In this episode, we talk to Mad Science Group president and CEO Shafik Mina, and franchisee Kyle Upton, who has more than 20 years of experience in franchising as he owns two locations in St. Catharines and London, Ontario.

Mad Science Group is a science enrichment program for children that has 165 franchise locations in more than 20 countries worldwide.

Here, Shafik and Kyle share:

  • Why franchisees having passion for the industry they join is so vital to their success and overall happiness as business owners
  • The new Crayola Imagine Arts Academy franchising opportunity that Mad Science Group created to reach children with an interest in the arts
  • And how the COVID-19 pandemic pushed the brand to transition from an in person and hands-on learning approach to an entirely virtual process that’s been implemented for the past year, among much more.
