How franchising can give back in a big way, with Shannon Wilburn of Just Between Friends
Play • 50 min

How does a small consignment sale in somebody’s home that brings in around $2,000 evolve into a vast franchise network that recently surpassed $28m in charitable donations? This is the journey of Shannon Wilburn and Just Between Friends; the retail events franchise that has expanded across the U.S. into a collaborative family of empathetic franchisees. 

In this episode, we speak with Shannon about how she grew the brand from a home-based sale to a 160-plus network of franchisees, as well as the key milestones and achievements that have defined this benevolent brand.
