Why Franchising?

Building Success with Our Plato's Closet® Brand

For over 30 years, Winmark Corporation has led the field in the retail-resale industry, pioneering what is now known as the "ultra-high-value" approach to franchising. Over this time, we've developed a vibrant stable of retail brands—including Plato’s Closet—and have continued to build success with dedicated franchisees who are passionate about their stores.

Why Winmark® Leads the Way

Winmark is certainly not the only resale franchisor out there, but we've continued to distinguish ourselves over the years and have established ourselves as the largest, most successful and most respected retail-resale franchisor in North America. Much of this has to do with how we develop our franchisees and our vigilant commitment to making their stores as successful as possible.

As a Winmark franchisee, you can expect:

  • A 100% franchised system that serves franchisee success—not corporate stores
  • An extensive training program to prepare you for the business ownership
  • Our willingness to work with first-time franchisees and family teams
  • Ongoing operations and marketing support from our dedicated franchise team
  • A critical and enticing niche inside the retail marketplace
  • Powerful POS system and online cloud platform to assist you with pricing and reporting
  • Rock solid relationships with our third-party vendors
  • A robust corporate infrastructure that is ready to support the needs of our franchisees

Does this sound like the kind of franchisor/franchisee relationship you know you could help make a success in your community? If so, then our Winmark franchise team invites you to contact us.
