WHAT DO FRANCHISE OWNERS DO?

Our Town America 02

Our franchisees are typically full-time in the business. We have found that our business, while allowing for family and life opportunities, does require a full-time commitment and has the ability to provide income that can support it. Franchisees first introduce local businesses in their area to our community new mover welcoming program. Our franchisees sell new mover marketing by Our Town America to local businesses. Once the business has enrolled in our welcome program, the franchisee continues to provide excellent service to them. As in any partnership (between franchises and their local business sponsors), it is essential to maintain a relationship with ongoing communication for a long-term future.

It is rare that a prospect calls the corporate office. Franchisees prospect, via phone and in person, to local businesses in their market. Our territories are manageable for a one-person sales organization, though some franchisees will wish to develop more areas and field a sales staff. We will work with you to see which is the right decision for you. Our corporate office has an appointment setting staff to further support our franchisees with their sales.


FRANCHISEE TESTIMONIALS

  • “We bought an Our Town America franchise in the Spring of 2013. We felt we were ready to run a business of our own so we explored several franchising options. Our Town stood out immediately. We liked the idea of being able to make a contribution to our community by helping new movers and local businesses. Our Town gives us the best of both worlds; we can run our own business and enjoy the rewards of our own hard work, but we also have the support and proven track record of a company with over 40 years of experience welcoming new movers. As new franchise owners, it has been exciting learning how to make Our Town America – Route 66 a success!”
    Mike & Julie Douglas – Our Town America – St Louis, MO (Route 66)
  • “I left the corporate arena… and one thing that I needed to find was an opportunity where I could make a decent income. With three children and a wife, two dogs and a few other animals.. so we went to work immediately when we bought our dealership and we worked extremely hard to get to where we are, but I’ll tell you what – there has been a lot of success both from a personal standpoint and from a financial standpoint. I think I made a great decision as far as coming onboard with Our Town.”
    Chris Beer - Our Town - Atlanta, GA (North)
  • “As a single mother, I needed to find a way to generate income plus have the flexibility to be there when my daughter needed me…working 9 to 5 wasn’t an option. I accidentally fell upon this Our Town opportunity and ran with it. With a lot of dedication, I now have the best of both worlds – steady income and the flexibility to be the mom my daughter needs me to be. Being part of the Our Town family since 2006 has truly changed my life both personally and financially.”
    Heather Wahl - Our Town - Warminster, PA
  • “I purchased my Our Town franchise in October, 2007 after making the decision to be self-employed. I was attracted by the company’s proven results, their success and liked the idea of working with a company that was family owned and community oriented. Our Town was a natural fit for me with over 15 years of sales experience and my desire to make a difference in my community. Reaching out to new movers during one of the most stressful times in their lives and introducing them to businesses that they need and are searching for is much more than just another form of advertising, it is a service to our neighbors. Calling on local businesses in the Charlotte area and meeting all of the business owners who service their community is rewarding in itself. Knowing that I can help their business grow and consistently introduce new people to them is a great feeling. The ongoing support and product development Our Town continues to offer allows me to grow my business and offer the best service and marketing strategies to my sponsors.”
    Jane McElhaney – Our Town America – Charlotte, NC
