‘Entrepreneur’ Magazine Names JBF a Most Affordable Franchise
Just Between Friends ranks No. 76 on prestigious list
Starting a business can be very expensive — but it doesn’t have to be. In fact, Just Between Friends is among this year’s businesses named to Entrepreneur magazine’s list of the Top 100 Franchises for Less than $50,000.
“We never tire of being recognized in the industry and among our peers,” says Shannon Wilburn, CEO and co-founder of Just Between Friends. “I’m honored to be commended for offering an outstanding opportunity at an affordable price. That’s important because we want our franchisees to grow their businesses and make a return on their investment as quickly as possible. When the barriers to entry are lower, that means success can come sooner.”
Just Between Friends is the leading pop-up consignment sales event franchise in North America. We got started in a Tulsa, Oklahoma, living room in 1997, and our brand has grown to 150+ franchises that host hundreds of Just Between Friends events every year — in 30 states in the U.S. By helping parents buy and sell their children’s outgrown clothing and items, we have become a nationally recognized brand that is continuing to grow like wildfire across the country.
JBF’s place on the Top 100 “most affordable” franchises was determined by the scores the company received in Entrepreneur’s 2018 Franchise 500 ranking. Those scores are determined by an evaluation of more than 150 data points in the areas of costs and fees, size and growth, franchisee support, brand strength and financial strength and stability.
Just Between Friends franchise offers lower startup costs
and higher profit potential
The initial investment to begin a JBF sale franchise ranges from $38,555 to $54,575 for one territory; from $65,585 to $97,310 for two territories; and from $91,615 to $139,065 for three territories. A JBF franchise offers a relatively quick ramp-up time and tons of support to ensure that sales events are successful.
The beauty of our model is that your business can be as large or as small as you would like to manage. While some of our work-from-home franchise owners are stay-at-home parents who own one territory, many own multiple territories. Our minimum requirement is that you host two sales annually per territory.
A lower initial investment and ease of scalability mean that owners may see a quicker return on their investment with the potential for long-term success. Our 10 most successful franchises grossed between $540,000 and $1.1 million for 2017 (earnings are based on multiple factors, and your results may vary).
“For many aspiring business owners, the start-up fees and costs to franchise are cost-prohibitive,” says Lori Lalli, Franchise Recruiter. “Not so with JBF. We have an affordable initial investment and a business model that’s easy to scale. Plus, with a JBF franchise, you’re doing work that serves your community and helps your neighbors make and save money. A rewarding business that’s affordable and meaningful? JBF checks off all those boxes.”
