Buddy’s Home Furnishings Opens Franchise Locations In Alabama And North Carolina
February 02, 2023 // Franchising.com // ORLANDO, FLA. - Buddy’s Home Furnishings, a retailer specializing in the sales and rental ownership of furniture, electronics, appliances and home accessories, has opened two new franchise locations in Leeds, Alabama, and Roxboro, North Carolina, bringing its nationwide footprint to more than 335 stores.
The Leeds store is operated by bebe stores inc., one of Buddy's largest multi-unit franchise groups with more than 60 stores across 10 states. Martin Fontela, Chief Operating Officer of bebe, said the company is excited to continue its expansion with Buddy's.
"Buddy’s fosters a team-minded mentality between the franchisee and franchisor, which is a dynamic you don’t find in most franchise opportunities," said Fontela. “It’s a huge reason why we’ve been able to grow at an exponential rate, and we’re proud to open the doors of our 64th location in Leeds.”
The Roxboro location is the seventh store in the portfolio of Kappa Investments, LLC. Jerry Marshall, owner of Kappa, expressed similar enthusiasm for their continued growth with the company.
"The Buddy's Playbook is built to help us as franchise owners," Marshall said. "It’s not a checklist. It is a tested and action-oriented guide to operating a successful business, which has allowed us to scale our business and open new stores like our latest location in Roxboro."
Since adopting the franchising model in early 2009, Buddy’s has established a strong history of multi-unit success, which is why 88% of Buddy’s franchisees own multiple units.
“Bebe and Kappa exemplify the rewards that come from following the Buddy’s system and leveraging the expertise available to them,” said Mitchell Lee, Director of Franchise Development. “We look forward to supporting their continued growth and working together to bring communities across the nation an affordable way to attain home necessities.”
