Why should I open a HobbyTown USA® franchise instead of opening an independent hobby shop?

HobbyTown USA® is the most trusted, recognized name in the hobby industry. We have special agreements with distributors and manufacturers so you can get products on your shelves quickly and at a lower cost. We have trained staff to assist you with any and all questions. We have an exclusive point-of-sale (POS) system, and we provide you with monthly financials to assist you in running your business. In addition, we have an annual owners' convention and trade show where you learn what is going on in the industry and see the latest and greatest products hitting the market.

Do I need hobby experience to open a HobbyTown USA® franchise?

No hobby experience is required to own a HobbyTown USA®.  It is important that you have an interest in hobbies since you will be working with customers that are passionate about their hobby. However, it is more important that you have at least two years experience managing people or owning your own business.

 

What types of training do you offer franchisees?

Our training consists of three phases. In phase I, you will work and train for at least one week at one of our locations. For phase II, you will come to the home office for a week of business training. Phase III consists of onsite training lasting almost three weeks at your store, which takes place during the opening.

What product lines does HobbyTown USA® carry?

We are a full-line hobby retailer, with every aisle offering something different.  Our lines include Model Railroading, Games, Radio Control Land, Models, Paints and Tools, Radio Control Air, Specialty and Educational Toys and Science.  We have found carrying a diversity of product lines is key in the success of our stores

How long will it take to open my HobbyTown USA® franchise?

From the time the lending and the lease are in place, it takes approximately 8 weeks to have your store up and running. Note: This can fluctuate depending upon how long the location build-out requires.

Can I own multiple units?

Yes, you can own more than one store. We do not encourage owning more than one location in the beginning to provide you ample time to learn the business. We recommend the growth of one store initially, as we have found that following this model increases your chances of success without increasing your overhead.

 

How do I get started?

 HobbyTown USA® began in 1985 with one hobby store in Lincoln, Nebraska. Today, we are the largest hobby store in the world with over 160 HobbyTown USA® stores open or under development across the United States.
