Kidcreate Studio

Why stay trapped in the 9-5 corporate life when you have the opportunity to make your mark as a Kidcreate Studio owner? Now’s your chance to open a business that gives back to the children in your community and puts you on the road to entrepreneurship.

Due to surging demand for a flexible, mobile business model in response to COVID-19 concerns, Kidcreate now offers an all-new On-The-Go mobile franchise option. Starting at under $65K, this highly-scalable model is designed to meet the needs of your community as well as support each investor’s unique business and lifestyle goals.

Kidcreate Studio is the PERFECT franchise opportunity for investors looking to own a business in the lucrative, emotionally-rewarding kids’ education industry. Owning a Kidcreate Studio allows you to:

  • Invest in an innovative art concept which stands out as a truly unique offering in the recession-resilient Kids' Education space. 
  • Find the flexible schedule and career fulfillment in the fun, creative work environment you’ve always wanted while positioning yourself for high potential returns. 
  • Start your own business without spending your life savings. Low investment starts at under $65K!
  • Bring supplemental art education back to schools- our On-The-Go model serves quality art instruction to children at the source, with no need for a dedicated studio facility. 
  • Enrich children’s lives through art and make a comfortable living bringing imagination, creativity, and fun to their corner of the world. 

With two distinct yet complementary models to bolster our Franchise Owners’ potential for financial gain- our Studio classes and our On-The-Go partnerships, Kidcreate Studio is the ideal opportunity for investors who want to make a difference while growing a successful, thriving business.

Why Choose Us?

Besides a high potential for profitability and the freedom to create your own flexible schedule, owning a Kidcreate Studio can help you:

  • Own a Business...Not the Problems - Avoid the numerous hassles that come with launching an independent business by investing in a proven, nationally-recognized franchise model. Our Corporate support team makes sure you don’t have to go it alone!
  • Profit with your Community - Do something positive and fun that brings you joy every day. Surrounding yourself with kids’ smiling faces brings a kind of career fulfillment that a corporate desk job just can’t match.
  • Take Charge of Your Destiny - Put yourself at the helm and choose the next chapter in your career. Whether you’ve recently had to seek out new opportunities or you just feel it’s time for a change, this may be the first step toward creating a future you’ve always imagined.
  • Build a Legacy - Now’s your chance to establish a business that thrives in your community for generations. As a business owner, you’re giving your children, and their children, the opportunity to make Kidcreate Studio part of your family’s heritage. 

Ideal Candidate
We're looking for a certain kind of person to own a Kidcreate Studio. Are you a good fit? 

  • Do you have a drive for success and business experience, but want something more fulfilling than the corporate grind?
  • Does art matter to you? Do you want it to matter to the next generation too?
  • Are you good at networking and can help make important connections within your community?
  • Are you passionate about making a difference? Even if you have little (or no) experience in art education, you can still enrich kids’ lives as a Kidcreate Studio Franchise Owner!
  • Are you looking for a way to take control of your financial future by investing in yourself?

Kidcreate Studio began as one mother's dream for her son. 

As a young elementary school student, Lara Olson's son, Jake, found more joy in a single half-hour of art class each week than he did in the rest of the school week put together! 

Lara did some research and learned that not only had many K-12 schools across America made major budget cuts resulting in reduced funding for art education, but that some schools had done away with art instruction altogether. Seeing an unmet need for art education in the lives of kids in her community, she decided to go ahead and open the first Kidcreate Studio in Eden Prairie, MN, in 2007.

After opening a second profitable location, Lara began franchising the Kidcreate Studio concept in 2016.

Today, Kidcreate Studio has 18 franchise locations open with 30 more in development! We’re looking for like-minded partners to help us reach our goal of bringing art to kids in every community through innovative engaging classes, camps, birthday parties, and more!
