Buddy’s Home Furnishings is set to grow to 300 stores nationwide after signing a multi-unit franchise deal in Georgia.
The home accessories company that supplies furniture, electrical appliances and further home accessories has awarded TryBudCo LLC three franchised locations across Georgia. Ray Muncy, an operating partner with TryBudCo. had this to say:
“I came across Buddy’s franchise opportunity when I thought I was closing the chapter on my rent-to-own career,” said Muncy. “It encouraged me to venture into franchise ownership and re-ignited my love for the industry. The Buddy’s people and their structured franchise support are what attracted me most to the opportunity, and I look forward to continuing to work with them as we grow our multi-unit franchise footprint.”
With this deal, Buddy’s will grow to 300 stores across the U.S.A. While three are confirmed, there is the prospect of this deal increasing to 10 stores.
“We’re thrilled to partner with TryBudCo to offer more communities across Georgia an affordable way to attain home necessities,” said Mitchell Lee, director of franchise development. “We’ve identified three strong markets for TryBudCo’s initial phase of multi-unit development, and I look forward to witnessing their future growth and success.”
“It is amazing to see how Buddy’s has continued to expand over the last 60 years, especially through franchising”, said Michael Bennett, CEO of Buddy’s. “On behalf of our home office team, we warmly welcome TryBudCo to the Buddy’s family.”
After Buddy’s foundation in 1962, it adopted the current franchise model in 2009 and has led to the creation of 300 stores, of which 262 are franchised locations.
