Take vintage-chic clothing, personalized service that makes customers feel like they’re shopping in their best friend’s closet, and a lack of contenders in a $25 billion clothing boutique industry, and you have cut the cloth for a very successful business.
Scout & Molly’s has become all the rage in the franchise industry, with 25 licenses currently under development across the U.S. and boutiques opening soon in Philadelphia, New York City, Washington DC, Charleston, Houston and more. The franchise’s latest addition opened in Winter Park, Florida, in May, boasting an address in the high-profile Park Avenue shopping district.
Franchising With Style
Scout & Molly’s franchise model offers the flexibility and support that appeals to those looking to supplement their income – or just work less! In addition to being an owner/operator, franchisees can be a semi-absentee owner, enabling them to be less involved in the day-to-day operations of the business. Scout & Molly’s professional buyers take the guesswork out of selecting merchandise and give owners easy access through the franchise’s own division on JOOR, the premiere global wholesale marketplace. Monthly budgets are set with the help of inventory analysts. And don’t be surprised to see Lisa Kornstein, founder and now CCO, show up at a Grand Opening. She’s as passionate as ever about helping women find their inner glow through fashion – now by growing one of the most successful clothing boutique franchises.
Down To Earth Trendsetting
It may sound like an oxymoron, but it describes both the experience at a Scout & Molly’s boutique and their business model. Both have offerings that are exciting, yet comfortable; best-in-class, yet unpretentious; innovative yet pragmatic. And like so many great brands, at the root of it all is its founder.
