Franchising with Style Encore® is an incredible opportunity and we want you to have every chance to succeed in your new business. This article explains a few things about franchising with the brand. As you explore the opportunity, you will learn quite a lot about Style Encore® but please contact us for assistance at any time if you have questions.
#1: What Is Style Encore®?
Style Encore® is a hot new retail franchise for fashion conscious, spending savvy women. Our model provides our customer the opportunity to both buy and sell clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories. As a franchisee, you will be buying gently used items from individuals and then reselling them to customers. Style Encore is part of a booming, $17 billion industry that is consistently growing.
#2: How Do I Franchise?
Our goal is to ensure this business is a good fit so there are a number of steps we’ll both take before committing to the franchise. Once you’ve been financially approved you’ll conduct your due diligence on the brand by visiting with a number of franchisees, touring stores and attending Discovery Day. Once we’ve mutually decided to move forward, franchise agreements will be signed and the process towards opening your store will begin.
#3: How Do You Choose a Location?
With nearly 1,200 locations we have extensive experience with real estate and will assist you with site selection. Real estate is covered on your first day of training to ensure the expectations on sites are defined and we have an idea on what may be available in your market. You will have access to both national and local real estate brokers who will work with you through the process.
#4: How Do You Learn the Operations of the Store?
One of the benefits to franchising is having access and full use of the business model. Most of our franchisees do not come from retail so you’ll be fully trained in all aspects of the business including advertising, merchandising, inventory management, staff management and more. We will help you learn the tips and tricks that make the store easier to manage and you’ll receive training on an ongoing basis through home office classes, online modules, regional meetings and national conferences.
