Well Established Plato's Closet Franchise - PRICE REDUCED
Don't Miss This Opportunity! Well below start up costs for New StoreQ!
This Plato's Closet location entered the El Paso market in the fall of 2013 so there is a solid customer base to build from. This store is owned by an out of state, multi-unit franchisee so a hands on local buyer will have an opportunity to grow sales exponentially with a focus on this location.
Active ownership would decrease the current labor costs significantly and provide much needed attention on things like events in the store, increased store hours for customers, better training time for staff, timely and consistent merchandising and advertising efforts. The system average gross sales for Plato's Closet locations nationally is just under $1M so there's plenty of opportunity to build upon the foundation of sales currently set at this store.
This store is priced lower than starting a store from scratch so if you're looking for an established business with a ton of upside, Plato's Closet El Paso is worth a look!
