Just Between Friends Franchise Business Overview
About Just Between Friends
Just Between Friends is the leading pop-up consignment sales event franchise in North America. In this age of thrift, discount and bargain shopping are no longer stigmatized. As a result of the Great Recession and online shopping, consumers are more savvy than ever — and they expect every dollar to go further.
In 1997, Just Between Friends was created in a living room in Tulsa, Oklahoma when Shannon Wilburn, a mother of two young children, and her friend Daven Tackett hosted a sale with 17 friends as consignors and had gross sales of $2000. In 2015, that same sale hosted two events and grossed almost 1 million dollars. The sales caught on with families and grew, so in 2003, they formed Just Between Friends Franchise Systems, Inc. Wilburn is now sole owner and CEO of Just Between Friends Franchise Systems, Inc., which has 153 franchises in 28 states and one in Canada. System wide sales in 2015 topped 27 million and they expect to top 29 million in 2016. In June 2015, Forbes Magazine named Just Between Friends one of the top five franchises in the United States, up from #10 in 2014. JBF was also named one of Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top 500 Franchises in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. Just Between Friends Franchise Systems Inc. also received a “Franchisee Satisfaction Award” and was named in the Top 50 franchises by “Franchise Business Review” for the past 6 years.
