Buff City Soap Cleaning Up Clarksville
Lifestyle brand continues explosive growth in its home state; will have 14 total stores in the Volunteer State.
January 27, 2020 // Franchising.com // Memphis, Tenn. - Buff City Soap – the Southern-based lifestyle brand changing the way people buy their everyday soap by providing plant-based alternatives – is opened its first store in Clarksville on January 25.
The new store is located at 920 US Hwy 76 Connector Unit 90 and is the first in the Clarksville area. Buff City Soap is known for its famous in-store Makery, where customers can watch employees handcraft their own soaps. The brand also houses a retail store where consumers can purchase bath bombs, body scrubs, beard balms and other bath products.
Buff City Soap was founded in 2013 when Brad Kellum, a former firefighter paramedic discovered that his every day store-bought soap was packed with cow fat and other synthetic materials. He, along with his fiancé and cofounder Jennifer Ziemianin, a registered nurse, began experimenting with a plant-based alternative in their garage.
Now, the brand offers traditional soap bars, along with a men’s care product line, plant-based laundry soap, skin-care products and other accessories. Each shop includes a Makery, where employees handcraft each product in-store. Customers can customize their products. Furthering its customization promise, the shops host birthday parties, bachelorette nights and other events, and launched a subscription box service.
“We are incredibly proud of Buff City Soap’s growth,” stated CEO Justin Delaney. “We are excited to continue our growth in our home state of Tennessee and we are looking forward to providing communities across the country with access to plant-based, healthy alternatives. We can’t wait to establish the Buff City Soap brand in the Clarksville community.”
Buff City Soap has 31 locations open in ten states, including Tennessee, Texas, Arkansas, Kentucky, Colorado, Alabama, Mississippi, Ohio and Florida. There are currently over 40 additional stores in various stages of development.
