WHAT DO FRANCHISE OWNERS DO?
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.
