About Tippi Toes 

Since 1999, Tippi Toes has been bringing an award-winning program of dance and creative movement to childcare centers, schools, play groups and various after school programs. 

In 2012, after 3 years of franchising, we landed the prestigious honor of being featured on Shark Tank and were even offered a deal by Mark Cuban! We chose to turn down the deal and focus on growing the business ourselves, but that offer validated that we had a special, one-of-a-kind business model on our hands. 

When you own a Tippi Toes franchise, you can expect a low investment, low overhead, healthy margins, and the ability to spread confidence, positivity, and joy to children in your community. 

But our favorite part? Through our recurring revenue model, you can run your business in under 20 hours per week, letting you spend more time with your family and friends instead of being stuck at a dead-end job!

Why Choose Tippi Toes 

100% Mobile Model: Our franchise does not require a brick-and-mortar-space, meaning we offer a low investment starting at only $67K. By utilizing 100 sq ft of someone else’s brick-and-mortar space (daycares, preschools, churches, etc.), your overhead expenses and staffing needs are also kept low.

Strong Margins: Franchise Owners in our system are currently seeing Average Total Revenue of $242,557* and unheard of margins of 39.6%! For an investment starting at only $67K, and the expectation that most Owners only work 20 hours per week, the ROI potential is impressive.  

Predictable, Recurring Revenue: Our monthly membership business model means recurring revenue is standard, and growing your franchise is predictable. You simply need to lean on our proven practices that encourage re-enrollment. 

Impact Your Community: Tippi Toes allows you to affect the lives of children in your community through accessible dance programs. Additionally, college students and young professionals hired to teach classes also walk away impacted.

History

Founder and CEO Sarah Nuse began Tippi Toes in 1999 as a way to make a little extra cash. 

The idea exploded when she realized the gap in the market for readily available extracurricular children's programs. By offering Tippi Toes in local and convenient spaces for most parents, the business took off and growth has ceased to slow down. In fact, Tippi Toes is now a nationally recognized company with franchises across the United States and China.

Sarah has successfully run Tippi Toes for over 24 years now, and during that time, has become a sought-after speaker and author of Destined for Greatness: Living an inspired life, from head to Tippi Toes!
