Helping our members to realize their dreams is remarkably rewarding for us as DirectBuy franchise owners,â said co-owner Lise Girard. âHowever, we would not have accomplished these lofty goals without the support of our knowledgeable and devoted staff. We would like to share this award with each and every one of our employees.â
