The Kiddy Cook Business is a successful and well established Children's Cookery School Franchise. Kiddy Cook have a growing network of UK franchisees, all working towards helping 1000's of Primary School children love food and cooking.
Kiddy Cook is the first and most successful Children's Cookery School Franchise in the UK. Established in 2005, Kiddy Cook was created to provide children and young people with the opportunity to get cooking and it is now being delivered throughout the UK by a team of enthusiastic and skilled individuals.
Kiddy Cook strive for positive, lasting change for children and young people and they believe that if they can encourage children to cook good, healthy food then they can change the way they eat for life, as well as giving them skills they can use again and again.
Fun, inspiration and education is what Kiddy Cook is all about, and their team are passionate about teaching kids and young people how to have fun with food.
Whilst they all have different definitions of healthy, Kiddy Cook aim to use only the good stuff which means all of the recipes they choose to prepare with children taste fantastic. Most are good for us, and every one of them makes us feel good after we've eaten it!
The Kiddy Cook Business deliver innovative, cross curriculum cookery workshops in schools, teaching children the importance of healthy eating as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Kiddy Cook also offer workshops and parties for pre-schoolers, children, teens and young adults, as well as delivering their children's cookery theatre at food festivals across the UK.
Kiddy Cook provide all of the ingredients, cooking equipment, an apron, packaging and cooking know-how! During each session kids have fun with hands-on gastronomic experiments and everyone takes home their delicious dish together with a wipe clean recipe card to cook again at home. They even wash up and clear away!
Awarded 'Best Cookery Class’ by UK Enterprise Awards, Kiddy Cook continue their mission to inspire and educate children and young people when it comes to making healthy food fun!
As a Kiddy Cook Business Owner your earning potential is completely up to you. What determines how much YOU earn is YOU and is based on the amount of work, commitment, dedication and persistence YOU put into your territory.
It won't be easy! In fact, it's a huge challenge and you should be ready to work incredibly hard...but if you're willing to put the effort in then the rewards will inevitably come.
Kiddy Cook's portfolio of school cooking activity workshops, underpinned by the National Curriculum core subject of cooking and nutrition, is an evidence-based, education intervention aimed at improving health related knowledge and behaviours in children. They use cooking as an exciting way to teach subjects across the curriculum - from history to maths, science to enterprise, technology to geography.
Kiddy Cook's Kitchen Science Club is an afterschool cooking activity programme exclusively for local primary schools. They offer an interactive 'Food Experiments You Can Eat' assembly to whet kid's appetites and then follow-up with our afterschool clubs.
Kiddy Cook incorporate FOOD and SCIENCE into each lesson, so each child has a phenomenal experience preparing a FANTASTIC RECIPE whilst discovering how much fun food science can be!
Kiddy Cook fun doesn’t just happen in classes. They also offer bespoke parties that provide further opportunities for franchisees to build their business.
Kiddy Cook's CookieTots sessions for years 2-4 include music, games and activities based around food and cooking, together with practical hands-on recipes for each child to prepare.
Kiddy Cook continue to run their fantastic kids cookery theatre at Foodies Festivals across the UK, and this year they have been working with Feel Good Family - a team of specialists in the creative application of evidence based behavioural and consumer science in the fields of food and activity - all of which you could be a part of.
Franchisees get a comprehensive training period to include the opportunity to observe local classes, an operations manual that documents the steps to success in all areas of the Kiddy Cook Franchise. They also receive a bank of 100+ recipes, and help with promotion.
Franchisees get the business blueprint, but you can also be fairly creative. For instance, Kiddy Cook's NW franchisee has links with the National Trust and runs successful pick and cook workshops during the growing season.
This unique venture was established on top of usual requirements and is a great example of how you as a franchise can be super flexible alongside standard requirements of the franchise.
You also get the security of knowing that everything has been tried and tested. Whether it’s marketing and PR, helping you practice a sales-pitch, discussing new and creative ideas for your business, or simply confirming which size egg works best in a recipe, Franchisees are happy to help.
On top of this you'll get ongoing support from Head Office if you need it, a dedicated Facebook group and regular marketing snippets.
Franchisees come from a variety of backgrounds including marketing, advertising, broadcasting, banking and retail. They all have the same characteristics in common: they have integrity, a love of working with children, enthusiasm and ambition to grow a successful business and belief that food and cooking is a skill for life. One thing everyone does have in common is the desire to make a difference, doing a job that's more flexible, more rewarding and more fun too!
