Did you know that the average American throws out about 65 pounds of clothes per year? 85% of that textile waste ends up in landfills. That’s a lot of clothes in landfills! Now what if we told you there was a way for your to turn those 20 billion pounds of clothes into money in your pocket?
Clothes Bin is doing just that! With experience since 1986 in the clothing, shoes, and textile business, Clothes Bin is opening their successful business up for franchising.
As a franchisee for Clothes Bin, you could own bins in locations all around your city. Then, all you have to do is sit back and wait for the bins to fill. The bins do all the work! Using the Clothes Bin’s BLIP technology, the bins even alert you when they are full! Which means all you have to do is cash in.
Simply put, there’s no storefront to build out, no inventory to buy and nothing gets spoiled over time.
Clothes Bin is a great franchise opportunity because…
- The business is simple.
- There are no inventory, building, or construction costs – no office or warehouse necessary!
- Financing is available.
- The bins take care of business – all you do is collect and deliver.
- You don’t need a storefront or large staff.
As Nick Boarui, the COO for Clothes Bin, puts it, “The nice thing about that is that it’s actually the least amount of work [that] produces the highest amount of money per pound.” You don’t have to sort the clothes, go door to door collecting clothes, or anything else! Just place the bins, wait until they fill up, then cash in.
Clothes Bin is looking for franchisees who…
- Are looking for a career transition.
- Have other franchises.
- Are college grads.
- Like the idea of a family business.
- Are looking for extra income.
- Value the environment.
Don’t quit your day job! Because of its simple model, Clothes Bin actually allows their franchisees to keep their day jobs. Of course, the model also allows room for growth if a break from you day job, or a career change, is exactly what you’re looking for. You can start and stay with 40 bins in your location and run your Clothes Bin business in your off hours, or you can purchase more bins in more territories and make it your new career! With Clothes Bin, your destiny really is in your hands.
Not only does Clothes Bin care for the environment by keeping pounds of textiles out of landfills, they also support the local schools through their school program. By placing bins at schools Clothes Bin commits to giving a portion of their profits right back to that school!
“Generally with our school program, we pay a price per pound, so that they can get behind our program and as they increase the amount of clothing that they are recycling, the amount of money that they get back on a monthly basis also increases.” – Nick Boarui, Clothes Bin COO
The Clothes Bin way:
- Place the bins
- People contribute
- Service the bins (collect the clothing)
- Unload the contents (get paid!)
With Clothes Bin, you get to choose how you want to make money. Once the bins are full and have been collected, you can sell back to Clothes Bin’s corporate office. This enables you to be as hands off and part time as possible. Alternatively, you can see to second-hand stores and similar businesses.
The corporate offices at Clothes Bins are committed to helping their franchisees make the most of their business. Through the new franchisee training process, franchisees gain familiarity with their territory to negotiate rent and sign leases. After, franchisees learn how to drive the trucks and service the bins. They become familiar with the BLIP technology. Clothes Bin makes sure you get the most affordable rent and the most price per pound.
“We assist with the learning, who the buyers are, we target them based on demographics of where the first stores or second-hand stores, flea markets are located based on the sizes of their stores and we go and meet with the owners and train franchisees on how to procure buyers.” – Nick Boarui, Clothes Bin COO
Bottom line, the initial franchisee fee is $35,000 with a $5,000 discount for military, veterans, police, and firemen. The royalty fee is low, and remember, no overhead costs! Clothes Bin makes it easy for you to own your own business and make your own money.
