What is Mumbler?

Mumbler is a hyper-local website that provides everything that a local family or visitor to a town needs to know.

Our aim is to help make family life easier by having all the information that a family needs in one place.

From local days out to classes & playgroups, flexible jobs, family-friendly places to eat, local halls to hire for parties, details of children’s centres, what’s on at the local library  & so much more.

We also hold real-life events for our local parenting community such as meet-ups, family fun days & even Mumbler Awards.

The websites & social media communities are completely free for parents to use, revenue is earned from advertising. Businesses who want to market their product or service pay us to advertise on our Mumbler websites.

A Mumbler franchise is an award-winning completely flexible business; a business that can be run and managed around your family, pre-school children, school hours and school holidays.

Not only that, running a Mumbler franchise puts you at the core of your local parenting community.

Mumbler is a well-established network of hyper-local parenting websites which provide a wealth of information to families, parents and carers. Initially established in 2012 by mum of 2, Sally Haslewood as a means of centralising the huge volume of online information for local families, the Mumbler brand became synonymous with community, trust and parenting support.

Whilst not exclusively targeted at stay-at-home parents who are looking for an opportunity to create an income that fits around their children, a Mumbler franchise is an ideal opportunity to build a business that is run from home, based around your lifestyle with few overheads and a fantastic support network from HQ and the existing Mumbler franchisees.

Unfortunately there is no such thing as a typical Mumbler week and a Mumbler franchise is never “finished”! There is always something new to be added, something to be researched or somewhere to be reviewed.

To give you a very rough idea though, a typical Mumbler franchisee works at least 15-25 hours per week to keep the franchise going and in reality, many of us work far more than this. It just doesn’t feel like work because being out & about in our community is our passion and much of it (visiting classes, attractions & posting on social media) is what we would be doing with our children anyway.

The role is completely flexible and you can work at a time & from a location that suits you. The bottom line is that the harder you work, the higher your earning potential is.
