Zaniac is a leading Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) education franchisor in the United States where learning is fun. Founded in 2010 by professor, author and social entrepreneur Paul Zane Pilzer, Zaniac is headquartered in Asheville, North Carolina and has served more than 50,000 students to date.
A Zaniac Kids franchise offers kids from grades K-8 a broad range of fun and enriching STEAM programs such as Coding, Robotics, Engineering, Math, Reading, Design, Chess and Game-Based Learning MinecraftTM. Zaniac STEAM Programs are delivered year-round at locations throughout a community in place such as schools, churches, community centers as after-school programs, evening and weekend programs, school break camps, summer camps, birthday parties and fun events like parents’ night out or chess club. Programs also can be delivered as part of a school’s teaching day as an elective, in-school field trips and workshops, for teacher professional development, and incorporated into a home school learning plan.
Zaniac’s STEAM programs utilize a state-of-the-art curriculum presented to students by instructors through a customized pedagogy that combines fun, peer-based learning and hands-on engagement with the latest technology. (For example, build robots, learn how to code, explore space.) Classes are typically 90-minutes with 5 to 10 students each, allowing for personalized attention. Parents can receive emails after each class sharing their child’s progress.
The Zaniac Learning Management and Operating System (LMOS) is our turnkey, cloud-based solution that allows Zaniac owners to concentrate on sales and improving their customer's experience rather than operational friction points such as scheduling and accounting.
The Zaniac team is passionate about improving the lives of students and parents in communities across the country. As a Franchise owner you will make a significant, positive impact on the families and schools in your community — both in the lives of the students you serve and the entire community by raising the bar on STEAM education. Bringing Zaniac to your community creates real, long-lasting improvements in the outlook, confidence, and academic success of students.
Zaniac features an environment and pedagogy unlike any other educational business or school. Parents love it because Zaniac provides real academic advantage to their children. Kids love it because Zaniac lets them interact with technology and math in a hands-on environment that feels just like playing with friends. Learning has never been this fun!
Zaniac is leveraging the strong growth potential of the educational enrichment market, especially in STEAM fields such as math and computer science. The founder of Zaniac, Professor Paul Zane Pilzer, predicts that the global educational enrichment (“getting ahead”) industry will soon exceed the $100 billion tutoring (“catching up”) industry. Every community needs a Zaniac, and you can be the first to bring Zaniac to yours.
STEAM education is critical to the future success and prosperity of every child and our nation. Zaniac stays ahead of the technological curve, constantly updating and adding new curricula to its current programs in coding, robotics, engineering, 3D printing and science.
Zaniac employs a business model that leverages state-of-the-art technology to maximize the efficiency of management, communication and operations. As an owner, you will receive access to the Zaniac corporate management team for support.
“Zaniac helps children understand how the world was built and gives them the confidence and tools to make it better.”— Paul Zane Pilzer, Founder
