NTY Clothing Exchange comes with a proven successful business model. NTY Franchise Company has developed a clear path that will help you to avoid years of trial and error, reduce costly mistakes, shorten your learning curve and, ultimately, reach your goals sooner. The following are key benefits that come along with a NTY Clothing Exchange franchise:

Business Planning

We’ll work with you to develop a plan that can be used as the financial and operational guide for your store during the critical start-up phase of your business.

Training

We conduct three separate, comprehensive training programs that provide our new owners with both pre-opening and post-opening classes and hands-on experience.

Bank Financing

We have a Small Business Administration (SBA) preferred status lender who can help you with prequalification before you commit to opening your store. This lender knows our brand, our business plan and how to process loans quickly and efficiently.

Store Location Assistance

NTY Franchise company has adopted a standardized real estate process that has a clearly defined all-in-one strategy for site selection, lease negotiation and legal review.

Store Opening Assistance

We have proven vendors already in place to get the best pricing and service on everything needed for store buildout: fixtures, equipment, interior/exterior signage, point-of-sale system and more.

Point-of-Sale (POS) System

The unique software that runs our proprietary POS system was specifically designed to meet the ever-changing needs of the resale business. With touch screen capabilities and a built-in buy matrix, the system assists in the buying and selling of NTY Clothing Exchange inventory.

Regional Operations Manager (ROM)

Our Regional Operations Managers (ROM) serve as small business consultants for our franchisees. They are responsible for ensuring success in all areas of the resale operation, including financial performance, merchandising and customer service.

Marketing

Before a store even opens, we help to create excitement about NTY Clothing Exchange. From national to local levels, we provide marketing support to all stores. Get more in-depth information about each of these topics within the Franchise Benefits and Investment Details tabs at the top of this page.

Also, part of digital marketing is the free NTY Clothing Exchange app. It’s tied to Club CE Rewards program, our customer loyalty program, and allows your customers to track their reward points, receive and track promotions, refer friends, find locations & even store their receipts on their mobile device. This program is fully integrated with our Point of Sale allowing the system to be easy to use for both the customers and the stores.  The best part is the ability to use the data from the point of sale for data driven marketing messages to make it as customized to customers as possible.

Timeline to Store Opening

The typical length of time between our acceptance of the Franchise Agreement and the opening of your store varies from 6 to 12 months. This period may be longer or shorter, depending on the time of year, availability of financing, site selection, local construction delays, how soon you can attend training or other factors. You must complete the initial training programs and open your store by the date that we and you agree on within the Franchise Agreement.
