Buff City Soap Opening Second Store
The Specialty, Plant-Based Soap Maker Expands to Secor Road Location in the City of Toledo
January 08, 2021 // Franchising.com // Toledo, Ohio - On January 16th, 2021, Buff City Soap will celebrate the grand opening of its new Toledo store located at 3444 Secor Road in Secor Square near Whole Foods. It’s sister store located at 7103 Orchard Centre Drive in Holland, Ohio offers a unique shopping experience and product to its regional customers that allows them to customize their own soaps, bath bombs and other bathing products. This personalization process is what sets the boutique store apart from other personal care stores.
"We are excited to expand to Toledo and provide better access to our specialty products and experiences,” said Nick Kunkel, Buff City Soap franchise owner and founding member of the company. “At Buff City, we offer a quality product that's a premium offering for the personal care experience. We take a daily routine and turn it into something fun and novel. The positive response from people around Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan has been overwhelming, and this expansion is a thrilling next step for Buff City Soap."
The Holland location has reported tremendous success in its first year of operations, with sales up more than 130 percent over the past year. It quickly became a Top 10 store within the Buff City Soap family of stores nationwide, leading the way in volume and in-store experience.
The current pandemic, which limited the Holland store’s foot traffic, did not significantly slow that location down, as customers have developed a heightened focus on hygiene to stay safe. Kunkel explained, “Our customers talk about wanting to stay safe and healthy, but they also stress wanting to shop locally and support their community. That has been really heartwarming and has given us confidence to move forward into expansion. People love visiting us in Holland, but are craving a location that’s closer to home for a lot of our customers.”
The new 2,600-square-foot Buff City Soap store will be open daily from 10 a.m. through 8 p.m.
