Over our 34 year history, Our Town has come to dominate the most desirable
niche in direct-mail advertising; the new-mover segment. By being "first to the
door" with valuable gift certificates from local businesses and professionals,
we welcome recent movers to their new communities and introduce them to the
people with whom they will do business in the years ahead.
Approximately 1 in 5 Americans moves every year... that's a market of over
40,000,000 people. Dozens of business relationships must be replaced by each
family that relocates. That means new-movers are more likely to be receptive to
this targeted advertising than at any other time in their lives.

a select group of franchisees. If you are interested in leveraging your sales

Town further. Hurry, exclusive franchise areas are going fast.

100% Franchise Fee Guarantee
We're so sure of Our Town's program that we can make the following promise:
If you are not solidly profitable at the end of your first year, we will
refund your franchise fee.
There are no catches and no caveats and we know of no other franchisor that
makes a similar promise.
Our Town owners are thoroughly trained in our highly evolved business plan.
Initial training takes place at our headquarters in Florida and is followed by
one year of daily telephone coaching.
After headquarters training, your Franchise Development Team Representative will
work beside you in your franchised area for up to a week. This hands-on training
allows you to launch your new business with an expert by your side.
Franchise support is always a phone call away. We hold an annual convention that
features recurrent training and new programs. Franchisees also attend periodic
regional training meetings.

adoption of digital technology to personalize each certificate we mail, Our Town
has been the innovator and leader in our industry. Today, all across America,
Our Town introduces millions of families to businesses, services and
professionals in their new communities.
"At first I just thought, well, that's an interesting niche, I'll just use
that as a way to supplement my income. But I found that it offered several
benefits: number one, the margins were higher, that was nice, I gave it a try
and after six months in the business I was making more with Our Town than I had
after three years with [this] other company."
-Kris Kirk, Our Town, Fort Worth, TX
"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."
