JockSale which operates consignment events for buying and selling of sporting, outdoor, tools, and hobby gear is offering franchise territories for the first time. “The company has been in development for several years and has been holding local JockSale events for the last year in Chattanooga and North Georgia area and we are now ready to take the brand national," says Lisa Brown, Head of The Jock Support team. “We have a hot brand and with major brand expansion in our sights; our mission is simple, have fun and make money while doing so,” states Brown.
The concept was the brainchild of a group of sports enthusiasts, as their homes started filling up with gear they no longer needed. We started thinking of a way to sell their gear, and did not like the idea of using the internet, preparing shipments, negotiating with buyers, pawn shops, or other traditional methods of selling gear. So the idea of bringing it all under one roof for a short window of time, 7 to 10 days 2 -4 times a year, creating a fun event where the community of buyers could sell-shop-touch-feel the gear, got us very excited. We suspect every home in America has this type of stuff not being used. From exercise equipment, golf, sports, camping, fishing, bikes, tools, ATV’s., the list goes on and on! Did you know a jock is an enthusiast of any kind? This opens the doors to so many different categories and items to sell or buy at a JockSale event.
“As the Event began to grow, so many new avenues opened for our business, we had locally owned retailers using us as a way to clearance their old stock, and local Banks selling their repossessed gear. We also started JockDrive as a super easy fundraiser for non-profit groups. These groups simply collect unused gear from their members and sold it at a JockSale event earning up to 75% of the sales. We even started providing a JockSale VIP pick-up service to local neighborhoods,” states Brown.
The goal is to have JockSale Events in every community in America within the next 10 years. We have developed operating systems and a manual that helps new owners run the business efficiently. The franchise can be started as a part-time, home-based business for about $25,000 where the new owner can keep their main source of income. JockSale owners do not have to purchase inventory (provided by consignors), no long-term leases (we just rent space for 7-10 days) and need no employees (only volunteers). JockSale avoids all the traditional pitfalls of new businesses which cause them to fail.
The ability to recycle gear, help buyers and sellers is a win-win situation. "You can tell by our logo, titles (Jock Support), and even concept, we are all about having FUN while earning dollars," states Brown.
