Proceeds support local charities. During 2020 & 2021, those charities are the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) and their branches in both Simcoe and Halton counties, and Sports For Kids with their chapters in both Toronto and Mississauga.
Funclips was created for 3 important reasons:
- Bring NEW CUSTOMERS TO BUSINESS (company, enterpise, etc) and improve the loyalty standards of their "regulars".
- Provide excellent introductory offers (deals, discounts, promos, etc) for the person(s) willing to try-out the products and services of each given business.
- MAKE IT REWARDING, exciting & fun for the customer to claim (use) their amazing deals at the businesses we support.
In 1984 Franz Cauchi, then a high school student living in London Ontario, to help out his family began working part-time for a local promotional company selling coupon booklets. At the time, these $10 packages were extremely popular among its supporters and advertised the deals of well-known local restaurant, family-fun attractions, golf, dry cleaners and many other types of local businesses.
Starting in 1991, it was time for this entrepreneurial-minded youth to venture out with a partner (Charles Kent Fletcher) and start: Dollars & Sense. The Dollars & Sense company achieved success in 7 different small markets throughout south-western Ontario until Franz made a departure from the company in 1997.
Federally incorporated in 1998 with Franz Cauchi leading as it's Founder & CEO, Funclips Corp. was born and found it's new home in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Initially supporting the print industry, Funclips has brought pleasure to 100's of thousands of fans who have purchased the Funclips Coupon Book. Along the way, many various well-known charities have benefited from the awareness and funding generated by the sale of these niche promotional items.
Fast forward: The year is 2021 with Franz standing fast at his podium, orchestrating his inner team of extraordinary people to work tirelessly developing our online advertising and marketing enterpise. One of the significant priorities during these 23 years has been to meet head-on the challenges of compiling a collection of unique and special deals that supporters truly appreciate.
One of Funclips' top priorities is respecting the goals and strengths of it's partnering businesses. These Deal-Sponsors, if you will, whether they be the local pizzeria, golf course, car wash, dry cleaner, ice cream shop, or family-attraction are on a mission to bring the very best incentives to it's customers: both regular and new.
Today, the Funclips main office is located in the heart of Corso Italia, 1691 Dufferin Street (@ St. Clair Ave) Toronto and has been proudly supporting and been part of this wonderful community since 2001!
