Article Contents

DOR-2-DOR are the leading local leaflet distribution company with a successful 25 year track record and have been offering franchises for 12 years. Modern developments, such as websites and other forms of internet marketing, will never offer a challenge to the benefits of being able to reach a targeted market exclusively. According to Direct Marketing Association research, Letterbox Marketing has grown rapidly since 1994 and despite the growth of the internet and online marketing, Letterbox Marketing is a very important and effective method of local communications and promotion. The market in the UK is now worth nearly £1billion with 80% of the UK's top advertisers, using Letterbox Marketing.

What makes this franchise opportunity so outstanding?

  • DOR-2-DOR has perfected a business model as a result of 25 years of successful trading. Operating a proven and successful business model is what franchising should be all about.
  • You will be joining an existing team of franchisees who can all be spoken to and who will confirm their own individual successes. Some franchisees have been in place for many years and now generate very substantial incomes.
  • Advertising and promoting your business locally is the key to the success of most franchises. The DOR-2-DOR business model offers you continuous and ongoing free advertising and this benefit alone creates a continually growing client base.

Why develop a local distribution business?

80% of the UK’s top advertisers use letterbox marketing and the market in the UK is worth nearly one billion pounds. Distributing advertising material on behalf of local organisations offers a recession proof business and will never be replaced by modern developments such as websites and other forms of internet marketing. With the extensive support of DOR-2-DOR the business is simple to operate and offers remarkable income potential for a comparatively low initial outlay.


DOR-2-DOR are full members of the Direct Marketing Association (DMA) and Jeff Frankling, the founder of Zone Marketing, was elected 3 times by members to serve on the Door Drop Council and was chairman of the marketing committee for 4 years until 2011. DOR-2-DOR have been granted a Postcomm licence by Ofcom (the Government’s communication watchdog) and the DOR-2-DOR franchise is recommended by the Approved Franchise Association.

Track record

The DOR-2-DOR franchise offers the great benefit of having been available for some time, and 20% of the anticipated network is now in place. Existing franchisees can be identified on the company website and they are all available to be spoken to. There are also numerous videos on the website where franchisees will identify what levels of success they have achieved. Despite the fact that this would be classed as a low cost franchise, the income potential is very significant. One of the original appointments now has an identifiable turnover in excess of £500,000. The website also contains more than fifty client recommendations, many from well-known organisations, charities and public organisations. With a DOR-2-DOR franchise you get the opportunity to develop 4 naturally interlinked businesses through the same low cost acquisition fee. These businesses are automatically included within every franchise granted. They are promoted through separate websites and are all fully supported by the DOR-2-DOR central support team.

DOR- Dropz

Dor Dropz is printed on high quality paper in full colour. It offers the franchisee the opportunity of instant income The Dor Dropz concept allows the franchisee to promote a local advertising opportunity to businesses that would not normally wish to go to the expense of creating their own leaflet.

A franchisee can now offer a full printing and design service and generate a significant income from this alone. All of these separate commercial opportunities are fully covered during a franchisee’s training and allow the local DOR-2-DOR franchisee to offer the full local marketing support service to their local clients. No competitor is able to offer such a comprehensive service on a local basis.
