Northview and University of Toledo graduate Chris Markho has recently added a new business, Local Door Coupons, to his portfolio of enterprises. He and a partner, Andrew Hillabrand, recently acquired the franchise for northwest Ohio.

“We are starting in Sylvania and will publish once a quarter beginning the end of November. We will print 15,000 copies, which we will distribute to homes over a 15 day period throughout Sylvania,” Markho pointed out. “People really enjoy coupons and we have an attractive product with enticing offers,” he said. “We can accommodate up to 16 non competing, exclusive businesses,” he said.

According to Markho the company is headquartered in Miami, Fla. and has franchise locations in 14 cities.

Markho said he has been operating his own businesses for the past eight years since his graduation from UT. Four years ago, he opened a Subway restaurant on Stickney Avenue and Matzinger Road. Last year, he opened a Krispy Krunchy Chicken adjacent to the Subway restaurant.

In addition, Markho is a licensed Realtor with Wilson Auction & Realty Co. specializing in commercial real estate.
