Students not only learn about robotics but the software and coding that make them function. Completed projects are often entered into competitions.

Seller and staff write the programs and curriculums, handle enrollment, procure locations, schedule classes, purchase supplies and teach.

Competitive Advantages:

School and Business Partnerships — Education and training providers are partnering with high schools, community colleges, and private employers to create programs that help students develop skills that prepare them to enter the workforce. Some technology and manufacturing firms offer scholarships and instructional support for programs that provide advanced training in their fields.

Products, Operations & Technology:

Major services include technical and trade schools (about 30% of industry revenue) and business schools and computer training (about 25%). Technical and trade schools include cosmetology, flight, real estate, bartending, apprenticeship, and professional development institutions. Other services include fine arts schools, sports and recreation instruction, language schools, exam preparation and tutoring, and driving schools.

Education & training services cater to a broad demographic, ranging from a teenager taking a driving class to a CEO on a leadership retreat. Nearly all US high school students take at least one career and technical class. More than 10% of all public high school credits are earned in career & technical education, according to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).

Operations involve both instruction and administration. Instruction expenses include faculty salaries, course materials, lease and occupancy costs, and educational equipment. Administration expenses include direct marketing, finance and accounting, admission expenses, bad debt expense, and legal fees.

Technology Providers of technical training courses must regularly review technological advances, and upgrade curriculum and equipment accordingly.

Anything related to STEM/STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) is a hot ticket right now as many view STEM-related subjects as the future. But they also have to engage children in a way that is much more fun than school, and the companies on the [site provided] list are the ones who have figured out how to make that happen and scale it.

These franchise opportunities have also proven to be largely “recession proof” because parents are always reluctant to give up anything they see as benefitting their children, even when times are tough.

Bright Outlook:

Much potential exists to reach neighboring communities in this medium-density suburban area; contract with a couple of cities to become an approved vendor for operation at schools and community centers. Some communities are mandated to rent these facilities when not in use.
Offering online courses hold great potential for expanding teachable hours and profitability during the school year.

New programs to be offered in the fall of 2019 include syntax coding, code python, java script, and a free robotics competition club. It is already creating a lot of buzz.

Offer parents annual memberships that package school year and summer programs; add benefits, create VP events with exclusive access and include days of private tutoring.

One means of scaling the business is to make it ready to scale by attracting potential teachers via an online teacher portal. This portal would include a video training and questionnaire which would include all information necessary to teach a complete year of robotics instruction.
Better and more consistent marketing would go a long way to increase business. To this point, the Seller has done all of the (limited) marketing himself, from flyer design to publishing. Google SEO has also just begun. To improve on this, implement an extensive marketing strategy including promoting and requesting google reviews from parents.
