Sticky Fingers Cookery Parties take the stress out of organising a child's party, making memories for parents to treasure forever. Sticky Fingers business owners take the party to the children, bringing the ingredients, equipment and party food to the venue and supervising the children as they mix, bake, decorate… and of course get sticky.
Sticky Fingers has been a great success since it launched in 2008. Initially parties were held in the founder, Janet Cousins’ Deli-café, but it was soon apparent that a different business model was needed to take the business to the next level.
As the demand for parties grew, so did the need for recruiting additional Party Directors to host the parties and in 2016 Sticky Fingers gained two franchisees.
Sticky Fingers promotes flexible working by offering several ways to generate income from a family friendly business: children’s cookery parties; pre-school and after school workshops; nurseries and holiday clubs. This allows the franchisee to choose which parties, clubs and workshops will best suit their family life and schedule.
Franchisees can either run a couple of sessions per week to fit in with their family, concentrate on weekend parties, or do all of this to generate a full-time income.
Sticky Fingers know that flexible working is very important, particularly to those who have young children, and running your own business should be about making it work for you and your family.
As a franchisee, you can expect to earn around £150 net per two hour party after all expenses and royalties have been paid. This does not include any additional income you could generate through sales of merchandise, birthday cakes etc.
Larger parties choosing the Gold or Platinum package will generate in excess of £200 per party. The pre and after-school classes and holiday clubs can also generate a steady income on a weekly basis.
You do not need previous teaching experience, just oodles of enthusiasm. Full training is included together with a food hygiene course and all the equipment you need to get started. Franchisees can benefit from additional income streams through after-school and holiday clubs.
You can start your own successful Sticky Fingers Business for under £3,000 and receive comprehensive business and marketing support in your own exclusive geographical area. Affordable business loans are available.
Over the last year I have had a lot of fun doing the parties, meeting children and parents, and getting great feedback. I have been hugely supported by Janet who enables independent working under the professional umbrella of the Sticky Fingers business.Anne Theakstone
