HobbyTown Builds on Its Strengths, Predicts a Strong 2016

HobbyTown is a business you and your family can be proud to own. We have become the foremost resource and destination for family fun and entertainment by embracing, supporting and maximizing the strengths and diversity of each Franchise Owner.

We showed strong growth in 2015 with the addition of twelve new stores. From Texas to South Dakota, Pennsylvania to California and many states in between, it was a great year for hobbyists and the Franchise Owners who share their passion. With six brand new stores and six new co-branded locations, we’re headed in the right direction.

2016 is here, and we are excited to add even more stores to the HobbyTown family. We are looking at opening multiple stores for at least six existing owners in Wisconsin, Louisiana, Michigan and Texas. Three others have signed agreements in the works, with three more already looking at locations. Plus, there are five existing independent hobby stores that are planning to co-brand with HobbyTown this year as well.

All in all, 2015 was strong and 2016 is looking even stronger. Become part of a proven system for successful hobby retailing. Hobby On!

HobbyTown Co-Branding Gains Momentum

Published: August 14, 2015 – Model Retailer Magazine

HobbyTown co-branding with independent dealers is proliferating nationwide as several well-established hobby shops have affiliated themselves with the HobbyTown brand.

Recent sign-ups include: King R/C (King, N.C.); Big Valley Hobbies (Alamosa, Colo.); Kranzel’s Hobbies (Camp Hill, Pa.); Hobby Crossing (Bowling Green, Ky.); and R/C Fun Park (Granger, Ind.).

Co-branding gets a ringing endorsement from Bruce Throne, who runs Walt’s Hobbies in Syracuse, N.Y., and recently stepped down as president of the National Retail Hobby Stores Association (NRHSA). “I should have co-branded years ago,” Throne says.

Additionally, HobbyTown has announced several new franchises, with stores opening in: Waterloo, Iowa; Abilene and Brownsville, Texas; and Sioux Falls, S.D. HobbyTown stores are also on the way in Madison, Wis., and Southfield, Mich.
