A cooking school without walls

A home-grown Colorado company

We have the recipe to ignite a lifetime love of healthy cooking and adventurous eating in kids—and now it’s your turn to inspire the next generation of chefs. 

Sticky Fingers Cooking created a unique cooking school for children that operates in schools, camps, libraries, recreation centers, and even private homes. After expanding locations in Colorado, Texas, and Illinois, we knew that more families could benefit by franchising this business. 

If you want to combine the joys of cooking, eating, and make learning about good nutrition, food history, math, science, and global cultures fun and part of your mission, start your own business with us. Cooking is an essential life skill and when kids stay after school to learn more, parents are happy too.
