We go together like peas and carrots.

A Sticky Fingers Cooking® franchise is a unique opportunity to own and manage your own business for a low initial investment. Our Initial Franchise Fee includes two weeks of pre-opening training with ongoing support.

This training will cover all of the daily operations for managing the business with a focus on our proprietary technology platform—Sticky Fingers Cooking DASH®—used to schedule, book classes, payroll, manage enrollment, and much more.

You will learn the following:

  • Sticky Fingers Cooking Lesson Plans® and recipes

  • Advertising and creating partnerships
  • How to develop a local marketing plan using our effective marketing system

We will also explain our best practices for:

  • Financial management
  • Setting goals (and how to accomplish them)
  • Hiring and managing your team from a home-based office
