Just Between Friends offers a unique opportunity to start your own consignment business from the ground up right here in New Orleans.
Turn your bargain shopping habit into a business with Just Between Friends Franchise. The Today Show calls it “the hottest ticket in town,” and they want to come to New Orleans!
Do you have a passion for great deals? Like a “never-ever-ever-pay-full-price, up-at-2am-fighting-for-that-black-Friday-steal, ‘Extreme Couponing’” kind of passion? Here is a chance to turn that passion into profit with Just Between Friends – also known as JBF. Just Between Friends Franchise System is North America’s leading children’s and maternity consignment event, and moms (and dads) across the country flock to these sales twice a year. In fact, JBF helps more than half a million families save and earn money every single year.
JBF has 138 Franchises in 28 states and Canada, but alas, there are none in New Orleans, so they are looking for a mom – or several moms – to be the first to bring this super-successful event to New Orleans.
We have been checking out JBF and talked with some of the moms behind the sale. Here’s how it works:
- Local moms/families run the consignment event twice a year – spring and fall (a few ambitious owners may add in a holiday sale or summer event)
- Families in your community sign up as consignors and sell the new and gently-used items their children have outgrown (or never used)
- Consignors earn 60 to 70 percent
- Other families shop the sales event and generally save more than 50 to 90% off of retail prices
These events not only help families throughout New Orleans; they also provide an incredible business opportunity to moms. JBF is a great opportunity for any “mompreneur” like you who is interested in owning a business that will help you earn extra money without taking you away from your family for long hours every week. Because it is part of a franchise, you will have all of the tools at your fingertips and a great support system to help you build this business that you can run part-time! So that means you still have the flexibility to put your family first. And did we mention you would be helping other families save money?
Mompreneurs are the foundation of JBF’s success. The moms, dads and even grandparents who run JBF sales are family-focused and involved in their communities. They help bring those families and communities together to earn and save money.
