Snapology Franchise Information
In 2010, sisters Laura and Lisa Coe founded the company Snapology as a creative game show for children ages one to 14 using Lego, K’Nex and iPads. Snapology, part of the Unleashed Brands family, has more than 170 franchises in the United States and is the number one choice for year-round STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) programs. Snapology aims to teach science, technology, engineering, robotics, art, and math in a playful, pressure-free environment. STEAM education teaches children to think outside the box and provides a multitude of benefits, including the development of soft skills like problem solving and increased motivation and engagement. Kids love Snapology activities because they’re fun and involve building toys, iPads, and laptops, and parents love the shows because they introduce their kids to educational concepts that will better prepare them for their futures.
Because children are our future, Snapology is doing our part to use creative play and these programs as building blocks to prepare them for life’s challenges. We design our curriculum to help children of all educational levels and backgrounds, from gifted to special needs, including those on the autism spectrum. Our educational franchise has received countless awards and accolades and has been the #1 child enrichment franchise in of the entrepreneur Franchise 500 for the last two consecutive years (2021-2022). Here are some good reasons why you should consider franchising with Snapology:
- The Snapology program is fun: If it’s not fun, kids will lose interest. Snapology camps and programs strike the right balance of fun and education to appeal to kids and their parents alike. Examples of programs include STEAM, game design, robotics, birthdays, competitions, and team building.
- Dozens of income streams: Imagine the possibilities with over 80 different program themes and themes offered for classes, parties, summer camps, scouting events…the list goes on.
- Multiple paths to success: Snapology offers a flexible business model focused on teaching robotics and STEAM principles. We can offer programs through a community-based (mobile) model or in your own Discovery Center.
- Strategically Designed Territories: Our domestic and international territories have mature operating areas that will maximize the potential of your Snapology location.
