Since the launch of Edible Ojai and Ventura County in 2002, Edible Communities (Edible Communities) has grown to include more than 90 local Edible magazines and websites across the U.S. and Canada. Edible publications serve as a voice in the food world, covering local food, how it’s grown and harvested, what defines regional flavors and trends, and how to prepare and present food in a way that’s rooted in local culture. Now in it's 15th year, Edible Communities is the largest media company exclusively devoted to the local good food movement.
This is an opportunity to purchase the license to publish Edible CT East. You will have your own territory which includes Hartford, Windham, New London, Middlesex and Tolland county. This is the last license available in the New England region. While you will be your own boss, you will have a host of resources available to help support you including vendors for distributing the magazine, graphic designers, magazine layout, web hosting, printing and more.
Again, this is a business opportunity to be a Publisher. Its a chance to own your own business, take control of your finances and set your own schedule. You build your business by writing or hiring freelance writers to submit stories, selling subscriptions and selling digital and print advertising. You keep most of your ad revenue while partnering with a respected and award-winning brand.
Edible Communities is made up of a network of independent entrepreneurs. Publishers love what they do, are engaged in their community and have authority over their own business decisions. You own your territory. You develop your relationship with your advertisers. You set your rates and you manage your own business; you are given guidelines but also freedom to run your business the way you want.
Edible Publishers have a wide variety of backgrounds, yet all share some common traits: they are goal-oriented, entrepreneurial individuals with a successful business background, optimistic outlook, and knowledge of their local community.
Since your revenues are generated through advertising sales and sales promotions, direct experience in B2B sales and marketing is highly beneficial. It is not necessary to have experience in publishing, graphic design or layout since help is available in those areas..
