Finding the right storefront for your new Kid to Kid franchise is a crucial step. That’s why we are here to help you select the perfect site to grow and develop your store. Our experts know what attributes make for the best site and our leasing experts negotiate a favorable lease agreement.
The Kid to Kid team assists you in preparing a business plan so that solid groundwork is laid to help your business thrive in the future. This includes ensuring you get the financing your store needs, the training your staff wants, and the store design you’ve dreamed of.
While we don’t directly finance your store, we help you create a plan to obtain SBA guaranteed financing or another financing option. With our great connections and partnerships with major banks, we make sure you are well-equipped to get the financing you need.
We help you with the design and construction process to ensure your store builds on the Kid to Kid name and reputation. Our store design specialist will create a customized store and fixture plan to fit your space and assist you in ordering approved materials for your contractors during the build out process.
We know how challenging it can be to jump into a new business, which is why we set you up to succeed with our extensive training program and ongoing support. This includes a two-part training program in Salt Lake City and a five-day internship in a Kid to Kid store, as well as yearly conferences and site calls.
You will begin to build up a well-curated inventory five weeks before opening day in an “Open to Buy” period. Using our proprietary technology to properly evaluate and price inventory items, you will begin to market to new customers and build a following as you obtain stock.
Once your store is filled with quality inventory, all the preparations have been put in place, and you have the resources to begin the marketing process, you will select a Grand Opening date. Your support rep will visit the store to assist you during this process!
