PLYMOUTH, Minn., Jan. 31, 2012 // PRNewswire // -- Lillians®, The Hippest Shoppe in Town®, today announced that it has created an additional option for its franchise offering for the remainder of 2012 to make the cost of entry even more affordable. Instead of paying the initial $25,000 franchise fee upfront, new franchisees can opt to pay an initial fee of $12,000. The remaining $13,000 will be financed by Lillians over five years.
"We know there are a number of women who are passionate about fashion and accessories and would be extremely successful shoppe owners, but they need a bit more financial assistance in order to invest in Lillians," said Cindy Deuser, CEO of Lillians Holdings Inc. "We believe this is just the deal they need to make their dreams come true."
As an additional incentive to grow its portfolio of shoppes, the company is also offering the public a $1,000 referral fee to those who refer a potential candidate who actually opens a new Lillians franchise across the country.
Lillian's current portfolio of nearly 40 locations includes 17 in Minnesota and eight in Wisconsin. Others are located in Iowa (3), Missouri (2), North Dakota (2), South Dakota (2), Illinois (1), Colorado (3) and Texas (1). The company is registered to franchise throughout the United States and growth beyond the Midwest is now in their hunt to expand!
Women interested in opening their own Lillans franchise have the opportunity to become part of one of the most unique retail experiences in the nation. After a few seconds of meandering around the shoppe, it becomes obvious by the wide variety of "priced-within-your-means" handbags and wallets, fun and funky jewelry, fashionable scarves, incredible fashion, and a variety of other seasonal items, that you have just entered the re-invention of shopping as we knew it with our mothers…a truly fun day out on the town and a privilege!
