One of the primary objectives of many franchisees is having the freedom to run their business in a way that suits their lifestyle. For many, that means involving family members, whether it’s a husband-wife or parent-child team. Running a fashion clothing boutique with a loved one can make the whole process more fun and manageable, especially when it comes to working through obstacles, brainstorming displays, and schedule flexibility. It’s no surprise that having a family business partner is an attractive prospect. Well, the good news is—it’s entirely possible to run a successful family-owned fashion clothing boutique franchise, and Apricot Lane makes it easy.
Personal Touch – Make it a Family Affair
One of the key benefits of franchising is having the freedom to determine your own business style. While a franchisor may give you a road map to follow, and a set of guidelines to keep you on the right path toward profitability, the character of your business is up to you. Apricot Lane prides itself on a boutique philosophy. We want customers to feel a personal connection to each location they visit, so we encourage them to personalize their stores as much as possible.
This philosophy fits perfectly with prospective franchisees looking to start a family-style business. Since you have a voice in the appearance of displays, store layout, and prioritization of styles, there is limitless opportunity for collaboration. This freedom is also perfect for franchisee duos with hectic schedules, who crave flexibility in their next career move.
Entering the franchise space can be scary, especially if you’ve never done it before. Having a family member by your side can help immensely, but that won’t always erase the question marks.
If you and your partner are interested in entering the fashion clothing boutique industry, but nervous because you’ve never owned a franchise before or have limited industry experience—don’t worry. We understand that franchisees are all cut from different cloths. That’s why we have an extensive network of support in place. Whether it’s our location scouting services, step-by-step pre-opening procedure, store design options, bookkeeping assistance, or comprehensive training (including a trip to the Los Angeles Fashion District), we make sure our franchisees are prepared.
Solid Fashion Clothing Boutique Investment
If you’re like many franchisees, you’re interested in opening a fashion clothing boutique because the industry is booming, and you’re looking to improve your family’s quality of life. However, there are always costs involved with starting a new franchise, and those costs can be off-putting if you don’t know what you’re getting in return. A good franchisor puts your investment to work immediately, so you don’t have to wait to see the benefits.
Even if you have a husband, wife, son or daughter as a business partner, without the proper support it can still be easy to feel like you’re going it alone. We give you immediate access to our location scouting services, a 24/7 support network, a list of buyers, training, and marketing dollars. When you invest in a fashion clothing boutique franchise, you and your family should always feel like that investment is well-placed, and yielding quick returns.
