Every parent should have access to a Scallymag! Could you be the one to create yours for your town?
The ideal franchise owner is a mum who has recently stopped work to raise a family. She cares about her community and has a personal need for a stimulating, rewarding, flexible part-time, yet profitable career.
You do not have to be a writer, sales expert, designer or have previous business management experience, but you will have to be bright, literate, organized, enthusiastic and be driven to succeed.
To buy your first area, the total cost is £2,000. That is split into £475 initial training fee and set-up costs, followed by the franchise area fee of £1,525, payable when you are ready to sign the agreement and begin work.
After that there is an ongoing fee of 5% of turnover, payable each issue you produce. Scallymag recommend a working capital of about £1,500 to get your first issue to press.
This franchise begins as a five year opportunity and, as the magazine becomes established and advertising sales gains momentum, the opportunity to increase revenue is unlimited.
A Scallymag editor typically produces four magazines per year, after year two Scallymag would expect a profit to be earned of £12,000 – 15,000, after year four around £20,000. Further income can be generated by selling your skills to other franchisees (by selling your features or your design skill), or even taking on another area to create another magazine.
There is enormous satisfaction in knowing the difference you are making to the parents and carers of your local community. To overhear parents praising my magazine, whilst standing behind them in a queue, is… fantastic!Tracey - Rossendale Scallywag Editor
