http://fortworth.jbfsale.com - About Just Between Friends
In 1997, Just Between Friends was created in a living room in Tulsa, Oklahoma when Shannon Wilburn, a mother of two young children, and Daven Tackett hosted a sale, while inviting 17 friends to be consigners. Promoted only in their neighborhood, the gross sales reached approximately $2,000. That’s when the idea caught on. Each season, a new, larger event was held. In 2003, Wilburn and Tackett formed Just Between Friends Franchise Systems, Inc., and began developing and selling franchises. Currently Wilburn, now sole owner and CEO of Just Between Friends Franchise Systems, Inc., has 124 franchises in 24 states. JBF has received national attention on numerous television shows including ABC News, The Early Show, Good Morning America, CNN, Headline News, The Huffington Post, Inside Edition and CNBC’s The Big Idea.
