LAS VEGAS, NV—May 15, 2015—Kid to Kid Franchise proudly awarded its Store of the Month award for April to the owner of Kid to Kid in Las Vegas, Fumiko MacPherson and her daughter, Naomi MacPherson. The Las Vegas Kid to Kid store was selected from more than 100 franchisees across the U.S. and Portugal for their outstanding 85 percent increase in sales during their first month in their new 4,000 square foot space.
“Fumiko is like the little engine that could,” said Shauna Sloan, president and founder of Kid to Kid. “She has been plugging away for ten years in a small, 2,600 sq. ft space, posting impressive sales and profits despite repeated challenges and setbacks that stemmed from how hard Las Vegas was hit by the recession. In April, she was finally able to move into a larger store. Fumiko and her all-female staff moved the entire store by themselves. This move was a classic demonstration of the power and strength of women!”
Originally from Northern California, Fumiko and her husband were looking for an opportunity to own a business they could call their own. They discovered the Kid to Kid franchise and learned about a store in Las Vegas that was available for sale.
“As soon as I found out about Kid to Kid, I was hooked,” said Fumiko. “I love the idea of recycling and getting paid for items you no longer need. Plus, it’s fun working with all the cute kids clothing and items. As an owner for ten years, I’ve gotten to know many of my customers and have enjoyed watching their kids grow. I’m so happy to be making an impact in so many people’s lives by helping them save and earn money.”
Fumiko’s daughter, Naomi, was basically raised at Kid to Kid and is now a buyer and store manager. “I love that there is a ton of training available to all Kid to Kid owners and staff,” said Naomi. “The franchise truly cares about their franchisees and offering them all the tools necessary for them and their business to grow.”
Fumiko gives credit to her hard working staff and her daughter for making her store a success. “I am so honored that we won the Store of the Month award!” said Fumiko. “I’d like to thank all of my loyal customers for continued support, even during difficult times. Without them and my dedicated employees, the store wouldn’t be where it is today. Also, my daughter has been a true inspiration by taking on so much at such an early age.”
