SALT LAKE CITY, UT— October 24, 2016— The Kid to Kid Franchise Advisory Board has awarded its September Store of the Month honors to Kid to Kid of Salt Lake City, managed by a team led by local resident Brighton Sloan. The Salt Lake store was selected from more than 100 Kid to Kid stores across the United States, Canada and Portugal.
One of eleven Kid to Kid stores in Utah, the Salt Lake store has experienced significant growth– with sales up 32% in September. The reason? “It’s the management,” states the store’s corporate support representative, Tina Zaharias. “When Brighton Sloan took over store management a year ago, there were many changes that needed to be made in day to day operations. She diligently follows the systems designed by the franchise to help stores be successful, and it’s paying off.” Zaharias also mentioned that Ms. Sloan significantly increased the amount of product purchased from local parents, providing more selection for shoppers. “She emphasizes the customer experience, merchandising, social media posts, and strategies for getting inventory in the door, on the floor and out of the store.”
In addition to focusing on their own store’s success, Sloan and her team have demonstrated their commitment to helping the franchise by assisting in training the newest franchisees. The store serves as a franchise flagship store and new franchisee training center, where new owners come to learn the ins and outs of running their own store.
Sloan and her team look forward to continuing to impact the community and new franchisees for years to come. They buy and sell gently used kid’s items year round – offering cash or 20% more in-store credit. Their store is located at 675 East 2100 South in Salt Lake City.
