Multi-Unit Franchisee Insight – Formative Influences & Key Accomplishments Part 3

Multi-Unit Franchisee Insight – Formative Influences & Key Accomplishments Part 3

We talk to successful multi-unit operators regularly here at Franchise Update Media. These busy on-the-go people share great insight and wisdom with us through our profile stories in Multi-Unit Franchisee magazine. Here, from our archives, are some insightful responses from some of these franchisees.

 

Formative influences/events:
Serving in the military and deploying 11 times. Over the years of being gone, I often was faced with remembering what the most important things are in life. Being away gave me a true appreciation for family and the desire to succeed.

Key accomplishments:
Opening our first Tropical Smoothie Cafe! It was a very long time in the making. We feel very accomplished that we finally have units open and operating. I am almost done with my bachelor’s degree from American Military University. I have four classes left and I have been chipping away at it. Although I haven’t accomplished it yet, I feel good that I am almost done.
 Rylan Miller, multi-unit franchisee of Tropical Smoothie Café

 

Formative influences/events:
I’ve been fortunate to have so many strong female role models who have made a tremendous impact on my life. My mother was my earliest influence. She immigrated to Africa from India and is undoubtedly the most resourceful person I know. Even during times of shortages, she would always find creative ways to provide for our family. She encouraged me to be persistent, especially when it came to education. She used to tell me, “Make sure you study. Education will always be with you.” That inspired my lifelong love for learning. I see the same determination and discipline that she had in my daughters. I’m blown away by how hard they work. I watch them succeed, and it makes me want to work even harder. Becoming a mom was a life-changing event for me. Never one to compromise in any aspects of my life, I had to find a way to have a meaningful career while remaining present for my family. My previous career in corporate retail came at a cost. If I were to grow in that role, I needed to work longer hours and spend time away from my young daughters. Primrose Schools offered a perfect balance for me. With Primrose, I have the flexibility to prioritize time with my family, while I pursue a career where making a difference in the lives of others is at the core of what I do. I was a mom who needed a safe and trusted place where my children would receive quality education while I worked. I have great empathy for the moms and dads who entrust our schools with their children because I know exactly how they feel. Even though my daughters are now responsible young women, the parent in me never stops. I am constantly thinking about ways I can be the best mom I can for them, and I know the parents we serve have similar experiences. As parents, we sometimes feel guilty when leaving our children to take care of other needs, but as a Primrose franchise owner, I’m hoping to help ease that guilt and give parents the peace of mind that comes from knowing their children are well taken care of and happy. As I’ve grown from a Primrose parent to a multi-unit franchise owner, my relationship with Jo Kirchner, CEO of Primrose Schools, continues to bring greater meaning to my life. Specifically, her relentless drive to make a difference in the world by serving organizations like Save the Children continues to inspire me to give back to my own community.

Key accomplishments:
In Zambia, where I grew up, education is a luxury. As an immigrant from Africa, my greatest accomplishment was coming to the U.S. for school. My education set the stage for my entire life and influences everything I do today.
  Pratiksha Rigley, multi-unit franchisee of Primrose Schools
