Chris Cummings started his Raring2go! franchise 18 months ago and now looks after the Brighton, Brentwood and Billericay territories.

Raring2go! - Chris CummingsRaring2go! publishes a high quality quarterly A5 magazine which provides parents and carers of primary school children with a definitive hyper local guide of what to do and where to go. Franchise owners generate income by selling advertising space in the magazine and online to local companies. Production, printing and distribution of the magazine is carried out centrally by the franchisor and a full business start-up and on-going training and support package is provided. The magazine aims to be fun and informative and frequently carries exclusive interviews with celebrity parents.

Chris explains what appealed to him about the Raring2Go! franchise:
"I have always worked in media, events and advertising sales so a magazine publishing franchise was a natural choice for me. I met the managing director , Freddie St George, at a networking breakfast and was impressed by what I heard about the business. I now have the support of a national network and the magazine itself is of a very high quality so it is not hard to sell advertising space. The business is very flexible in terms of hours so it gives me the freedom to pursue my other business interests such as sales training consultancy. The first year has been spent getting the magazine out there and telling people about it, however now I have repeat customers who continue to rebook space because they know it gets results."

He added:
"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 and can be run from a home office so overheads are low. It is vital to research your local area. If you put the hard work in during the first 12 months and build up relationships with clients then it will start to reap results."
