Financial consideration

Our ownership arrangements differ across our vast international network. Some of our owners operate multiple schools or have the rights to develop Maple Bear schools across several countries while others are single school owners and operators.

Given the varied arrangements the financial considerations for a Maple Bear school owner range widely. At a minimum, the financial investment considers the following:


The initial Franchise Fee covers the services our team provides related to implementation and project planning, real estate selection, purchasing support, training and opening support. This fee is dependent on the country and expansion agreement.


Our agreements include an ongoing payment based on a percentage of student fees collected. Royalties cover our continuous assistance including training, operations, marketing, supplier relations and periodic evaluations of the schools and operating systems. A Marketing Development Fund will be applied once there are several schools in a given country.


The costs of starting a Maple Bear school may include the buildout of a new school or the conversion of an existing space. There are also the furnishings as well as the academic and play resources to consider.
