Kids' franchisees


We all love kids. So when you already love them then why not get involved with them a bit more? A kid’s franchise may be a chance for you to fulfill this great wish. Every year the average child in America outgrows $1000 worth of toys, clothes and equipments and parents tend to replace them with new ones. Hence the need for quality children’s products at affordable prices is growing steadily. Kid-to-Kid is a successful store as it creates an environment and offers a selection that appeals to customers who other wise don’t stand at a thrift store. Parents feel uncomfortable shopping for their children in a second hand store even if prices were low. But the little pink door that greets kids when they arrive, the look and feel of the marketing materials and displays, all of these give the customer a sense that they are different. Hence Kid-to-Kid was ranked one by Franchise 500 in 2005. Kid-to-Kid storeowners are also different from most franchisees as their success is a natural result of meeting customers' needs. Participation in the Kid-to-Kid buying and selling process is a win-win-win situation. Families win when they receive cash for recycling their used children's products and parents win as they purchase quality used products at a fraction of the retail price.
