Kiddy Cook Franchising Ltd
Childrens cooking activity classes and parties.
What’s it all about?
Kiddy Cook is an innovative franchise aimed at promoting cookery skills, healthy eating and food awareness amongst pre-school and primary school children. The business breaks down into 2 different brands.
Kiddy Cook provides cooking classes and parties for children aged 4 -11 years. During each session the children have fun with hands-on experiments and recipes and they are encouraged to learn about ‘good’ food and to explore new flavours in an educational and fun way.
CookieTots is the UK’s FIRST cooking specific child development programme for children aged 2 – 4 years. Each class incorporates food with music and games to create a positive culinary learning experience with an emphasis on having FUN!
In addition to public classes, we run sessions in nurseries, Sure Start centres and schools. We also have a partnership with the National Trust and run pick and cook sessions throughout the year which significantly increases income for franchisees.
You’ll need to bring a few things to the table to be a successful Kiddy Cook franchisee:
- Loads of enthusiasm and energy (cooking with children is fun but tiring!)
- An ability to relate well with children and to get on with their parents or carers
- A passion for Kiddy Cook
- a real belief in our brand
- An interest in cooking (don’t worry, you don’t need to be the next Delia Smith or Jamie Oliver…. honestly!)
Kiddy Cook is perfect for those seeking to address the challenges of balancing fulfilling, flexible work with family life.
It can provide a good income, add real value to a local community and is completely different to other franchises currently for sale!

Training and Support
Initial training will include all aspects of running your business including legal requirements, paperwork, customer care, advertising and marketing, following lesson plans, recipe ideas for classes, songs, music use of stories, choosing the right venue and much more – everything you need to get started. Further training courses will also be available.

Since Jamie Oliver’s push to improve school dinners – getting children to eat a healthy, balanced diet continues to make the news.
There’s no better time to start a business that encourages kids into the kitchen. There is no other franchise that provides a cooking development programme for pre-schoolers.
Frances Webster, former project manager for an investment bank. “Having been made redundant whilst I was pregnant, and after 8 months of loving motherhood, I was looking for something new. I didn’t want to go back into investment banking and I wanted a challenge which I would be able to fit around my family. I thought Kiddy Cook was a fantastic concept from the moment I found it on the internet – that was in February 2010. I signed the agreement at the beginning of April and started my classes in June. I now run 3 weekly Cookie Tot classes have done a Kiddy Cook workshop and over the summer I am really busy doing classes for several Sure Start centres and a local school. The feedback to the classes has been great and the numbers have grown dramatically over the course of a few weeks.
I am still finding my feet but have lots of potential work coming up after the summer, some of which I have looked for and some of which I have been approached to do. I am quickly filling my days (and evenings) and am looking for some people to help run sessions for me to meet the demand. It’s been a busy few months but I absolutely love it and would never have thought 6 months ago I would be where I am now. Its great being my own boss and building my business how I want to.
