iCode Opens in Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH – Kids and teens in Pittsburgh can now take a “byte” out of the world of coding.

As the technology industry continues to grow and power the everyday lives of Americans, there is often still a gap in the average curricula of today’s schools when it comes to teaching coding and computer science skills to children. Well, not any longer for kids and teens in Pittsburgh.

iCode, a national computer science education franchise, announced today that it is opening a new location in Pittsburgh. Online classes are currently available for students K-12. The Pittsburgh iCode will open its brick-and-mortar location in the coming months.

“We’re excited to be offering online classes so soon to kids in our area,” said Felix Matathias, the experienced software engineering manager who is bringing the iCode location to the area. “Kids have been out of classrooms for so long – this will be a nice way to keep them engaged and productive over the summer.”

With Matathias’ diverse background in software engineering, self-driving technology and nuclear physics, he is well equipped to operate the new location. The location will offer STEAM-based computer science education through proprietary curricula and a signature BELT program. The progressive BELT program graduates students to more advanced levels of coding and is built to keep students motivated to continue developing their skills, similar to how belts function in the martial arts. With a convenient class schedule catering to any family’s schedule, after-school, online, summer and holiday programs will all be held at iCode Pittsburgh.

In addition to offering iCode services to families in the Pittsburgh market, iCode of Pittsburgh and its owners are seeking to connect with local schools and youth programs to explore potential online learning partnerships.

“We’re thrilled that Felix has opened his online classes to students in the Pittsburgh area,” said Abid Abedi, founder and CEO of iCode. “Now, students can have the opportunity to learn often overlooked skills that can benefit them for a future in tech. With custom programs built for every experience level, we’re looking forward to seeing how the kids and teens at Felix’s location develop their skills.”

iCode differentiates itself in the fast-growing computer science education industry with its state-of-the-art facilities and proprietary curricula. Through its robust menu of offerings and several classrooms in each location, the brand is able to serve students of all skill levels with programs that teach students how to build games, apps, websites, and work with robotics. iCode also offers the unique iSports professional gaming league with competitions taking place after school, once per week for a five-week period. In addition to the tactical abilities coding education offers, students benefit from developing soft skills, including critical thinking and problem-solving.

Today’s announcement follows an eventful year for the brand, with upcoming openings in Boise, Idaho; Pittsburgh; Bellevue, Washington; Moorestown and Bridgewater, New Jersey; The Colony, Sugarland, Leander and Murphy, Texas; Troy, Michigan; and Goodyear, Arizona.

Leadership in Crisis: iCode’s Quick Pivot to Online Summer Camp Offerings

iCode provides seven revenue streams that assist our franchisees in ramping up businesses, including summer camps. Now that summer is officially underway, iCode has camps available both on site at select locations (observing strict sanitization and social distancing measures) and with live online instruction. Our leadership team has been aggressive in outlining our summer programs to ensure the camps are safe, accessible and can continue to generate revenue for our franchisees in the wake of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Historically, our summer camps have been a major component of the iCode franchise opportunity. In 2018, we provided eight summer camp offerings and averaged 165 campers per location. Just one year later, we doubled the number of open iCode locations and expanded to 14 summer camp offerings, averaging more than 300 campers per location.

Last year, our iCode Allen Fairview location, which opened in January 2019, saw one of our most successful summers yet. This location partnered with the Allen ISD STEAM Center that had opened up just over 2 miles away, creating an additional 130,000 square feet of space. Through this partnership, we were able to host additional summer camps offsite at their campus. We successfully hosted 240 campers at the Allen Fairview iCode location and an additional 300 campers at the Allen ISD STEAM Center for a total of 540 campers – escalating the results of one of our newest iCode locations during its first year of operation. Since then, the owners bought an additional existing iCode franchise and established two locations within their first 12 months of opening.

With the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was important that our team pivoted quickly to not only create a safe learning space for our students this summer, but to also help our franchisees support profitability through this revenue stream. Our franchisees have been very vocal about our approach in facilitating this year’s summer camps, extending positive feedback on our team’s leadership during crisis and the proactive measures taken to ensure the camps could continue as planned.

We continuously meet our franchisees with support where they need it most so they gain the most out of their iCode franchising experience – whether in the midst of a global pandemic or during another average day.
