Overview

City Lifestyle - Franchise Information

The publication model is centered around creating high-end magazines that deliver valuable and local editorial content to affluent residents with no subscription fee while allowing businesses to get in the doors of households that have expendable income. The corporate office handles the design, print, and distribution of every publication letting our franchisees focus on building their book of advertorial business and collecting inspiring content. We also have launched a digital arm of  City Lifestyle that not only supports but expands your value to local businesses. We believe in you being in business for yourself but not by yourself. 

How We Support Our Franchisees

  • We have an entire team of layout designers, ad designers, corporate marketing team, and development team at our Kansas City office ready to help you succeed

Testimonials

“Having the home office and support is huge for us, because it allows us to focus on our community and sales. They take care of everything from distribution, layout, ad design and client support. All of this is done by a team of professionals. This would not be possible to do on our own without the team and allows us to focus on inspiring communities.” Andy Manz, Boulder Lifestyle
“Being a Publisher has allowed me to live out my passion and purpose by affecting change. Because of the reach and content of the magazine, it has had a tremendous impact on the community. Each month we've been able to accomplish my three personal goals of connecting our community, helping our local businesses grow, and bringing greater awareness to local charities.” Michelle Moody, West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle
