Snapshot into ownership

  • Be Your Own Boss: Owning a Starz Franchise is the opportunity to create your own destiny while positively impacting children in your community. Our owners love the flexibility and freedom that comes with working from home. Most owners work part-time, allowing space in your life for the other things you love.

  • You're Not Starting From Scratch: We have spent 15 years creating and testing the Starz model. When you buy a Starz franchise you can be confident you are getting systems, processes, and procedures that work. Upon purchase, we provide you ALL the tools you need to build a successful program. Your work ethic combined with the support you'll receive from Starz is a recipe for unstoppable growth.

  • Be The Light In Your Community: As a Shine Maker you are impacting children directly by providing fundamental skills through our specialized classes. Starz builds self-esteem, confidence, and character by providing children with the skills they need to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. By bringing our classes on-site to the schools, we are helping parents not to have to run their children around after work and on the weekends. Be the light in your community, there’s always room for more SHINE!

  • Growth Opportunity: After you've successfully launched a Starz Franchise in your area, you can purchase additional zip codes to expand your reach. The potential to grow your program is endless!

  • Support: We have your back! Starz provides online and in-person training as well as continuous support. Initial and continuous training, starting materials, and support are included in a purchase of a Starz franchise.

A message from a Shine Maker!

“I know I am making a difference in the lives of these young kids every day. They get so excited to see me when I arrive for class and even more if they see me out in the community."

Michele Catalano, Starz of Martin County
