Bricks & Minifigs Expanding Arizona Footprint
Rapidly growing LEGO retail franchise opening second Arizona store in Tucson
August 03, 2020 // Franchising.com // Orem, Utah - Bricks & Minifigs, the one-stop-shop franchise for all things LEGO®, is continuing to expand its presence in the Southwest by opening its second Arizona location in Tucson. This new store will join an existing location in Avondale.
The new Bricks & Minifigs store will be located at 6145 E Broadway Boulevard in Tucson and will be owned and operated by lifelong Tucson residents J.L. and Becky Burnett. The brand will have a soft opening on August 5 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., and will host two grand opening events on August 8 and August 9, both from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Prior to becoming Bricks & Minifigs franchisees, J.L. spent the last 18 years working in the medical field, where he provided physical therapy and was responsible for documenting daily patient treatment, helping patients work towards set goals, as well as facilitate caregiver training to patients’ family members. Becky has over a decade of experience in the defense industry and currently works at Raytheon Missiles & Defense.
“I have always dreamed of owning my own toy store and Bricks & Minifigs has given me the opportunity to pursue that dream,” stated J.L. “We were looking for a way to get into business for ourselves and with Bricks & Minifigs, we are able to provide a fun and exciting service to bring our community together, as well as build a business with our family. It truly is a dream come true for us and we can’t wait to share Bricks & Minifigs with the Tucson community.”
Bricks & Minifigs is unique in the retail industry because of the brand’s signature buy, sell, trade model. Guests can buy new and used LEGO® products at all Bricks & Minifigs stores, and also have the option to sell and trade in old or unused LEGO® sets. Customers also have the opportunity to search through individual minifigs, bulk bricks, components and accessories to complete any LEGO® set that may be missing a few pieces.
“We are excited to continue our Arizona expansion and share the joy of LEGO® with new communities,” stated Bricks & Minifigs CEO Ammon McNeff. “Our brand continues to grow and spread the educational benefits that LEGO® offers in markets across the United States, thanks to dedicated franchise partners like J.L. and Becky. We look forward to seeing the positive impact on the Tucson community that their store has and we can’t wait for them to open their doors.”
This is the first of several stores that Bricks & Minifigs is looking to open throughout Arizona. In addition to a targeted expansion in Arizona, the brand is also seeking single-unit franchise partners in the Southwest market and in major cities throughout the United States.
