Is a company the best when it excels over all others? When it is larger and bigger than the competitors? When it announces that it is officially the best? Well, Webster says all of those options work.
But at Rhea Lana’s we prefer to listen to our consignors, our owners, and our shoppers to gauge how good we are. We want to say a huge THANK YOU to our consignors, our owners, and our shoppers who continue to vote us the best.
Congratulations to Ashley Shaver Noland for her recognition in Franchise Business Review’s Top 200 Franchises Guide. Ashley was the very first Rhea Lana’s franchise owner. As the owner of both the Northwest Arkansas and Fayetteville, Arkansas events, she continues to prove what a great entrepreneurial gig a Rhea Lana’s franchise is. Ashley’s Northwest Arkansas event is also a Top 10 Nationally Ranked Franchise.
With owners like Ashley, it’s easy to see why Rhea Lana’s has a 9-year streak named one of Franchise Business Review’s Top 50 Franchises. Most recently awarded this in 2019, we’re hoping for one more consecutive award so that we can make the hall of fame in 2020.
But these awards aren’t just for companies like ours. These awards consider franchises around the world that offer all kinds of products and services.
For 2019, in the overall franchise category, Rhea Lana’s is ranked #22, four spots ahead of Orange Theory fitness, a beloved fitness franchise to put it in perspective. Not to brag, but we’re also thankful that our primary competitor ranks #142 in this list. Thank you again to all of our loyal consignors and customers who recognize and respect the quality and care at our events!
If you’re an entrepreneur at heart looking for a new primary business or side hustle, you’ll be happy to know that a Rhea Lana’s Franchise has been named #9 in the Top Low-Cost Franchises for 2019. It doesn’t cost a lot to begin, but what you gain is immense!
Franchise Gator named Rhea Lana’s a Top 100 Franchise for 2019. Consignment Mommies has ranked four Rhea Lana’s individual franchises in the Top 10 Nationally Ranked Best Consignment Sale. Congratulations to the communities of Conway, Arkansas; Jonesboro, Arkansas; Northwest Arkansas; and Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. Whether you’re the franchise owner or the consignors and shoppers, you’re living in the right place to hit the jackpot for kids’ value.
These awards haven’t come easy. The owners of our 100 franchises around the country have heart, drive, and determination. Rhea Lana’s consignors are dedicated to the mission of helping other families in their communities…and pocketing that twice a year consignor paycheck! Our customers took a chance and have learned to trust us to provide the quality and price for their family’s needs. We thank you!
Now we welcome two new owners into our fold. We’re happy to announce that Rhea Lana’s of The Lake and Cook Region will now serve the larger Chicago area with new owner, Diana Cavaliere. And Emily Darras who will now be serving Rhea Lana’s of Chattanooga as the new owner. Ladies, welcome to a tribe of hardworking entrepreneurs who continue to be recognized for our excellent brand and service.
