November 8, 2017, Greensboro, NC – Market America Worldwide, currently in its 25th anniversary year, proudly heralded the Market Malaysia Grand Opening event, held at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre from October 13th through 15th. This momentous occasion saw more than 6,000 enthusiastic independent distributors, known as UnFranchise™ Owners (UFOs), and guests join with company leaders to celebrate the official launch of Market America’s 10th Market Country. Globally headquartered in Greensboro, North Carolina, Market America has additional operations in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, United Kingdom and Spain. In total, Market America does business in over 200 countries and territories. By expanding its UnFranchise® business program into Malaysia, Malaysians will now have access to one of the most powerful entrepreneurial business opportunities in the world. Both ordinary citizens with dreams of a better life and entrepreneurs on all levels will be able to avail themselves of this lucrative business model.
“We are bringing a proven business model that can change Malaysians’ lives by earning residual income. Additionally, UFOs worldwide can expand their businesses into a market with a population of 30 million in Malaysia, and expand the mission of converting spending into earning that can change the future economy. Due to our multicultural background, the UnFranchise business program can be a stepping stone to bring our brand, our products and business opportunity to countries surrounding us as well,” said Cherie Foong, Market Malaysia Country Manager.
Market America|SHOP.COM has been offering high-quality, exclusive company brands over the past 25 years. During this time, many of the top sellers have gained worldwide exposure, appearing in the pages of leading publications like Allure, Vogue, US Weekly and People, to name a few. Although many of these brands have attracted celebrity endorsements including hit reality TV star and entrepreneur, La La Anthony and NBA Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen, the real success comes from creating quality products that exceed customer expectations and surpass the competition. Now, customers in Malaysia will finally have access to excellent nutrition and personal care products through www.mys.shop.com that have received Halal certification.
“One of the best aspects about the UnFranchise business program is that the model crosses cultural boundaries and language barriers. People all around the world are looking for ways to improve their lives, and this business can provide that. Malaysia is a perfect fit for SHOP.COM and the UnFranchise business program, and we couldn’t think of a better place to make our 10th Market Country. We are very excited about this opening, and look forward to a promising future with Market Malaysia,” said Marc Ashley, President & COO of Market America Worldwide, who spoke to all those who attended the Market Malaysia Grand Opening event.
Additionally, Malaysians will be able to participate in Market America’s revolutionary Shopping Annuity program. The Shopping Annuity program rewards smart consumers for shifting their purchases of the same everyday products that they are already purchasing from multiple brands to SHOP.COM. This is effected by analyzing consumer spending habits with cutting edge digital tools, using SHOP.COM’s comparison shopping engine to find the best prices and allowing consumers to convert their spending into earning on qualifying purchases.
“I’m thrilled for this expansion and proudly welcome Market Malaysia into our global family of entrepreneurs! I can’t wait to see what we accomplish together in the coming years as we help more people around the world convert their spending into earning with the Shopping Annuity. Our ability to help entrepreneurs achieve their dreams is powerful; our ability to do so on a global scale is what makes our business truly special,” said JR Ridinger, Founder, Chairman & CEO of Market America, Worldwide.
