Kid to Kid opens its 100th franchise location

SALT LAKE CITY, UT. – Dec. 17, 2013—Kid to Kid, an international children’s resale store, is opening its 100th franchise on Friday, December 20, 2013 in Frisco, TX. As a brand of BaseCamp Franchising, Kid to Kid now has 100 locations throughout the U.S. as well as in Portugal with several new stores scheduled to open next year.

“My husband and I decided to open a store in the Frisco area because it is such a rapidly growing area with a lot of families,” says Tracy Schwegman, Frisco store owner. “We are both thrilled about being the 100th Kid to Kid store!”

As a Kid to Kid store owner, Tracy fell into it by accident. “Almost six years ago, I was out shopping and I saw a Help Wanted sign in the window of a Kid to Kid in Plano, Texas. Four years later, I became the owner,” said Tracy. “After a short time of being an owner, my husband quit his other job and we jumped into Kid to Kid with both feet. We are now the proud owners of two Kid to Kid locations, one in Plano and now one in Frisco.”

Kid to Kid stores pay cash up front for like-new kids’ and maternity clothing, toys, and baby equipment, and then resell these products at a fraction of what they would cost new. Customers can recycle by both buying and selling used products to the store.

Shauna and Brent Sloan founded Kid to Kid almost twenty years ago when their children were still young. In 1992, they opened their first store in Sandy, UT. Two years later, the first franchise opened in Provo, UT. There are now eighty-four Kid to Kid locations in the U.S. and sixteen locations in Portugal.

“Our business is thriving because it’s a win-only proposition,” said Shauna Sloan. “Families win when they get paid for the nice things their kids have outgrown. Shoppers win and save when they outfit their kids at a fraction of the cost of new items.Our local store owners win by growing profitable businesses and our communities win as millions of quality items are conveniently recycled to new homes.It’s so rewarding to realize the number of families that we’ve helped, and will continue to help, outfit and equip their kids.”

The Frisco store will be joined in celebration by the remaining stores. “I can hardly believe that we’ve reached the 100 store milestone!” continued Shauna. “This is a growing and thriving business that offers our store owners with unprecedented technology, reporting and support.”

The grand opening will be held on Friday, December 20th at 5580 Preston Rd. Ste 103, Frisco, TX.
