Meet the Team at Kid to Kid

Shauna Sloan, Founder Kid to Kid

Shauna Sloan is one of the world’s leading resale experts and founder of the Kid to Kid franchise. As a mother of six, and now a grandmother of three, she understands how to match and meet the needs of both parents and franchisees, and has owned and operated as many as five Kid to Kid stores at a time. She works closely with the training and support team and frequently provides webinars to the system on best practices. She has been recognized as the NAWBO Business Woman of the Year in Utah and received Best of State awards for Kid to Kid.

Scott Sloan, CEO

My name is Scott Sloan, and I work alongside a talented team here at BaseCamp Franchising dedicated to helping people like you realize personal and financial freedom as we work together to build our two resale clothing brands, Kid to Kid and Uptown Cheapskate.

In 1992 my parents Brent and Shauna Sloan did just that when they packed up the family and moved to Utah to open the first Kid to Kid store. I played my small part early on: running flyers door to door, helping moms carry loads out to the car, and helping manage the facility (a fancy way of saying cleaning bathrooms, vacuuming, and changing light bulbs). That first Kid to Kid store has since grown into a multinational brand with more than 115 stores in three countries. I saw first-hand the good and the bad that comes with business ownership through those first years, but those experiences seeded a desire to own my own business.

My role at BaseCamp has evolved over the years as I worked my way out of facilities maintenance and into administrative and marketing positions. In 2008 I realized my goal when I co-founded Uptown Cheapskate with my sister Chelsea Sloan Carroll. Uptown set out to disrupt the resale industry by offering an upscale, hip environment for young adults to buy and sell fashion that didn’t feel like your typical mom & pop thrift store. In order to stay close to that vision for the brand, Chelsea and I still own and operate several Uptown locations together.

BaseCamp exists to help people like you work through that uncertainty by providing a proven franchise system that has been creating success stories for almost 25 years. I look forward to writing our story together.
