With more than 110,000 children under the age of 12 living in Philadelphia – all of whom could benefit from the cognitive effects of art education programs, Kidcreate Studio, a concept centered on children’s art enrichment classes, camps and birthday parties, announces today that it has identified the area as its next expansion hub.

In an effort to pick up where public education has become more limited, Kidcreate Studio unveiled its plans to bring four studios to the market. As the leader in the underserved child art education industry, Kidcreate Studio is designed as an art enrichment program for children ages 18 months through 12 years and combines quality art education within a fun kid-friendly environment.

“Built to teach, inspire and build self-esteem, our brand is committed to filling a void in the marketplace by using the power of art to positively influence the lives of children,” said Lara Olson, founder and chief creative officer of Kidcreate Studio. “Philadelphia has tremendous long term growth potential and we look forward to speaking with positive, outgoing and business savvy entrepreneurs who have a passion for not only wanting to make a good living, but make a living of doing good.” 

Founded in 2008, by “mom-preneur” Lara Olson, Kidcreate Studio announced last year its franchise opportunity and strategic development plans to reach 100+ locations. With a low initial investment of $92,800-$198,500 and multiple revenue streams including art parties, on-the-go classes, retail sales and studio classes, the Kidcreate Studio franchise opportunity is extremely appealing. 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.
