Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
Monkee’s Franchising, LLC announces the opening of two more franchise locations this month, in Louisville, Kentucky and Mountain Brook, Alabama. There are now 23 independently owned and operated Monkee’s boutiques in the United States, with additional franchise locations planned for 2014.
Vice President of Sales and Operations, Andrea Rice, credits the companies success in a subdued economy on controlled expansion, support for the development of current stores and their high quality of personalized customer service.
“Our selection process has allowed us to strategically grow our business and provide excellent start-up and ongoing support to help all our franchisees reach their business goals. We select owners that are not only passionate about fashion, but desire to be a small business owner and value being part of the Monkee’s franchise system. Our assistance includes a comprehensive training program, in-house marketing services and buying consultation services, plus so much more,” said Andrea Rice.
Founder Deidre Shaw and co-owner of Monkee’s Franchising, LLC, Brenda Maready continue to operate their own individual stores, in addition to supporting their franchisees. Keeping up to date on new designers, style trends and experiences in their stores gives them a unique ability to support their franchisees.
“Monkee’s has been a passion of mine for over 15 years and I love working alongside business owners that share my vision for our brand. We all learn from each other and our experiences,” said Brenda Maready.
Each franchisee determines the exact mixture of merchandise in their store, influenced by their local customer. Maready believes the success of the business has been in listening to customers, and adapting to their needs.
“All of our store owners strive to give each customer a personalized shopping experience, and we listen to their feedback,” said Maready.
