October 08, 2014 // Franchising.com // ATLANTA, GA – "Be in business for yourself, not by yourself," was the determination that sisters Callie Brackett and Christyn Wilkins thrived on when they founded We Tie The Knots in 2011.
Since then, the Georgia and Colorado-based wedding planning company has made its way across the nation with event and wedding planners seeking to breakaway from a corporate setting for the bliss and flexibility of working from home in the wedding industry.
According to CNN Money, the independent and 'work from home' population has surged more than 40% in the last 10 years, and We Tie The Knots wants to continue contributing to that growth while providing a memorable wedding experience to brides across the country.
"We wanted to allow people to build a financially rewarding career without sacrificing their desire to raise a family and maintain a quality of life," said Christyn Wilkins, Co-Founder of We Tie The Knots. "Joining We Tie The Knots offers those with an eye for creative design, a knack for details and a passion for planning memorable events the opportunity to embark upon a rewarding and successful career making dreams come true."
Raised in the South, both Brackett and Wilkins share a passion for entertaining that they launched into reality with the founding of We Tie The Knots, a company that injects true "southern charm and style" into every event.
With rapid plans for growth, We Tie The Knots allows aspiring wedding planners to franchise under their brand and plan events using an already-established brand identity and existing portfolio of experience—the perfect opportunity for stylish and business savvy women with a passion for event planning.
Within the first three years of starting their own wedding planning businesses in Atlanta and Denver, both sisters found themselves at the top of the wedding planning industry receiving top honors from both The Knot Magazine and Wedding Industry Experts as 'Best in Class.'
"We wanted others to be able to experience the same fulfillment, freedom and financial success that we have discovered in this industry without having to go through the complexities and uncertainties that we experienced starting the business from scratch," said Callie Brackett, Co-Founder of We Tie The Knots. "Christyn and I grew up in an entrepreneurial family, and as a result, we've always had the itch to be our own boss and control our own financial future. We believe there are a lot of people who feel the same way but don't want the risk or isolation typically associated with starting a business. That is why we have created a "blueprint" for success in this industry that we can share with others who aspire to take control of their future."
With the ambition of taking their franchise business nationwide, We Tie The Knots has already received more than 300 franchisee inquiries in response to candidate interest across the country. Working their way up the east coast this Fall, they will arrange intimate one-on-one interview sessions, giving people a preview of the industry and the company.
Benefits of working under the We Tie The Knots label include access to trusted vendors, training with their Premier Training Program, access to their "Business in a Box" that includes everything from contracts to how to set-up payroll and accounting, and most importantly, the influence and support of an already-established brand.
Established in 2011, We Tie The Knots is a franchised wedding planning company based out of Colorado and Georgia. We Tie The Knots serves couples throughout the wedding planning process, leaving them with memories that will last a lifetime.
