As GetintheLoop added new categories like restaurants, spas, and retail, and started to launch in new markets, it attracted the attention of Canada's major media companies. While partnerships with Bell, Corus, Pattison, and Stingray resulted in rapid growth through Western Canada, Matt believed that local ownership mattered.
Inspired by the potential of creating a franchise ownership model around GetintheLoop's software, Matt posted a few online classifieds in 2018 and sold the first 8 franchises within just a few months, making GetintheLoop the first SaaS franchise model in the world.
What started as an innocent, fun project to help connect local golf courses has since grown into a dynamic tech platform that connects local businesses with a thriving community of over 3 million engaged consumers.
With hundreds of local entrepreneurs representing GetintheLoop, our platform is becoming a leading communications tool for businesses across North America to reach, engage, and acquire local customers, while truly being a grassroots local business in each community we serve. GetintheLoop is proudly one of the fastest-growing digital networks in North America.
Today, our platform is live in Canada and the United States, we share an integration partnership with BenefitHub, and we’re recognized by the Canadian Franchise Association and the International Franchise Association.
