My passion in life has always revolved around children: teaching them, nurturing them, caring for them. Even before I became a mom, I loved kids and I knew that someday I wanted to work with children. Little did I know, I’d eventually be a mom to lots of my own children. What a blessing that has been.
That’s one reason why I found the story of Cory & Summer Bullock so exciting.
Cory & Summer were just 27 and 24 when they opened their Kiddie Academy franchise in 2008, and even as the youngest franchisees in the system, they have achieved tremendous success.
Cory had been in the Navy, and when his time was coming to an end, he and his wife, Summer, started looking into opportunities to open their own business. The researched several different types of franchise industries. Most of the franchise companies they looked into closed the doors to them because of their young age. The Bullocks came across Kiddie Academy on an internet search and requested more information. Soon afterward, they went to the Kiddie Academy headquarters and met with the corporate staff. After six months of searching, Cory and Summer knew they had found the right place for them. They could finally achieve their dream of being business owners together and their love for children thanks to Kiddie Academy.
When the Bullocks first opened their Kiddie Academy franchise, they were faced with the challenge of establishing themselves in their local community and proving that they weren’t running just another “day-care.”
They accepted the challenge and ran with it. They have become recognized and respected in their community and have formed solid relationships with the families they serve all while maintaining high enrollment numbers. They’ve watched children grow and advance, and they hope to continue expanding their current academy with the possibility of opening a new location in the future.
I admire the Bullocks and all they’ve been able to accomplish. They are proof positive that age doesn’t matter. A little hard work can help make your dreams come true.
