LEXINGTON, KY—July 31, 2015—The Kid to Kid Franchise proudly awarded its Store of the Month award for June to the owners of Kid to Kid in Lexington, Kentucky, Jason and Molly Newland. The Lexington Kid to Kid store was selected from more than 100 franchisees across the U.S. and Portugal for their 32 percent increase in sales and continued effort to improve their store through offering more in-demand products and providing great customer service.
The Store of the Month award for Lexington was based upon recommendations from the Franchise Advisory Board. According to Ele Morgan, board member and fellow franchisee of the Kid to Kid in American Fork, UT, “Jason and Molly are great about the “better together” concept and are quick to share ideas with other franchisees about promotions or products that have been successful for them. They grasp the concept of the ever flexing store and are constantly participating in new product ideas to stay fresh in their community.”
As many parents begin to shop for back-to-school, the Newlands and their staff keep their store fully-stocked with hundreds, sometimes thousands, of items every day. “You could shop at our store every day and find something new at affordable prices,” said Molly. “We see families who come into our store and get so excited to find complete wardrobes for their little ones without spending a fortune.”
Before owning Kid to Kid, the Newlands wanted to run a business of their own for some time. When the Lexington Kid to Kid store became available, the Newlands seized the opportunity. “When we first found out that the Kid to Kid store in our area was for sale, we saw that it had a lot of potential for growth,” said Molly. “After finding out about the support the franchise offers, it felt like it was the right move for us and our family.”
The Newlands give credit for their success to their dedicated, hard-working staff. “The number one key to our success is our hard-working team members who provide excellent customer service,” said Molly, “And our manager, Mitzie Arnold, is great at keeping everyone motivated and on task.”
When the Newlands aren’t busy making sure their store is in top shape, they enjoy traveling, camping, golfing and spending time with their three daughters, ages five, eight, and ten.
