HobbyTown Advantage

Training and Support

Our real estate partners have served the HobbyTown franchise for more than 25 years.

They will assist and lead you through site selection, lease negotiation and the franchise buildout process for new store location and existing store relocation. The track record of our partner boasts remarkable success in obtaining below market lease rates, buildout funding and favorable lease commitments.

New HobbyTown franchisees, paired with a well-established store operator, learn the ropes from an experienced mentor so you can focus on owning your own business. This onsite training in the mentoring store precedes a week of HobbyUniversity training at our corporate facility in Lincoln, NE. Our field team will provide three weeks of on-site training and store setup at your location concluding with your Grand Opening.
