Run your own clothing alterations business

Very few people nowadays have the skills needed to repair or make alterations to their clothes. This coupled with the fact that few body shapes conform to the standard European sizing, means that there is a growing demand for a professional alterations service.

Recognising the need for a high quality, modern clothing alterations business The Zip Yard was founded in 2005. Since then The Zip Yard has grown extensively to become one of the most dominant garment alteration retail outlets on the high street. Taking a contemporary approach to the clothing alterations business, The Zip Yard branches provide a quick, efficient service in clean, modern premises.

The Zip Yard is currently looking for franchise owners to continue its nationwide expansion. Candidates need to be hardworking, focused and enjoy meeting and dealing with customers and staff alike. People skills are essential, as The Zip Yard franchise owners are dedicated to delivering a high quality service to customers while building a diligent team who take pride in their work.

A background in the garment industry is not necessary as all necessary training will be provided. As well as this The Zip Yard will provide assistance with finding the right premises in the best location, recruitment, staff training, training on the bespoke computer system, customer service and marketing.

The Zip Yard franchise opportunity could be the ideal solution for someone to realise their potential and run their own business, while still having the support and recognition that an establish brand provides.
