Recent Statistics Demonstrate the Value of Kid-Friendly Franchises

At Unleashed Brands, we’re well aware that owning a kid-related franchise can be an exciting adventure – especially for parents with children, who have an innate understanding of the consumer target market and the challenges our consumers face. The youth enrichment concepts we offer can be rewarding experiences for the entrepreneurially minded, but as you’ll see, they also have quite the potential for success.

Unleashed Brands recently undertook some internal research to find data and statistics that demonstrate the value and popularity of kid-friendly franchises. What we found may surprise you, but we were expecting it. Keep reading for some convincing arguments that owning one of the six Unleashed Brands franchise opportunities can be a sound investment…

What the Surveys and Studies Say…

Many of our candidates are unaware of the sheer amount of proof points that highlight the value of kid-related business opportunities. For instance – are you aware of how much parents spend on their children’s extracurricular activities each year? On average, 10-25% of parent’s discretionary income goes to these pursuits, of which numerous studies and surveys pinpoint the dollar figure at over $1,000 annually. Parents in higher income brackets spend even more, 20% of discretionary income that amounts to $2,500 per child! Just how big is this target market? The latest census data reports approximately 73 million children in the U.S., of which nearly 18% are between the ages of 0-14. By 2030, it’s anticipated the number of children in the U.S. will top 80 million. That’s a big group of consumers that have an insatiable need for entertainment!

What are the Advantages of Owning a Kid-Friendly Franchise?

At Unleashed Brands, we understand that owning a franchise is an investment. And when you invest in any asset, you’d like to know exactly what the advantages amount to. For child-focused franchises, there are several. Of course, ownership of these establishments is rewarding, but most offer franchisees plenty of flexibility to achieve a desirable work-life balance. Families know that kids operate best on schedules – be it school, after-school, sports/club activities, or just plain old family time. Our franchise opportunities, a few of which are even mobile based, fit right into this schedule. It’s safe to say they’re also recession-resistant, though it’s looking more and more like the U.S. won’t have to worry about that possibility – a great time to invest! Lastly, most child-related franchise opportunities are positioned to be affordable and to get you up and running as a business owner quickly.
