Just Between Friends is a rewarding business that is easy to start and simple to scale. At a minimum, each franchise location holds two sales a year with the opportunity to hold more sales in the area. Typically, the more sales you conduct, the higher your gross revenues.
In 2019, JBF had 133 franchise locations that conducted both a fall and spring JBF Consignment Sale with varying gross revenues. According to franchisee reporting:
The top 10 grossing sales ranged from $611,151 to more than $1.3 million in annual gross sales revenue.
The bottom 10 ranged from $16,838 to $44,400 in annual gross sales revenue.*
The work-from-home franchise is proud to announce that, for three years in a row, Just Between Friends made the Top 10 List of “Best Franchises to Buy,” by Forbes. (See Awards) The reason we rank so highly is due, in large part, to the continued growth of the thrift shopping marketplace. More consumers are choosing “resale” over “retail” experiences for a variety of economic and socially conscious reasons.
Our Franchise Owners
Our Owners Say It Best…
I CHOSE JBF BECAUSE: I wanted something that I felt was well-suited to my personality and skillset. I loved the idea of a seasonal business that allowed me to go “full-throttle”, then take a break and regroup. I can be very intense, so this gave me a chance to balance out that part of my personality during the off-season. Having been an entrepreneur already, loving consignment sales, and being an event planner at heart, honestly—I felt like it was something that I could absolutely ROCK!
I CHOSE JBF BECAUSE: I love it! I am always looking to save money, JBF was my favorite sale each time it came around. I wanted something to give my brain a purpose while staying home with three kids and I got so much more than that.
I CHOSE JBF BECAUSE: Finances were really tight when my husband and I were expecting our son, and JBF was a complete Godsend. My husband had graduated from college six months before, and I still had two years left. We were SO concerned about finances and finding JBF was a complete Godsend. We were able to get everything that we needed for $800. Fast forward three years, we were presented the opportunity to buy a JBF, and I instantly jumped on it. I wanted to be able to give other people the same opportunity I had been given.
