Since its franchise opportunity was launched earlier this year, About Magazines has quickly grown to eight locations in the Dublin area.

The company is keen to continue its expansion and is looking for suitable franchise owners to operate in territories across Ireland. About Magazines is offering a three-year franchise agreement that includes a comprehensive Operations Manual, which provides information on all areas of publishing the magazine.

The franchise package also includes an exclusive area, training, ongoing support, editorial content and a website. The franchisor will also organise the design and print of each magazine.

No prior publishing experience is required to own an About Magazine franchise and, according to the company, each magazine generates around €3,000 profit and franchise owners can publish up to four separate magazines. The franchise fee is €8,999 and there are no ongoing royalty fees.
