December 29, 2014 // Franchising.com // BLOOMINGTON, MN - FLIPS®, the original flip flop retail concept specializing in fashion and comfort, announced today the launch of its unique franchise program, with expansion targeting multiple locations throughout California, Arizona, Nevada and Florida. FLIPS has one of the largest inventories of quality flip flops in the retail industry, carrying more than 200 styles and offering world-class customer service acknowledged by guests every day.
"FLIPS offers an exclusive assortment of the hottest new flip flops for women, men and kids," said Rudy Simondi, founder and CEO of FLIPS. "With flip flops being one of the fastest growing mainstream footwear choices, our team has decided now is the right time to expand our business and bring a wide selection of flip flops to people across the United States."
FLIPS' proprietary patented merchandising system is extremely interactive and offers customers an easy and fun way to find the right style and size. Customers simply match the location number of the pair they like from the tabletop display, use the pull-out bar below to easily locate their size and find the perfect pair. "We're innovators in bringing fashion and orthotic comfort to the marketplace and it's a direction we're very excited about.
