ARVADA, CO—August 20, 2015— Kid to Kid Arvada, Colorado has been awarded Store of the Month in July by the Kid to Kid Franchise System. The franchise offered its congratulations to owners Todd and Miriam Frick and their team in Arvada on their second award as the store was previously awarded Store of the Month in October of 2013. The Fricks attribute their success to their well-trained and hard-working staff that took on extra responsibility as the Fricks spent a large portion of their time getting their third business, Uptown Cheapskate Centennial, up and running.
Todd and Miriam gave special recognition to their manager, Amanda Funnell. According to Miriam, “Amanda is truly an amazing leader. She fosters such a great work atmosphere that the staff is happy and clearly having fun while they work.” Amanda’s focus on training and efficiency, as well as building team morale, encouraged each employee to engage in the business’s success. This, combined with a successful Semi-Annual Sale, led to a 20 percent increase in sales in July.
“It is a tremendous achievement for a single store to win Store of the Month twice in two years,” said Shauna Sloan, founder of Kid to Kid. “The team in Arvada does a fantastic job, and they deserve it.” Kid to Kid, an upscale resale franchise for kids’ clothing, toys and baby equipment, now has more than 100 locations in the United States, Portugal and Canada.
The Fricks are now proud owners of Kid to Kid Aurora, Kid to Kid Arvada, and the franchise’s sister concept for teen and young adult apparel, Uptown Cheapskate Centennial.
“The Fricks are great examples of both of our franchises, and we appreciate the great work they do,” said Sloan.
