The Discovery Map team will be manning Booth 606.
Discovery Map International is the leading provider of curated maps and guides to top tourist attractions, cities and towns throughout North America. Founded in 1977, the company began franchising in 1992. Today, Discovery Map International has maps in 132 communities with 91 franchise owners.
“The International Franchise Expo is the largest showcase for franchise opportunities in the country, with more than 400 franchisors presenting,” said Peter Hans, president of Discovery Map International. “The Discovery Map franchise opportunity is a little bit different than most and we look forward to sharing our story and how our franchisees have taken our opportunity and run with it.”
Discovery Map franchise owners come from many walks of life. Some are corporate refugees or semi-retired individuals looking to build a business and fund their full retirement. Others include recent college grads, as well as mothers (and fathers) looking to build a business with hours around the kids’ school schedules.
“Discovery Map is truly a unique and appealing franchise opportunity. It’s not a 9-to-5 gig and you don’t necessarily have to work 12 months a year to run a successful franchise. You just have to be willing to work hard when you work,” said Hans. “We look forward to meeting like-minded entrepreneurs at the IFE.”
