FAQ

Are You Right For Drama Kids?

We are looking for degreed teachers, or people with business experience who have:

  • A keen interest in the education of young children
  • A commitment to quality
  • Strong people skills
  • People who are willing to dedicate their time and their effort on a full time basis

To be successful in this business, you really must love children and people. Even with the power of a solid franchise behind you, building a business is hard work. Many franchisees don’t mind working hard because they are building something real for themselves while making a positive difference in the children they serve.

What Does The Franchise Fee And Initial Investment Cover?

The franchise fee for a Drama Kids franchise varies based upon market size and household income levels. The franchise fee includes full license of our branded curriculum and sales materials, a generous territory to build your business which is exclusive to you, a week of classroom training, comprehensive educational materials for sales, personnel management and operations, our detailed operations manual, access to our professionally designed marketing materials, and business coaching and local support.

How Much Do I Need To Invest To Open My Drama Kids Franchise?

We are very proud that Drama Kids was recently ranked by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the top 50 low investment franchise opportunities for 2015.
The initial franchise fee for a standard territory is $24,700. Our territories are based upon the number of “qualifying households”, which are those with a household income of $75,000 or more. A standard territory consists of up to 30,000 qualifying households. Additional territory (qualifying households) can be added for an additional fee, which is based upon the number of qualifying households being added.

In addition to the franchise fee, we estimate that the additional initial investment required to cover expenses such as your travel and lodging associated with our initial week-long training program, insurance premium for the first year, business and office setup, and initial marketing and advertising expenses will be between $3,900 and $10,000.

These figures are estimates, and your actual initial investment may vary depending upon a number of factors which we will be happy to discuss with you. You will be provided a full list of start-up items and estimated costs as part of your discover Drama Kids process.

Will I Personally Teach Drama Classes?

In order to reinforce our core class techniques we ask that all owners teach some initial classes themselves. Every small business owner initially needs to learn how to “make the doughnuts” We believe in this principle. You may also elect to hire part time teachers initially, or do so at a pace that fits your talents and requirements. Ultimately your goal will be to have others teaching the majority, if not all of your classes. We will guide you in this process.

Why Is Drama Kids A Great Choice For Today?

Due to budget cuts and the focus on stringent reading and math test scores, schools are reducing or eliminating creative arts education programs. In fact, most public schools do not offer a drama program either during school or as an after school activity.

  • Parents recognize the value of dramatic arts education and seek out such programs for their children.
  • Private schools, charter schools, and daycare centers are looking for competitive advantages. Drama Kids offers safe, and fun adventures for their students without students needing to leave the school.
  • Children, parents and school administrators find the Drama Kids programs are unique, fun, educational and creative!
  • Our business model has low operating costs and so can be priced very affordably for today’s families. This makes Drama Kids a very recession-resistant business.

How Long Does It Take To Get Started?
