New Code Wiz Franchisee!We are happy to welcome our newest franchisee, Joy Jones, and congratulate her on the opening of Code Wiz Houston, TX. Welcome to the family! “I was born in Michigan, raised in Oklahoma and have lived in Houston for the past 22 years. I have an undergrad degree is Psychology and a Master of Liberal Arts in Leadership/Management. Most of my professional career has been in the Oil & Gas Industry, in various positions but mostly in IT and Training. During this time, I did school outreach to get kids interested in STEM. I was so desperate to get kids excited about a STEM career path that at the end of 2021, I became an FAA Part 107 certified drone pilot. I was sitting around trying to figure out how I was going to use my passion for kids STEM/STEAM outreach. This past January, I became part of the “Great Resignation” to dedicate my full time to making a difference. I researched many franchises and at first I was going to buy into a discount tire franchise to fund my STEM outreach. But to my great surprise, my franchise consultant offered a kids coding franchise option. I was thrilled. I did research and was not totally sold and decided to ask if there were other coding franchises. The next day, I had my first email from Ruth. There was something different about Code Wiz. I have come to call that difference, relationship! It is not just about a business but building a relationship with franchisees. I now had the missing piece to my puzzle. That thing that gets me most excited, that thing that sparks the most joy, is giving kids a piece of their path to the future, a fun space to define that path and the opportunity to create generational wealth while making a difference.” Watch below to hear more about why she decided to open a Code Wiz franchise in her community!
