You provide the merchandise. We take care of the rest

The Franklin Shops offer the solution to significantly decrease the overhead costs of operating a retail business. For prospective shop owners, our concept is even more attractive when the high initial costs are a deterrent.

The Franklin business model is the answer for businesses that are start-ups, expanding, or downsizing. It allows boutique-level businesses to survive and once again compete in the retail arena.

By joining together, the start-up costs and the day-to-day operating costs are part of the investment, which The Franklin Shops provides. These costs include sales staff, utilities, building and equipment, sales tax, advertising, promotion, events, repairs and janitorial services, computers, software,
security ... and much more.

In other words: You provide the merchandise and we take care of the rest. At The Franklin Shops we are particular in the selection of retailers to ensure quality and unique products. We offer a full array of upscale merchandise to our customers, which brings them back time and time again.

Our concept features the possibility to customize shop size and location within the store. You can personalize your shop space to reflect your shop's identity – and your vision.
