Trader Joes Franchise Opportunities


Trader Joes offers unique and interesting items and does not carry a lot of branded names.

If you want to engage in a selling franchise that offers basics that are interesting and out of the box then the Trade Joe's franchise is for you.

Trade Joes is the ideal product line that sells unique products that are originals and usually will not be sold again. This is what makes Trader Joe's the unique shopping adventure for any interested shopper. The store offers all their products at very low and affordable prices that they consider their stock as 'always on sale'. Because of their unique stock and varying availability of items, they have no distinct item prices and with this their stock prices varies per location of establishment. At times they even discontinue the selling of their products, mostly because they are either seasonal or are not strong sellers. Trader Joes wants to make sure that the customers are able to benefit from the low prices of all of their items.

Trader Joes is a privately held company and does not franchise or publicly trade. It started in the 1950's and was originally known as Pronto Markets and in '67 the name was changed to Trader Joes. From then on the company has continued to not only provide unique products for their customers but also good food and beverages. They purchase their goods directly from the suppliers and change their suppliers from time to time in order to give their customers a wide variety of products which often makes their stocks very seasonal as you cannot always find the same item in their stores regularly.

We support three colleges a large medical and legal community, drawing employees from Ala. Adairsville, Calhoun, Rockmart, Cedartown, and many more. If Trader Joes were to ever grace our town with a new location, it would not be able to keep the shelves stocked. Hopefully Waiting, BrettB.

    Woodhaven Michigan. Ideal spot plenty of local relief from local government. Also close to I 75. So the chance of Ohio traffic is great. There is currently a Kmart going out of business that I'm sure the city would offer you a great business real on for tax purposes. Also there are tons of businesses around. Just a thought. I have discussed with plenty and all feel if you had a location in this area you wouldn't be sorry. Have a great holiday.

    We think that Trader Joe's would do very well in Lynchburg, VA. My wife and I have experience that would do well in running this operation. I have owned and run a business for over twenty years. Lynchburg, VA is a growing City, and with Liberty University, a growing Christian University, the largest Christian University in the world, we have a growing and diverse population that would love a Trader Joe's. I hope you would consider Lynchburg, VA

    I am interested in a TJ Franchise in Kalamazoo, Michigan (USA) area. We have one health food store here, which is awesome considering we could have none. However, their selection is limited and they do not have the buying power of a TJ franchise so you can guess that the prices are pretty steep for most of the merchandise. :-( The major organization (PFizer, Stryker, Western Michigan University, Bronson Hospital, Borgess Hospital, etc) are on a health kick so may employees and citizens are looking for healthier choices which is forcing Walmart, Meijer and the other non-traditional grocery store chains to change, but they are no TJ's. I know a TJ's in the Kazoo area would be a huge success.

    Trader Joe's would excel in the McAllen, Texas area. We are close to the Mexico border and our friends from Mexico love organics and there is a high demand for specialty items like the ones Trader Joe's carries. We have only HEB and we would like other avenues for our groceries. Simply because 99 percent of valley residents would prefer a more competitive grocer chains other than the one mentioned before. We have the highest grossing apparel department in the nation-Dillards! Please consider a store in McAllen!!

We have a huge Military base here that is the states biggest employer and we also get thousands of families that rotate in and out of the base that have lived all over and are familiar with the brand and they love it. we also have 2 state universities near by. the only thing that is remotely similar to TJ's in this entire state is Whole Foods and they can't hold a candle to all the products you sell in your stores. we got a TJ's in SLC a couple years ago and I know it has to be thriving, but one location for all of northern Utah isn't enough.

    How stupid are you people? Trader Joe's is in no way affiliated with this site. They are a private company and they do not franchise. You can't start a Trader Joe's. Seriously, if you know so little about a company and how it operates how can you possibly think that you have what it takes to run one of their stores? You can go to Trader Joe's actual website to learn more about them. C'mon. You people make the internet sad. And dumb.
