Experience in the Clothing Franchise Industry but Not with Business? How Apricot Lane Can Help

You have an eye for fashion. You know what looks good and who it looks good on. Maybe you’ve spent time as a clerk or manager at a local consignment shop and are now ready to take the big step of running your own business. We get it. It can be nerve-wracking putting everything in place to open your own business.

However, opening a clothing franchise with Apricot Lane Boutique can take a lot of the stress out of the start-up process. You will have the benefit of having the backing of an incredible, and talented, leadership team that has decades of combined experience both in the fashion and franchising fields and are adept at helping you through the franchising process regardless of the amount of experience you have in the fashion industry.

But Seriously, I Need Experience, Right?

No. Having experience in the fashion or specialty retail industry is certainly a plus but is by no means a requirement to becoming an Apricot Lane Boutique franchisee. An ideal candidate is someone that has an eye for fashion, and, just as important, a deft ability to work with the people around them. A great candidate has strong organizational skills and is enthusiastic about working in their own clothing franchise.

If you’re the type of person who enjoys fashion as a passion project or a hobby, then you’re qualified to own and run an Apricot Lane boutique clothing franchise. Turn that interest into a career with Apricot Lane and its tried and true franchising method that has succeeded in dozens of places across the country.

OK, Well What If I Have Experience?

While experience in the fashion or specialty retail field isn’t required, knowing how the business works can only help you and your clothing franchise. The women’s apparel industry is gigantic and growing at a constant rate. Knowing the ins and outs of the business can aid your clothing franchise in getting ahead in the crowded marketplace.

If you’ve worked at an independent clothing boutique or shop, you know how hard it can be to build a client base and stand out from the field. The difference of running your own Apricot Lane clothing franchise is that you will rest easy knowing that you have the backing of a decades-old and trusted brand as well as a franchise model that is proven to succeed.

What About Clothing Franchise Training?

Apricot Lane Boutique takes its staff training seriously. The beautiful thing about our training program is that it has no end. We will be there for you from the moment you send your first email to the day you open your store and for all the years you are running your clothing franchise.

The training, of course, changes all the time but it never ends. Trends change. There’s always something new to learn. There are always new styles out there to get on the racks of your clothing franchise, and the Apricot Lane training team will be there for you every step of the way.
