Creation Station franchise opportunity
Gain the freedom and flexibility you crave by running your own fun and rewarding business, with the security that comes with an established, tried and tested UK leading children’s creative activity brand – The Creation Station.
Our philosophy is to help each child create their own journey of exploration and discovery through safe, fun and educationally based art and crafts activities.
Due to increased market demand and based on feedback from our franchise owners we offer two types of franchise. These are as follows;
The ‘Core franchise’ includes the following activities;
- Preschool classes and family fun classes,
- Arty Birthday party entertainment
- Craft Events and event entertainment
The ‘Enhanced franchise’ includes all of the above plus
- Afterschool clubs
- Adult creative crafter classes and events
This means that, depending on your level of aspiration, you can run the Core or the Enhanced franchise. Some of our franchise owners run their business without staff and others have scaled their business and taken on staff to run multi school sites and adult prosecco and tapas craft nights.
With the Creation Station franchise, you choose how much or how little you want to do to suit your own level of aspiration, needs and goals. Find out more here.
