Over 2 decade established professional Art Academy providing fantastic art portfolio program is available for acquisition. Established & acquired in early 1990's by the current owner of the business which was later relocated in 2006 towards North Dallas. No direct competition in the immediate market area, but few art schools are nearby that focus on art classes for fun/hobby purposes while this art academy is focused on providing a great art portfolio for students going to college. Large portion of the customer base consists of middle school and high school students since this business provides these students with great portfolios to transfer into a good art college/university. Sales were $300,000 - $320,000/year from 2013 to 2015 and have shown a steady increase as the area becomes more populated by middle class citizens. The best source for marketing this business in the current situation is word of mouth and referrals since parents in the local area have been using this business for their children from 2 decades ago. Fund-raising is an excellent source of marketing that is also done to reach out to many various private schools nearby and the students who attend these private schools see this art academy as good source of resume material for college application. Operation hours are 24 hours each week and extension of operation time through morning classes will benefit this business greatly including the added benefit of local marketing. Each program varies in term length (3 months, 6 months, and 12 months) and degree of course work difficulty (1 - 4 levels) that is customized to each student’s strengths & weaknesses. This art academy differs from other art studios which focus on casual art lessons while this academy focuses on creating a solid foundation for aspiring art students.
