Today, the fashion industry is a highly competitive market that affords the entrepreneurial-minded person many opportunities to do business. If you’re one of those people who is thinking about opening a clothing franchise, you should know that not all of them are created equal. At Apricot Lane, we’ve taken over 26 years of experience to create a business model that focuses on high-quality, on-trend fashions and accessories offered at affordable price points. We’re a leader in the fast-fashion industry — one defined by a quick turnaround time from runway to store, limited production, and affordability — which puts the Apricot Lane franchisee at a distinct advantage over the competition!
No Time to Wait
Today’s fashion-conscious woman is increasingly busy, and she doesn’t want to have to wait to find her favorite runway look on the racks of her favorite clothing store. At Apricot Lane, she doesn’t have to! We work with leaders in the fashion industry, allowing us access to the hottest runway looks and get them quickly into our stores. As an Apricot Lane clothing franchisee, you’ll be able to choose from hundreds of trendsetting, sophisticated, and timeless lines that appeal to all ages, allowing you to curate your inventory often and while styles are still trending — an advantage your customers will love!
One of the most important distinguishing features of the Apricot Lane brand is our boutique philosophy. Because each of our over 75 franchise locations is independently owned and operated, each one is a true reflection of its community. No two stores are alike! That means your customers won’t feel like they’re shopping a chain store; they’ll be supporting a boutique business, one that carries limited quantities and selections, as part of an ever-changing inventory that’s always fresh and always fashionable.
Walking into an Apricot Lane Boutique store is not like walking into a mass-market retailer — and your customers will realize that right away! They’ll love the beautiful displays of clothing and accessories, the racks of colors, textures, and patterns, and the friendly, knowledgeable sales associates who are there to help and who have what we like to call a “passion for fashion.” We pride ourselves in giving each customer the individualized attention she deserves, without making her feel pressured or rushed. She’s there to shop, to decompress, to spend time doing something she loves, and we get that! Understanding the needs and wants of our customers is what makes us unique to the clothing franchise industry, and what allows us to thrive in a highly competitive market
