Leading S.T.E.M. Education Franchise Ranked No. 3 in Top New Franchises by Entrepreneur

Engineering For Kids Jumps Seven Spots from 2015 Solidifying Its Strength in Franchising

April 14, 2016 // Franchising.com // Fredericksburg, Va. – As engineering careers continue to rise as some of the fastest growing and highest demand careers available in the world today, Virginia-based Engineering For Kids (EFK), a leading supplemental education business designed to provide S.T.E.M. education and inspire students ages 4-14 by offering hands-on, discipline specific engineering activities, proved its strength for meeting demand in the marketplace. Just recently, the company landed an impressive ranking in Entrepreneur’s annual Top New Franchises list, coming in at No. 3 for 2016, up seven spots from 2015. 

The exclusive Top New Franchises list is known for highlighting some of the newest stars that began franchising since 2010, and each year Entrepreneur pulls from submissions for its Franchise 500® ranking.  Companies are ranked based on Entrepreneur’s objective and quantifiable criteria, including system size, growth rate and financial strength and stability. EFK’s recognition reinforces its strong system and relevance in a competitive franchise landscape.

“This ranking continues to prove hard work pays off,” says Dori Roberts, founder of EFK. “Our team is comprised of extraordinary people who have made such an honor possible, and it’s the mission behind EFK that keeps us all going - to see the youth of the future thrive as they change the landscape of engineering and science-related fields.”

EFK began franchising in 2011 and since then has grown to a multi-million dollar company with more than 145 locations worldwide, with plans to open 25 franchises each year, in the United States. The company has been crushing its development goals and recently signed a 70-unit deal in China. There is no sign of slowing down, and the demand for STEM education at a young age serves as a testament.

EFK offers a proprietary curriculum that is extremely diverse with many opportunities to learn S.T.E.M. through content and technology based programs. Some examples of content-based programs include aerospace, mechanical, environmental, civil and chemical engineering. Technology-based programs include robotics, electronic game design, software and hardware engineering. With international success in 21 countries, representing more than 250,000 students, EFK is bringing a plethora of knowledge and experience to youth around the globe.
