Why A MakerKids Franchise?

1. Strong International Brand
MakerKids is the largest and most established makerspace franchise concept. Our passionate instructors and ever-evolving curriculum keep us in the headlines and top of mind with our devoted base of MakerKids fans across the world.

2. Robust Support
We have experts to offer guidance in the areas of site selection, training, marketing, and consulting. Throughout the opening process and beyond, we are here to help. Plus, you can tap into our amazing network

3. A Growing Industry
The extra-curricular industry has exploded in popularity as people seek a more personalized and enriched learning experience. MakerKids provides the inspiration and community to motivate clients to keep coming back. The education service industry is one of the fastest growing segments in the franchise market due to the rise in popularity of parents who want to enrich their children’s STEM learning. Our cutting edge programs with a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and high-tech making caters to this demand. MakerKids is the #1 service provider in this unique niche market.

4. A Fulfilling Career
Lead a purposeful, rewarding life by helping others create, achieve and celebrate their goals.

5. Multiple Revenue Streams
Between camps, weekly programs, parties and a growing demand for offsite programs, you have multiple revenue streams available to you as an owner.

6. Be Your Own Boss And Have A Balanced Lifestyle
Take control of your own success and have a ton of fun while you’re at it. Besides, where else can you wear a t-shirt and shorts to work? MakerKids provides the serious entrepreneur an easy, low cost way to gain entry into the children’s learning industry which is poised for serious growth.

7. Amazing Community
MakerKids staff, participants and parents are awesome – and it feels great to have a place where all three groups can feel at home and meet each other.

8. Awesome Space
One of the nicest things about owning your own MakerKids location? An awesome space to work out of!

9. We’ve Figured Things Out For You
We know how to do this. We started the first and largest makerspace for kids in the world, and have been running successfully for 6 years. We’ve figured this out while many other people’s attempts have failed and closed down.

10. Get In On The Ground Floor
This is an opportunity to get in at the ground floor of an exciting opportunity. As an early franchisee, you’ll get way more time from headquarters staff than will our 100th franchisee.

Our Ideal Candidate

The selection of new MakerKids Franchisees is an important decision involving an extensive interview/approval process. For mutual success and satisfaction, we must ensure that each Franchisee possesses the necessary entrepreneurial drive, management skills, financial means and dedication that are required in today’s competitive market. In the MakerKids system, the selection of the best people followed by a comprehensive training program and ongoing operational and marketing support has allowed the chain to continue its expansion and remain as the leading chain of makerspaces for kids.
