Learn About Kid to Kid Franchises
A Growing Market.
Every year, the average child in America outgrows nearly $1,000 worth of
clothes, toys, and equipment. Although many of these items are still in good
condition, parents must replace them with expensive new ones. With more than 40
million children under the age of 13 in the nation today, the need for quality
children's products at affordable prices is steadily growing.
The Upscale Approach.
Today's consumers want a bargain. But many parents would feel uncomfortable
shopping for their children in a second-hand store, even if prices were low. Kid
to Kid is successful because it creates an environment and offers a selection
that appeals to customers who otherwise would not shop in a thrift store.
From our little pink door that greets kids as they arrive, to the look and feel
of our marketing materials and displays, customers sense that we are different.
And the difference translates into a better business model. Accordingly, Kid to
Kid was ranked #1 in its category by the Franchise 500 for 2005.
Kid to Kid store owners are also different from most franchisees. Their success
is a natural result of meeting customers' needs. They understand that
participating in the Kid to Kid buying and selling process is a win-win-win
situation. Families win when they receive cash for recycling their used
children's products. Parents win as they purchase quality used products at a
fraction of retail price. And store owners win as they reap the personal and
financial rewards which come from dedication and hard work.
