Children’s Art Studio to “Paint the States” with New Franchise Opportunity

Minneapolis-Based Kidcreate Studio Pursues National Expansion through
Passionate Entrepreneurs

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#franchising–In an effort to keep the creativity flowing after the bell rings, Kidcreate
, a franchise concept focused on children’s art enrichment
classes, camps and birthday parties, announced today their plans to
“paint the states” through the launch of its franchise opportunity.

Since its founding in 2008 by Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Lara
Olson, Kidcreate Studio has used the power of art to positively
influence the lives of children ages 18 months through 12 years.
Kidcreate Studios are home to giggles, creativity, confidence, discovery
and fun, and are designed to serve as enrichment programs that pick up
where public education has become more limited. The concept, which
currently has two corporate locations in Eden Prairie and Woodbury,
Minnesota, is focused around four key-offerings; in-studio and on-the-go
art classes, camps and art-themed birthday parties.

The brand has seen robust sales and both locations have built-up a solid
base of returning customers. With the recent launch of its franchise
opportunity, Kidcreate Studio gives passionate entrepreneurs across the
country an investment opportunity that truly makes a difference in the
lives of children. With aggressive yet strategic development plans, the
brand has set a goal of reaching 100+ franchise locations through
careful and conservative growth with the right partners.

“At Kidcreate Studio, we are searching for candidates who have a knack
for identifying new ways to grow their business, have the
entrepreneurial drive to do so and are serious about succeeding,” says
Olson. “Our concept is not only the perfect “second act” career as the
franchise opportunity appeals to women looking to get back into the
workforce after raising children, but we have something to offer that
our competitors do not—brick and mortar locations and a flexible
‘semi-absentee’ owner structure.”

Kidcreate Studio was founded out of a need to provide children with more
art education—something that Olson discovered was lacking in the public
education sector after she realized that her son Jake was receiving less
than one hour of art at school per week. After watching her son Jake
struggle in traditional subjects such as math and science, but excel in
art, Olson knew her destiny was to provide an art enrichment program to
compliment what Jake was receiving at school—thus Kidcreate Studio was

“My passion for entrepreneurship has stemmed from the love for my son
and my personal drive to expose him to the world of creativity and
self-expression. I am thrilled to announce our franchise expansion plans
which will help us provide an environment filled with ingenuity and
inspiration to kids across the nation,” added Olson.

With a low initial investment of $54,000-$120,000 and multiple revenue
streams including art parties, on-the-go classes, retail sales and
studio classes, the Kidcreate Studio franchise opportunity is extremely
appealing. The brand has a predesigned system and an extensive
curriculum library while offering a seamless integration of multiple
technology-based systems and customized class tracking capabilities.
Potential franchisees will also benefit from the support provided by
mature franchise executives who serve as resources to the Kidcreate
Studio system. Kidcreate Studio is looking to franchise with positive,
outgoing and business savvy operators in markets across the U.S. Future
locations would mirror Kidcreate Studio’s original layout, which is
roughly 1,300 square-feet, and will be situated in high-traffic areas
surrounded by coffee shops, restaurants, convenient shops, grocery
stores, and bookstores.

“Kidcreate Studio has unlimited growth potential as we can operate in
all types of locations where kids are present,” said Olson. “This
concept is so special to me and I am so excited to expand our Kidcreate
Studio family to entrepreneurs who not only wants to make a good living,
but make a living of doing good.”
