Chris Cummings started his Raring2go! franchise 18 months ago and now looks after three editions in Brighton, Brentwood and Billericay and Bristol.
I had worked in media, events and advertising sales previously so a magazine publishing franchise was a natural choice, I researched Raring2go! and was really impressed with what I found.
I now have the support of a national network and because the magazine itself is of a very high quality it is not hard to sell advertising space. The business is very flexible in terms of hours, the overheads are low so the rewards can be what you want them to be.
The level of support both from head office and from other franchise owners has been great. I would certainly recommend the franchise to others as it offers a good work life balance. If you put the hard work in during the first 12 months and build up relationships with clients then you’ll get the results you want.
