When we purchased the Crystal Coast Map five years ago, the thought of building a lifestyle around our business never occurred to us. I recently attended a Discovery Map Franchisee Conference and heard a presentation about how one franchisee and his wife did exactly that over a 20 year ownership of maps in Vermont and Florida. I left the meeting a believer and can now say with confidence, that you can do it too! Our map location provides us ample opportunity to discover the Crystal Coast and the wonderful communities like New Bern, NC. We love the beaches and the outdoors. Biking, kayaking and fishing are favorite pastimes for us. Many of our advertisers share out passion for the outdoors, so supporting local businesses is easy to do!
