The Copper Closet is currently the most affordable boutique franchise opportunity in the industry. No surprises, no unnecessary up-charges, and the option to pay as you go!

Our mission is to provide women with an affordable franchise option so that we can encourage more women to be self-sufficient business owners. We attribute our success with the fact that our start-up cost is very low so that we have not incurred debt on our journey of opening 13 stores in 3 years with little to no revolving debt. We're not afraid to share other franchise costs because we don't have anything to fear. We know what we have to offer, and our cost is at a fraction of theirs.
