Just Between Friends consignment sales franchise offers a career with affordable start-up costs and high potential for profit and personal satisfaction
If you’ve always wanted to own a business, be your own boss and have a flexible schedule that allows you to work around the rest of your life, then opening a Just Between Friends (JBF) consignment sales franchise may be perfect for you. 2018 can be the year that all your dreams come true.“We know there are hundreds of folks who have aspirations for business ownership who simply haven’t yet found that perfect fit,” says Shannon Wilburn, CEO and co-founder of Just Between Friends. “JBF is an extraordinary opportunity. We offer a low initial investment with high-profit potential. We are part of a thriving industry that focuses on thrift and recycling. The core mission of our business is to help others which is both motivating and gratifying. What more could you ask for in a work-from-home business?”JBF has exploded since our founding in 1997 and has since become North America’s largest pop-up consignment sales event franchise. The original sale earned just $2,000 in Wilburn’s living room. Now system-wide sales for the company total almost $30 million. We have more than 149 franchisees in 30 states . Most importantly, we’ve helped over 1 million families nationwide save money on the children’s clothing, games, toys, maternity and baby gear they need for their growing families.
JBF expects more franchise growth in 2018
We have no plans of slowing down! In 2018, we look forward to expanding our company with more franchise owners in communities across the U.S. We are actively recruiting energetic and passionate entrepreneurs who want to partner with us to help families in their communities.“The JBF franchise opportunity is about so much more than making money,” says Wilburn. “We want our owners to be financially successful, and we have found that financial success comes from taking care of our own communities – helping those people we care about most.”“One of the most awesome things our owners are able to do is empower their communities,” says Dawn Pfannenstiel, Director of Training and Support with Just Between Friends who is also a franchise owner herself.“We’re able to bring recognition to our nonprofits and help them with their missions. We give families in the community an outlet to make more money, helping with that bottom line and stretching that budget. There’s nothing more empowering than mailing those consignment checks because you know the benefit that money will be to those families,” Pfannenstiel says.“These families can now afford to go on vacation, or they can put the money toward bills,” she adds. “To know that you were able to be a part of putting all of that together and making it happen for all those families—it’s amazing. We get shoppers all the time who say, ‘I could not clothe my children without you.’ So, for me as the Director of Training and Support and a JBF owner, to give the tools to new owners coming in so they may empower their communities, it’s truly amazing.”
