• North America's Leading Children's and Maternity Consignment Sales Event Franchise

How Do We Define Territories?

Just Between Friends franchise owners are successful because we do an exhaustive amount of research

Location is everything in business, but it’s especially important when you’re in the pop-up consignment business. We want our franchise owners to be a hit in their communities, not only because we want financially successful events, but because we want to help as many families as we can purchase their children’s clothing, toys and gear at a fraction of what it would cost new.

We are currently looking for potential franchisees in the following areas. If you are interested in a territory not listed, please contact us to discuss whether it might be available. Please note Just Between Friends is currently sold out in the following locations: Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex, Kansas City, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Sacramento, and Seattle.

Just Between Friends franchise

After launching 150+ franchises in 30 states in the U.S., we’ve developed a rigorous metric for developing territories to ensure that our franchisees are successful. This is how we do it:

Our territories are typically comprised of areas that have a minimum population of 100,000, with positive annual growth, a large number of households with children under age ten and an appropriate and representative mix of the population’s ethnicity. In addition to our population requirements, we also look at other information such as the average household income to ensure that a new Just Between Friends franchise is being placed in areas where our owners are likely to be successful.

Because the success of every Just Between Friends franchise location is dependent on our owners being involved and engaged members of their community, we require that at least one owner (if the ownership of the franchise is split between two parties) live within 30 miles of the territory in which the event will be held. If the owner is a multi-unit operator, the mileage is increased.

For Shannon Carter, a multi-unit franchise owner in northern California who also helps our corporate staff with information technology project management, the thrill of helping her community inspired her to take on more territories.

“I’m a mother of six kids; seeing the sale in my area was a big deal to me,” Shannon says. “I started with just one event, and we had so much fun in running our first sale that within six months we bought another one. I didn’t know what to expect when I went into this business, but I knew that I was helping so many people, in addition to myself. As an owner, I get to shop first, and having six kids to shop for, it’s like paradise to have everything I could ever want for my family right there — for pennies on the dollar. My husband was initially cautious about investing the money into this business, but after the first event he was sold. It’s so worth it as to what we’re doing to help people.”

We will hold your hand through the entire process of planning your first sale

Once the papers are signed, and you are no longer just dreaming about presiding over your own pop-up consignment sale, the reality of putting on a three-day plus sale will present itself. Don’t worry. We will help you through the entire process of staging your first event.

We are very pleased to share that Shawna Wilfert, a top achieving franchise owner herself, has joined the JBF staff and will meet on a weekly or bi-monthly basis with new owners through their first year of ownership.  We have found that these one-on-one meetings provide the perfect avenue for new franchisees to be in business for themselves, but not BY themselves.  Shawna’s caring spirit and “can do” attitude are the perfect combination for mentoring and coaching new franchise owners to see significant success right out of the gate.

“JBF provides both a fun and rewarding franchise ownership opportunity,” says Lori Lalli, Franchise Recruiter for Just Between Friends. “Our initial training, combined with our ongoing support is second to none when compared to others. Our corporate training is conducted by top-achieving Just Between Friends franchise owners who are out there doing what you’ll be doing every day.”
