“A child is an uncut diamond,” said author Austin O’Malley. And we, as parents, do everything we can to help them shine.
We always are on the lookout for ways to entertain, encourage, and help our kids. Child-related franchises expand our options.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau there are approximately 74 million children about ¼ of the national population – in the country under age 18. That number is projected to increase to approximately 80.3 million by 2030.
Spending on children is also rising, writes franchisedirect.com. People are having children later in life, and in most cases, older parents are more financially stable with additional money to spend on their children’s development.
On the other end of the age spectrum, people are living longer, which means grandparents have more years to indulge their grandkids.
Child-related franchises are a no-brainer, and run the gamut from retail and resale (clothing and toys), tutoring (both in-home and in centers), day care and childcare, STEM / STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) enrichment programs, cooking and music franchises and there’s even one that teaches kids how to become a YouTube sensation.
There are swimming schools, sports franchises, leadership academies, haircare franchises, fun centers and arcades, children’s photographers and so much more.
Here are four growing franchises currently making a name for themselves.
This Pittsburgh-based franchise is a low cost, home-based mobile business that teaches the principles of robotics and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) through classes, camps, parties and other events. The flexible model allows franchisees to grow the business based on their personal goals. It’s one of the fastest growing kids’ franchises in the country and might be the right opportunity for you.
As a global leader in science enrichment programs, Nutty Scientists® promotes STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) learning, and makes that learning fun for kids. The franchise teaches science using entertainment and other innovative ways to help children retain valuable, educational information.
