Low cost children educational franchise start your own businessTexas continues to be one of the best states for creation and development of small businesses. Per research compiled by G. Scott Thomas of the American City Business Journals (ACBJ), five metropolitan areas in Texas show year over year growth in number of small businesses.

These five metros are included in the research where in a 15-part formula was used to rate the small business vitality of 106 metros across the United States.

For people looking to start their own business, franchising continues to be a viable low risk alternative. Per the International Franchise Association, franchising increases chances of business success by associating the business owner with proven products and methods to get into business while maintaining a certain level of independence.

Entrepreneurs in Texas are embracing an innovative children’s educational franchise opportunity with STEM For Kids® to launch their own businesses.

Dr. Willie Ow, and Rita Ow, owners of STEM for Kids North Dallas franchise have been homeschool parents to their five little kids for over 8 years. “My oldest son and I are both very passionate in robotics, engineering, and programming. So, when we found STEM for Kids we knew it would be a perfect fit for us. We are also extremely excited to offer our services to the children in our area because they have not been able to have easy access to STEM classes which helps them in areas like critical thinking, collaborations, communication, and creativity (these are the 4 C’s of STEM for Kids!).” says Willie.

In Austin, entrepreneurs Srinivas Gummadi and Venkata Chiluvuri are launching their STEM For Kids franchised business. The owners combined have served in various branches of engineering for over 50 years. They made Central Texas (Austin and surrounding areas) their home for over 15 years and are very proud to give back something to the community where their kids grew.

STEM For Kids® provides the broadest array of engineering, computer programming and advanced manufacturing programs for children in grades preK-8 through summer camps, afterschool programs and workshops in and outside schools. STEM For Kids® franchise opportunities are available in the state of Texas including the areas of Houston, San Antonio, Dallas-Fortworth, El Paso and McAllen-Edinburg.

Business owners can start with as low as $20,000. Entrepreneurs with a passion to impact their community through education can learn more and apply at the STEM For Kids website, or call +1 866 991 7053.
