[0:59] Josh introduces today’s guest, Hansel Lynn, the Founder and CEO of The Coder School.

[2:14] Josh welcomes Hansel to Franchise Euphoria.

[2:47] Hansel shares how he and his business partner, Wayne, came up with the concept for The Coder School about five years ago.

[5:02] Prior to founding The Coder School, he worked previously as a School of Rock franchisee which was his first exposure in the franchising industry.

[6:03] Hansel walks through the process of the services offered at The Coder School and touches on how this has been modified due to COVID-19.

[8:55] In the beginning, Hansel and Wayne were doing a lot of the coaching for their classes, but they found that the key has been ensuring your staff has very disparate skills.

[11:49] Prior to the outbreak of coronavirus, Hansel’s philosophy had been structured around an in-person experience. However, after rolling out a virtual experience due to government shutdowns, he’s found it works better than expected and plans to use a hybrid approach going forward.

[15:57] When they first started franchising The Coder School, they took a very organic approach to spreading the word about the franchise and invested less than $1,000 in social marketing.

[18:25] The biggest quality The Coder School looks for in their franchisees is passion.

[21:22] The Coder School is currently developing some premade content to supplement their typical services.

Started listening to Josh's podcast after the wife and I decided to buy a franchise and I quickly went through about 200 episodes on 1.5x & 2x, before signing on to purchase a franchise. Josh's info was an invaluable part of our decision to buy, and after listening to so many episodes, I felt like I knew and trusted him on a personal level, so it was a no-brainer to enlist his services when it came time to review the franchise agreement. Josh was super easy to talk to and very empathetic to our needs, and being first time business owners, we needed all the empathy we could get. Josh helped us negotiate a great deal with the franchisor and we were very happy with his services. Great podcast, great guy, great service to anyone involved in the franchise world!
