Business Summary of Jamin Leather®

Jamin Leather® LLC is currently registered as a Limited Liability Company in South Carolina. The Company is owned by James J Keats (100%), Managing Member, assisted by his wife Theresa and staff.

Founded in 1979, Jamin Leather® is a retailer of over 6,000 skus of leather apparel and accessories, including private label products and non-catalog related products. Revenue is derived from print catalog and online retail of approximately 45% through their optimized websites including jaminleather.com and shop.jaminleather.com, a 6,800 square foot Myrtle Beach Catalog Outlet retail location generating over 50% of its sales, and marketplace affiliates generating approximately 10% of its sales through Amazon, Google, Facebook, TikTok, Etsy, and eBay amongst others. The Company has successfully attracted visitors to the Myrtle Beach area from all over the world as could your future franchise location.

Jamin Leather® specializes in leather apparel and accessories (some of which are made in South Carolina). Jamin Leather® offers a unique collection that rivals competitors, designs, and produces exclusive items that no one offers. Jamin Leather® has a 48 page print catalog that no known competitor produces, offers more styles of leather goods than any known competitor in virtually every apparel category, and has superior in-house customer service, retail, shipping and manufacturing staff.

Jamin Leather® uses Google marketing, remarketing, display ads and slants its marketing toward leather shoppers, bikers, alternative lifestyles, steampunk, 50 shades, and other lookalike audiences as the market trends seem to be best suited at the time. Besides the Jamin Leather® website promotions, their multi-page nationwide print catalog is mailed to a large portion of their periodically updated 200,000-customer database. Jamin Leather® schedules nationwide weekly emails, schedules social media posts thru Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, and others, and lastly, produces a bi-weekly live video recordings featuring products, trivia and consumer how-to information, live as well as pre-recorded posts on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, TikTok and Twitch simultaneously… all encompassing a well-rounded marketing plan.

The Myrtle Beach retail store is a 6,800 sq. feet of retail space with sales partially generated from local billboards, bike week promotions, local emails, MBEventGuide.com posts, print catalog hand-outs, and from their well trained and engaging staff.

Jamin Leather® also sponsors many bike week events with Charity Benefit Runs, obtains special event permits for vendors, as well as sponsors an events website for Myrtle Beach locals, tourists and bike week visitors called MBEventGuide.com. Advertisers on the site are likeminded businesses and are in close collaboration with Jamin Leather® for bike week events and places to go.

Motivation to Franchise

While the owner believes Jamin Leather® has numerous appealing attributes and outstanding growth opportunities, in 2024 at age 64 and after almost 50 years selling leather goods, the time is right to expand to new markets. He also believes franchise ownership can accelerate the brand in reaching the next level. He will remain and support the Jamin Leather® brand in the years to come.

History of Jamin Leather®

Founded in 1979 in the wonderful state of New York, Jamin Leather® formally known as Jamie’s Leather prior to 1990, has always been a retailer of leather apparel and accessories, including handmade and private label products. Revenue is generated at its flagship Myrtle Beach retail location (since 1997) and by a mail order print catalog (since 1993, samples shown below), the internet (since 1995), and through online affiliates which include Amazon, Etsy, eBay and others (beginning around 2010).
