Learn About Young Chef's Academy Franchises
Who We Are
Julie Burleson and Suzy Nettles, founders of YCA, are two moms who love cooking,
love children, and love a good time in the kitchen! Since YCA's founding in
April of 2003, the school has grown from a weekend-only operation, conducting
classes and parties out of a restaurant, to a full-time school operating out of
its own storefront.
At Young Chefs™ Academy, Julie and Suzy teach culinary skills that build upon
each other to progress into more complicated food preparation. While learning
such skills is the main ingredient at YCA, Julie and Suzy add a heap of kitchen
safety, a scoop of etiquette, a handful of napkin folding and table setting, a
pinch of menu planning, and laughter to taste. Their kid-friendly kitchen
classroom also provides a "real" setting so that the students can use what they
learn in their own homes.
A Hot Opportunity
As the popularity of kid-focused stores and services grows, you can bet
the children's franchise biz is a promising place to play.
Hot in the beginning, prosperous now and promising for the future, the
children's franchise industry has attracted long-term players who have left
their marks, have achieved financial success and now offer a wealth of insight
for people wanting to get into this industry.

Stir It Up!
Julie and Suzy want to see families back in the kitchen, whether it be exploring
exotic cuisine or baking cookies. The kitchen is the pulse of the home.... where
we learn about life and each other. They believe that by enjoying the process of
preparing food together, it will also be the place where special memories begin.
As Julie says, "It's about making the home and the time together special. We
live in a world that is geared towards fast and what's next." Julie and Suzy
say, "Young Chefs Academy takes us out of that fast lane and teaches us to enjoy
the ride along the way."
