Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) August 29, 2007
High School Sports - The Magazine recently sold three more franchises of their popular magazine, adding to the rapidly growing demand for the publication in communities across America. The three new franchises will cover St. Paul, MN, Fort Worth, TX, and Greater Reading, PA.
Six High School Sports - The Magazine franchises have already been sold in Eastern Oklahoma, Western Oklahoma, Northwest Arkansas, Central Arkansas, Central Kansas, and Central Indiana. The addition of the three new franchises strengthens the magazine's hold in the high school sports publishing marketplace.
"We are extremely excited about the growth of HSSTM in these major markets as well as the diversity that each market brings to the HSSTM operating territory. Most importantly is the quality and character of each individual franchisee that will make the HSSTM even stronger. The response has been phenomenal in our other markets and we expect the same if not a greater response in these markets. The St. Paul and Reading markets expand our reach in the north northeast and Ft. Worth solidifies our presence in the south and is our first franchise in our largest market in our operating territory," said Kevin Hern, CEO of High School Sports - The Magazine.
The St. Paul franchise, which will launch October 1, 2007, was purchased by prominent entrepreneur Bob Burk, who is the publisher and CEO. Mike King is the president. Both businessmen are from the Tulsa, OK, area.
The Fort Worth franchise was purchased by Kevin and Hannah Erickson. The magazine will launch November 1, 2007.
The Greater Reading franchise was purchased by Steve and Lisa Miller and will launch November 1, 2007. Mr. and Mrs. Miller have sales backgrounds.
High School Sports - The Magazine is free to the community and draws both regional and national corporate sponsors. Articles in the publication are typically written by local writers and provide insightful information about all aspects of high school sports.
The magazine has drawn a flood of inquiries from potential franchisees, and many regions across the country are ripe for distribution. The publication draws entrepreneurs with its steady advertising revenue, the opportunity for community involvement, and fun and exciting content.
