About The Franchise:

Young Rembrandts is the only art enrichment program in the Franchise 500, and #2 in Children's Enrichment Programs overall ‐ an industry which Entrepreneur called a "recession resistant business" and one of the "7 Hot Business Ideas!" Why? In poor economies, parents won't spend on frivolous, big ticket items that make little to no lasting impressions on their children's lives, but statistics show they will still invest in education.

Young Rembrandts franchisees are not only seeing little to no change in their incoming revenues - many have seen unusual growth. One multi‐unit owner in Jacksonville, Florida accounts his success to fulfilling a need for quality and formal art education. "When limited funding forces schools to cut the arts out of their curriculum they turn to us to fill that gap."

Young Rembrandts is not only the right opportunity at the right time; it is truly an exciting and unique concept. It is so many dreams rolled into one neat package - it's an affordable, family‐friendly, true home‐based business; it's a profitable and secure investment; it's a chance to make a difference in the lives of children, education, and to a community; AND it's a got the 'feel‐good' 'something‐to‐get‐excited‐about' quality not easily found in other concepts.

Possible Red Flags

Do I have to be an artist? No. Very few of our owners have a background in art. Our philosophy is

based on the fact that creativity is teachable skill-and that includes our owners!

Do I have to teach? Owners do not teach their class-instead our model is based on hiring a network

of instructors that teach the Young Rembrandts curriculum to accounts.

Do I have to pay for new curriculum? No. New curriculum is developed on an ongoing basis, and

owners do not pay for new materials/updates.
