Get Up and Running with Discovery Point
Purchasing a franchise location is simple and straightforward with Discovery Point. We’ve narrowed down the process to 10 easy steps, so you can embark on your journey of business ownership without any hassle.
It’s this approach to business and our commitment to serving our franchise owners that have made us a top franchise in one of the country’s fastest-growing industries.
Step 1: Inquiry
The first step to purchasing one of our franchises is to fill out and submit an inquiry form online. Our team will get back to you right away with more information.
Step 2: Introductory Call
After reviewing your form submission, our franchise team will give you a call to discuss the many options we have available. During this call, we can answer preliminary questions and help you to better understand our franchise offering.
Step 3: Application & Background Check
Should you decide to move forward after your introductory call, we’ll have you complete an application and undergo a full background check.
We’ll also provide our company’s franchise disclosure document (FDD) for review. This document offers a comprehensive overview of what becoming a Discovery Point franchisee entails.
Step 4: Attending a Discovery Day
Our Discovery Days allow potential franchisees to get an up-close-and-personal look at what to expect when they choose to purchase one of our child care franchises. These events typically include presentations from our franchise team and meetings with some of our franchise owners. You’ll also have the chance to visit Discovery Point centers to see how they operate on a daily basis.
Step 5: Signing the Franchise Agreement
Now comes the life-changing moment of signing on the dotted line! When executing the Franchise Agreement, you’ll also pay the initial franchise fee. Fortunately, we have one of the most cost-competitive fees in the industry.
Step 6: Securing Financing
If you need support with financing for the development of your business, you can partner with a lender at this point to secure the necessary funds.
Step 7: Site Selection
When purchasing one of our child care franchises, you’ll also get the opportunity to make a fruitful real estate investment. This means you can own your center’s property and enjoy a greater level of investment security and equity benefits for years to come. We’ll guide you in selecting a site for your business to help you choose the best, most advantageous location for a successful child care center.
Step 8: Center Construction
We have precise specifications for the construction of Discovery Point centers to ensure the safety and security of students as well as the effectiveness of our teaching strategies. You can rely on us to support you with every detail of the construction of your center and assist you with meeting state licensing requirements.
Step 9: Training
While you may have a passion for children, you may not know exactly what it takes to run an effective child care center. That’s where our training program comes in. All new owners undergo four weeks of in-depth classroom and on-site training. Upon completion, you’ll be ready to roll and feel fully confident in your new position as the owner of a child care franchise.
Step 10: Opening for Business
Our corporate support team will work alongside you in the lead-up to launching your business, and we’ll also be there to help you celebrate your grand opening. However, that’s just the beginning!
You can count on us to provide you with continuous operational and marketing support throughout your journey as a business owner. In addition, we offer regular Quality Assurance support visits to ensure each of our franchisees is able to meet our renowned standards for child care as they bring their own vision and drive to their individual child care centers.
