Code Ninjas Predicting Rapid Growth
Code Ninjas, a new franchise dedicated to teaching kids software coding, announced a major milestone with 100 franchise agreements in development with 53 franchisees in 23 states. Noting that parents are “increasingly willing to pay for their children to learn while having fun,” the Texas-based children education brand is one of several brands seeing an uptick in interest in one of franchising’s hottest categories.
Code Ninjas was first started in 2016, and only began franchising in February of 2017, so the brand has a long way to go before seeing 100 open and operating units even with such lofty projections. The company’s curriculum includes basic coding language, math skills, problem solving and teamwork.
“2017 was a year of incredible milestones for us and we have no plans to slow down in 2018,” said David Graham, CEO and founder of Code Ninjas. Graham previously founded Coder Camps, a problem that taught software development to adults.
With its flagship location in Pearland, Texas, currently operating and 21 locations slated to open in Q1 of 2018, Code Ninjas anticipates at least 50 units operating by the end of Q2 and 100 operating by the end of the year. To achieve this goal, Code Ninjas seeks qualified franchise partners looking for a personally and financially rewarding business opportunity that positively impacts America’s youth. Interested candidates do not require previous coding experience. The Code Ninjas leadership team brings decades of experience in the software development and franchising fields, and offers significant support for marketing/sales, operations, and extensive training.
“Our mission is to teach children to think and problem solve like a coder, as well as obtain skills to achieve future professional success,” added Graham. “We’re humbled by our success thus far and look forward to fostering growing relationships with parents and children in communities across the nation to achieve our mission.”
According to the company, Code Ninjas franchisees can expect an investment ranging from $108,000 to $223,000. The brand looks to further expand its footprint in existing markets throughout Texas, as well as break into new territories. Specifically, the brand is targeting Chicago, Denver, Phoenix, Washington, D.C., among more.
No word on whether franchisees get a cut of future earnings from its students, which seems to this reporter like the real cash cow.
