Nine well-known brands are partnering with KidZania for the opening of the Frisco location this November at Stonebriar Centre.

Bic; MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes; Pie Five Pizza; Planet Fitness; Southern Methodist University; Spotify; Takis; Texas Health Resources; and WFAA, North Texas’ ABC affiliate, will offer curriculum-based activities to give children a glimpse of future career possibilities.

“Exposure leads to opportunity,” KidZania USA CEO Greg Stevens said in a statement. “KidZania’s global model is staying on the cutting edge of experiential learning by collaborating with industry partners to empower, nurture curiosity and educate in a real city built for kids.”

With 27 locations worldwide, KidZania is a child-sized city with a curriculum-based, interactive experience designed to enhance children’s social and emotional skills. Children will have the opportunity to test out more than 100 careers, such as a firefighter, journalist or chef.

The 85,000-square-foot facility at Stonebriar Centre will be the first in the U.S. Other locations are planned for the Chicago, New York City and Los Angeles areas.
