Daycare Franchise Opportunity: Cape Coral
As one of the safest, friendliest, and fastest growing cities in the U.S., Cape Coral is a great place to raise a young family. And that makes it a particularly attractive market for a daycare franchise. Recently, Discovery Point identified Cape Coral as a premier market for our daycare franchise opportunity. Now, we’re looking for franchisees to help us build the Discovery Point brand in the Cape Coral market.
Getting to Know Cape Coral
Cape Coral is known as a Waterfront Wonderland, boasting over 400 miles of canals — more than any other city in the world. With a population of approximately 190,000 residents, it’s also southwest Florida’s largest city. But Cape Coral has a lot more going for it than just its waterways and size.
Over the past decade, it has consistently been named one of America’s fastest growing cities. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, only six other metro areas in the country experienced faster growth than the Cape Coral–Fort Myers metro area. What’s more, Cape Coral was recently named one of the 50 safest cities in which to raise a child in the U.S.
As a leading destination for retirees, Cape Coral’s demographics skew older than other cities, with a median age of 45.9 years old. But when you look at the city’s demographics by age, you’ll find that the largest age group—roughly 22% of the city’s population—is residents between the ages of 25 and 44. Furthermore, 18% of the population is under the age of 18.
With its steady rate of growth, its family-friendly status, and a vibrant economy, we believe that Cape Coral represents an ideal market for our daycare franchise opportunity.
