Inactive Franchise Profile — The Homesteader

Based on our research, this is no longer an active franchise opportunity. Please contact us if franchises are still available.

The Homesteader is a newspaper targeted to people who have just purchased a home.

Their concept is to help local businesses reach this valuable target market by producing a high-quality newspaper and direct mailing it to new homeowners in a local area for about a year.

Each edition of The Homesteader is produced and distributed locally and is independently owned and operated.

The publications have articles that are specifically written for new homeowners, covering such subjects as home improvement, decorating, antiques, things to do in the area (movies, museums, restaurants), family activities and events, local community calendar, and so forth.

Although we don't believe this business opportuntity is a franchise opportunity in the classic sense, it's still a great way to start your entrepreneurial career. If you are interested in starting a publishing business, this may be the right opportunity for you.

You will target a highly valuable local readership with articles and contests that make the paper valuable to that audience. To succeed, you will need to sell advertising to local businesses who want to introduce themselves to all new homeowners moving to the area. Given the value of that demographic, it shouldn't be a hard sell.
