What Our Franchisees Say

Being a Families® franchisee provides flexibility around family life and variety – writing (which I love), selling and admin. Not only that, you are working for yourself – no boss and no office politics.Claire Bottomley, Leeds


Training and support has been fantastic. You don’t just become a franchisee, you become part of a community with so much advice, help and answers to all questions you could possibly have. Constantly we are updated with training and support, to keep the business model current and fresh! I have had so much fun taking over my magazine and making it my own!


I have the flexibility to be there through school holidays or when one of the children is ill. I even get to include my children in my work as we review local shows, classes, parties and activities.Jayne Keep, Manchester and Cheshire
