The Waiting GameĀ® Franchise Expands To Missouri

The Waiting Game® Will Soon Offer Its “One Stop Solution” To Local St. Charles County Businesses

(LITHIA, FL – May 4, 2015) — The Waiting Game, a leader in cost effective, hyper-local advertising and a leading provider of print, online, and mobile coupons announced today that it has signed a deal with local entrepreneur Luke Wilson to bring The Waiting Game to St. Charles County, Missouri

“I’m excited to bring The Waiting Game and all that it offers to my area,” said Wilson. “I look forward to working with local business owners and helping them grow their business.”

 In today’s economy, many local business owners are experiencing diminished revenues, and, as a result, are looking for ways to spend their limited advertising resources more wisely. The WAITING GAME® is just what they need to attract new customers with the potential for repeat business, without needless spending to reach consumers outside their geographic area.

The WAITING GAME provides local business owners a single outlet to cover all their advertising needs. The Waiting Game print publication is an incentive-based, full-color, interactive monthly publication that is distributed for free at businesses where consumers experience wait times, such as dental and medical offices, hospitals, beauty salons, dance studios, car washes, dealerships and takeout restaurants.  Each high quality edition features engaging facts and figures, Crossword and Sudoku puzzles, and 36 full-color incentive-based ads for local businesses. Not only are the incentives available in print, but all coupons for local businesses and restaurants can be printed online at and shared through Facebook, Twitter, and most social networks. The WAITING GAME provides local businesses effective print and online exposure, social media promotion, as well as a free mobile marketing program and a free premium membership on its local online business directory.

“Business owners are busy doing a thousand different things. It is tremendously valuable for a business owner to have everything made available to them through one outlet and for one price. Our goal is to provide our customers exposure in print, online, and through mobile, while keeping it affordable for even the smallest business” said Bill Zapf, President of The Waiting Game. “The WAITING GAME first engages consumers in the publication, and then offers them an incentive to visit businesses within a small geographic area…an area they frequent, and makes them aware that they can get those same offers online” said Rob Parfitt, co-founder of The WAITING GAME and an expert in branding and couponing. “These are the consumers everyone wants to reach, and we have created a business model that effectively reaches them at a comparatively low cost for our advertisers.” From small mom-and-pop shops to large national chains, The WAITING GAME is a great one stop solution for businesses as they look to target their advertising dollars.

Currently, editions of The WAITING GAME are being published and/or in development in Florida, Texas, New Hampshire, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Arizona, New York, and Canada.
