In August 2020, Macaroni Kid was acquired by CertifiKID. Widely recognized as one of the best deal websites for parents, CertifiKID helps parents provide incredible experiences for their kids on a budget. From family outings to kids’ summer camps, to children’s theatre and museums, to birthday parties and family getaways, CertifiKID connects parents with amazing family-friendly fun in your community at prices that won’t break the bank.
In April 2019, CertifiKID was featured on ABC’s Shark Tank. CertifiKID founders and Washington, D.C.-area parents, Jamie & Brian Ratner, secured a strategic investment with Kevin O’Leary (aka “Mr. Wonderful”). The partnership catapulted CertifiKID into expanding its family-friendly deals to parents nationwide.
Paired with Macaroni Kid’s twelve years’ expertise in delivering hyper-local content on kids activities and family-friendly events, destinations, products and services in more than 4,000 communities, the acquisition makes us one of the largest parent-focused digital media and advertising companies in the country, now reaching millions of families nationwide.
With Macaroni Kid joining the CertifiKID family, we are thrilled to be offering our parent subscribers so much more than hyperlocal content! We’re now the premier resource for moms & dads nationwide to not only discover but also save big on everything their families want and need.
Hi! I am Shawn Mussington Hall your publisher of Greensboro Macaroni Kid. I am an educator, a Mother of four, a lover of all things scholarships and yes a bit of a thrill seeker. Greensboro Macaroni Kid was brought back to life by a college buddy of mine and then I took over in August 2017. My continuous goal is to fill this publication with everything family which makes up Greensboro! I grew up in this city and constantly see all the little things which make this a pretty awesome family-oriented city.
