Franchising.com (April 2019) - Our Town America, the nation’s premier New Mover Marketing franchise, recently named Patrick and Carey Clinton as the 2018 New Mover Survey Drawing Winner. Patrick and Carey, along with their three children, Lucas, Caleb and Amelia, were awarded the grand prize of $3,000.
The Clinton family recently moved to Tampa, FL from San Diego. Upon arrival in Florida, the Clintons were welcomed with an Our Town America New Mover Welcome Package, a personalized collection of useful, one-time offers from local businesses such as Jet’s Pizza. This welcome package helps new residents acclimate to their new neighborhood while supporting the local economy. Carey was one of tens of thousands of new movers from across the country who completed the annual survey found within the package.
“We are so excited to have won this award! Filling out the survey was so easy; it was definitely worth it,” says Carey Clinton. “I’m a huge fan of Our Town America. As a military family, we’ve moved around quite a bit. As we settle into a new town, we are always on the lookout for new places to eat in our neighborhood. Through Our Town America, we found our favorite pizza, lunch and date spots around town. I can’t recommend Our Town America enough to other new movers.”
The check presentation ceremony took place on Wednesday, April 3 at Jet’s Pizza, located at 14624 N Dale Mabry, Tampa, FL 33618. Local Our Town America franchisee Michael Avallone presented the check on behalf of Our Town America.
“Throughout my childhood and early career, I was constantly moving from town to town. I know how hard it can be to settle into a new neighborhood, which is why I have such a passion for helping movers connect with local businesses,” says Avallone. “I am so proud to be a part of the Our Town America team as a franchisee. And I am thrilled that this year’s big winner was in Tampa, so I have the opportunity to participate. I was very excited for the opportunity to show our appreciation for local new movers and present the Clinton family with the $3,000 check!”
