May 16, 2022 // Franchising.com // Huntersville, NC - Skill Samurai, a STEM, coding, and children’s education franchise, announced it is creating a national strategic partnership with HobbyTown, a national franchise specializing in hobby, STEM and educational products.
HobbyTown will provide activity center space for the purpose of hosting Skill Samurai events, classes, and workshops on an ongoing basis. The pilot program will begin at the HobbyTown store in Southfield, MI in June with a nationwide rollout at additional locations thereafter.
“HobbyTown is continually seeking to explore and find new opportunities to enhance the customer experience in our franchise stores,” said HobbyTown President Bob Wilke. “As a company we pride ourselves on offering products that inspire and engage hands and minds to develop new skills while having fun. We are excited to partner with Skill Samurai to provide in-store opportunities for our younger customers to further develop STEM related skills that will prepare them for further education and a future career.”
