Just Between Friends franchise owners talk about what they love about the business
Just Between Friends franchise, the biggest pop-up consignment sale business in North America, is known far and wide for the life-changing amount of savings that our sales pass on to families with young children. Our God-led franchise dramatically changes the lives of its franchisees and its customers.
With an affordable initial investment and a minimum of two sales per year, Just Between Friends can be either a supplemental income or a full-time career. The ongoing costs are also low. Renting a venue large enough to serve their communities’ populations of families with young children is their largest expense, and marketing is the next largest expense.
Our owners are our best asset. They are ambassadors not only for our brand but for families in their communities. In fact, JBF franchisees’ satisfaction ratings have ranked Just Between Friends one of the Franchise Business Review’s (FBR) Top 200 franchise systems for high franchise owner validation for ten consecutive years. FBR is a much-respected ranking of franchise systems that measures how satisfied actual franchise owners are, and consistent ranking is difficult to achieve.
“To be among the top 200 franchises on the Franchise Business Review’s FBR50 list is an incredible honor,” said Shannon Wilburn, co-founder and CEO of JBF. “Because franchisee satisfaction determines this award, it’s especially significant to us. We value our franchisees and work hard to have a franchisee-centric company. We are grateful that our franchise owners are pleased to be a part of JBF.”
More than 28,000 franchise owners participated in Franchise Business Review’s research. JBF’s franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training and support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.
