Vegas Baby! Real Deals Convention 2016

That’s where we celebrated our 10th anniversary and $21 million in annual sales! We teamed up with World Market Center in Las Vegas to bring our franchisees to our annual convention.

2015 was the first year we had three franchise stores top $800,000 in annual sales, which we think is pretty dang impressive for a mom-and-pop retailer that’s only open three days a week! This last year also saw the addition of RD Boutique, a decision we couldn’t have been more happy with!

This year’s theme was “Heart of Real Deals,” emphasizing how each of our owners is at the heart of our success. I mean, let’s be honest here, there is no franchisor without the franchisee! Many of the best advertising events each year come from the creative minds of our franchisees and many of our best vendors come from tips from excited owners dying to get their hands on great stuff. Lucky for us (and you guys!) our franchisees are our best asset to the Real Deals team!

While we’re already such a close family, our for 2016 is to become even closer.. As the African proverb says, ‘If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.’”
