Money Pages magazine expands to Tennessee

Chattanooga resident helps others save money with new business venture

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – Chattanooga residents will enjoy more deals and savings when Money Pages begins mailing monthly local coupons in August.

Lifelong Chattanooga resident Jason Richardson chose to launch a Money Pages franchise because he wants to help people and make a difference in his community. Richardson is a community-oriented resident. Staying active in Chattanooga is important to him. Previously, Richardson worked in the nonprofit sector where he managed donation sites and served as the purchasing administrator for Goodwill Industries of Chattanooga.

“Money Pages gives me the opportunity to connect with the community in which I was born and raised,” said Richardson. “Far too often, small businesses get overlooked. Money Pages offers those in the community a reminder and another good reason – saving money – to buy locally in order to grow our city.”

Money Pages began in 2001 when Alan Worley took the risk of starting a new business with no guarantees. The risk paid off with hundreds of businesses choosing Money Pages as a way to reach local consumers every month.

“We’re excited to start mailing Money Pages in Chattanooga,” said Worley. “Jason has a passion to help business owners and help his neighbors save money. We have a very high retention rate and have for years because businesses see a return on their investment.”

Money Pages helps business owners reach targeted consumers with a variety of special offers in their neighborhoods. Richardson’s support of local small businesses is more than just talk: While other coupon magazines are national, the Chattanooga Money Pages itself is a locally owned business.

Meet our first franchisee

I’m Don Grindle and I want to tell you more about my new Money Pages franchise in Ormond Beach. After spending over 25 years at a large corporation, I decided to leave corporate America and look for something that would be a good fit for me and my family.

I had always dreamed of owning my own business and that dream has finally come true. I found my home when I came across Money Pages. Money Pages has been in publication over 13 years. After spending time with the founder, many employees and clients of the company, I saw what an impact they have made in other cities and knew I wanted to be a part of it. Their extensive expertise and system made it very easy for me to work with them to bring Money Pages, the only locally owned publication that is mailed directly to homes, to Ormond Beach.

We are excited to have completed our first issue with 24 pages, exceeding even our own expectations! I highly recommend Money Pages for your own franchise opportunity!

Sincerely,
Don Grindle
President, WDG Enterprises, Ormond Beach Florida

Money Pages Starts Franchising

You know that magazine you get in your mailbox once a month with the coupons and event details? It’s expanding. Money Pages of Florida Inc. is now selling franchises.

President and CEO Alan Worley gave me a call today to share the news, and he’s pretty excited. He sold his first franchise in March to Don Grindle in Ormond Beach. Franchises cost $25,000.

The Money Pages of Ormond Beach published its first edition in June and with a big success Worley said, exceeding its minimum page count requirement.

The push to franchise has been a long time coming. Worley said he has been thinking about it for more than seven years, and to finally make jump has been “mind boggling.”

“It’s an unbelievable feeling to realize that the magazine we design in Jacksonville is impacting so many people in so many places,” he said. Worley said the reception from Ormond Beach has been “very neat.” The City of Ormond Beach bought the front cover to promote its Fourth of July festivities.

He started by bringing Chris Sexton down from Greenwood, S.C., five years ago. Now Sexton is the director of franchise development and is in charge of working with individuals interested in owning a magazine in their own market, optimizing the training program and fully supporting franchisees once in operation. He also leads franchising media and public relations campaigns, franchising website and search engine optimization and trade show publicity to market the franchise opportunity.

Worley said they would like to have about 15 franchises spread throughout the Southeast, running between South Carolina and Texas.

He is in the process of talking with other potential franchisees.
