Bricks & Minifigs Franchise Overview
About Bricks & Minifigs
Founded in 2009 and franchising since 2011, Bricks & Minifigs is the one-stop-shop franchise for all things LEGO® that offers new and used pieces and sets to complete any LEGO® collection. Today, there are 38 stores open and operating throughout 19 states and Canada.
The concept of Bricks & Minifigs originated with original founders John Masek and David Oritz. The duo met through the LEGO® resale community in Portland in 2003. They started as competitors both looking to purchase a large quantity of vintage LEGOs®, but soon realized if they combined their skill sets, they would make a great team. Using Ortiz’s contacts in the LEGO® community and Masek’s retail experience, they opened their first Bricks & Minifigs location in 2009 in Battleground, Washington as co-founders. The location was so successful, they decided to open a second location in Canby, Oregon in 2010, which became the flagship store. The current owner, Ammon McNeff learned about the brand at Salt Lake City’s Comic Convention where he and his brother, Matt, were selling their own handmade collector’s items. The brothers were already successful business owners and were always looking for new opportunities to invest. They were intrigued by Bricks & Minifigs, and within three months of learning about the brand, they bought a franchise in Orem, Utah, which opened in May 2017. The brothers impressed the then-owners, Ortiz and Masek, with their extensive knowledge of the company and passion for the mission so much so, a year later they offered Ammon and Matt the opportunity to buy the company.
