Marthé Enterprises Home Furnishings Franchise Information:
Marthé Enterprises is leading the industry in developing new ways of furniture distribution and direct-to-public sales. In today's economy, consumers are looking to save money with every purchase they make, leading an industry wide quest for lower prices and discounts. Marthé has developed an extensive business model that enables Marthé partner stores to offer those sought after savings by drastically reducing the typical expenses associated with retail outlets in the home furnishing industry.
An average home furnishings store has tremendous overhead which includes salaries for sales people, high-cost prime retail space, management salaries, large franchise fees, and tremendous advertising costs. We at Marthé have successfully cut out the vast majority of these costs to allow our partner stores to sell high quality and name brand home furnishings for a fraction of the typical retail cost. Marthé has developed a highly effective and simple business model for advertising and selling bedding, home furnishings, and spas direct to the public at true wholesale prices, passing discounts of 40-80% off typical retail prices on to customer and allowing the partner store to be highly profitable.
Planning Your Success
Marthé offers a complete pre-opening program and with full service assistance. Included are business plan development, protected territories, market and location selection assistance, lease negotiations, and opening inventory determinations for maximum store profitability.
If you don't know the first thing about home furnishings and/or have never had sales experience, through Marthé's in-depth specialized training program, you will learn product knowledge, merchandising, buying and pricing, accounting, and salesmanship. You will receive hands-on experience in our corporate training stores. Experienced instructors head our training sessions at our national headquarters.
