Taste Buds Kitchen specializes in fresh and unique cooking events. Our mission is to be the top culinary entertainment experience for kids and families by engaging and delighting our budding chefs in the kitchen.
What began as a few holiday baking classes and cupcake making birthday parties, quickly evolved into much more. Our culinary adventures include an ever-growing variety of classes, parties, camps and special events that combine a well-balanced mix of engaging recipes, both savory and sweet, as we take to the kitchen to sprout taste buds and a good time for all ages.
Taste Buds Kitchen is proclaimed the “Best Kids Cooking Class” by New York Magazine and featured as the must try activity by CBS, NBC, The Wall Street Journal, Fox, The New York Times, Hampton Magazine and more.
Taste Buds Kitchen provides a great opportunity to own a business that is exciting and lip-smackingly delicious. We are committed to helping you reach your dreams of success and independence by always treating you with the same care, dedication and attention to detail that we bring to our Kitchen. By joining the Taste Buds Kitchen family, you can capitalize on the popularity of our concept by opening a Kids Kitchen in your community.
Initial costs include the Franchise Fee, tenant build out & leasehold improvements, equipment, initial inventory and supplies, advertising, required working capital and the training program. Please keep in mind the costs do vary based on location, size of unit, suppliers and other factors. We will strategically work with you in obtaining the lowest costs when possible.
Taste Buds Kitchen is the most amazing Kitchen Studio designed and built just for kids. Tables and chairs adjust for kids and adults of all ages and kitchen utensils are located on lower shelves so that the kids can reach and take part in the whole kitchen experience alongside our chef instructors.
For all our adults looking to partake, don’t worry – our kitchen will work perfectly for you too! Jessi, the Founder, is 6’1″ and the kitchen works just as well for her as it does for our 2-year old budding chefs.
With your franchise you will receive a design and construction specification that will give you all the details on how to build your own Taste Buds Kitchen!
