Pat Sajak, the famous host of Wheel of Fortune, is trying his hand at franchising.
Great American Deals is the name of Sajak’s franchise concept, and according to their franchise website, “It’s wildly successful in Southern California’s Conejo Valley.”
Great American Deals
Currently, the most-well known daily deals website is Groupon.
Great American Deals looks to be similar, except for one major difference:
They want people who want to be their own bosses to buy into it for their local markets.
From the Great American Deals Website:
“Our proven concept is now available nationwide. We’re looking for energetic, business-minded entrepreneurs with solid ties to their communities. We have built something special in the franchise community, something that allows entrepreneurs a way to build their own businesses while revitalizing business on Main Street America. Great American Deals is the future of the daily deal industry.”
— Pat Sajak, Partner and Brand Ambassador
Also From the Great American Deals Website:
Great American Deals is a one-of-a-kind franchise opportunity that allows you to bring the daily deal online business into your community that benefits local consumers, neighborhood businesses, and your schools and charities.
You build relationships with businesses in your community, making it easier to retain your clients and get repeat business.
With deals focused on local businesses, more people will purchase your offers generating more revenue for both you and your merchants.
As your business grows, so do your favorite local businesses. As you grow and succeed, so does your community.
Pat Sajak Tries Franchising. However…
Sajak, an already-successful businessman, recently did something else-and it wasn’t related to franchising.
I now believe global warming alarmists are unpatriotic racists knowingly misleading for their own ends. Good night.

Being a spokesperson for a company-even if you’re a partner, like in Sajak’s case, is a big deal. But, it can backfire, too. Especially when comments are made that could inflame a large segment of the population. The segment of the population that does believe global warming is actually real.

Pat Sajak is the spokesman and a partner in a franchise that has a very patriotic name.
He may want to be careful of what he says, as he may himself, be viewed as someone who’s not very patriotic.
If that happens, the Great American Deals franchise opportunity could become extinct.
Just like some of the most amazing animals on our planet.
