Code Ninjas Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2024


Code Ninjas? is the world's largest and fastest-growing kids coding franchise, with hundreds of locations in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

At our centers, kids learn to code while building their own video games. They gain problem solving, critical thinking, and STEM skills in a fun, safe, and inspiring environment.

Coding has been called "the literacy of the 21st century" for good reason. Just like math, science, and literature, coding is a key aspect of understanding our technologically-advanced world. There's a huge need for a generation that not only understands technology, but how it works.

Technology is advancing at an incredible rate, and we're just getting started. Code Ninjas believes that there's never been a more exciting time to advance our culture - starting with our youngest ones. Every kid deserves the chance to unlock their innate, unlimited capacity to learn. Whether or not they pursue coding as a career, we want to provide kids with skills that will help them pursue their dreams.

If you're doing what you love, work doesn't feel like work. That's why positivity and fun is baked into every aspect of what we do at Code Ninjas. Our proprietary curriculum teaches kids to code by building videos games they love, including popular favorites like Roblox? and Minecraft?. Kids aren't aware they're learning - just having fun!

We pride ourselves in partnering with entrepreneurs to boost STEM education in communities across the country through our state-of-the-art learning centers. For our franchise owners, Code Ninjas offers the invaluable opportunity of a meaningful career path that positively impacts and strengthens their communities.

When evaluating a franchise opportunity, reading and understanding the current version of their FDD is a necessity. Considering the benefits of franchising, such as established brand recognition and support from the franchisor, it's important to also take into account franchise fees and franchising royalty fees. Since most franchisors are privately owned companies, the current versions of their FDDs are typically not available unless requested directly from them.
