Online Publisher of National Network of 500-Plus News Web Sites Provides Up to 10,000 Jobs and Additional Incentive to U.S. Veterans.

Cumming, GA, February 19, 2009 --( has joined the International Franchise Association (IFA), a membership organization of franchisors, franchisees, and suppliers founded in 1960, providing members and guests with a one-stop shopping experience for franchise information. As a new member of IFA, the Georgia-based community online publisher of more than 500 local news, events and information websites, is now an affordable franchise opportunity for small business entrepreneurs, veterans, and up to 10,000 experienced journalists and advertising salespersons.

In additional to joining IFA, joins the International Franchise Association Supplier Forum and VETFRAN. As a Supplier Forum Member, will deliver national news coverage and drive new customers to localized small businesses through its network of community news, events and information websites, located across the country, coast to coast. As a member of the IFA’s VETFRAN program, will offer discounts on its normal franchisee fee and other government incentive programs to US veterans, enabling their ownership of a site.

“During these difficult economic times and when our county owes so much to its veteran community, and we see many talented people unemployed and business professionals being laid off, we are pleased to be in an unusual position to provide local business ownership opportunities and thousands of jobs in the journalism industry,” said Paul Baron, President and CEO of “Low start-up costs, additional discounts to Veterans, and economic incentives from creative use of 401K accounts to fund a small business investment with no loss of a weekly paycheck and no withdrawal penalties, make owning a online newspaper one of the best opportunities around right now. We call it our own ‘stimulus package,’” he added.

The ‘stimulus package’ Baron speaks of is an offer to qualified owners/publishers to purchase a franchise at 50% of the normal license fee -- an initial investment of less than $5,000. This package is perfect for the talented journalists or enterprising professional seeking a promising new venture that will weather the struggling economy and put him or her back to work today.
