The Pinnells acquired the maps on August 1.
Owners of Treasure Coast Seltzer Works, the Pinnells first became familiar with Discovery Map through the territories and family vacations where the company sells its seltzer products from Melbourne, Florida to the Florida Keys.
“We’ve seen Discovery Map prints throughout our travels and in the territories where sell our seltzer and loved them,” said Ryan Pinnell. “When Simi was looking to go back to work once our three boys had grown, she wanted something that would be a challenge professionally yet offer the flexibility in schedule to be there for our boys after school. That’s when we started exploring business opportunities that would allow us to keep our schedules open.”
Adds Simi, “When the Discovery Map franchises became available in West Palm Beach, Key West, Delray Beach and St. Augustine, it made sense from so many perspectives. Business-wise, we liked the idea of taking over established maps in established territories. Personally, the flexibility in schedule fits in well with our lifestyle. The boys will even be helping out in the business distributing maps.”
