Investment and earnings

Fun Science franchises offer a low investment opportunity to run your own business. Exclusive UK territories cost just £4,995 set up fee with £150 a month maintenance fees (rising to £250 per month in year 3). There are no hidden costs, we do not take a percentage of your turnover and you do not have to purchase replacement equipment and materials through us enabling you to keep costs low (though we do offer a shop service if you would like this).

Ongoing premium online marketing


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. It’s completely up to you!

Costs do vary slightly according to the location of the event but we have included rough profits for each of our services below.

Crazy Chemical Celebration Party (45 minutes) - £74.50

Sweets and Surprises Party (45 minutes) - £96.50

Fantastic Physics Party (60 minutes) - £116.50

Chemical/Electrical Extravaganza Party (70 minutes) -£133.50

Complete Package Party (100 minutes)- £180.50

After school club (5 x 60 minute sessions) - £517.50

Workshop (60 minutes) - £124.50

Fun Day (Block of 5 x 5 hour days) - £2172.50

If you decided to work part time and run 2 after school clubs per half term, 2 birthday parties per week and 6 groups of fun days per year you could earn a yearly average of £31,866 before overheads (insurance, office costs and any additional marketing you choose to do - roughly £100 a month). If you choose to take on staff you can earn much more than this.

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 - 1 month after launching
