success!  Our camps are full and have waiting lists.  We have had so much success with our camp programs early on this year that we have doubled up our camp enrollments by offering two sets of camps for our Kidcreate kids.

We offer both morning (AM) and afternoon camps (PM) to accommodate the demands of our Kidcreate parents.  Summer camp revenues at Kidcreate are expected to nearly triple in size and scope this Summer with no plans to slow down.  And camps are not just for Summer.  We offer No school camps, Spring Break camps and Winter break camps throughout the year!

Kidcreate is doing its part by providing an excellent rewarding art enrichment camp program to Parents who are always looking for options for their kids.  And our franchise partners are none too happy to operate successful, enriching and safe camp options in their communities.

THE STATISTICS

Now, with that in mind, let’s look at some of the statistics relating to summer camps. Currently, there are more than 12,000 operating camps in the United States alone, including 7,000 overnight camps and 5,000 day camps. More than six million children across the United States attend camp every summer and these camps employ 1.5 million people every year.

Of the summer camps in the United States, 60% are residential camps, while 20% are day camps, and 17% are a combination of the two. Residential camps are those camps where children stay overnight and, in contrast, day camps offer programs that start in the morning and end in the evening.          

This statistic you’re probably most interested in, is the one relating to revenue. And here it gets remarkably interesting. Combined, the industry generates profits of more than $15 billion a year. That is simply a staggering number.    

When we drill down on these revenues, we see the average tuition charged by camps per week:

      • 15% have an average tuition of less than $100.
      • 16% have an average tuition of $100 to $200.
      • 15% have an average tuition of $200 to $400. 
      • 19% have an average tuition of $400 to $600.
      • 5% have an average tuition of $600 to $1000.
      • 9% have an average tuition of $1000 to $1500.
      • 21% have an average tuition of over $1500.

As you’ve probably seen, most camps are charging fairly high tuitions…and they’re getting it! This simply means that when you charge higher tuitions, you earn higher revenue.

Here, the statistics show the average annual gross revenue of camps to be the following:

      • 25% earn less than $500,000. 
      • 16% earn between $500,000 and $1 million.
      • 38% earned between $1 million and $3 million.
      • 21% earn above $3 million.

Apart from showing that camps are earning excellent revenues, these statistics also show that most of the camps are seeing growth in their revenue year on year. For example, in 2018, 46% of camps saw an increase in enrollment numbers of 4% to 15% compared to the previous year. And it’s quite obvious that if your enrollment numbers go up, your revenue does too.

Obviously, those numbers would have seen a change during summer 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but it’s expected that summer 2021 will see those numbers rise again, simply because parents need to go to work, and children need socialization and interaction in a safe environment.

You’re probably bored of statistics now, but the key takeaway is that operating a camp is a very profitable venture and it’s a worthwhile opportunity to take when you get the chance. And that’s where we come in.

WHAT WE DO: The “Why” Behind Our Art Franchise

Because our Founder Lara Olson was discouraged by the limited art exposure her son was receiving at school, she started Kidcreate Studio. Since then, it has become one of the most successful children’s art franchise businesses in the country.

We have the following offerings to children nationwide:

      • Art classes for kids where they’re introduced to the wonderful world of art. We provide a positive, self-esteem building environment for children to explore the visual arts and they get the opportunity to get messy with paint, clay, and so much more. 
      • Birthday parties where we make children’s birthdays special. At these parties, children and their friends will create a take home art project with the help of an instructor.
      • Mobile studios that offer mobile classes that help organizations to add more art education into the lives of the kids at their institution. 

Considering the excellent opportunity that camps offer, you’ll be excited to hear that we also offer you, as a Franchise Owner, the opportunity to present art camps. These camps offer customers affordable camp programs for their kids who are not in school, on school breaks, and also camps specialized for the summer months.

Business Owner Art Franchise

What Sets Our Art Franchise Apart?

So, what sets Kidcreate Studio apart from other art franchise opportunities and kids’ businesses in your area? Let’s take a look.

FULFILLMENT

Owning a Kidcreate Studio offers you the benefit of feeling a deep sense of purpose. We think one of our Franchise Owners described this perfectly when asked about the most enjoyable aspect of owning a Kidcreate art franchise. 

She said: 

I get to work with some truly wonderful people! I love being a leader/role model for the entire staff and the Franchisees. Being a part of Kidcreate from the beginning has made me appreciate all that it is and all that it is still yet to be. The opportunity to work flexible hours, if needed, is nice to have as an option. Every day is different in some way, and it has been a constant adventure on the craziest of roller coaster rides, and I wouldn’t want it any other way! 

I also LOVE seeing the looks on the children’s faces after they have created one of our projects. They are so proud! This never gets old! It’s not only a perk as a Studio Manager, but it’s a perk in my daily life! It might sound cheesy, but it’s so very true. You can’t help but smile right along with them and share their joy.

Besides this, you’ll also have a financially rewarding career.

Flexible business model

We offer a unique art franchise model with the ability to bring our highly sought-after curriculum to child-friendly locations in your area with our mobile business. You also have the option to offer classes and camps in a beautiful brick-and-mortar studio location. This means total flexibility and, if you prefer, you can start out with a mobile business and add a studio later. 

Community Focus

With a strong community focus, you’ll be able to partner with community bodies in fighting against the decline of art education, and you’ll become a well-respected voice of change as the face of the local Kidcreate Studio. 

Recession-Resistant Model

We’ve thrived during the 2008/09 economic recession and during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is simply because our one-of-a-kind business cannot be replicated by online giants. For you, as the Franchise Owner, this means you’ll sleep soundly knowing your business is proven to be recession-resistant. 

Scalability

With a Kidcreate Studio, you’ll be able to open a new art franchise location in as little as 60 days, while also being able to grow your business to your entire region with multiple units. If you choose, you could stick to a single location in your neighborhood, the choice is up to you. The key, however, is that this offers a level of scalability and flexibility not easily found elsewhere. 

Strong Profitability

Like they always say, the numbers don’t lie, and looking at the statistics, a Kidcreate Studio art franchise is an excellent opportunity for strong profitability. With our on-the-go model, you’ll be able to generate revenues from your business almost immediately and your overhead costs are kept extremely low, which results in impressive profit margins. Also, the ability to add a brick-and-mortar store to your business down the line creates additional revenue streams and cross-marketing opportunities. 

Support and Marketing   

Unlike starting your own business, where you’ll be mostly going it alone, we have a fabulous team to support you every step of the way. We offer training, ongoing support, annual meetings, and a full curriculum. Simply, we help and guide you from your initial call to your grand opening and right through the running of your art franchise business.

We also have a dedicated marketing specialist to help you with a variety of marketing campaigns. So, as a new Franchise Owner, we’ll build you a localized website specific to your location and will help you with things like social media marketing, direct mail, and public relations. 

What Can You Make?

Now you probably want to know what you can make as a Franchise Owner. Well, for a mobile studio the minimum investment required is $65,765 with a franchise fee of $45,000. For a brick-and-mortar studio, the minimum investment required is $110,705, also with a franchise fee of $45,000.

These numbers pale in comparison to what you can earn considering the revenue statistics of camps. In fact, your studio has the potential to earn a revenue of $466,044*.

Making Waves in North Miami!

Making Waves in North Miami!

kids' art franchise

As an art studio franchise just for kids, Kidcreate Studio specializes in children’s art classes as well as art camps and art-themed birthday parties. As a Kidcreate Franchise Owner, you can enjoy everything that comes with being your own boss and running your own business, bringing significant financial return on investment, but also bringing great emotional return through helping children grow and develop by providing them with an essential part of their childhood education. Thanks to our very special newest Franchise Owner, we’ll be able to offer our services to kids, parents, and educators in North Miami, FL!

We are pleased to introduce our newest Franchise Owner, Kenerly Wright, who is about to open her first North Miami-area art studio franchise. Kenerly is an excellent reminder that Kidcreate is a franchise opportunity available to people from all backgrounds and professions. Before investing in a Kidcreate art studio franchise, Kenerly earned her experience and knowledge in Operations, Management and Leadership in the property management field in Miami, FL.

How Kenerly Found Our Art Studio Franchise

As a parent of two young children, Kenerly was looking for a career change that would allow her to spend more time at home with their family but also allow her the freedom to be in control of her own destiny. She wanted to go back to work after spending nearly three years at home with her two kids, Ziona and Laureate, but she wanted to do it on her own terms. After feeling comfortable with the idea to allow her kids to enter day care, Kenerly began to look for opportunities for her own career life. The opportunity to be her own boss and work for herself was very appealing, as was the possibility of being able to create her own flexible work schedule and bring balance to her family life. 

Although she did not necessarily begin her search looking for franchise opportunities, she quickly decided that would be the best approach for herself. Kenerly had fond memories of putting her own kids in enrichment activities and was amazed at how much parents invest into their children through enrichment programs. She soon came across an advertisement for the franchise opportunity at Kidcreate while searching for businesses for sale and felt that it was the right fit for her situation. The idea of being involved in working with children just seemed to make sense since her own kids would definitely be involved in and around the family business themselves. Working with children has always been a passion for her- particularly doing art projects, which is something she enjoys doing at home with her own kids. Her kitchen is full of Fridge worthy masterpieces that her own kids created. Kenerly is looking forward to having the ability to invest in her children’s future and build a family legacy as a business owner as well as helping children in the community find their passion for art and creativity.

An Emotionally Rewarding Career

There are, of course, a huge variety of franchise opportunities to choose from, across many different areas and industries, and the reason Kenerly chose to invest in the children’s art industry was due to the lack of funding and focus on art within schools. With many educational establishments across the country having to cut costs and cope with a lack of funding, creative subjects such as the arts are some of the first to go, a sad truth which Kenerly became aware of and felt that an extracurricular activity focusing on art was a sound investment, both financially and emotionally. Kenerly enjoys teaching and being with children and feels that bringing education to a child’s life carries a high emotional reward. “When you see a child’s face light up after they understand something, it brings a feeling of fulfillment,” is the sentiment shared by many Kidcreate franchise owners.

With a passion for educating, working with children, and giving something back to the community, a franchise opportunity with Kidcreate was a great fit for Kenerly.

A Strong Support System

All new Franchise Owners attend a Kidcreate Studio Discovery Day in our Eden Prairie, Minnesota headquarters where they can meet the Founder of Kidcreate Studio, Lara Olson, as well as participate in an art lesson and get a feel for what a Kidcreate art studio franchise looks like. Kenerly thoroughly enjoyed her Discovery Day and appreciated seeing how it all worked. Kenerly was very proud of her accomplishments on her “Bird On A Wire” project.

As with many of our existing Franchise Owners, meeting Lara and seeing how passionate she is about children’s art is what drew Kenerly to a Kidcreate art studio franchise. At Kidcreate we are not just interested in teaching children about art, we understand how art contributes to and enhances their education, and this passion and enthusiasm is passed on to all our Franchise Owners.

Kenerly was also able to meet our extensive executive team that is responsible for providing support to new and existing Franchise Owners alike. At Kidcreate we understand that our new Franchise Owners will have a million questions, and our corporate support team is on hand to support you 100% throughout your journey with us. One of the huge benefits of investing in a Kidcreate franchise is the training and support our Franchise Owners receive from day one. A great deal of advice and continued support is available throughout the process, from setting up and getting started, right through to opening the doors and beyond.

Becoming an Art Studio Franchise Owner with Kidcreate

Deciding to open your own business or invest in a franchise is a big decision, not to be taken lightly or rushed into. It is essential to carry out due diligence and thoroughly research the available options to ensure the decision is the right one for you, as a successful business requires hard work, dedication, and passion for what you are doing. Kenerly advises all potential Franchise Owners who are looking into franchising to do their research and make sure they are in a place to dedicate the time and effort to make the business a success.

Of course, a background in teaching or working with children is a great starting point for success with a child-related franchise, but it’s not the most important indicator of how successful your Kidcreate location will be. We are interested in candidates from all backgrounds with the determination to succeed and a desire to help and make a difference in people’s lives. Kenerly sees herself as very driven and goal-oriented person, and the thing she is most looking forward to when opening her Kidcreate Mobile business is interacting with and providing a safe and educational experience for many children in her community. We wish Kenerly every success with her new Kidcreate Mobile business and look forward to hearing her stories!

The investment for the On-The-Go mobile franchise model with Kidcreate starts at just $64,520. Please visit our franchise website for more information.

How Does Our On-The-Go Program Benefit Our Art Franchise Owners?

How Does Our On-The-Go Program Benefit Our Art Franchise Owners?

HOW DOES OUR ON-THE-GO PROGRAM BENEFIT ART FRANCHISE OWNERS?

As a children’s art franchise that specializes not only in children’s art classes, but also in vacation camps, workshops, and art-themed birthday parties, owning a Kidcreate Studio art franchise brings with it excellent financial benefits, as well as providing the opportunity to give back to the local community.

The main reason our Franchise Owners decide to invest in a Kidcreate franchise is the flexibility to find a balance between work and home life, and the ability to take a step back from the pressures and constraints of the corporate world. Kidcreate offers you the chance to run your own business and be your own boss, giving you both a financially-rewarding career, and also a deep sense of purpose and fulfillment.

Kidcreate also offers a flexible business model, offering two possible options for new Franchise Owners, enabling them to choose which of our programs suits them best. The On-The-Go mobile model provides Franchise Owners with a mobile studio, which can move around to deliver classes, whereas the Studio model gives them the chance to own a physical building where the classes take place.

Two Different Business Models, One Common Goal

Our Studio model is a physical, brick-and-mortar location, where children can attend art classes and art-themed birthday parties can be held. The On-The-Go model is a completely different, mobile option, which gives the Franchise Owner the flexibility to move around the area and deliver lessons in as many locations as they choose. There is no limit to the locations in which classes can be held, with the Franchise Owners having the freedom to approach local schools, community centers, and organizations to discuss the possibility of starting a class. This gives people a great opportunity to get involved in the local community in a way they perhaps wouldn’t have been able to previously, by providing a much-needed service which is educational as well as great fun!

Unlike some franchise opportunities, Kidcreate is very much a community-focused franchise. Due to the decline in recent years of art education in schools, along with budget cuts and as a result, a lack of resources, there is a huge demand for children’s art education. Art classes are so enjoyable for children, and if they are not getting to experience the joy of creative art at school, classes with Kidcreate really are meeting an unmet need in children’s education. With a Kidcreate On-The-Go model, you can move around the community, reaching children in every area, especially important in areas where families may not otherwise have access to creative activities, or may not have the means to travel to the physical studio. Extracurricular art classes can contribute enormously to children’s supplemental art education, enhancing children’s creativity and also helping to improve their performance in other academic areas such as Math and Science. Indeed research indicates that exposure to creative subjects such as the arts can lead to more rounded development, including advanced cognitive skills and school readiness. Additionally, since so many schools are losing funding for art education, Kidcreate’s On-The-Go program provides local school administrators and teachers with the ability to continue to offer some form of art education to students despite no longer having the necessary budget for a dedicated art teacher or studio facility.

Start Building Your Kidcreate Empire…No Building Required!

Through our On-The-Go program, Franchise Owners can connect and work together with local schools and preschools, and also offer classes in local community centers, or hold in-home birthday parties. Being mobile and able to move around connecting with the local community also provides Franchise Owners with a fantastic marketing channel, as reputation and word of mouth is an ideal way to attract new customers. Once a child has attended a Kidcreate program, many of them sign up again season after season, and many parents will think of Kidcreate when planning a birthday party. A further benefit of the On-The-Go model is that several locations can be operating simultaneously. A class usually contains around 12 children, but of course, this increases enormously if 3 or 4 or more classes are also running in the community at the same time in different locations. The agreement with the venue varies depending on the type of establishment- for example, some schools or community centers may simply offer room rental, whereas others may take a percentage of the registration.

Quality Franchise Support From Day One

Investing in a new franchise may seem like a daunting prospect to those who are new to the idea of franchising; however, Kidcreate makes this transition easy by offering full support throughout the process. To begin, an initial training program is offered to new Franchise Owners, which includes a 100-hour combination of self-study, classroom training, and on-the-job instruction. Guidance on how to build partnerships, and advice on how to grow a customer base are further areas in which you will receive support, as well as marketing and promotions assistance.

At Kidcreate we equip our Franchise Owners with the tools to learn how to effectively network with local child-themed businesses and schools. The On-The-Go model enables our Franchise Owners to make real connections within the community, not just with the children they work with, but with the parents, educators, and fellow business owners in the area. This is an opportunity to really get involved and give back to your community and the future generations, while making a healthy profit and building a successful business at the same time!

We understand that when making the leap to starting your own business, there are so many factors to consider, and franchising is just one of the available options. Having carried out due diligence our Franchise Owners discover that opportunities that combine strong financial gain with a significant contribution to the local community are few and far between. Our Franchise Owners are so excited and passionate about what they do, and this has a huge impact on the success of their business. In the words of one of our Franchise Owners, “Creativity is the job skill of the future and something we need to help kids get more of. I’m so proud to build a successful business around it.”

With the On-The-Go model, your new business could be up and running in as little as 60 days, and the investment for the On-The-Go mobile franchise model starts at just $64,520. Please visit our franchise website for more information.

Justin and Cheyenne are excellent reminders that Kidcreate is a franchise opportunity available to people from all backgrounds and professions. Before investing in a Kidcreate art studio franchise, Justin and Cheyenne were both members of the United States Air Force Reserve!

How Justin and Cheyenne Found Our Art Studio Franchise

As parents of two young children, the Carrolls were looking for a career change that would allow them to spend more time at home with their family. After many years on active duty with the United States Air Force Reserve, they decided to investigate opening their own business. The opportunity to be their own boss and and work for themselves was very appealing to them, as was the possibility of being able to create their own flexible work schedule and bring balance to their lives. 

Although they were not necessarily looking for franchise opportunities, they came across an advertisement for the franchise opportunity at Kidcreate while searching for businesses for sale and felt that it was the right fit for their situation. Cheyenne has always been involved in working with children, with her first job being in after-school child care. Working with children has always been a passion for her- particularly doing art projects, which is something she enjoys doing at home with her own kids. The Carrolls are looking forward to having the ability to invest in their children’s future and build a family legacy as business owners, as well as helping children in the community find their passion for art and creativity.

Should I Open My Own Art Studio or Invest in an Art Franchise?

Should I Open My Own Art Studio or Invest in an Art Franchise?

SHOULD I OPEN MY OWN ART STUDIO OR INVEST IN AN ART FRANCHISE?

The last 18 months have seen an unprecedented number of employees quitting their jobs, with the main driving factor being the way they were treated by their employers during the global pandemic. This is leading to a significant shift in people’s attitudes towards work, forcing disillusioned staff to re-evaluate their priorities and with many finally having the push they needed to leave behind something which was making them unhappy, and pursue something which they feel truly passionate about. 

Does starting your own business and being your own boss appeal to you? Maybe you are an aspiring or established artist, a teacher, an entrepreneur, or simply a creative person looking for a new challenge. If so, being the owner and operator of your own art studio would be an exciting new adventure. But the big question looms, where to begin? Of course, with every new business, there are a great number of things to consider, not least the costs involved, the location, the time and effort required, and your intended audience.

When pondering the first steps of your new adventure, there are two main factors to take into consideration. Should you open an independent art studio, or instead go down the road of investing in an existing franchise? This article will outline the pros and cons of both these options and help you make a decision about which is best for you.

art franchise

An independent art studio is for the purposes of either creating or selling art, and can involve any number of art, such as painting, sculpting, woodwork or ceramics. For a budding artist or those with a link to artwork and crafts, there are clear benefits to opening an independent studio. To begin, you have the luxury of designing something from scratch, enabling you to create your studio to your exact specifications and interests. Your passion and creativity will flow throughout the space you create, and you will feel valued and enthused by engaging with other artists and selling your work to interested parties. Most importantly, you are following your dream, which through sheer hard work will provide you with an enormous sense of achievement.

However, starting a business from scratch comes with its share of downsides, and an independent art studio is no different. A huge amount of research and planning must be done before the idea begins to take shape, such as conducting market research on similar organizations, gauging interest in the local area, assessing the competition, finding a suitable location, deciding on your preferred layout, deciding what equipment you will need and what it will cost, and considering the upsides of renting vs buying. And this is to name but a few! It is not unreasonable to expect many months of planning to really decide on what you are looking for.

Once the groundwork has been laid, a new business will need a solid business plan, financial backing, expert advice, a marketing strategy and/or professional website creation, and most likely a business license. This is of course all doable, and there are many thriving art studios in existence, but to ensure the best possible chance of success, you must be 100% committed to the project and have the self-drive and relentless work ethic to push yourself to achieve your goal.

The second option worth considering is to be your own boss by investing in an existing art franchise. By embarking on a franchise, you will immediately be removing a huge amount of the stress involved with starting a business from scratch, simply because the business already exists, with a support team and infrastructure in place. You have a ready-made team of experts to help you every step of the way, from the initial purchase and set-up, right through to opening and actually running the business.

Arts and Craft Franchising

Putting the ‘ART’ into ‘SMART Investment!’

A great example of this is becoming a Franchise Owner at Kidcreate Studio. Specializing in children’s art classes, camps and art-themed birthday parties, Kidcreate Studio is an art studio just for kids. Kidcreate fulfil a huge unmet need in communities for children to be creative, learn art concepts, and experiment with many different art materials, something which is severely lacking in school curriculums today. Creativity is often quoted as the necessary skill of the future, and an organization such as Kidcreate gives children the tools to unlock this creativity, providing them with an essential part of their development and childhood education.

The clear incentive for investing in an art franchise such as Kidcreate is that you will be using your talent and enthusiasm for your craft to help and enrich the lives of children. Kidcreate Franchise Owners enjoy all the benefits of running their own business and being their own boss, bringing not only a significant financial return but also huge emotional returns on the initial investment.

At Kidcreate we understand that starting a new business is daunting and extremely hard work, which is why being a Kidcreate Franchise Owner brings with it an entire support team. This includes advice from a Real Estate Director to find the best studio location and negotiate and sign a lease agreement, access to your own Marketing Director to provide assistance with promoting your business, 100 hours of initial training to prepare you for opening your studio doors, and refresher training courses once your studio is open.

Last but not least, a huge benefit of being a Kidcreate Franchise Owner is that you can be up and running in as little as 60 days. Yes, you read that correctly, 60 days! No need to spend months researching and planning, the Kidcreate team can guide you through this process, not only removing a huge amount of stress from the start-up process of a new business but also cutting the prep time from many months to just 60 days. There are two choices of models for new Franchise Owners, allowing new Owners to choose between a mobile studio or a brick-and-mortar studio, or both! The initial investment for the On-The-Go mobile franchise model starts at just $64,520, and of course, once you have established your first studio as a Franchise Owner, there is nothing to stop you from expanding your empire and opening multiple Kidcreate Studio art franchise locations.

Invest in Your Future: Own a Kidcreate Studio Art Franchise

There are very few downsides to investing in an art franchise, although it is important to remember that despite all the support and assistance you will receive, it will by no means be a walk in the park. You will still need the initial investment, and of course, businesses do not succeed by themselves. Investing in an art franchise will still require the dedication and hard work that any business does. You will need to bring your entrepreneurial spirit and your desire to succeed, not forgetting your passion for both art and the education of children.

Kidcreate Studio makes it so much easier for you to become a Franchise Owner than those trying to open an independent art studio business, so what are you waiting for? Visit our art franchise website today for more info.
