Join us and share the joy of cooking with kids!

Own a Tiny Chefs Child Education Franchise.

Cooking teaches kids valuable skills that they can carry with them through life. Children practice basic math when they measure ingredients, reading comprehension as they follow a recipe, team building as they work in groups, and they also build a strong foundation for healthy eating. All of these skills are essential to building the adults of tomorrow.

Tiny Chefs is the premier franchise offering children, and their parents, cooking parties created just for kids, classes and camps in offsite locations, after school programs and summer camps. Our cooking events are a fun way for kids to flex their creative muscles, spend time working in peer groups, and best of all, a great way to introduce them to the joy of cooking and baking!

Tiny Chefs is a totally mobile business. We go where the kids are, and this helps keep your investment low and your business flexible to grow as big as you want to be!

Meet the Founder

Anna Reeves

Business Management and Development & Mindset Curriculum Development

Anna was inspired to create Tiny Chefs by combining her experience teaching young children with her passion for cooking and baking. Tiny Chef’s cooking classes and birthday parties support Anna’s philosophy that children deserve the opportunity to explore food, nutrition, and cooking at their individual pace of learning. As a child, Anna grew up baking with her mother, trying out new recipes for friends and family. Anna continues to develop her skills through various cooking and baking classes, and cooks with her three daughters.

Anna Reeves has been included in the Franchise Dictionary Magazine’s 50 Women of Wonder (WoW) 2020 Issue!

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is “learning through cooking”. We encourage children to discover the joys of cooking while obtaining basic educational skills and culinary techniques.

Our instructors teach kids to follow recipes, measure and combine ingredients, and work together on a team all while promoting personal creativity. We introduce new foods, new ways to enjoy old favorites and focus on trying something different with new ingredients all the time.

We strive to instill health-conscious values, mindfulness and working as a team in the kids we serve to develop their confidence. We know from experience that Tiny Chefs’ kids experiment with their own creations at home, with their family and even their friends in the future.
