Business Description

Plato's Closet opened in the Big Flats market in November and has been developing a strong and loyal base of repeat customers ever since. Brand recognition is strong which benefits newer locations like this.

As a brand Plato’s Closet was ranked the #1 Retail Franchise Investment in the $150,000 - $500,000 range by Forbes for the last two years and has been #1 in it's category in Entrepreneur's Franchise 500 on an annual basis. The system wide sales average across nearly 440 stores is just under $1M. The business and financial model for this brand is unparalleled.

This location is an excellent opportunity to acquire an existing business and hit the ground running. For the right candidate there is also an opportunity to acquire the neighboring store - Style Encore - as both businesses compliment each other.

If there’s one constant with the teen to twenty-something demographic it’s change. While changing hair color, profile pics, musical tastes and other interests are common, nothing requires more attention than their ever changing fashion needs! The exciting part about this group is they spend money to stay on top of the latest trends – to the tune of about $50 Billion annually plus another $170 Billion that others spend on them!

As the established leader in the teen resale-retail space, Plato’s Closet offers gently-used, brand-name apparel and accessories to both girls and guys at a fraction of the retail cost. With nearly 440 locations and more opening every month, Plato’s Closet is the fastest growing franchise in the teen retail space.

If you're looking for a business with a proven brand and the support in place to help you succeed, Plato's Closet in Big Flats is worth checking out!
