We are very excited to welcome Francesca Karas back to the Kidcreate Studio Team! Francesca previously worked with Kidcreate as a Lead Teacher, Key Holder and Class Booking Specialist at our studio in Eden Prairie, MN. She will put all of her past Kidcreate experience to work in her new role as a Franchise Support Specialist.

 As a Franchise Support Specialist, Francesca will be working one-on-one with our franchisees assisting them throughout their launch and training programs and beyond. She will also oversee onsite training and help franchisees with mobile class booking.

 I’m very excited to be working with Fran again. I’ve wanted her to join our corporate team for some time now. I’m so pleased we could make that happen.

 A Little About the Kidcreate Studio Franchise

KCS education franchise Founder Lara OlsonKidcreate Studio is an art studio just for kids, founded in 2007. Kidcreate provides art classes, camps, and birthday parties for children ages 18 months through 12 years at their studios and off-site with local educational partners through their On-The-Go Studio program.

Kidcreate Studio started as a result of one mother’s frustrations about the limited art exposure in the curriculum for her young child. Founder Lara Olson’s son Jake was often frustrated by other subjects but lit up like a lightbulb every time he was in art.

Lara knew the value of art to build self-esteem in learners and looked for a place to provide that for her son, but couldn’t find anything designed for young children in her area…so she decided to create one herself. Thus, Kidcreate Studio was born! 

Now, Kidcreate Studio is blossoming into one of the major players in the education franchise space. Kidcreate Studio specializes in children’s art classes, camps, and art-themed birthday parties. It is an art studio designed just for kids! Kidcreate Studio Franchise Owners enjoy running a business that brings significant financial and emotional return-on-investment.
