Once Upon A Child

One thing in life is guaranteed: Kids outgrow their stuff!
Turn all that kids stuff into cash with a great franchise business concept! Once Upon A Child® was founded in 1985 and became a franchise in 1993. Our retail model is unique: we buy and sell gently-used and new kids clothing, shoes, toys, equipment and accessories. Our customers are smart moms and dads with kids who know they can get more for their money by cashing in on those outgrown clothes and toys.

With over 280 Once Upon A Child store locations in the United States and Canada, customers get the personal service of a local kids shop, with the brand names and competitive prices of a national chain.

Once Upon a Child offers entrepreneurs a very unique small business franchise opportunity. Based on a sound business model and the support of parent company, Winmark Corporation, buying a retail franchise has never been easier. Initial investment ranges from $242,300 - $373,200*.
