There are loads of opportunities out there when it comes to owning a retail clothing franchise, and it’s important to do your research to ensure that you have all the information necessary to make the right decision. The best franchises are those that give you a unique advantage in the industry, and allow you to work with a proven business model. Especially for those who have always loved the fashion industry – and consider themselves fashion experts – owning an Apricot Lane retail clothing franchise is the ideal career move.
Passion for the Retail Clothing Franchise Business
It should come as no surprise that we expect our franchisees to display a keen passion for the fashion industry. That doesn’t mean you have to know everything, but you should have a keen eye for style and an enthusiasm for keeping track of the latest fashion trends, especially as it relates to how they might be displayed in your store. One of our chief goals is empowering women to look their best, and feel beautiful when they leave one of our locations. This should be a mission that excites you too, and it should be a motivating force behind the day-to-day operation of your retail clothing franchise.
Take Charge of Your Career
Whether you’ve worked in the fashion industry before at the corporate or retail level, or any other industry, you’ve probably experienced the desire to be your own boss and conduct business according to your own vision. Regardless of your specific background, we welcome those with an entrepreneurial spirit and a desire to learn the ins and outs of an exciting industry. With an Apricot Lane retail clothing franchise, you will have more control over your inventory, and the freedom to create unique displays that speak to your personal sense of style.
Eagerness to Learn
As a player in the fast fashion industry, you’ll be expected to stay on top of the latest trends, and always keep an eye out for new styles you’d like to feature.

You might have a love of fashion, and be eager to call the fashion industry home, but you still might be wondering: how profitable is this market? Am I setting myself up for success? Luckily, the clothing industry is both strong and consistent, with women’s apparel sales generating $116.4 billion in 2013.[Newer stats?] Apricot Lane also is placed uniquely in the niche of fast fashion, which is growing at a rapid pace. Fast fashion has grown 21% over the past three years, and that trend is only projected to grow more promising in the future.
