The iCode Difference Starts With Culture

Culture is a key differentiator within an iCode education franchise. We strongly believe that it plays a critical role in the success of any enterprise. However, corporate America can often feel like ‘adult daycare’ with supervisors micromanaging each move their employees make. That’s not how iCode, one of the best franchises to own, operates.

We believe that business is a team sport, and each person is responsible for the results in their area. We hire qualified professionals and empower them to utilize their expertise to carry out their position and make impactful decisions. This level of empowerment instills a great sense of ownership and fulfillment in the education franchise team. Our team members work collaboratively, without egos, politics, or silos, as we believe that all individuals can contribute in multiple ways.

We promote creativity, openness, ownership, and pride in the company’s success versus a single individual’s success. We also have our fingers on the pulse of the education franchise market as well as our customer needs to ensure we always remain relevant. Our team has a deep conviction in the service we are providing and the business model we offer, and we fervently believe that we are making a difference in the lives of the children attending iCode. That’s what makes iCode one of the best franchises to own. Period.

iCode’s Best In Class Curriculum

Our education franchise curriculum is a living, breathing document that is continuously evolving with technology. Our team of computer scientists, software architects, and instructional designers evaluate market trends and gather feedback from our franchisees, parents, instructors, and children to update and expand our proprietary curriculum. At iCode, we utilize gamified learning to engage children and teach them advanced concepts often taught at the college level including data science, Linux based networking, and software development to name a few. In addition to technical skills, our education franchise curriculum also weaves in vital soft skills such as collaboration, public speaking, critical thinking, and project management to help build their confidence and prepare them for their futures.

Your Franchise’s Physical Facility

Kids learn best working in small groups where they can easily collaborate and share ideas, which also simulates real-world working environments. This is why we have segmented our facility into ‘hubs’ or classrooms where we can conduct lessons in a class setting. We also believe that children retain information better when they can practice what they learn. Each of our hubs are outfitted with the latest STEM equipment such as drones through our exclusive partnership with DJI, rover robotics and scientific calculators through our partnership with Texas Instruments, VEX robotics, 3D printers, and much more. And finally, we believe that environment matters when children are learning. We want kids to feel as if they are walking into their own startup versus an after-school daycare. We often hear kids begging parents to ‘stay just a little bit longer’ or to enroll them in another camp. And parents are equally eager to enroll their students in our education franchises when they see their children’s excitement for learning.

Your Campus Provides Multiple Revenue Streams

iCode franchisees are the best franchises to own because franchisees benefit from over 9 different revenue streams. This is accomplished through our variety of on-campus classes and camps, our virtual classes, partnership programs, and our after-school Tech Club which we run at various ISD campuses and private schools. Many of our franchisees are able to start generating revenue before their iCode campuses are even built through off-site partnerships or virtual classes.

Multiple Hubs Provide Room for Simultaneous Learning

Unlike our competitors, who generally have one large room for all ages, iCode campuses have 4 to 5 rooms or ‘hubs’ where we can offer different classes simultaneously. This allows us to appeal to different ages, skill levels, and interests, as well as promoting collaboration and other important soft skills.

Our Soft Skills Focus

At iCode, our focus is not just on teaching kids STEM skills. We also focus a great deal on helping our students develop soft skills such as collaboration, critical thinking, presentation skills, and leadership. These skills are just as critical to success in today’s society and in building confidence.

A Growth Industry

We all know you should invest in industries that are growing. The global education technology market size was valued at $106.46 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.5% from 2022 to 2030. This is due to growing demand for trained technical workers. It’s estimated that 3.5 million jobs will need to be filled by 2025.

Low Investment

Many of the available franchise options are in the food & beverage industry which requires a capital investment between $2- $5,000,000. iCode requires a more affordable investment between $198,000 and $360,000.

Customer Gratitude

Parents are so grateful to have a quality STEM education franchise program that can offer their child a head start in their education and open their eyes to new and growing opportunities. AND the kids are having such a great time learning, the parents don’t have to drag their child to attend. It’s not uncommon to get ‘Thank Yous’ from our parents.
