Business Description

Once Upon A Child has been in the Chicagoland market for over 20 years. The location in Hickory Hills opened nearly 10 years ago and is now available as the owners are retiring. This business is very rewarding. As an owner you'll have interactions with people who love to get the most for their money and love the recycling aspect of the business. People also love getting paid for their gently used items. Every day, Once Upon A Child is helping families buy high end clothes without the high end prices. The environment is fun and there's nothing better than doing something different to help the community every day.

It’s no secret – kids grow and keeping up with their changing sizes and styles can be expensive! Once Upon A Child, North America’s #1 children’s resale retailer, fills this need and is the solution for parents looking for high quality gently used children’s apparel, toys, shoes, baby equipment and accessories at affordable, family-friendly prices. The system average sales for Once Upon A Child is just under $1M so there's plenty of room to grow.

Growth & Expansion:
Community involvement is huge for this brand and the most successful franchisees are those who get outside the four walls of the business and network throughout the market with moms groups, day cares, hospitals and more. Opportunities also exist in marketing with additional emphasis on both traditional and digital advertising. This is part of the training for new franchisees and supported by Winmark and media buying partners.
Support & Training:
Training is required and provided by Franchisor upon transfer. Ongoing support in marketing, advertising, merchandising, inventory and financial management and more are provided by Winmark through field visits, semi-annual conferences, trade shows and regional meetings. New product buying group keeps all Once Upon A Child franchisees competitive with the big boxes on new product. Franchisor may require an additional investment in working capital.
