Listen to Josh Brown of the Franchise Euphoria podcast interview Peter Hans, President of Discovery Map International, regarding franchise opportunities on the latest episode:
Identifying and Growing Your Niche with Peter Hans of Discovery Map
Peter Hans started his career as a commercial banker based in Boston. He traveled around New England and studied at night for his MBA at Babson College. When he received his degree, he moved to Zurich, Switzerland, and became an investment banker. He lived there for six years and later London for six more. During that time, he was fortunate enough to travel to most every major European capital and also to Australia, Asia, and South America.
Shortly before leaving London, he married his wife and they moved back to the States to start a family. The lure of purchasing a company that merges travel maps and franchise ownership was two-fold for Peter: throughout his travels, he was always looking for a resource that provided quick and easy-to-find information about all of the businesses and services a place has to offer. Discovery Map International is exactly that resource. The second part of the equation is that he truly enjoys owning his own business, nurturing it, and watching it succeed, grow, and profit. It stands to reason that he not only owns the company as the franchisor, but also has jumped into the exciting shoes of franchise ownership himself.
