Children's Franchises Industry Description


Children’s franchises include businesses designed towards educating, exercising and entertaining children, often at the same time. With kids making up a large portion of the economy, children’s franchises will always be in demand.

What sorts of franchises cater to kids?

The most popular children’s franchises include tutoring, photography, and after-school programs. There are also franchises that specialize in supplemental education, dance, art, science and sports.

Do I need to have experience with children?

No! You don’t need any specialized skills in education, art, dance or math to become a children’s franchise owner, but it helps to have a love of kids. In addition, many of these franchises can be low-cost, meaning a lower overhead for you.

Is this industry on the rise?

Absolutely! Kids are the future, literally—children are expected to make up a quarter of the U.S. in 2020. Even in a difficult economy, parents are always willing to put in a disproportionately high percentage of their funds toward their children.

Franchising is key to this movement, offering franchises that focus on child development, education and entertainment for all age groups.
