How Our Franchisees Feel About Being Discovery Point Owners
When asked about their experience with Discovery Point, our franchisees have a lot to say. Many of them touch on the freedom and flexibility they feel as business owners. Others express gratitude for the support and resources they’ve received from our corporate team and describe the growth they’ve experienced throughout their journey of business ownership. Most importantly, almost all of our franchisees emphasize the pure joy they feel as they make a positive impact on children’s lives through the work they do each and every day.
Here’s a look at some of our franchisees’ thoughts about these subjects in their own words.
Outstanding Corporate Support
According to Gregory Burdett, owner of Discovery Point Zoar Road, the fact that he would be receiving hands-on support as a business owner was one of the most important factors in his decision to become a franchisee with Discovery Point. “We were looking for places that offered us support and resources,” he explains. “We looked at other franchises and we settled on Discovery Point specifically because we felt supported from the minute we got there.”
Yvette Rijo, from Discovery Point Roswell, echoes these feelings and elaborates on how she especially benefited from assistance as she was just getting into her role as a business owner. “The training I received before I opened was very thorough and hands-on,” she says. In addition, she expresses gratitude for Discovery Point’s efforts to help her expand her skill set and knowledge of the business world. “I have learned and have grown over the last decade of owning my own business. I have felt full support from the corporate office any time that I was in need of advice and assistance in handling different situations.”
Freedom and Flexibility
Many of our franchisees first decided to become business owners because they wanted more freedom and flexibility in their lives. We understand this desire wholeheartedly. Whether you’re a parent who wants to be able to carve time out of your workday to be with your children, or you simply want to have control over the hours you work, you’ll have the power to set your schedule as a Discovery Point owner.
You’ll also benefit from flexibility in the way you run your center. While all of our centers undergo Quality Assurance checks to ensure they’re adhering to our high standards of security, safety, and child-focused learning, we do give owners the opportunity to personalize their business and follow their passions to transform their child care center into a community-oriented space.
Michelle Malizioso, the owner of Discovery Point Howell Ferry, touches on this when she says that becoming a Discovery Point owner “seemed like the perfect opportunity to utilize my passion for working with children and families and also my business expertise.” Malizioso goes on to explain why she loves being able to personalize how her center is run: “Every activity that we do, we get to plan, so it’s exciting… We can impact the lesson plans and what the children are learning every day,” which enables her to stay hands-on and engaged with her students.
Joy-Filled Work Days
Our daycare franchise locations are operated by enthusiastic entrepreneurs who are excited to get to work with children and families on a daily basis. Robbin Plesher, owner of Discovery Point Jones Bridge, sums it up nicely when she says, “My days are spent encouraging children’s love of learning. It doesn’t get any better than that!”
Yvette, from Discovery Point Roswell, also explains how her love of working with children provides her with a sense of satisfaction that simply doesn’t come with work in other industries: “The hugs, kisses, and excitement that children display brings me true joy. I also feel satisfaction as I am providing them a safe, fun, and educational center to be in while mom and dad are at work.” Michelle, from Discovery Point Howell Ferry, agrees: “I don’t think that there’s any other job where you can walk out of the door and have a day full of hugs and smiles and laughter.”
