Questions to consider when choosing a children's cookery franchise or license.

How long has the organisation been running?

Long enough to weather changing funding priorities in the education sector and dips in consumer confidence? Check their business plan is robust enough to give you the confidence to put all your eggs in THEIR basket.

How diverse is their offer and is there a natural upsell as children grow older?

Even if you focus on just a couple of niche areas, you can offer progression opportunities,

and encourage long term repeat custom  from families.

Why work so hard to engage families, build their trust and win their enthusiasm, only to lose their custom when their child turns 5 or reaches senior school?
