What would be my main roles as a franchise owner?

Compiling lists of local events and activities relevant and interesting to the target market of primary school children and their families. Producing editorial/feature content. A great deal of material is available free of charge to franchisees on their portal. An average franchisee works circa 24 hours per week.

Can I balance running the business around my family activities or other commitments?

Raring2go! Business | Website and Magazine Publishing FranchiseAbsolutely. Raring2go! is not part time but it is very flexible. Most franchisees are parents of school age children who want to maintain the flexibility of caring for their family whilst working and earning.

Greater time input is required at the beginning of the journey with Raring2go! but in time, most of their franchisees are able to take nearly all of the school holiday time (13 weeks) in order to have no childcare costs and spend time with their families. 

What qualifications or experience do I need?

Raring2go! Business | Website and Magazine Publishing Franchise

Raring2go! provide training, but in essence all franchisees will need either experience of or a natural disposition for advertising sales.

They will need to be able to build friendly working relationships with businesses and have the confidence to sell advertising space via phone, face to face and via email / letters. 

Franchisees will need an eye for detail and also not be afraid to roll up their sleeves when production time approaches.

What training is provided?

Raring2go! provide full training in all aspects of their IT systems which include their proprietorial Magazine Management System, CRM and content management system for their website. They also train them in running the awards and using social media effectively for business.

Raring2go! Business | Website and Magazine Publishing FranchiseHow many magazines do franchisees produce each year?

Raring2go! is a seasonal, quarterly magazine so there are four editions per annum. Each edition is a minimum of 32 pages x 10,000 copies.

Clearly, as a business matures, the page count and production quantity increase, bring of course slightly higher print costs but also increased profitability.

Do you hold an annual conference?

Raring2go! hold an annual conference every year where all franchisees attend. This normally takes place in mid-January as this is when there is a natural lull in production between winter and spring editions.

Raring2go! fluctuate venues between the north, the midlands and the south. In addition, throughout the year there are regional meetings between franchisees where the franchisor also attends. Finally, once a month there is a remote coffee house Zoom (like Skype) call which brings franchisees together to discuss a range of subject and topics. 

Will I be able to purchase additional territories?

Yes. Raring2go! offer a significant incentive for franchisees to purchase secondary and tertiary territories but at a fraction of the cost of the first one. Quite a few of their franchisees have second and third territories.

What sort of benefits might I realise once the business has matured?

A rewarding and flexible home based business which as an asset will increase in value. A regular monthly income (as long as the franchisee puts in the effort and time). The option of still being available for your family commitments. Generous holidays. No child care costs. No stress or expensive commute. Membership of a network of engaged franchisees who work with one another locally, regionally and nationally.  

What is the investment?

A Raring2go! franchise costs £15,995 + VAT and comes with an all-inclusive start up package, so there really are no hidden costs. They are a franchisor with over 11 years’ experience operating Raring2go! successfully in the UK, so they know how tough starting out in business is and how stressful the first year of operation can be.

That’s why they are putting their money where their mouth is and committing to reinvesting over £10,000 straight back in to their new franchisee’s businesses. Raring2Go! are doing this by waiving all licence fees for the first 12 months and covering the print costs of the first four editions of a new franchisee’s magazine.

This means that for the first 12 months of trading, new franchisees can focus 100% on building their business, raising awareness locally, developing relationships with new accounts and making money… without the burden or distraction of invoices from head office.
