Plato's Closet® Franchise Opportunities

Lead the Teen Resale Space in Your Community!

For most teens, what's new and hot and trendy always commands the most attention. From social media, to music and entertainment, and, of course, fashion. At Winmark®, we've developed the Plato's Closet brand to meet these demands and offer teens and twenty-somethings high-quality, gently used apparel that is stylish, affordable, and very "now."

With more than 475 North American locations—and more opening every month—our Plato's Closet brand continues to provide marketplace success for franchisees passionate about delivering the latest trends and styles to the ever-changing fashion needs of young men and women. If you're interested in owning and operating your own dynamic, fast-paced teen retail-resale store, then our team at Winmark is ready to hear from you.

In 2018, our average Plato’s Closet location had sales of $1,037,564, and our top 25% of these stores (110 locations) had average gross sales of $1,548,876.* Entrepreneur Magazine agrees and has ranked Plato's Closet #1 in its category in the publication's Franchise 500—a list that the brand has been included on for over a decade!

Contact our team at (866) 668-0681 for more information about bringing a Plato's Closet location to your community!

*The Average Store numbers are the 2018 Average Gross Sales and Average Gross Profit amounts stated in Item 19 of the 2019 Plato’s Closet® Franchise Disclosure Document (as reported by the 443 stores that had been in operation at least one year as of December 29, 2018). Of the 443 reporting stores, 189 or 43% of the stores attained or exceeded the Average Gross Sales and 191 or 43% of the stores attained or exceeded the Average Gross Profit. The Top Quartile Average Gross Sales and Average Gross Profit only relates to 110 of the reporting Plato’s Closet® Stores who ranked in the top 25% of the gross sales range. Of the 110 reporting stores in the top quartile, 46 or 42% of the stores attained or exceeded the top quartile Average Gross Sales and 49 or 45% of the stores attained or exceeded the top quartile Average Gross Profit. A new franchisee’s results will likely differ from these results.

Bring Plato's Closet to Your Community

Tap into the Pulse of Today's Fashion

You don't have to be an industry expert to know that young people spend a lot on clothes, but you may not be aware of just how big this market is. This demographic spends about $50 billion a year on clothing and accessories—and another $170 billion is spent by others (like parents, etc.) on them. The Plato's Closet brand was designed to fill a niche in this marketplace where our stores are both buying the latest fashions and styles from customers and selling them back to our clientele at discounts at up to 70% off regular retail pricing.
