When hunting for a potential franchise opportunity, you may have come across a variety of children’s franchises. Unsure if this industry is right for you? If the following qualities describe you, a children’s franchise might be the right fit.

You Enjoy Working with Children

This one may seem a bit obvious, but it’s also one of the most important qualities needed to be a successful children’s franchise owner. The best franchisees are people who are passionate about their businesses and feel a sense of fulfillment from their chosen industry.

At iCode, our franchisees don’t often serve as class instructors, instead hiring high school and college-age students with coding knowledge. While they may not be in the classroom with kids, they still need to possess the patience and understanding needed to make children feel comfortable at their business.

You Have Business Acumen

Investing in a children’s franchise will give you the processes, resources, and support you need to thrive, but you’ll still need the business know-how to follow these systems. Many franchisees have experience in operations, marketing, sales, or even business ownership prior to investing in a franchise. This provides a foundation upon which to build your business.

At iCode, some of our franchisees have a background in tech, bringing their functional knowledge of the industry to their business. We believe that, with the right mindset and some hard work, someone with keen business sense can become a fantastic franchisee.

You Want to be Active in Your Business

There are very few children’s franchises that enable you to be a passive business owner. Engaged franchisees who are active in their businesses yield the best results. This is especially true when you are first starting out. Your franchisor is there to support you with training and resources, but launching your new business will take hard work and dedication.

You Love to Meet New People

Networking is a great way to introduce your community to your new children’s franchise. Being an active member of your community, such as a PTA parent, member of the local Chamber of Commerce, or a little league coach, can help you meet people who can become customers.

However, it’s never too late to start getting out there and networking! Once you’ve launched your new business, be sure to try and make connections with local schools and organizations that can help you find new leads.

You’re Looking for a Rewarding Business

A children’s franchise gives you the opportunity to make a positive impact on kids’ lives. You can give kids the space to learn and grow while making connections with their peers.

When you invest in an iCode franchise, you will help kids explore their interest in STEM while learning valuable skills they can carry with them for the rest of their lives. With a variety of classes and proprietary curricula, each of your students will be able to find the right fit for their interests.
