Jackson, MI (PRWEB) June 05, 2012
KidzArt announces it was ranked in the top 10 percent of all franchises nationwide and named a 2012 Military Friendly Franchise® by G.I. Jobs Magazine. KidzArt is honoring military veterans by offering a free, no-fee franchise package for ten qualified service members this year, allowing vets to use their training and operational skills in a new civilian career.
“The Military Friendly Franchises® list was created three years ago out of demand from military veterans, many of whom want to start or own their own business but are unclear where to begin,” said Sean Collins, director for G.I. Jobs. “Being selected as a Military Friendly Franchise places KidzArt in this elite group, and is testimony to KidzArt's world class programs and policies that support military veterans interested franchise opportunities.”
KidzArt franchise offers a unique art and drawing afterschool program for all ages, from preschoolers to adults. Art classes are kept small, usually around 12 to 15 enrollees, to maximize the amount of attention paid to each student. The program teaches how to express and gain greater self-confidence through drawing. KidzArt also provides art birthday parties, workshops and art camps for students during school vacations and the summer break.
In addition to waiving the $9,900 franchise fee KidzArt is offering a protected territory, a Web page, a $500 online class registration system, $1000 off all start up marketing services, complete business and art training and on-going franchise support. Program requirements include an interview, the ability to attend training in Jackson, MI for four days and $3,500 available for working capital to launch the business.
"KidzArt wants to provide former service members with the opportunity to become business owners and leaders in their communities," says KidzArt CEO, Sue Bartman. "We're pleased to be named to G.I. Job's Military Friendly Franchise list and to help veterans in their post-military career success."
