Blue Moon Estate Sales Eyes Tennessee Expansion
Raleigh-based estate sales franchise opens first location in Memphis; sets sights on Nashville, Knoxville, Chattanooga
RALEIGH, N.C. - Sept. 21, 2017 // PRNewswire // - Blue Moon Estate Sales - the leading estate sales franchise in the country and pioneer of the new niche - is eyeing major markets in Tennessee for expansion, including Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga.
Blue Moon's plan for Tennessee expansion comes on the heels of the brand's entry into Memphis in early August. Co-founder Deb Blue said that she envisions eight to ten Blue Moon territories statewide over the next two years.
"When you combine America's aging baby boomer population with the passing of the World War II generation and add a growing inclination toward downsizing, the result is more estate sales and a phenomenal opportunity for self-employment," said Deb, who co-founded Blue Moon Estate Sales with her son, David. "As we plan our next growth phase, we look forward to further standardizing the industry and beginning our search for enthusiastic franchise partners to lead Blue Moon's expansion throughout Tennessee."
A retired physician, Deb got into estate sales after buying and selling antiques for nearly 30 years, because she saw the economic and demographic trends that would make the industry grow. In 2009, she and David launched Blue Moon Estate Sales, which rapidly became the most active estate sales business in Raleigh, North Carolina. Shortly after in 2013, they began optimizing the numerous processes in the business and made it a reproducible and reliable franchise company. Since officially launching its franchise opportunity, Blue Moon Estate Sales has opened more than 15 locations across North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Tennessee and Mississippi.
Today, the brand has helped more than 1,500 families with its residential, commercial, and moving liquidation services, providing an organized and professional way to ease the complicated and overwhelming burden of selling a personal estate. From determining a convenient timeline to sweeping up after the sale, Blue Moon does everything. Other services include, but are not limited to: a complimentary and extensive evaluation of the home, appropriate pricing from antiques to everyday items, categorization and staging of the home, marketing, hosting and staffing of the sale.
"Many people find themselves at a crossroads in their lives. They may be downsizing, dealing with the death of a loved one or moving to an elderly community. Our goal is to manage their estate sale in a professional and caring manner while using our proven system to get them the most profit," noted Deb. "We feel fortunate to have earned the trust of a loyal fan base throughout the Atlantic Coast, and we can't wait to see the same level of support as we expand in the Volunteer State."
Deb said the company is looking for energetic, caring people who want to help those in need while enjoying the rewards of owning their own business. "With a flexible schedule, low startup cost and very low overhead owning your own estate sales franchise is right within your reach," she added.
The initial franchise fee is $30,000 for a population base of 450,000 with ongoing royalties of 5% of gross sales. This fee includes extensive training, marketing materials, and customized IT work.
