“I consider having an Apricot Lane franchise the best of both worlds: running my own business with autonomy but also having a team of professionals that can help me as needed. I also appreciate participating in monthly conference calls where Apricot Lane franchisees can exchange and discuss ideas and opportunities.”
Diane Holtz, Fairfield, CT
“Apricot Lane gave us the opportunity to open our own small business while having the security of an experienced corporate structure behind us. Having the Apricot Lane name opened doors for us to be able to have a premier retail location and the opportunity to include some of the top brands into our inventory. One of our favorite things about Apricot Lane is that we are able to embrace what makes us unique and we hand select every item that comes into our store. Getting to work together as a family and experiencing our hard work together, is one of the greatest feelings there is!”
Cathy Young, Dallas, TX
“We wanted a franchise where we could be our own owners but have the support of proven professionals. This is Apricot Lane. The support we received before and during our grand opening was beyond expectations. Now that we are open, we are just a phone call away from getting awesome support in Marketing, Social Media, Store Operations and Buying. Regular scheduled calls with each of these areas keep us on track and confident in managing our franchise. We couldn’t imagine taking on this journey without this type of strong support.”
Sherry Mazzola, Strongsville, OH
“You own your own business yet have the help and benefits and support of being involved in a franchise. You’re allowed to purchase the merchandise that you want to carry in your store and also that your customers want. There are always bumps along the way of having your own business, but there’s always someone there to help you along the way. Overall, being a part of Apricot Lane has been a wonderful experience in my life!”
Jeanie Anderson, Fargo, ND

“I love being part of the franchise. They offer buying tools, the vendor discounts are wonderful, we have monthly conference calls where we can share and learn about each other’s business because each store is unique and I do really enjoy being a part of that.”

“Apricot Lane has been an incredible addition to our “small town” downtown, in Independence Kansas. And the great folks at Apricot Lane made it easy! I have been totally dependent on Apricot Lane “holding my hand” to walk me through the entire process.”
