Snitch Franchise Information:

Welcome to SNITCH, the most exciting and unique new franchise opportunity in years!

Let's face it. So many franchise opportunities are more of the same. Food services, cleaning and home repair, retailing -- there are many good opportunities out there, but none like SNITCH.

Like other franchises, a SNITCH franchise gives you the opportunity to own your own business. But, unlike those others, being a SNITCH publisher also allows you to perform a serious public service -- reporting on crime -- in a way your readers will find both informative and entertaining, your advertisers will find both unique and compelling, and you could find both profitable and rewarding.

What is SNITCH?
SNITCH is a feisty, free, weekly newspaper devoted to crime and distributed in racks and stacks in various locations throughout the community. It delivers essential information and content that both informs and entertains, while helping communities fight crime. SNITCH franchisees generate revenue by selling advertising space to businesses interested in reaching the publication's broad audience.

After nearly three years of continuous, successful operations in Louisville, Kentucky-and the recent launches of several new SNITCH newspapers from coast to coast-we're now offering qualified and committed individuals and investor groups the opportunity to publish SNITCH newspapers in new geographies, either as stand alone newspapers or as parts of multi-unit newspaper groups. As we grow, and as the SNITCH brand gains further national notoriety, these opportunities may multiply into other media outlets and business opportunities.

However, as you might expect, SNITCH is not for everyone. Successful SNITCH publishers or publishing teams have a unique combination of exceptional sales skills and business savvy. We have the outstanding concept, first-rate training and excellent support systems to make such people winners in the highly competitive and dynamic world of free newspaper publishing.
