Sticky Fingers Cooking offers after-school cooking classes for young chefs and now it's a franchise opportunity! 

"You don’t have to be a chef or experienced entrepreneur to run this exciting and successful educational business from your home," said Erin Fletter, Founder and CEO of Sticky Fingers Cooking. "Sticky Fingers Cooking combines the joys of kids, cooking, eating, nutrition, food, history, math, science, and global cultures, into one successful business model."

While the front of house at Sticky Fingers Cooking offers a kids cooking school, the back-of-house is a proprietary technology platform (Sticky Fingers Cooking Dash™) that makes running a successful franchise easy. The team spent 9 years developing and perfecting this platform to support every aspect of running a franchise business. In addition to scheduling, invoicing, automated payroll, and managing team members, The Dash also allows instructors to access Lesson Plans and schedules, enables families to register and access the recipes made in class. It also delivers weekly curriculum, shopping lists, and everything a franchise owner needs to get up and running so you don't miss a BEET.

"The Dash has been THE tool that empowers me to focus less on business administration time and spend more on growing my local business," said Lucy Warenski, Area Director of Sticky Fingers Cooking Chicago since 2013. "Sticky Fingers has developed a real recipe for success and I am thrilled that we are now offering this opportunity to entrepreneurs everywhere."

The Sticky Fingers Cooking executive and management team is 25 strong and offers in-depth franchise support. They have experience in leading a national business and have successfully operated 5 company-owned Sticky Fingers Cooking outlets, in 3 states, for 9 years. The team partners with franchisees by providing ongoing support, lists of select schools in their territory, contacts in each market, thousands of recipes, and a proven curriculum.

"Over the past decade we’ve created a home-based business with a proprietary technology platform, solid systems, on-going support, and a proven business infrastructure has led to success for our company owned outlets," added Erin Fletter. "Our expansion into Illinois and Texas with Sticky Fingers Cooking employees demonstrated that we can grow to new markets and offer families a chance to be a part of a culinary revolution. We hope you’ll join us!"
