Kidcreate Studio Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2023


Kidcreate Studio is a growing movement of entrepreneurs who are inspired to bring greater levels of creativity and fun to kids through our award-winning art curriculum. We specialize in children's art classes, camps, and art-themed birthday parties, for kids aged 18 months to 12 years. Classes are packed with fun art activities like pottery, drawing, painting, and of course everyone's favorite "messy time." Through this process, kids learn about art concepts, techniques, math, science and history. 

Due to the events of the 2020 pandemic, we also quickly pivoted our model to include virtual classes and take home art kits. This allowed children to still explore their creativity through art education from the comfort and safety of their homes.


Since "No Child Left Behind Act" was passed, 71% of the nation's school districts in the US have greatly reduced the amount of time spent on art education. Kidcreate Studio is on the front lines of this battle and committed to providing frustrated parents and teachers with a solution to the growing issue of the decline in art education. 


We are different from any other children's art education concept, as we are the only children's art franchise with a beautiful brick and mortar studio and on-the-go community partnerships. Our flexible business model allows Owners to offer just mobile classes or offer both mobile classes and a studio location. The combination allows our Franchise Owners to take advantage of true work/life balance, quick ramp-up time, high profitability and easy scalability, all while they make a difference in their communities!

Where can I see Kidcreate Studio's FDD (Franchise Disclosure Document)?

Buying a Franchise Guide: What is a Franchise Disclosure Document?

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.
