Welcome to Franchise Friday, a weekly showcase of unique franchise system. It’s not always about what’s “hot” in franchising but more so about what’s unique. We want to help bring light to franchise systems who set themselves apart and provide interesting opportunities for those who are considering buying a franchise.
To kick off our series, we’re starting with Traveling Chic Boutique, a women’s clothing franchise system. Traveling Chic Boutique started in 2009 in Orlando, Florida, as a trunk show which eventually blossomed into a brick-and-mortar retail location in Southern Pines, North Carolina, two years later. They pride themselves on a perpetually rotating inventory to be sure that their products remain fresh and trendy. Additionally, their 1964 airstream trailer has become an iconic part of their business and adds to the ambiance of the shopping experience they offer. They currently have nine boutique locations across the United States. What makes this system unique is their diverse franchise options they offer to potential franchisees: you can opt to own a trunk show only, retail store only, or a combination of both. Furthermore, their quick buildout timeframes could be ideal to those looking to get into the business fast – a one-month buildout for trunk shows and a three-month buildout for retail locations pending the approval of store location.
We hope you enjoyed learning about this unique franchising opportunity! If you would like to learn more about their system, head over to http://www.travelingchicboutique.com/franchise. And, of course, before you buy a franchise, make sure it is a great fit for you, it is a wise investment, and you have vetted the system through an experienced franchise professional.
