At Kidcreate, It Is Hot!

At Kidcreate, It Is Hot!

As we have completed our unofficial first month of Summer at Kidcreate, we are hot! We are in demand; our studios are full for Summer camps, and we are feeling the Love a Kidcreate Business has to offer.

Every single Kidcreate Studio business has experienced a resurgence in demand from local Kidcreators wanting what our business has to offer. We are still delivering on Birthday party wishes, offering activities all over the communities we operate in and are experiencing never before demand for our awesome Studio and Community Summer Camps.

Childhood Development

Our average Franchise Studio growth over last year through June of 2022 has been phenomenal.

We have grown by nearly 71% for our same store growth through June 30, compared to the same time frame last year. We attribute this to the amazing work of our Franchise Partners who have spent the last two years improving operations, learning new activities and lessons, sharpening their social media skills and content, and training the best instructors around for their businesses. All of that is paying off with tremendous results.

Many of our franchise partners are running newer businesses and are re-establishing their Launch/Rapid growth phase now that we are living with the effects of the last two years. But now, they are more prepared and ready to take advantage of all the demand that we are experiencing all over the country.

And it is not just the newly launched studios that are experiencing phenomenal growth this year. Our two original studios in Minnesota are what we refer to as our mature established studios.  While they are always busy and steady with repeat customers, this year they are experiencing tremendous revenue growth on par with our franchise system. Together our two Minnesota corporate locations are experiencing an average growth of 86% increase Year to date through June 30 compared to the same time frame last year!

We are over the moon with the results for our entire system….so over the moon that we may create a new “Over the Moon” art lesson for our Kidcreators.

Adding Art Enrichment to the Music and BBQ in Kansas City, MO!

Adding Art Enrichment to the Music and BBQ in Kansas City, MO!

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 Kansas City, MO!

We are pleased to introduce our newest Franchise Owner, Heather White, who is about to open her first Kansas City area art studio franchise. Heather 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, Heather earned her experience and knowledge in Sales, Management and Leadership as a Realtor in multiple cities.

How Heather Found Our Art Studio Franchise

As a parent of four young children, Heather 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 something different, long lasting and creative, just like her personality. But she wanted to do it on her own terms.  The opportunity to open a Kidcreate Studio business was extremely appealing to Heather once she saw how creative, bright and fun the Kidcreate model appeared to her. 

Kidcreate showed up in Heather’s social media feeds and she was hooked. She originally considered opening a studio in her Idaho town because she could not find any similar business of its kind in her city. But, she had an urge for her and her husband to get their kids back to Missouri and did just that. After getting settled in her new home, Heather quickly made the decision to launch her Kidcreate Studio business in her neighborhood in Kansas City.  

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 Heather 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 Heather became aware  of and felt that an extracurricular activity focusing on art was a sound investment, both financially and emotionally. And doing all the research in her new community in Kansas City just reinforced her resolve as Kidcreate enrichments programs are so strong and such an integral part of the communities we operate in. Heather decided that KC (Kansas City) needs KC (Kidcreate)! 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 Heather.

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. Heather thoroughly enjoyed her Discovery Day and appreciated seeing how it all worked. Heather 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 Heather 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.

While attending the Kidcreate Discovery Day, everyone is 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. Heather 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. Kidcreate seeks out very driven and goal-oriented individuals to open Kidcreate businesses, both our Mobile On the Go businesses as well as our 2 in 1 Studio businesses which include having physical studios.  The thing Kidcreate is most looking forward to is helping onboard and training Heather so she can quickly get her Mobile On the Go business up and running soon while she carefully selects just the right studio in her neighborhood to open her Studio business.  We wish Heather every success with her new Kidcreate Studio business and are looking forward to hearing her stories!

The investment for the On-The-Go mobile franchise model with Kidcreate starts at just $64,520. Total investment ranges may vary based on the Kidcreate business model you invest in. Please visit our franchise website for more information.

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*.

*Numbers obtained from our 2020 FDD.

When you look at the numbers that camps are earning, it’s clear that camps are a booming business. And this boom is expected to continue as we have moved into the post- COVID world.
