Mad Science® Offering 25 Exclusive New Franchise Territories
Science Enrichment Provider Emphasizes Last Franchise Offerings in America
May 28, 2021 // Franchising.com // Montreal - Mad Science® is riding the tide of new, fresh interest from parents looking for tools and programming that enrich their kids’ lives. Since the start of the pandemic, the need for interactive and educational extracurriculars for children has skyrocketed.
“STEM is becoming more and more important as an educational focus, and we are on a mission to help prepare the next generation with the skills to embark on their future careers,” said President Shafik Mina. “We want to be able to give children a hands-on learning experience with science that they may be missing out on during their regular school instruction.”
Mad Science® was founded in1985 in Montreal, Canada by two brothers, Ariel and Ron Shlien. At the age of 12, Ariel used three hundred dollars he had saved working a paper route to purchase a helium-neon laser and started offering laser light shows to local DJs. Soon after, the teacher of a science and technology course at a local Montreal YMCA brought in the brothers and their laser to offer his students a great grand finale to his course. The brothers’ hobby of conducting spectacular science experiments to the amazement of the children in their neighborhood grew into a thriving business. In 1995, Mad Science began franchising with offices in Toronto and Miami. By 2000, the Mad Science Group counted 86 locations.
With cutting-edge programs with a focus on STEM, they are in the perfect position to exceed and continue being the premier service provider in this expanding segment.
“As the world starts to reopen, we are committed to providing the best programming for after-school programs, birthday parties, camps, and more,” said Mina. “We love that parents, children, and our franchisees see that Mad Science is making a difference and is helping create the knowledge and passion for science that we all have.”
