Father-Son Duo, Patrick Unverferth and Ethan Unverferth, Purchase Discovery Map of San Juans
By: PR Works
The Unverferths certainly are not the first Discovery Map owners from the same family or parent/child team. Yet Ethan represents the first Discovery Map owner still in high school.
"We homeschool our children. That's led them to be very independent with their studies and their time. All three have an entrepreneurial nature, Ethan in particular. We've seen Discovery Maps around the country on our travels and always liked them. When we saw the Discovery Map of Kennebunkport map on a family trip to Maine last year, we made an inquiry about maps in our area as a possible business for Ethan and me. That led us to Discovery Map of Telluride," said Patrick, who has an entrepreneurial side himself, owning three America's Mattress locations.
Continued Patrick, "Given the seasonal nature of running a Discovery Map and the flexibility Ethan has being a homeschool student, we thought it an excellent business for him to cut his teeth and went ahead and made the acquisition,"
Discovery Map produces colorful, hand-drawn maps that are a favorite of travelers seeking local dining, attractions, businesses, cultural experiences and great destinations. Discovery Maps are typically found on display in local stores, restaurants, hotels and tourist attractions.
In addition to the printed map, DiscoveryMap.com offers content curated by locals for visitors and those planning a trip (it's even great for locals who are unaware of their own town's hidden gems). The interactive map found on the website is to scale, thus can be used for turn-by-turn directions, as well as to access detailed information about areas of interest, places to eat, lodging and other noteworthy sites.
"What's been truly gratifying has been the support of the Discovery Map team at their headquarters in Waitsfied, Vermont. Ethan and I will both be attending their Sales University program to help jumpstart the business," said Patrick.
Added Ethan, "Everybody from Discovery Map has been great! I can't wait to get started. My Dad will be guiding me and I'm planning to get my brother and sister to help with distribution as well.
The Unverferth's first official act as owners was to change the name to Discovery Map of the San Juans.
