Your opportunity to get your own franchise!


Leather apparel and accessories franchise.


Why Franchise with Jamin Leather®

Especially for the leather apparel industry, BRICK and MORTAR appears to be the future focus of leather shopping as more and more consumers are frustrated with the lack of English-speaking companies taking over internet shopping of leather goods. With inconvenient return issues, unexpected size and fit problems, online discounts that reflect the ACTUAL value of those goods, with hyped up expectations of inferior goods including fake leather, and infiltration of large conglomerates swallowing up smaller businesses as they out spend and saturate the market from overseas.

SHOP LOCAL!  American consumers would all prefer to support good, old fashion American run companies with a hometown feel, impeccable personal service and quality goods in their own town.


Motivation to Franchise

While the owner believes Jamin Leather® has numerous appealing attributes and outstanding growth opportunities, in 2023 at age 63 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 on a full or part time level barring any health issues.
