April 01, 2015 // Franchising.com // ST. PETERSBURG, FL - Valpak, a leader in local print and digital coupons, announced today Ryan Dumler and Tony Villegas have acquired the existing Valpak of Kansas City territory. Under new ownership, the Valpak signature blue envelope will now mail to nearly 450,000 households in Johnson, Jackson, Wyandotte, Platte and Clay counties counties starting May 1.
"Tony and I are excited to work together as business partners and take over the Kansas City territory," said Ryan Dumler, Valpak of Kansas City franchisee. "We’ve worked together at Valpak on the sales team for a number of years and we look forward to leveraging our experience with the brand to offer our consumers great ways to save through Valpak."
Dumler and Villegas are Valpak veterans, selling in the Kansas City territory for more than a decade. Prior to joining Valpak, Dumler was the sales and branch manager of an industrial supply company, while Villegas worked in the restaurant industry, where he first discovered Valpak through purchasing ads for his restaurants. Having the entrepreneurial spirit, they both jumped at the opportunity to purchase the Kansas City franchise and become Valpak owners.
"Ryan and Tony have been part of the Valpak family for years, and we are so excited to have them as the new owners of the Kansas City territory," said Greg Courchane, director of franchise sales for Valpak. "They’ve had much success on the sales side and we look forward to watching their territory grow in the coming years."

Cox Target Media, providers of Valpak, also owns Savings.com, a leading online source for savings and personalized deals. Working together, Valpak and Savings.com offer consumers a more extensive selection of offers and a rewarding shopping experience as content is shared across platforms.
