HobbyTown Advantage

We’ve successfully franchised in the hobby and specialty toy industries since 1985, so we know a thing or two about how to make free time awesome.

HobbyTown franchise owners come from all walks of life and our network of franchisees represent a wide spectrum of professional, retail and hobby experience. It’s truly a franchise in a box, no assembly required. Whether you’re a veteran, an engineer or just love hobbies and toys, our franchise system is built to support your success.

New to franchising? No problem. Most of our HobbyTown franchise store owners don’t have retail, business ownership or startup experience. Our comprehensive A–Z store opening process simplifies the complexities of opening your store and will fuel your entrepreneurial spirit.

HobbyTown History

Our experienced team provides you with ongoing support and training in all aspects of business operations tailored to the specific needs of your franchise and location. We strive to build upon your personal strengths and help reinforce areas where you may need any additional support.

Over the years we’ve built strategic alliances with industry leaders in supply chain, website development, software engineering and marketing and advertising to help facilitate our continual growth and development. These relationships make for a full omni-channel retailing solution.

HobbyTown partners exclusively with RadioShack in the hobby industry to offer RadioShack Express merchandise centers within HobbyTown franchise stores. Participating stores listed on radioshack.com as authorized retailers benefit from additional sales and new customer acquisition opportunities.
