Local Marketing and Advertising Franchising Company Welcomemat Services Announces Growth Plans for Asheville | Local Marketing and Advertising Franchise Welcomemat Services Announces Growth Plans for Asheville. Company founder to host business seminar at University of North Carolina on May 18, 2011.

ASHEVILLE, N.C.– (May 2011) – Welcomemat Services, the nation’s leading franchise system specializing in helping businesses turn new movers into loyal customers, has announced expansion into Asheville, North Carolina.

The announcement stems from a larger, regional development plan that will open a substantial amount of new Welcomemat Services franchises throughout North Carolina during the next several years. Currently, the company is a staple in Charlotte, North Carolina, where they have developed a loyal following of small and regional businesses that have used the company’s services to help build stronger relationships with their customers while increasing revenues and client retention for nearly a decade.

“A key impetus behind our expansion into Asheville is the success that we have has experienced serving clients in the Charlotte area,” said Mattingly. “Welcomemat Services offers businesses the right tools to help build stronger relationships with their customers that create loyal fans for many years to come. We look forward to developing the brand in Asheville and beyond.”

To demonstrate its commitment to expanding in the Asheville market, company founder and president, Brian Mattingly, will also be in town on Wednesday, May 18, 2011 at the University of North Carolina Asheville’s campus to host a free educational business seminar that will focus on franchising and the Welcomemat Services business opportunity. The seminar will be held in room HU-221.

The WelcomematTM loyalty program delivers a gift certificate package of sophisticated invitations to new movers that may be redeemed at local restaurants, salons, medical practices and auto service centers. Welcomemat Services is the first and only loyalty marketing platform designed for local businesses to employ proprietary technology that enables new mover information to be bar-coded into every invitation. The barcode information not only allows small businesses the ability to track response of their marketing dollars, but also gives them insight into the moving population in their area.

“While online deal sites continue to steadily grow, they are not creating the necessary relationship between consumers and businesses to help small business owners thrive and maintain customers for the long run,” added Mattingly.

To augment the company’s growth, Welcomemat Services is seeking sales-savvy individuals to develop the local Welcomemat networking and own their share of a brand that is creating the next revolution in local, technology-based marketing. The average cost to purchase a Welcomemat Services territory ranges from $49,900 to $77,050, which includes a franchise fee of $35,000. Franchise owners are not required to have industry experience, but should have solid sales and networking skills in order to effectively build relationships with advertiser clients.
