About Us

A staggering 50% of current jobs will be replaced with technology by 2025; however, the public education system does not have the programs in place to adequately prepare students for emerging careers in tech-related fields. That’s why Skill Samurai is the world’s first franchise focused on career-readiness education! We provide a clear solution to this growing problem by offering tech education to students ages 7-18 that allows them to not only build interest and excitement, but requisite skills for jobs that exist today, and for those that will be in demand in the future. We are a STEM.org accredited program and believe in the mantra; Coding to Learn, not Learning to Code.

Make an Impact While Being Profitable

— Future FocusedOur Owners are actively involved in their communities, becoming a well-known presence as they network and partner with various community organizations and outreach groups. Internationally, Skill Samurai sponsors schools so that underserved youth can get their basic education, including literacy, numeracy, technological and vocational skills. Prepare students for tomorrow’s workplace, while building your own bright financial future!

Effortless StaffingSkill Samurai is extremely easy to operate with very few staff members. We implement a self-directed curriculum, a ratio of 1 teacher to 10 students is sufficient.

  • Successful, proven model in place to hire university and college computer science students as teachers and coaches
  • Locations can be operated with 1-3 part-time employees. (Other STEM concepts require around 25)
  • No prior experience is required, as we provide an extensive training program with a STEM Certification for all new Owners
  • Our classes are registration-based to save the overhead of staffing instructors
  • Owners can comfortably run as Owner-Operator or Semi-Absentee depending on preference and choose a mobile business, brick and mortar, or a combination of the two! Flexibility at its finest.

Predictable Revenue StreamsSkill Samurai is a membership model, which means our Franchise Owners earn predictable, recurring revenue. The combination of our brick & mortar locations and our on-the-go partnerships allows us to attract more clients, resulting in natural cross-marketing and repeat business. We offer a wide variety of programs that create predictable revenues including:

  • After School Coding Classes
  • School Holiday Coding Camps
  • Career Readiness Education
  • Kids Coding Birthday parties
  • Signature Coding Program
  • STEM Programs for your School

Support Structure

  • Training: Our training program consists of an initial 40 hours that includes both on-the-job and classroom training to cover recruiting techniques, training and retaining employees, pre-grand opening tasks and activities, software, operations, sales and marketing training, and administrative duties.
  • On-Going Support: We continuously strive to improve the Skill Samurai Learning system, therefore training is continuous and never ends. To ensure that we remain current with industry trends and new curricula, managers and Franchise Owners may be required to participate in refresher training courses each year at a Franchisor designated location.
  • Technology: Our technology easily streamlines owners’ business operations, marketing materials, client acquisition, and scheduling app, along with our center management software.
  • Marketing: As we prepare our students for the workplace demand of the future, we prepare our Owners for a bright financial future, therefore, Owners receive a local landing page, Google local business page, and a Facebook page that we update 5 days a week.
