About

Young Chefs Academy Has a Great Recipe for Success.

If so, take a look at realizing your own dream of small-business ownership and financial independence with a Young Chefs Academy franchise and build a fun business that gives kids lifelong cooking skills.

Reasons to own a Young Chefs Academy franchise

Life lessons - Cooking is a lifelong skill that heavily affects how and what we eat, and kids who master the basics early in life are well-positioned to make healthy choices about nutrition and meal prep throughout childhood and beyond.

Enrichment is important - Young Chefs Academy provides the opportunity for kids to learn hands-on cooking skills, as well as how to collaborate and work as a team should they pursue a career in the culinary arts as a chef, restaurant owner or even dietician.

Cooking is a sport - Not all kids are athletically inclined, but they love watching kids’ cooking competitions on TV and YouTube. Young Chefs Academy gives them an arena of their own while also helping them build valuable skills.

Growing sector - As schools cut back on music and arts programs, Young Chefs Academy steps in and fills a vital niche for creativity and fun! 37% of families say they plan to spend more than $1,000 per child on school and after-school activities. (MarketWatch.com)

A scalable business - Young Chefs Academy is a scalable, easy-to-operate business that meets kids where they are by offering several skill levels to carry students from kindergarten through high school.

National profile - Many Young Chefs Academy graduates have gone on to compete on such major kids-oriented cooking challenges as MasterChef Junior and Chopped Junior, which has given the business a very high profile throughout the country. That has spurred interest and growth in all the markets we serve, as well as a demand for Young

Potential for high profit margins - Getting into a Young Chefs Academy franchise is easy, thanks to our affordable investment costs. What’s more, it ’s a business with a high potential profit margin: operating costs are low, and there’s ample opportunity to scale up by adding locations to serve your growing client base.

Multiple revenue streams - The Young Chefs Academy franchise model was built around a membership platform, where parents enroll their child in a series of classes. Depending on the child’s age, he or she can progress from kindergarten all the way through high school. Other revenue opportunities include: camps, workshops, special events, birthday parties and adult workshops.

Training and Support

Young Chefs Academy owners receive ongoing support for all aspects of the business thanks to a corporate team dedicated to helping them achieve success.
