With two test issues under its belt, the Hearst Corporation-Food Network partnership announced it will increase its rate base to 900,000 starting with its October 2009 issue. It will jump another 200,000 with its August 2010 issue.

FNM will publish four more issues in 2009. Currently, the magazine boasts 550,000 paid subscriptions.
