In the late 1980s Tidbits started as a community newspaper in a small town in Montana. Our paper grew into a full-colour tabloid with coverage across the southern States. In 2008 Canada joined the family and Tidbits can now be found in British Columbia. Now with 20 years of experience, and presence in 250 markets in the US and Canada, we’re still looking for more territories.
To put it simply, we are a national publishing franchise. We provide customers with the fun facts and interesting stories as they sip their hot cup of morning coffee, wait for their car, doctor or meal. We bring them fun puzzles and light news stories while avoiding the heavy stuff that can darken your day.
Starting a Tidbits publishing franchise means no royalty fees to pay, and you enjoy the comfort and ease of being your own boss. The initial investment and overhead costs are small, but the return on investment is high. Secure a territory in your community now before someone else snaps up the chance!
The newspaper market is highly competitive, but many papers limit themselves by only running content that fits into a narrow niche. This can lack local flavour, and that’s where we specialize.
Tidbits allow you the freedom to run a vast array of material. Your weekly media fee enables you to run syndicated columns, articles, puzzles, and comics. Only part of the paper is designated to run specific content and this is to help with brand awareness in the Tidbits network. After meeting content requirements, the franchisee can fill the rest of the paper with their own material.
For just $8,500 you can launch your own publishing franchise. We supply you with everything you need to get started and your success is always foremost on our mind. Our expertise is available to you, and we’ll help you figure out the best way to get started so you can kick things off with a bang and draw in a significant readership. You pay us no royalty fees, only a weekly media fee, and this covers the expense of buying content and running your website. No matter the size of your paper, there will only be one fee to pay.
At Tidbits University you will go through an intense three days of workshops, lectures, and programming to train you in all aspects of our publishing franchise. Representatives from Tidbits Head Office and publishing industry leaders will be on hand offering their advice and seeing you through.
We provide you with all needed marketing materials and our support network will be there to keep you focused. With our seasoned expertise we’re sure that you’ll find success with our publishing franchise and deliver good news to the people of your town.
