Washington Mom Empowers Children for the Future

We are excited to announce the newest owner of Code Wiz: Poojan Bhattarai. With extensive experience in the business world, Poojan is thrilled to bring her skill set to a brand she is passionate about. 

Who Is Poojan Bhattarai?

Poojan holds an MBA from Seattle University. As a consultant and a manager in the IT field, her previous role involved leading a team of associates to complete internal control projects for Fortune 100 companies. With her consulting experience, she knew she would be able to run her own business – and her passion pointed her in the right direction. 

Residents of Washington state, Poojan and her husband, Sundar, are parents to a four-year-old son. As a mother, Poojan saw an opportunity to give back to her community by helping children learn and grow. Plus, she knew that running her own business would give her more time to spend with her family. 

Why Did Poojan Make a Career Change?

While she had experienced much success in the business sphere as a top-performing consultant, Poojan was fed up with long hours, inflexibility, and the corporate hierarchy. She came to FranCoach looking to channel her skills into a new opportunity. 

As a business owner, Poojan is excited to regain control of her life with more flexible working hours and by not reporting to someone else. She is looking forward to being her own boss and setting her own schedule. Poojan came to us with an interest in children’s enrichment and education, and Code Wiz will help her grow a fulfilling career in which she can also give back to her community in that way. 

Why Will Poojan Make a Great Franchise Owner?

Throughout the Discovery Process, Poojan worked with FranCoach’s Krista Lowe to discover brands that aligned with her goals, priorities, and budget. Here is what Krista has to say about why Poojan is sure to succeed as a franchise owner: 

“Poojan has an incredible background to begin with. She has helped other companies grow, and she understands how business works – she truly grasps the importance of proven processes and methods. But the best part of Poojan’s journey is that she was able to find a brand that is both her passion AND a great business opportunity. I am confident that Code Wiz is the perfect match, and I cannot wait to see Poojan thrive in her new role.” 

Why Did Poojan Choose Code Wiz?

Code Wiz is a unique children’s education franchise centered around teaching young learners to code. At Code Wiz locations around the country, children learn, create, and collaborate to gain the problem-solving capabilities they need to build a strong future. Code Wiz provides its franchisees with an opportunity to empower kids to connect with technology, making a lifelong positive impact. 

After comparing a few different STEM-related children’s education opportunities, Poojan found that Code Wiz was the best fit for her and her family. She attended a virtual Meet the Team Day and was able to build strong connections with the Code Wiz team, including Franchise Development Director Diane Wilson. Poojan is looking forward to opening her doors and helping children in her community expand their horizons. 

Please join our team at FranCoach in congratulating Poojan Bhattarai and wishing her luck as a new owner of Code Wiz.
