Own a Barter Franchise

IMS Barter, what is today a remarkably successful North American barter exchange, began as a humble company. Don Mardak, the founder of IMS, started from his home office in New Berlin, Wisconsin in 1985. Since then, we have steadily and carefully built the most respected trade dollar in circulation today and the most comprehensive trading network of small businesses in the history of barter. We set out every day to change the way the world does business. We accomplish that through our dedicated employees and satisfied members. Today, with 19 offices serving 52 markets, IMS has branded the largest full-service, membership-based trading network in the United States and Canada.
