...there's no question in my mind that all three of the original Be A Contender winners will be millionaires.
Bud Gate, Master Franchisor easygates.



easyhome Ltd. (TSX:EH), Canada's leading merchandise leasing company, is announcing the official contest close date of the Ultimate Franchise Opportunity "Be A Contender II". The "Be A Contender" program provides individuals the opportunity to win an initial franchise finance package of up to $750,000. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own and operate an easyhome franchise.

In 2010 the first three Be A Contender winners opened their very own easyhome franchise locations. (see story)

"Part of this program is that after you've done your first store you have the option to get more territory. So these guys all have the dream to be multi unit franchisees and there's no question in my mind that all three of the original Be A Contender winners will be millionaires."
-Bud Gate, Master Franchisor easygates

With the proven easyhome leasing model all three winners have had record breaking performance in the short time they have been open.

"North America is wide open and if you have the will, and if you have the desire and ability then you should put your name in the hat."
-David Ingram, President & CEO easyhome Ltd.

The application process is easy and kept completely private. For further information contact Sean Taylor, VP Franchising at (905) 272-2788 ext. 274. or visit

easyhome launched the first Be A Contender in 2009(see story).
