10 Things about Megan You Might Like to Know - Franchise Owner

Posted on

We, at Educational Outfitters franchise office, would like to share pieces of our franchisees with you.

The Arlington, VA Educational Outfitters franchise owner, Megan Donnelly, is one fabulous lady for sure and those that know her, simply adore her.

Megan has been an Educational Outfitters franchise owner since 2014. She operates an impeccable store and treats her customers exactly the way she wants to be treated. You will not ever wonder what happened to the Golden Rule in Educational Outfitters of Arlington, VA - It is the backbone of her business.

Ever wonder what your local Educational Outfitters store owner enjoys when they aren’t at work?

  • Megan’s favorite part of being a business owner is the flexibility it provides.
  • Pancakes were her favorite food as a child. Her taste buds have matured through the years and now Megan is quite fond of chicken marsala.
  • Favorite quote: “She stood in the storm, and when the wind did not blow her away, she adjusted her sails.” ~ Elizabeth Edwards
  • Ocean waves are her favorite sounds while the Love Shack by the B-52s is her favorite song.
  • We asked Megan, ‘if she could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be and why?’ Megan chose to stay 40 forever! She believes 40 is young enough to have fun and old enough not to be stupid.
  • If Megan could witness any event from the past, she would’ve loved to have seen her great-grandparents arriving in the U.S. from Ireland.
  • If she could learn to do anything, Megan would like to learn how to play the piano. Go for it Megan!
  • Being a parent and business owner doesn’t allot for a whole lot of free time. However, when she does have time to herself, Megan enjoys reading a book, looking at magazines and catalogs.
  • Her favorite time of the day is dusk. Megan’s favorite day is Sunday and she does enjoy the month of October.
  • ‘She Held on Tight’ would be the name of her autobiography. Maybe she’ll write it for us one day!

Of course, Megan is mad about plaid in the school uniform industry. But, if you are in the Arlington area and you need corporate apparel, spirit items, promotional products, team wear, embroidery, and much more, please contact Megan.  She loves her customers and you will love her enthusiasm and kindness while serving her customers.
