Upon exiting the corporate world, Don Grindle prospected high-return, low-startup franchises that he could build and grow with his son, Walker. He hoped to find a scalable opportunity to secure his family’s legacy and guarantee personal fulfillment. By Lizzy Yeserski
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Money Pages, a leading franchise in the marketing and advertising industry, empowers entrepreneurs with affordable franchise opportunities offering multiple revenue streams. Taking the entrepreneurial leap has paid off for Money Pages franchisees across the country, who are reaping the benefits with impressive expansion and industry recognition.
“Franchising with Money Pages was the best decision I ever made. There’s no better business model or company to work with,” said Florida franchisee Don Grindle. “You can’t beat the low startup costs or the flexibility to work from home. We made money by our third month and we never lost any, even through a pandemic. It’s a proven investment.”
Now celebrating 10 years in operation, Don and his son Walker Grindle scaled to 1.4 million in annual circulation across four Florida territories. The business is Volusia County’s largest direct mail publication and is looking to add a fifth territory soon. Though the Grindles held no previous sales experience, they achieved over $1 million in sales by 2019.
“What we earned in a year of sales when we started, we make in a month now,” said Georgia franchisee Brian Long, who has seen similar success. “We’ve quadrupled our revenue, we’re winning awards and growing.”
Brian and his co-owner, wife Ramona Long, are celebrating four years of operation while launching their fourth territory this spring. The franchise grew from serving 30,000 households to 115,000, plus a robust digital revenue stream.
“It allows us to connect with and give back to the community,” said Long, after the team was awarded Best of Cobb for Advertising Services for the third year in a row. “And so much is thanks to the corporate Money Pages team. Unlike other franchises, they support us and offer training and mentorship. They treat us like family.”

By Brianna Bohn
When gyms closed at the beginning of the pandemic, many people lost their sense of community as they turned to exercising on their indoor bikes or lifting weights in their backyards. Since then, there has been a significant increase in foot traffic to gyms as well as web searches about them, according to the research firm Jefferies, and gym goers are on the hunt for something new.
