There are over 13,000 customers in our teen/young adult demographic within 7 miles of the store. Expanding social media advertising through Instagram, Facebook and other mediums will help reach more of this core customer base.

A franchisee with a local presence will have an immediate impact on sales as they will be better suited to network within the community through local events, school promotions and more. They can also continually train the staff which will improve sales. The additional resources a new owner would have will allow implementation of a more focused, expanded marketing campaign. This will provide the opportunity to buy more product from the customers to increased store inventory which ultimately will drive more sales.
