Why Franchise with Kidcreate Art Studio?

Kidcreate Studio was started when Founder Lara Olson noticed her son was struggling academically. Inspired by his keen interest in art, she decided to provide him with an environment that would nurture his innate creativity. When she saw the benefits that came as a result, she began to open her business model to communities across the United States so other children could benefit from her art franchise in similar ways.

At Kidcreate Studio, we’re focused on building confidence and inspiring creativity in the incredible children who surround us. Studies show that children involved in creative arts experience long term academic and social benefits—including higher test scores, better grades, consistent school attendance and more frequent social interaction. As funding for art education is in rapid decline, there is a growing demand for creative outlets for children. Kidcreate Studio is able to fill this void with diverse creative opportunities that satisfy a child’s hunger for self-expression.

By providing an important and beneficial service, we have been able to grow nationwide and bring the gift of art to thousands of school children. Our award-winning lineup of lessons were created by industry experts with kids in mind. With the goal of improving children’s lives through the use of art, Kidcreate Studio is the most successful and personally fulfilling art franchise in the industry.

Intersect with Multiple Strong Industries

The Kidcreate Studio franchise sits at the crossroads of three profitable industries: the education and tutoring industry, the summer camp industry, and the birthday party industry. By overlapping with this strong trio of industries, our Franchise Owners are well positioned for success!

Education and Tutoring

Valued at $102.8 billion annually, this is a thriving industry! At Kidcreate Studio, art education is our main focus. As caring parents and teachers will go to great lengths to see their children/students succeed, our art franchise has proven to be recession resilient. All of our programs are intended to help kids succeed and experience healthy growth. Our lessons stimulate the learning process in fun and creative ways and keep them coming back for more.

Birthday Parties

$25 billion in annual revenue is definitely something to celebrate! Kidcreate Studio makes every child’s birthday a memorable one with our birthday party events. Our unique, creative curriculums can easily be adapted to birthday parties or other special events. Parents love that we take care of all the prep work, activities and clean-up, keeping the big day as simple as possible for them.

Summer Camps

Even though every school year eventually comes to an end, it doesn’t mean the fun has to stop! A $2 billion annual industry, summer camps are a great way to offer art education during the school break and give parents a much needed reprieve!

Your Own Art Studio

The standard for most art franchise businesses involves weekly classes that take place in a brick and mortar studio. At our onsite locations, we’re able to encourage creativity in a safe, positive environment. Designed for children aged 18 months to 12 years, our classes include fun activities like painting, pottery, drawing, sculpture, and much more.

A Mobile Studio Option

For those who prefer to start on a smaller scale, our mobile studio model allows Franchise Owners to expand their revenue by bringing the Kidcreate Studio curriculum to customers, wherever they may be! As a model unique to us, this option supplies the owner with everything needed to offer creative art classes to schools, daycares, churches, and other organizations throughout the community. This portable format is an ideal way to enrich any program’s curriculum.

A Fulfilling and Meaningful Career

Salary is the determining factor for many people when making a career choice. After all, we do need money to survive. However, a good salary is often one of the only perks a job offers. While a nice paycheck may be the reason to clock in and clock out, it doesn’t usually lead to deep personal fulfillment. But let’s say you start a career that enables you to brighten the lives of those around you on a daily basis. Let’s say you’re the reason one child’s day at school is a little better, another child’s birthday party is unforgettable, while a third child’s summer will never be forgotten!

Running an art franchise through Kidcreate Studio isn’t just about revenue—the greatest reward comes from knowing you’re making a real difference in the lives of kids near you. You’re helping them grow in confidence and appreciate their individuality. You’re building the kind of cognitive and social skills that are so essential for their development. Wouldn’t that lead to a deeply satisfying career? You could probably get used to that!

If you’re looking for fulfillment, flexibility, passion, and profitability, we invite you to see what Kidcreate Studio can do for you!
