Children’s Art Studio to “Paint the States” with New Franchise Opportunity

Minneapolis-Based Kidcreate Studio Pursues National Expansion through Passionate Entrepreneurs

August 19, 2016 // // EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. – In an effort to keep the creativity flowing after the bell rings, Kidcreate Studio, a franchise concept focused on children’s art enrichment classes, camps and birthday parties, announced today their plans to “paint the states” through the launch of its franchise opportunity. 

Since its founding in 2008 by Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Lara Olson, Kidcreate Studio has used the power of art to positively influence the lives of children ages 18 months through 12 years. Kidcreate Studios are home to giggles, creativity, confidence, discovery and fun, and are designed to serve as enrichment programs that pick up where public education has become more limited. The concept, which currently has two corporate locations in Eden Prairie and Woodbury, Minnesota, is focused around four key-offerings; in-studio and on-the-go art classes, camps and art-themed birthday parties.

The brand has seen robust sales and both locations have built-up a solid base of returning customers. With the recent launch of its franchise opportunity, Kidcreate Studio gives passionate entrepreneurs across the country an investment opportunity that truly makes a difference in the lives of children. With aggressive yet strategic development plans, the brand has set a goal of reaching 100+ franchise locations through careful and conservative growth with the right partners.

“At Kidcreate Studio, we are searching for candidates who have a knack for identifying new ways to grow their business, have the entrepreneurial drive to do so and are serious about succeeding,” says Olson. “Our concept is not only the perfect “second act” career as the franchise opportunity appeals to women looking to get back into the workforce after raising children, but we have something to offer that our competitors do not - brick and mortar locations and a flexible ‘semi-absentee’ owner structure.”

Kidcreate Studio was founded out of a need to provide children with more art education - something that Olson discovered was lacking in the public education sector after she realized that her son Jake was receiving less than one hour of art at school per week. After watching her son Jake struggle in traditional subjects such as math and science, but excel in art, Olson knew her destiny was to provide an art enrichment program to compliment what Jake was receiving at school - thus Kidcreate Studio was born.

“My passion for entrepreneurship has stemmed from the love for my son and my personal drive to expose him to the world of creativity and self-expression. I am thrilled to announce our franchise expansion plans which will help us provide an environment filled with ingenuity and inspiration to kids across the nation,” added Olson.

With a low initial investment of $54,000-$120,000 and multiple revenue streams including art parties, on-the-go classes, retail sales and studio classes, the Kidcreate Studio franchise opportunity is extremely appealing. The brand has a predesigned system and an extensive curriculum library while offering a seamless integration of multiple technology-based systems and customized class tracking capabilities. Potential franchisees will also benefit from the support provided by mature franchise executives who serve as resources to the Kidcreate Studio system. Kidcreate Studio is looking to franchise with positive, outgoing and business savvy operators in markets across the U.S. Future locations would mirror Kidcreate Studio's original layout, which is roughly 1,300 square-feet, and will be situated in high-traffic areas surrounded by coffee shops, restaurants, convenient shops, grocery stores, and bookstores. 

“Kidcreate Studio has unlimited growth potential as we can operate in all types of locations where kids are present,” said Olson. “This concept is so special to me and I am so excited to expand our Kidcreate Studio family to entrepreneurs who not only wants to make a good living, but make a living of doing good.”
