June 06, 2014 // Franchising.com // Beverly Hills - Pat Sajak is inviting entrepreneurs and self-starters across the U.S. to consider a franchisee opportunity with his breakthrough daily deal platform – Great American Deals (www.GreatAmericanDeals.com). The franchise network is built around a hyper-local online shopping website that focuses on individual neighborhoods versus larger metropolitan territories and offers daily discounted deals designed to keep consumer spending within the immediate community, and in the pockets of nearby retailers. Sajak, along with his business partners, is looking for energetic, self-starting independent business men and women to join him in taking the Great American Deals concept to communities across America by becoming an operator in their own hometown.
The organization will be exhibiting at the upcoming International Franchise Expo (IFE) trade show at Javits Center in New York, June 19th – 21st, Booth #340. The IFE show is one of the largest industry events to attract prospective franchisees looking to become part of a growing franchise network – and Great American Deals anticipates that there will be strong interest in their platform.
Great American Deals differs from previous daily deal models in that it drives consumers to neighborhood owned and operated retail locations, services and events – versus retail outlets that are simply too far away for consumers to conveniently patronize on a regular basis. Because of its hyper-local focus, merchants love the Great American Deals platform because it stimulates repeat business from consumers who live right "around the corner." And, as an added bonus, a portion of every online sale generated through Great American Deals is donated to local schools and charities, selected by the consumer at the online point of purchase, as part of the brand's "Give Back" campaign.
Having experienced phenomenal success with its pilot franchisees in the bedroom communities of Southern California, the company is now selling franchise territories nationwide. The typical Great American Deals franchisee has grown its local consumer database size by nearly 90 percent in the past six months alone, and the average per deal profit growth has nearly doubled during the same period. Plus, the company's "Give Back" program has already generated more than $175,000 in proceeds for local schools and charities. Sajak believes that this franchise opportunity is a winner for motivated potential franchise investors looking to get on board with a strong Internet-based model.
"The power of buying local is a category game-changer for the entire daily deal industry," said Pat Sajak. "This model is poised to help reinvigorate retail business in communities across America. I personally look forward to forming new partnerships with entrepreneurs who are ready to step up and take a new challenge, while building a thriving business – even out of their own home, if they desire."
"This is the only product that Pat Sajak has ever endorsed over his many years as a savvy businessman – and there's a reason for that," said Michael Silber, CEO and Founding Partner of Great American Deals. "This is a breakthrough platform that appeals to consumers, merchants and give-back partners alike. The ability to serve up neighborhood deals with laser precision to hometown residents, who prefer to keep their spending dollars right within the immediate community, represents a great opportunity for local operators. Great American Deals offers an enticing way to tap into a hot local e-commerce business driver, plus help revitalize the marketplace for neighborhood brick and mortars."
