About Magazines is looking for franchise owners to fill its territories across Ireland.

The About Magazines opportunity offers franchise owners the chance to publish a free bi-monthly magazine that contains content specific to their local area.

Originally launched at the Irish Franchise Show, About Magazines now has eight magazines in the Dublin area.

According to the company, each About Magazines issue generates around €3,000 profit and franchise owners can publish up to four separate magazines a year.

Franchise owners do not need any previous publishing experience, as they will receive a comprehensive operations manual, following the About Magazines model for magazine production, sales and marketing, client management, profit forecasting and distribution.

As part of the franchise agreement, franchise owners get their own exclusive area, initial and ongoing training, editorial content and their own website. As well as this the franchisor will organise the design and print of each magazine.
