How Kidcreate Studio Takes the Complexity Out of Business Technology

technologyThe rise of technology in small business has helped catapult entrepreneurs into the mainstream market, giving them the ability to compete with bigger brands while helping streamline their operations. In fact, technology assists small-business owners in leveraging capital to improve aspects of the business such as profits, productivity, customer service and the ability to market more efficiently and to a larger audience.

Oftentimes, understanding and implementing various forms of technology can be daunting for business owners, who must first determine the technology best suited for their needs, then learn how to utilize it and weave it into the current business model.

For Kidcreate Studio franchisees, all the legwork has been done. With a seamless integration of multiple technology-based systems in place, from initial training to ongoing support, franchisees are given all the tools necessary to succeed:


Class-Tracking Software

This custom-designed software allows franchisees to record where classes have been offered, track class performance and organize curriculum information. Franchisees can easily remain aware of top-performing classes, capitalizing on the information to maximize profitability and keep a finger on the pulse of the business.

 

Database Management

database managementMaintaining a database is essential to the growth and success of a business. As a business grows, however, it can become more challenging to keep track of the influx of customers and properly utilize the increasing amounts of available information. Kidcreate Studio provides customized database management software with a variety of web forms to help build and grow a database which also generates sales leads.

In addition, the software serves as an all-in-one sales and marketing program, hosting more than 20 customized marketing campaigns, sending weekly newsletters, automating customer surveys and assisting in employee task allocation.

 

Online Registration

online registration 1An overwhelming amount of businesses provide customers with the opportunity to accomplish tasks online, making the ability to register for Kidcreate classes online appreciated by both franchisees and parents. The Kidcreate Studio registration system is fully integrated, automatically transferring customer information where it needs to be. From start to finish, the online registration process includes payment processing, a confirmation email, addition of the student’s name to the class roster and the customer’s data imported into the franchisee’s Kidcreate Studio database.

Online registration is not limited to classes, however. Birthday parties become simple to plan with a simple party confirmation process, online party waivers and upsell techniques built right into the party booking process. Online birthday party registrations also allow for customized art projects and gift bags centered around party themes.

 

The Kidcreate Studio business model provides franchisees with multiple revenue streams, increasing the need for efficient, integrated technology to keep things on track. With up-to-date systems and corporate support to help each franchisee become successful, Kidcreate Studio has enjoyed a double-digit year over year increase for the last four years and is projected to continue impressive expansion for years to come.

4 Key Revenue Generators for Kidcreate Studio Owners

There are a number of proven benefits for art exposure in early childhood, including mentally, socially and emotionally, yet art classes are typically the first to be cut when schools reevaluate their budgets. What’s more, more than 80 percent of schools across the country experienced budget cuts since 2008.

Because an increasing number of parents are recognizing the importance of art exposure at a time when more schools are cutting their classes, they are turning to supplemental programs to enrich their children’s development.

Kidcreate Studio has been meeting this growing need since 2007 for children 18 months through 12 years old with classes consisting of art creation—while learning about art history, concepts and techniques. With over 1,000 lesson plans and more in the pipeline, the Kidcreate curriculum is tailored to match the specific development needs of children in every age group.

With annual store revenue for franchise owners averaging $411,000, with double-digit growth year over year for the last four years, Kidcreate is a great business model for aspiring entrepreneurs looking to enter a growing field poised for continued success.

In fact, Kidcreate is strategically structured to create four distinct revenue streams, giving franchise owners unlimited potential for success from every angle:

1) Studio Classes

Mom's Group Art ClassKidcreate Studio’s heart and soul is the kid’s art studios and the foundation on which all other revenue streams are built. Studio classes embody the “art education made fun!” mantra, and provide parents with a number of options for their children, such as weekly classes, holiday themed classes, classes on camps for ‘no-school days,’ summer camps and even homeschool classes for private art classes. A brick and mortar location, in addition to on-the-go service, helps add visibility and brand recognition to the business. Oftentimes, new customers will explore Kidcreate simply from driving by the studio.

2) Art Parties

Kidcreate Birthday BoyRanging from kid’s birthday parties to play groups, scout troops or just regular art parties, Kidcreate Studio offers customized art projects, gift bags and party themes for any occasion. Parents love knowing their children are entertained, inspired and educated, and the kids have fun getting messy and using their imagination. As a franchise owner, the process is simplified with automated birthday party marketing campaigns, easy party confirmation processes, online party waivers to grow studio databases and upsell techniques built into the booking process to make the system not only simple, but lucrative.

3) On-the-Go Classes

on-the-go_studio-2Wherever kids are, Kidcreate Studio classes can be taught. It is simple to turn any community venue into a kid’s art studio complete with high-quality art instruction. Kidcreate fulfills the growing need for art as an added supplement to existing programs. Franchise owners can quickly become valuable partners for a number of local organizations, such as:

  • Parks and recreation programs
  • Community education centers
  • Charters and private schools
  • Daycares and preschools
  • Libraries
  • Churches

Through mobile services, franchise owners can book significantly more classes and cross-market to both studio customers and on-the-go customers.

4) Retail Sales

retail itemsOnce parents and kids are in the door, retail sales are a great supplement to the art classes and programs offered. From craft kits to art books and supplies, to gift items and Kidcreate apparel, the retail assortment taps into parents’ and kids’ impulse to buy with education-based items that appeal to mom and child alike. Franchise owners are provided with approved vendor lists, order forms and a point-of-sales system for transactions and inventory – fully integrated with the studio database and financial software – to make retail sales an effortless addition.

5 Reasons Why Art is Important for Early Childhood Development

Art is Smart!

Here Are 5 Reasons Why Art Is So Important for Early Childhood Development.

Kidcreate Studio_taylor with paintStudies show students who study art are four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement and three times more likely to be awarded for school attendance. In fact, countries that consistently score highest in math and the sciences have mandatory art classes in schools.

Unfortunately, arts programs in U.S. schools are often underfunded and in danger of being cut. This is in large part due to most states now providing less support per student in elementary and secondary schools, leading to decreased funds and fewer teachers.

Despite the reduced focus on the arts in schools today, parents are encouraged to provide their children with exposure through supplemental programs outside of the traditional classroom.

In early childhood development, art benefits children in a variety of ways, such as:

 

1. Motor Skills

When kids participate in creating arts and crafts, there are many movements involved. From holding a paintbrush to coloring with a crayon, a child’s fine motor skills progress through this hands-on approach to education. Other actions, such as using scissors, help develop the dexterity children need for writing.

2. Language Development

In addition to getting their hands physically dirty creating art, children have the opportunity to expand their vocabulary by learning words for colors, shapes and various actions. This helps children use descriptive words to discuss their creation, and will help them express what feelings are elicited from observing different types of art by the time they are in elementary school.

3. Decision-Making

Studies show art education strengthens both critical-thinking and problem-solving skills in young children. The process of creating art gives children choices and urges them to make decisions in the course of creating their art – a crucial skill that translates into other parts of life. For example, exploration through art will encourage children to try new ideas in other areas of life. Not only will this further spark creativity and imagination, but children can also use critical thinking to react to new experiences and problem-solve when necessary.

4. Cultural Awareness

Exposing children to a variety of interpretations on society is a great way to help them understand the nuances of their surroundings and embrace the differences they see around them in the diverse society we live in today.

5. Encourages Neural Connections

Because art employs any or all of the senses, such as sight, sound, taste and smell, the synapses in the brain of a small child fire away as they experience situations that immerse their senses and further encourage their creativity. In fact, a young brain makes billions of new connections with every bit of new knowledge it is exposed to. In young children, artistic activities lead to the formation of well-rounded personalities, good attachment, self-esteem and better mental health.

Kidcreate Studio Pursues National Expansion through Passionate Entrepreneurs

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

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (August 19, 2016) – In an effort to keep the creativity flowing after the bell rings, Kidcreate Studio, 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 becoming 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 born.

“My passion for entrepreneurship has stemmed from the love for my son and my personal drive to expose him 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.”
