Investment and Earnings

For a one off franchise fee of £4995 plus £150 a month (increasing to £250 in year 3) we are offering you the chance to run your own successful Fun Science business in your location.

A Fun Science franchise gives you the flexibility to work as little or as much as you would like. You will be provided with all the resources and training to run birthday parties, workshops, holiday clubs and after school clubs. However, if you choose to focus on one service or to miss out one service all together, you can still earn a full time wage working part time hours.

For example, a parent may choose to run more holiday clubs so that they can take their children with them or more in school workshops and home education groups so that they are home when their children start and finish school each day. Many branch owners also employ staff to take on the running of some services, leaving them free to earn money whilst enjoying time with their families. It’s completely up to you!

If you decided to work part time and run two after school clubs/home education groups per half term (two days a week) two birthday parties per week (one day a week) and six groups of fun days per year you could earn a yearly average of £31,866 before overheads.

As a home based business your overheads will be limited to insurance (roughly £150 per year), phone costs (roughly £120 per year) and marketing. It is completely up to you how much you spend on marketing but we suggest budgeting £3,500 per year for online and print advertising. Fun Science branches also run workshops and one-off events to generate additional income and in many cases have taken on staff to reduce their working hours. Sounds too good to be true? Read on to see what our newest branch owner Magnetic Milla had to say about her earnings just two months after start-up. If you would like any more information on how these figures have been generated please do not hesitate to ask.

“I’ve not been pushing the marketing because I’m pretty busy with my PhD at the moment, so I am aiming to slowly ramp things up as I have more time available. Despite having done limited marketing so far, I’ve still got two after schools clubs in Jan/ Feb, both of which are fully booked, and four parties during this time period. I expect these to bring in around £1700 from mid Jan to mid Feb, before tax and business expenses. In March I have five science week workshops, with another school currently thinking about booking. I’ve also got a further seven workshops booked in for June.” – Magnetic Milla, Fun Science Sheffield (After running her branch for 3 months).
