Our stores are very well organized, clean, smell good, and have friendly customer service compared to most second hand stores. With gross profit margins averaging between 64-66% franchisees can earn a very good living with one store or can create a real income generator with multiple stores.

When evaluating a franchise opportunity, reading and understanding the current version of their FDD is a necessity. Considering the benefits of franchising, such as established brand recognition and support from the franchisor, it's important to also take into account franchise fees and franchising royalty fees. Since most franchisors are privately owned companies, the current versions of their FDDs are typically not available unless requested directly from them.
