Owners will go out on sales calls, while also stopping by existing clients to build retention as well as further strengthen their business relationship. It's typical for the franchise owner to be out in their territory 3-4 days per week with one office day to allow for follow-up and any office duties.

“ I’ve been in outside sales for many years working for several companies. I was successful at making them money but my own personal reward wasn’t ever to my expectations. I decided to look into a franchise system where I can be my own boss, have a flexible schedule and have that balance in life between work and family. I have found that with Our Town America. It’s the perfect system for my needs. I can work from home and out of my truck. I don’t have any employees to deal with, no overhead and no inventory. The support and training from corporate never ends and helps me be as successful as I can be. I now have the personal and financial freedom I’ve been looking for!”
