Two Guys and a Truck

Residential real estate firm Accent Realtors has found a creative way to give back to the community. It has begun offering the use of a moving truck to local non-profit organizations.

The 14-foot box truck is available free of charge.

“The moving truck provides Accent Realtors with a great way to give back to the community, beyond the regular volunteer work and cash donations,” said Paul Wheeler, president of the company.

Wheeler said several non-profits have already taken advantage of the truck, including the American Heart Association, which used it to haul items from the organization’s office to LaFortune Park for the annual Heart Walk fundraiser.

“Any local non-profit, church or community club is welcome to use the moving truck,” said Wheeler.

Organizations that want to use the truck are asked to provide a $100 refundable deposit and to bring it back with a full tank of gas.

Magazine Franchises Get Sporting Chance

High School Sports the Magazine has sold two franchises, the first such sale for the company.

T. Lynn Mitchell owns the Tulsa-based franchise, which debuted its publication in August 2005. The High School Sports the Magazine franchises will publish in the Oklahoma City and Little Rock, Ark., markets. Oklahoma restauranteur Kevin Hern will own both publications when the deal with High School Sports the Magazine closes on Sept. 4.

According to Natalie Cordell, franchise coordinator for High School Sports the Magazine, the deal with Hern also offers him first right of refusal for the Dallas, Texas, market.

Details of the transaction were not disclosed, but according to the publication’s website the franchise fee for a High School Sports the Magazine franchise starts at $50,000 and estimates a total initial investment of $125,000 to $175,000.
