Our Town America officially announces two unique Minnesota-based franchise owners signed in the past 30 days.

Our Town America, the nation’s premiere new mover marketing franchise, continues to experience nationwide growth in the direct mail marketing industry by assisting businesses who are interested in acquiring new customers. Since the company started franchising in 2005, Our Town America has consistently been placed in the Franchise Business Review Top 50 list.

Today, Our Town America officially announces two unique Minnesota-based franchise owners signed in the past 30 days.

Kristen Lundgren of Eden Prairie, Minnesota purchased territory in the Western Suburbs of Minneapolis/St. Paul after working in sales for 32 years. “I was driven out of the corporate world by politics and the frustration of capped commissions,” says Lundgren. “I love the idea of face-to-face contact with local business owners and am so excited to be a part of the Our Town America family.”

Bill Hanson, a seven-year resident of Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota opened his Our Town America franchise in South Eastern Minnesota this past month as well. Hanson had been searching for a franchise that would fit his lifestyle for several years. “I feel fortunate to be able to facilitate a quality service to my community,” says Hanson.

Our Town America was founded in 1972 and has been operating for 43 years. Since beginning to franchise the organization in 2005, CEO Michael Plummer, Jr. (a U.S. Army Veteran) has directed the company’s success, signing 47 franchises to date. Mr. Plummer continues to ensure that Our Town America is a viable marketing/advertising resource to local, regional and national businesses.

Today, a total of 18 states in the U.S. have been touched by at least one Our Town America franchisee. Fortunately for those national or local businesses looking to acquire new customers in an area unclaimed by a franchisee, the corporate office will manage the account services.

Last year, the company touched over 8 million households with packages containing multiple gifts from participating businesses. As Lundgren, Hanson, and the six other franchisees signed in 2014 can confirm, Our Town America has no plan of slowing down next year.
