Franchise Q & A

Who Is Your Ideal Candidate to Own a Jamin Leather® Franchise?

Though we may prefer a smart, friendly and ambitious owner operator arrangement, an experienced investor that can put in place long term management team with the same qualifications that know how to find ambitious staff to successfully run the day to day operation. Jamin Leather® does not require expert training, certifications or talents to run the retail location, but does require the right staffing beyond the owner operator/manager. We find this type of retail easy and fun. Where else can you enjoy all the unique fashions, the feel and even the smell of genuine leather on a daily basis?  We’re excited to partner with entrepreneurs who want to be involved making a positive impact on their community!

What Is The Size and Location Recommendations?

When it comes to size, the ideal location size is generally between 2000 and 3000 square feet to accommodate the majority of the product offering by the franchise as seen online. Higher traffic locations (like walking traffic) may only need 800-1000 square feet offering our best selling products. Most of the size will depend on your budget and traffic (walking or driving) at or around the specific location. Each franchise product selection will be tailored to their specific region or location.

As far as location is concerned, Jamin Leather® sells predominately leather apparel and may not be conducive for most southern states, excluding maybe high tourist traffic locations (including airports). It is recommended to have a selection and mixture of leather products that can sell year-round. Having a location in an area that is cool or cold most of the year the return on investment will be much greater. Though jackets don’t sell as well in the dead of summer but leather shorts, halters, belts, wallets and many other accessories sell year-round. Plus, if you are near highly populated areas, affluent areas, or in near performing venues, you may be more successful with the leather apparel all year round. Keep in mind, Jamin Leather® brand has exclusive products you won’t find just anywhere.

What Makes Jamin Leather® Different?

EVERYTHING! The fashion, the feel and the smell! We don’t require technical know-how to operate a retail leather apparel store. All you need is attentive and friendly staff, a great selection, effortless marketing and brand recognition. An ability to entertain your guests (customers) with our products, product selection, unique offerings, displays, in-store video, in-store kiosks, enhanced mannequins, the unique décor and fitting music playlists, as customers and staff dance while they shop.

Where Do I Get All My Inventory?

Your primary source of inventory is directly thru the parent company of Jamin Leather®. You will be able to purchase directly thru the website the majority of all the products. Some limited products can be purchased directly from select suppliers. No unapproved purchasing will be permitted but depending on the specific location, some liberties may be granted with prior approval.

How Much Cash On-Hand Will I Need To Proceed?

At this present time there is no required amount you will need on hand but if you or anyone you’re partnering with is seeking financing it’s best to have at least a 700 credit score to prevent getting the funding needed to proceed.

What is the Royalty Rate?

Just like any well-run franchise there is a ____% royalty on gross sales along with a ___% marketing fee. The marketing fee is used in the nationwide or regional promotions of the brand thru it’s catalog printing, catalog distribution, email marketing, social media presence, and a supporting website. Each franchisee will have available all the selling tools needed, including videos, graphics, copy, slogans and instruction information to assist in gaining future sales in-store and any hyper-local marketing, all provided by the franchisor.
