ST. PETERSBURG, FL (June 23, 2016) — Today, Valpak, a leader in local print and digital coupons, announced today that husband-and-wife team Remi and Kristen Berube have purchased Valpak of The Big Sky territory in Montana. They mailed their first Valpak signature Blue Envelope at the end of March to 50,000 households in Missoula, Ravalli and Mineral County.
The couple also owns and operates Big Sky Denture Group, which is how they became familiar with Valpak and its marketing opportunities for small businesses. When the previous territory owner stopped mailing in 2015, the Berubes' felt the loss.
"We wanted our Valpak back!" says Remi Berube. "Kristen and I knew first-hand from our own marketing experiences with Valpak that its full suite of digital, mobile and print products can be a lifeline for small businesses. Not to mention, as consumers we enjoy the savings it delivers to our inbox and mailbox."
Both Remi, who grew up in Flathead Valley, and Kristen, who has lived in Montana since early childhood, are denturists by trade and have owned their full-service denture clinic in Missoula for 10 years. Both pride themselves on paying attention to the details and striving to bring their customers 100 percent satisfaction.
"Remi and Kristen have so much enthusiasm for life and for their business," said Shak Turner, Valpak's director of franchise sales. "Because they are coming into Valpak ownership having been on the client side, they know exactly what customers are looking for and how to deliver customized digital and print marketing plans that will meet those needs. They are hitting the ground running, and we can't wait to see them exceed even their own expectations."
A leader in cooperative direct mail, Valpak mails coupons to nearly 39 million demographically targeted households per month in 45 states and four Canadian provinces. Today, in addition to its flagship Blue Envelope, Valpak offers its business customers an impressive portfolio of digital advertising products including Smartphone apps, Google partnerships, website development, mobile web optimization and reputation management.
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.
