Low Overhead and Inexpensive, Easily Accessible Materials
When considering which franchise to buy, it is important to consider the price of operating the business itself. Many STEM franchises require the purchase of pricey items such as computers and building sets in addition to their franchise fee. The high cost of these materials can make it more difficult to scale your business to accommodate large numbers of students at once (which Challenge Island does effortlessly). Pricey items can also mean higher upkeep and replacement costs. Challenge Island materials, on the other hand, are readily available at stores like Target, Wal-Mart and dollar stores. The low price and accessibility of our materials in combination with the lack of a storefront overhead make Challenge Island a truly affordable business to run.
