[Note: This Guest Post/Letter is from Marisa Flowers, current owner of Gymboree Play & Music DC in Woodley Park. I first mentioned her on KFDC nearly five years ago when she was getting ready to open Gymboree in the District. She’s now moving on, but looking for the right buyer to take over the business to continue offering their quality play and learning opportunities to children in the city.]
Dear Friends of Gymboree Play & Music,
The purpose of this letter is to let you know that the rights to the Gymboree Play & Music of Washington, DC, are available for sale. Gymboree Play & Music has been serving this area for 5 years and has had the privilege of sharing many notable moments with the children and parents from our local communities.
I have had the incredible opportunity of owning and running my own business over these last five years and have been able to give back to local families, what Gymboree Play & Music gave to me and my family. Gymboree Play & Music of Washington, DC opened its doors in July 2013 and has grown significantly since its inception. For family reasons, I have decided to sell my Play & Music business. It is a hard decision to make as Gymboree Play & Music of Washington, DC, has its best years ahead. It is truly an exciting time to be at Gymboree Play & Music. Our new management is dedicated to seeing double-digit growth in our sites and has the same philosophy as the creator of Play & Music – namely that “Gymboree Play & Music is to preschool as kindergarten is to first grade.”
Gymboree Play & Music has programs for children ages 5 and under, offering developmentally appropriate classes allowing learning through play, art, music and more! To plan for the continued growth and development of this family-centric business:
I am seeking a business minded, customer service oriented, enthusiastic buyer who is committed to the Gymboree Play & Music philosophy and brand.
If you, or anyone you know, is interested in researching the possibility of owning a Play & Music location please contact Bonnie Stewart at corporate office to request an information packet. Her information is listed below. Additionally, I would suggest that you visit our website at gymboreeclasses.com where you can review pertinent facts regarding the franchise that has been in operation since 1978.
Once you have received the information from our corporate office, submitted your application forms and are ready to move forward, we can meet to further discuss this exciting business.
