If you are looking to get your piece of the booming retail industry and have a passion for LEGOS, then look no further than the Bricks & Minifigs franchise. It is a one-stop-aftermarket LEGO toy shop with dozens of locations in the U.S. It is the largest toy store of its kind and was founded in 2010. It has been franchising since 2011. This is an attractive franchise opportunity because you don't need any prior retail business experience to run this franchise successfully. You will also be given a protected territory and a reduced fee of $10,000 per franchise you purchase. In terms of the total investment, you can expect it to range from $99,100 - $271,200. You can also expect the franchise to supply you with a complete list of approved products, signage, furniture, fixtures and technology you will need for your store. The franchise is also on the U.S. Small Business Administration's lending list, which can assist you with financing.
In terms of support and training, you can expect a five-day comprehensive training program with classroom and on-the-job training. You will learn about advertising strategies, customer service, merchandising techniques, purchase products, and much more. The franchise will also be there for you to assist with your pre-opening and grand opening. The support and training will last the entirety of your time with the business. The franchise is built on three principles: Rebuild. Reuse. Reimagine. Children and adults can enjoy the franchise's components, accessories, bulk bricks, and mini-figurines. You are also permitted to sell a limited amount of non-LEGO branded products in your store.
