Flip Flop Shops Blazes Trail To Illinois

One of our favourite all-time franchise concepts is Flip Flop Shops. Here's a franchise that's created a market for a niche that I didn't think really existed: flip flops. Yet Americans love comfortable, easily taken off footwear and this franchise is blazing a trail across the country.

After establishing a foothold in some of the warmest places in the country - where flip-flops are practical footwear every day of the year - the franchise is now eyeing expansion in the colder climes of the country. Anyone who's visited the Chicago metropolitan area will know just how bitter the winters can be near Lake Michigan, but look out Chicagoland, Flip Flop Shops is coming to you.

According to Crain's, Flip Flop Shops will open its newest units in Illinois very soon. Asked about the climate challenges, founder and CEO Brian Curin said:

“During the fall holiday season, when the weather is bad, that's when most of us . . . plan trips. Before Flip Flop Shops came along, it was hard to find the styles and the brands and we're the only concept that does this 365,” Mr. Curin said. The stores also sell “warm and fuzzy” products, such as slippers and boots, in the cold months.

We're delighted to celebrate the success of Flip Flop Shops - and if you'd like to bring the franchise to your community - whatever the climiate - you're only a click away.
