This is a well-established science educational franchise that provides fun interactive science programs taught in school to Pre-K - Grade 8. This is one of the fastest growing segments in the educational franchise market due to the rise in popularity of teaching STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) to children. This is a scale-able business and can be managed as an absentee owner (current ownership), as a single owner/educator, or as a part-time owner managing a multi-teacher business. The owner purchased this franchise in 2003 and has a solid list of repeat schools in Chicago, Northern Cook county, Dupage and Will counties, with over 90% client retention year over year. The owner purchased additional territories throughout the years, expanding the base. A full-time manager schedules all workshops, purchases materials, conducts marketing campaigns, hires, trains and coordinates the staff runs the business. Multiple part-time educators (4) travel to the schools to teach 90-minute science programs. This franchise is well known to teachers and decision makers who carve out funding from their budgets for these special event programs. The programs run adjunct to the school’s primary science curriculum's, or as an introduction to specific topics. The franchisor provides 100 different science programs and updates the curriculum's annually. This is a wonderful opportunity for a person who wants to step into an established turnkey franchise with solid market penetration. Tremendous growth opportunities exist for a new owner to expand marketing efforts to Preschools, where parents increasingly want their young children to be inspired by science and math and by further expansion into public schools, birthday parties, summer camps.
