December 14, 2020 // Franchising.com // Knoxville, TN - Buff City Soap - a rapidly growing, handmade bath, body, & home products retailer continues to expand its Tennessee presence by opening its first east Tennessee soap makeries. The brand recently opened a soap makery in Kingsport and Cookeville and is slated to open additional makeries in Tennessee over the next several weeks. All locations are owned by Jamie Mason, Brittany Vick, Jessica Pace, Vince Sartori, and Michelle Stokes. The ownership group is slated to open more than 95 Buff City Soap locations throughout Tennessee, Virginia, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina over the course of the next several years.
The new soap makeries are located at:
- 1708 East Stone Drive in Kingsport, which opened on November 13.
- 1255 Interstate Drive Suite 107 in Cookeville, which opened on November 19.
- 6631 Clinton Hwy Suite 102 near Powell, which will open December 12.
- 4327 W. Andrew Johnson Hwy Suite 3 in Morristown, which will open in early January.
The ownership group has more than 25 years of experience in the health and wellness industries, including previous experience in franchising, and after learning more about Buff City Soap, they knew it was the perfect opportunity for them.
“Having been successful with other franchise brands, we knew that Buff City Soap offered something truly unique to the brand, unlike anything in the market,” stated Jaime Mason. “We felt it was necessary to be part of this growing franchise, and we wanted to share it with communities across the South.”
Each Buff City Soap store offers more than 30 customizable scents across dozens of handcrafted soap products; including its famous soap bars, bath bombs, foaming hand soap, and even laundry soap. The brand’s products are crafted by local artisans at the in-store Makeries, which allow guests to customize the scent and ingredients used in the process to create a unique profile.
“As soon as customers enter our stores and experience our products, they’re hooked,” added Brittany Vick. “Buff City Soap offers customers a unique chance to watch their own, customizable product be handcrafted by local artisans right in front of them, which is something that no one else in the industry offers. We can’t wait for our next locations to open so we can share Buff City Soap with the Cookeville, Knoxville, and Morristown communities.”
Founded in 2013, Buff City Soap has created a high quality alternative to commercial soap products which are often full of harsh chemicals, detergents, animal fats, and sulfates. By giving customers the chance to see the whole soap making process live in each Soap Makery, Buff City Soap is disrupting the consumer goods industry by focusing on transparency of ingredients and process.
