Since its launch in 1985, The Franchise Magazine has recognised that distribution is the key to success. Fourteen nationwide distribution channels include major promotions at Retail Newsagents, JobCentres, Redundancy & Resettlement Advisers, Banks, Accountants, Solicitors, Business Links, Franchise and Business-to-Business Exhibitions, Online promotions, Hotels plus support through direct mailing to subscribers and the Hot Prospect Database. An estimated 250,000 people are at any one time looking to own a Franchise, and the vast majority will read The Franchise Magazine before making an investment decision.

Britain's most successful Franchisee recruitment publication

Innovative Schedules
Franchise Development Services, the publishing organisation, was established in 1981 and is dedicated to facilitating National and International Franchising, assisting both Franchisors and Franchisees. Eight editions of The Franchise Magazine allow for a maximum return on Franchisee recruitment investment. Experience indicates that daily, weekly and monthly publications are often too costly, while bi-monthly and quarterly are too infrequent. The solution: eight targeted editions to cover the year and published to coincide with specific Franchise exhibitions.


Our 12 month Advertising and Editorial Programmes continually provide the best returns for Franchisors actively recruiting Franchisees nationwide. By taking advantage of the experience and expertise of our Editorial Team, Franchisors can be sure of the very best results.

The Franchise Magazine has a well-organised and extremely professional team that specialise in creating Franchisee recruitment campaigns that continually produce excellent results. Their experience in interviewing existing Franchisees and identifying the key factors that influence all readers is second-to-none, so that readers are reassured that every opportunity can deliver to their expectations.
