Ideal Candidate

The ideal candidate for a HobbyTown franchise is a person who loves to have fun while working hard. Every day an owner gets to help a person find enjoyment in their life and should enjoy it themselves. A passion for assisting customers, a desire to make people happy and a sense of pride in doing it under the HobbyTown brand is essential to success.

The right candidate should have excellent people skills, know how to listen and know how to explain directions to new hobbyists. They should be a leader who is willing to train, mentor and most of all, be a team player.

Candidates with business backgrounds, who understand technology, and who can analyze reports will have an advantage. Financial experience is a plus but not essential to acquiring a HobbyTown franchise. Most of all, the candidate should be a person who strives to foster growth in all individuals, whether a child is getting a first model or an elderly person who still loves to do things the “old-fashioned” way.

Training And Support

Training consists of a 5-week program which includes on-site and in-store training, in Lincoln Nebraska and more.
