More from Snapology

Explore Our #1 Ranked Children's Franchise!

Snapology is the premier option for STEAM programs (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math), offering year-round programs through dozens of revenue streams. Consistently ranked by Entrepreneur Magazine® as the top children's enrichment franchise, you can invest in the next generation while making a living!

In 2010, sisters Laura and Lisa Cole founded the Snapology company as a play program for children between the ages of one and fourteen using Lego, K'Nex, and iPads. Snapology aims to teach science, technology, engineering, art, and math in a playful, no-pressure environment. Today, Snapology has over 170 locations.

Why Snapology?

With this home-based franchise, you can incorporate play into your workday - what could be better? Snapology partners with local schools, recreation centers and community organizations to bring play- based STEAM education to kids ages 3-14. When children are actively engaged in hands-on, interactive learning activities, their creativity flourishes and they show a greater interest in school. If kids are happy, then parents are happy, and your business will flourish.

Snapology helps its franchisees make the business fit their personal and business objectives. You are given the opportunity to choose your courses and programs. Snapology has 80 programs available with over 1,000 hours of curriculum. It also offers over 40 birthday party themes to add to your business.

The variety of programs allows you to cater to your market and your customers’ needs. Franchisees also get ongoing support and the production of new innovative services to add to their Snapology curriculum.

OUR PROGRAMS ARE FUN

If it isn't fun, children will lose interest. Snapology programs provide the right balance between fun and education to appeal equally to children and their parents. We'll keep your customers coming back for more.

DOZENS OF REVENUE STREAMS

Imagine the possibilities with the over 60 different program topics and themes to offer for classes, parties, summer camps, scouting events...and the list goes on. Birthday parties alone are a $10 billion industry!

MULTIPLE PATHS TO SUCCESS

Snapology offers a flexible business model focused on teaching robotics and STEAM principles. Programs can be offered through a community-based (mobile) model or in your own Discovery Center.

Don't Just Choose a New Business ‐ Choose A New Lifestyle

This fast-growing franchise is seeking people who are committed to their mission of inspiring the future leaders of tomorrow - people who are ready to make a positive change in their community. The ideal franchisee recognizes the value of STEAM education but is not necessarily a teacher. In fact, the most successful owners of this franchise have backgrounds in sales and marketing. The low overhead of this company means you can start to be profitable quickly and grow exponentially. Snapology offers the opportunity to fulfill your dream of being your own boss and having the flexibility and freedom to live on your own terms. Whether that means spending more time with your family, traveling, or getting more involved in your community, the possibilities will be open to you when you join our children’s education franchise. Build a brighter future for yourself and your community by investing in a Snapology franchise today!
