Today is a very special day for us as we mark the 27thAnniversary of Market America! We’ve come a long way in 27 years, but our core mission of providing an unparalleled entrepreneurial opportunity has never changed. What has changed, however, is the incredible technology that helps drive our global success – allowing UnFranchise Owners to wield their collective buying power and convert spending into earning with the Shopping Annuity. We started this company in a small home in Greensboro, NC – with little more than belief and passion for what we were trying to accomplish. We didn’t have products, and we didn’t have profits – but over time, with the help of some incredible UnFranchise pioneers, our business expanded and along with it so did our ability to empower entrepreneurs around the world.
We operate in 8 countries and serve over 190 countries worldwide – with over 10,000 partner stores and 6 million savvy shoppers. We’ve awarded over $40 million in Cashback on SHOP.COM worldwide, and have generated over $8.8 billion in accumulated retail sales. The best part is, during these past 27 years we’ve helped UFOs earn over $4.5 billion in retail profits and commissions. Ours is an opportunity that empowers anyone with an entrepreneurial mindset and the desire to help people build a better life, and a feel truly blessed to have the opportunity to help people do exactly that with the UnFranchise. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a corporate team who’s remained together as long as ours has, but I think that is a testament to not only the power of our business, but to also the deep bonds we all share together as family.
Our business is unlike any other – Built on Product, Powered by People. For 27 years we’ve helped change the world, and we couldn’t have done that without the thousands of UnFranchise Owners all around the world. Thank you for believing in me and believing in the UnFranchise because I most assuredly believe and you and know together we’re changing the world and forging a new economy with the Shopping Annuity!
