Hear From Our Franchisees

Read What Our STEM Franchise Owners Have to Say

The Engineering For Kids franchise system is made up of over 150 franchise partners from a wide variety of backgrounds. We are proud to have owners who are educators, parents, business executives, engineers, and more. Some are owner-operators or investor-operators, while others are husband and wife teams or family businesses. Your name it, our flexible STEM franchise business model has it.

The most important characteristics we look for in prospective franchisees are strong person-to-person skills, basic knowledge of how to operate a business on a day-to-day basis, and the desire to make a difference in the lives of children in your community.

Our Franchisee Success

All of our franchisees, despite their wide range of backgrounds, have learned that Engineering For Kids enables them to build a successful business with strong community ties that ensure not only the easy acquisition of new customers but also a base of loyal repeat customers.

Due to our strong support system, our turn-key marketing materials, and our ever-evolving training model, our kids’ education franchise was awarded the Franchise Business Review 2015 Franchisee Satisfaction Award.

  • “I love that we innovate. Nobody else is teaching kids problem solving skills (EDP) in afterschool enrichment programs. My favorite part about running an EFK business is to see the impact that our program is having on our young students and how they embrace science and technology concepts through our hands on activities while having fun. EK Franchising Company provides tools and resources for us to run our business as an independent franchise. They are supportive of new ideas of promoting STEM and allow us as a franchise to explore creative ways to promote our programs such as partnering with Entertainment Centers (Flight Fit NFun Bakersfield) and Non-profit organizations (Valley PBS). Our Bakersfield community had limited resources for kids age 4 -14yrs to inspire their minds and skills in the area of Engineering and Technology and we saw Engineering for Kids program as a perfect opportunity to enrich the youth of our community in a fun and educational way.”

  • “Everyday I see new, creative ways to approach our activities. My favorite part about running an EFK business is the excitement of kids when they do our programs as well as their enthusiasm to learn and collaborate from the beginning to end. Every step of our business, from programs to training our staff, marketing and operations is supported by corporate. I decided to invest in Engineering For Kids because it’s a good business model while making kids learn and have fun at the same time. Making a meaningful impact in my community coupled with a good business model made Engineering For Kids an opportunity I could not pass up.”

  • “The challenge is not trying to drum up a business, but it’s more along the lines of trying to keep up with the demand. The students really enjoy the program and the curriculum is really fun with a purpose. We hope to turn that fun into a passion for engineering.”
