Scouting for Help
As a Scout & Molly’s owner, your staffing model is minimal. Normal operating hours are Monday – Saturday 10:00 – 6:00 pm and Sunday 1:00 – 5:00pm. To accommodate normal store hours, Franchisees will recruit one Style Scout Store Manager and 3-4 Style Scouts (Sales Associates). The Style Scouts are typically part time and can vary from location to location in the number of part time Style Scouts.
Clothing Boutiques in the US is a $25 billion industry with no dominant player in the industry. Boutiques are chic and people value the personalized service and attention they receive, the cozy ambiance and the unique merchandise that only a boutique can offer. Scout & Molly’s sell unique items rather than items which are mass marketed.
Spreading the Word
As a Scout and Molly’s franchisee, your investment comes with a results-focused marketing program that differentiates Scout and Molly’s from its competition and virtually all other franchise opportunities.
You will have a dedicated Marketing Team that will work diligently to design and help you tailor a marketing program for running your business.
Our team will create the following marketing programs to increase your clientele base:
- Direct mail pieces

New Scout & Molly’s Franchisees will start the process of opening their boutique by beginning with real estate search.
Scout & Molly’s has created a complete real estate program that will help guide franchisees through all aspects of the process from locating a site to build-out. The Scout & Molly’s Real Estate program will help franchisees during the site selection process with letter of intent, negotiating a lease, architectures, obtaining permits, general contractor, construction process, and FF&E (furniture, fixtures and equipment).
