A Great Franchise for Busy Parents
Bricks 4 Kidz was founded in 2008 after a Florida business woman, Michelle Cote, was filling out paperwork to become an official school board vendor. Noticing the form's category for Creative Science, Michelle remembered her son's love for LEGO® bricks and decided to bid to lead a Creative Science Lego class.
Michelle was awarded her bid and the Creative Science LEGO® class was a rapid success, with over 35 children singing up for the first after-school LEGO® camp. Now Michelle focuses her business on these after-school classes and has over 20 classes a week in her local area.
Bricks 4 Kidz® programs provide an extraordinary atmosphere where children learn, build and play with LEGO® bricks. Programs are built around our proprietary model plans, designed by engineers and architects with exciting themes such as space, construction, robotics, amusement parks and more. Our specially designed project kits and theme-based models provide the building blocks for the Bricks 4 Kidz® approach to educational play. At Bricks 4 Kidz® we believe that kids learn best through activities that engage their curiosity and creativitiy.
Bricks 4 Kidz® is one of the fastest growing franchises in the world. In the 3 years that we’ve been franchising, we’ve sold over 170 franchises located in 30 states, and six countries outside of the U.S.
The Bricks 4 Kidz Model
The franchise model is flexible and ideal for working parents, as proven by its busy founder, who delivers classes and home schools around her family commitments. The franchise opportunity provides project-based learning programmes, designed to teach the basic principles of engineering to boys and girls aged between 3 and 12 using LEGO® bricks. The franchise is successful for a number of reasons:
- It's a truly home-based business with a proven model
- It requires a minimum investment and offers a rapid return on investment
- It can be operated flexibly, either full-time or part-time to suit you and the schedule follows the academic calendar so you don't have to worry about corporate hours
- However, if you want to work away outside of school terms this is possible through birthday parties and kids' camps during the holidays
- It has no national competition
- The profit margins are high and the fixed overheads are low
- It's easy to teach and quick to set up and the camps, classes and birthday parties are designed to be highly affordable
- Parents view these activities as educational so you'll have the satisfaction of providing high-value and affordable classes for people who value education
