Neighbor’s Choice Announces Expansion into Houston
Community news franchise wants to expand neighborhood newsletters across Texas


San Antonio, TX – Neighbor’s Choice– a community-centered neighborhood newsletter franchise – is taking strides to expand further into its home state of Texas. The brand plans to find three to five franchisees in the Houston area as the demand for better neighborhood communication continues to rise. The brand is targeting territories ranging from 500,000 to 1 million homes, as Houston’s neighborhoods experience rapid growth.

Neighbor’s Choice plans to continue to grow in Texas and add Houston to the Texas cities the company is already operating in. Today, the brand provides individualized newsletter services to communities across Dallas, Austin, and San Antonio. The Houston expansion comes shortly after Neighbor’s Choice announced its goal of adding up to five franchises a month.

“We are receiving inquiries from people across our home state who are seeing the good that our services provide local communities. We have been able to keep people more engaged in their communities by spotlighting local businesses and sharing the news that happens right in their backyard,” said Susan Schopp, Founder and CEO of Neighbor’s Choice. “We believe now is the right time to continue our expansion throughout Texas, aiming continue to giving Texans the local and relevant news they are looking for.”

Neighborhood News was founded in 1996 by Susan Schopp out of her desire to help her community and utilize her experience in sales and journalism while being able to work at home with her young children. The brand assists neighborhoods and municipalities of all sizes to stay better connected by producing and distributing individualized monthly or bi-monthly newsletters written by community leaders that include ad space for local businesses. After discovering a need for Neighborhood News in the San Antonio market, Susan created Neighbor’s Choice to move the brand forward through franchising.

Neighbor’s Choice allows local business owners to have the flexibility to advertise their business on a monthly or bi-monthly basis in various community publications across Austin, San Antonio, and Dallas. As the Houston expansion progresses, business owners across these markets will have an opportunity to get their business in front of the right customer at the right time by advertising in neighborhood newsletters.

In order to expand the brand and serve more communities, Neighbor’s Choice is looking for high-energy, hands-on, entrepreneurs looking to make a change from the corporate world or working to better blend their home and work life. Neighbor’s Choice base franchise fee is $35,000 and the total investment ranges from $60,000-$85,000.

“Most people who have been working from home during the past year and fully developed their home office should already have many of the items necessary to get started,” added Schopp.
