Kid to Kid in Huntersville, NC

HUNTERSVILLE, NC – The Kid to Kid franchise proudly awards the Kid to Kid Store of the Month for September to owner Erin Martin of the Huntersville Kid to Kid store. The Store of the Month award is given to a franchise store that has shown outstanding performance and customer satisfaction.

For the month of September, the Huntersville Kid to Kid was selected from more than 100 stores because of their increases in invoices and sales as well as their dedication to customer and employee satisfaction.  The Huntersville store has seen invoices increase by 32 percent while sales increased by 64 percent from last year.  These numbers show that the Erin and her team are bringing in more of the products their customers want.

Erin attributes much of her success to applying new things she’s learned at the company’s Annual Meeting, quarterly performance groups and from visiting other stores.  “Each time I attend a meeting or visit another store,  I find 10 or 15 things that we can improve upon,” said Erin.  The Huntersville team has also made improvements to their buying process by reviewing  items brought in by customers while they are in the store shopping. This has made a big difference in efficiency and in customer satisfaction.

Another big focus has been on improving employee morale. Erin has placed a heavy emphasis on building the team and improving employee satisfaction which has significantly resulted in reduced turnover and increased efficiency. Fun things like a monthly contest keep the staff motivated and goal focused.

Since then, the store has helped over 40,000 local families stretch their budget by selling and shopping gently used clothing, baby gear and toys. “It’s a perfect system of families helping families,” commented Salt Lake store owner and franchise founder Shauna Sloan.  “When parents bring in things to sell, they can be assured that their items will be used by local kids who need and want them.”

Kid to Kid in Rockville, Maryland

ROCKVILLE, MD – The Kid to Kid franchise proudly awards the Kid to Kid Store of the Month for June to Leily Kiani in Rockville, Maryland.  This award is presented to a store that has shown impressive performance and/or improvement.  The Rockville Kid to Kid store has been open a little over a year and has grown in leaps and bounds. In June, their first month with year over year comparison, sales increased by an amazing 146% placing this rookie store in the top 20% for the entire Kid to Kid system.

Leily credits the franchise staff, the Kid to Kid community and her team for the success:  “I love the BaseCamp Franchising support staff.  I attribute much of my success to the Kid to Kid franchise formula—it works.  The Kid to Kid owners are a wealth of knowledge as well.  It’s so great to know that you are not alone and that you can count on them to tell you their experience.” As for her team she brags, “I like working with every one of them, and they enjoy working with each other. That clearly shows to the customers who are responded by shopping often and telling their friends.”

Before becoming a Kid to Kid franchisee, Leily worked full-time in Corporate Customer and Client Services for over 20 year in various high-level positions. However, she wasn’t happy. She wanted her own business where she could manage the way she wanted and at the same time, help out her community.  “Although I have been working really long hours, I’m enjoying myself,” said Leily.  “I’ve done corporate work for so long.  I’m now having fun!”

KENNESAW, GA – The Kid to Kid franchise proudly awards Store of the Month for April to Brent Brock in Kennesaw, Georgia.  The Kennesaw store, located at 2953 North Cobb Parkway, has seen outstanding improvements ever since Brent purchased the store in January 2011 – culminating in an exceptional performance in April.  Year over year sales increased 33%, and the number of invoices was up 23.5%.  These impressive milestones along with Brent’s dedicated team helped the Kennesaw store earn the coveted Store of the Month award.

Brent is convinced that the increase in sales and invoices correlates with a greater selection of merchandise—both new and used.  The store more than doubled the amount of product that they purchased from customers, and Brent made a significant investment in new product, resulting in a store filled with great values on everything a growing child needs.  “Customers have a better experience because they have more stuff to choose from,” said Brent.

How did they do it?  Brent credits his super-fast employees, led by store manager Brisa Greenman, for working together as a team and applauds Brisa’s work ethic and “ownership” of the store.  “She’s like a partner.  She’s constantly thinking about the store and how to make it better.”  That dedication has clearly paid off!

Houston Galleria Texas Kid to Kid HOUSTON, TX—Kid to Kid of Houston Galleria, a children’s and maternity resale outlet, was named Store of the Month for March by the Kid to Kid Franchise System. Owners Will and Sherri Sakson are thrilled about the success of their store. They attribute much of the growth to a great staff, creative promotions, and an increase in customers as word of Kid to Kid spreads.

During February, store sales were up 21.5 percent due to keenly timed promotions and events. They centered sales around holidays and local events which directly applied to their customers. These thought-out promotions brought the community out and boosted sales.

The Houston Galleria store is one of 25 Kid to Kid locations in Texas, and the Saksons believe this strength in numbers plays a major impact in the success of their store. As word spreads of Kid to Kid, new customers come pouring through the doors each day to buy and sell gently used kids’ apparel and accessories.

Will and Sherri Sakson say they couldn’t be where they are without such an outstanding staff. “They provide excellent customer experiences,” said Will Sakson, “We rely on our staff very heavily.” The Saksons were careful about hiring the right people and training them properly, and their diligence in this area has paid off. Manager Veronica Castaneda as well as new assistant managers Jessica Davison and Iris Delgado work extremely hard to provide the best in customer service and store maintenance, creating an atmosphere customers love.

As their store continues to grow and progress, Will and Sherri Sakson are excited to provide a great resource to the community in providing the best things kids outgrow at unbeatable prices.

Covington Washington Kid to Kid COVINGTON, WA—Kid to Kid of Covington, WA was recently named Store of the Month in February by the Kid to Kid Franchise System. Since owner Annette Cyr opened her store five years ago, she instituted many means for consistent growth. Her constant improvements caused drastic increases in sales, landing her store the honorable title of Store of the Month.

Among other accomplishments, the Covington store experienced a 300 percent sales increase since its opening. With record high sale levels of $48,563 in January, Cyr and her staff enjoyed a 32 percent increase over the last year and had their “best January ever!”

Cyr attributes much of her success to taking recommendations from her support team and implementing their suggested changes in her store. Following store visits from her franchise representatives, Cyr retrained her employees to improve efficiency, re-arranged her store to increase sales, and showed her employees how to encourage customers to sell their gently used product to her store.

Cyr worked hard to keep her store up to date with current trends. She believes her efforts to create an attractive store and use current marketing means led to vast improvements. These initiatives, combined with an excellent team, are what helped the store succeed. “My team is amazing,” she said. “They make all the difference.”
