"We have owned the Nutty Scientists® franchise in Northern Kentucky since 2013. Buying a Nutty Scientists® franchise was a tough decision for us since we do not have any educational or business experience in our professional background but this is a decision we would make again. Nutty Scientists® makes it easy to run and we have found it is so rewarding. The response from the community, kids, parents and educators really gives both of us an amazing feeling of accomplishment and pride. Every day we get to educate and entertain kids with fun experiments and Nutty lessons that they love." -Scott and Mistie Wisniewski, Owners, Nutty Scientists® of Northern Kentucky
