When you pursue a clothing store franchise, you don’t have to be a business expert or have a long resume of fashion industry experience. The Apricot Lane franchise model is designed to empower franchisees to put their passion for the newest, trendiest styles to use. We believe that when you run a business, you should truly love that business and have a genuine enthusiasm for the industry. It’s okay if you’ve never owned a franchise before, but you should have a strong sense for current styles and understand the importance of staying abreast of industry developments.
A Passion for Style
If you live for fashion, you know how important it is to stay up to date on fast fashion trends. Our commitment to staying ahead of the curve makes us unique compared to the larger and luxury retailers. One of the best parts of running a clothing store franchise is that you’re in charge of customizing your displays, so you can really individualize your store to align with your personality and vision. We want you to love the work you do, so we give you the agency to inject your unique passion for fashion into your franchise.
Turn Your LOVE into Your Career
Who doesn’t want to go into work and do something they truly enjoy? When you open an Apricot Lane clothing store franchise, you’ll be running a business and having fun doing it. Even with limited prior business experience, you should have a driving interest in learning more about our thriving industry, the fashion world, and staying current on the hottest new trends. Most importantly, you should have a strong entrepreneurial spirit, and a determination to work through any obstacles you may encounter during the process.
Support & Training for Your Clothing Store Franchise
It’s important to remember that you won’t be in it alone. Our clothing store franchise is a turnkey opportunity with a proven business model, built-in brand awareness, and an infrastructure of training and support that will really ease the transition from other industries and careers. We know that the process can be daunting for first-time franchisees, so we’ve implemented a sophisticated support system. Apricot Lane has an extensive training program in place to ensure that our franchisees are ready to open their doors on Day 1. In addition to our 40 hours of virtual home training, we also offer classroom training at our headquarters in the Sacramento Valley, covering store management, customer service, marketing and inventory management, and a field trip to the LA fashion district.
