ZCode Magazines is a privately-owned, rapidly-growing multi-media company based in the 4S Ranch community of San Diego near Rancho Bernardo.
The company provides innovative community magazines delivered to targeted demographics in North San Diego County, along with related websites and newsletters. In addition, the ZCode team provides consultation to businesses on creative marketing opportunities utilizing social media, email, multi-media, direct mail, custom publishing and other services.
Started in 2007, the company first published the international Baja Home Directory, a print publication and companion website. Then in 2009, the company expanded into community publishing with the launch of 92127 Magazine, a glossy publication distributed to every home and condominium in 4S Ranch, Del Sur, High Country West, Santa Fe Valley, Westwood, Santaluz and surrounding areas (west of Interstate 15 and Rancho Bernardo, and north of Rancho Penasquitos).
The next year, ZCode launched 92129 Magazine, which is delivered to every home in Rancho Penasquitos (west of Interstate 15 along the Highway 56 Corridor – and south adjacent to 92127 Magazine’s coverage area). In 2011, the company added 92131 Magazine, circulated to every home in Scripps Ranch (east of Interstate 15 and south of Poway and Carmel Mountain Ranch areas). 92128 Magazine (Rancho Bernardo, Carmel Mountain Ranch, Sabre Springs) and 92064 Magazine (Poway) were launched shortly afterward.
In the spring of 2012, ZCode Magazines launched its sixth publication, 92130 Magazine serving the Carmel Valley and Torrey Highlands area. After fully adopting its new division name (ZCode Magazines previously operated under its parent company’s name, Susco Media Inc.), the announcement of three more publications was made. 92024 Magazine (launching in July 2012 and serving the town of Encinitas), 92009 Magazine (August 2012, serving southeast Carlsbad), and 92011 Magazine (September 2012, serving southwest Carlsbad) bring the total number of publications to nine.
ZCode Magazines’s philosophy is simple and specific: We are focused on our customers, consistently delivering a higher standard of service and exceeding expectations; we are committed to the sustained growth and expansion of our operations; we become involved and support the communities we serve; we foster an ongoing entrepreneurial spirit throughout our organization; and we aspire to hire, develop, reward, promote and retain the best people.
While ZCode Magazines is relatively new, the company was founded and is managed by executives with extensive experience in all areas of the publishing industry and varied backgrounds including broadcast, printing, target marketing, websites and other electronic mediums, video, and more. The team includes dynamic professionals with superb knowledge of the San Diego area markets, small business planning and management, and creative marketing techniques.
