Raring2go! franchise relaunches under new owners

Magazine franchise opportunity Raring2go! has re-launched under new owners and is set to expand across the UK and increase its support for existing franchise owners.

Sussex-based Mojo Publishing Ltd has bought and now manages the family magazine, which offers local guides about what to do and where to go for families with children up to the age of 11.

New owner Freddie St George is now targeting anyone who thinks they have the ability to run a franchise following redundancy or as a home-based business that fits in with bringing up school-age children.

Mr St George said: "Having worked with the original owners in a publishing capacity, we got to know the magazine really well before we bought it, so we fully understand the potential for growth and exactly what support to offer new and existing franchise owners."

"A Raring2Go! franchise will deliver a sustainable business which is fun to run and can be fitted in around raising school-age children. Our most successful franchise owners work hard but manage to achieve a good work-life balance, fulfilling their business ambitions and enjoying family life."

Raring2go! is already distributed copies quarterly in 700,000 school book bags across the country. Key target areas for new franchises are Kent, Surrey, Sussex, South West England, north and south Wales, Liverpool, Lancashire, Birmingham, London and Scotland.
