ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., May 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Valpak, a leader in local print and digital coupons, announced today Mike Paul and Larry Delaney have assumed ownership of Valpak's North Orange County, Calif., territory, formerly part of the larger Orange County territory. Under new ownership, the Valpak signature blue envelope started mailing to nearly 300,000 households in North Orange County earlier this year.
"I've been an advocate of Valpak's business model for the past 20 years because of the constant support and corporate accessibility given to franchisees," said Mike Paul, Valpak of North Orange County franchisee. "I saw the opportunity to grow Valpak's presence in the northern part of the region, and after purchasing a region of the existing Orange Country territory, my business partner Larry Delaney and I now own this new territory. We're now becoming strategic marketing partners for our customers."
In addition to Paul's personal experience with the brand, Delaney brings a wealth of knowledge and a strong background in finance and communications to Valpak. Formerly a strategic investor relations counsel, Delaney has helped public companies with mergers, acquisitions and capital deployment across various business sectors including federal IT services, aerospace and defense, software and healthcare.
"Mike is a long-time member of the Valpak family, and we're thrilled that he's teamed up with Larry to purchase the North Orange County territory," said Greg Courchane, director of franchise sales for Valpak. "With Mike's in-depth knowledge of the brand and Larry's extensive experience in strategy and finance, we're confident that they will successfully lead the community in saving through Valpak's print and digital offerings."
A leader in cooperative direct mail, Valpak mails over 20 billion coupons to nearly 40 million demographically targeted households per month in more than 100 markets in 45 states and four Canadian provinces. Today, in addition to its flagship blue envelope, the brand offers its business customers an impressive portfolio of digital advertising products including Smartphone apps, which are also integrated into the Samsung Wallet, Apple Passbook and Google Wallet, as well as QR codes and online coupons to reach consumers at home, and on-the-go.
Ideal candidates for Valpak franchise ownership should possess a desire to join a trusted, industry-leading brand, work within a proven franchise system, develop relationships with local businesses and have a comfort level with selling new, digital technologies. Franchisees should also possess a minimum liquidity of $75,000, and a minimum net worth of $150,000.
