Trusting the Goddard Family

Some of our most valued franchise owners were once in your shoes, looking for a new path to continue the legacy they had worked so hard to create. Here's what a few of them have to say about making the choice to become part of the Goddard family. 

Goddard Owner: Leisa Byars

When Leisa opened her first Goddard School location in 2010, it was at the end of an economic recession in the United States. As the country regained confidence, Leisa and her family capitalized by becoming a staple of their community. As a business leader of her Goddard School, Leisa’s curriculum goals were fully met by her formally-trained educational staff, allowing her to focus solely on the business aspect of her school.

With the flexibility that comes with owning a Goddard School franchise, Leisa was also able to focus on her family. She travels with and spends quality time with the people that matter most to her.

Goddard Owners: Jyoti & Gagan Verma

Jyoti and Gagan’s Goddard School story started when they were looking for an early childhood educational center for their daughter. After touring schools across their area, Jyoti had a realization: there’s a missing supply of high-quality childhood development centers in their area.

That realization was followed closely by another: she could help supply that need.

When Jyoti and Gagan opened their Goddard School location, they noticed the benefits immediately. They made a reliable income despite an uncertain national economic outlook. They relished helping their community on a daily basis. What’s more, they could do it all without ever having been trained in educational fields. They received everything they needed to start their own successful business.

Goddard Owners: Sumara & Imran Ahmad

Sumara and Imran had careers in investment banking and Wall Street. Their children attended a local Goddard School and they liked the learning environment provided. Sumara and Imran began to discuss their ideal scenario for a work-life balance and what legacy they wanted for their family. They saw an opportunity to take their passion for early childcare education and give back to the parents in the local community by opening a Goddard School.

Even though Sumara and Imran came from different career backgrounds, they felt supported starting a Goddard School because of the resources and systems in place. The educational support and overall operational guidance helped build themselves up to being business owners.
