WHY PARTY AMERICA?
Party Supply Industry
Take part in the 11 billion dollar a year party supply industry where competition is low compared to other industries. Our business is driven by a universal love of parties and entertaining; disposable products; strong and dramatic seasonal growth (witness the strength of Halloween and the growing demand for luau and Mardi Gras) and the ongoing special events in our lives such as birthdays, weddings and showers.
Consistent Management Team
The Party America management team has been in place since 1996.
Successful Business Model
The Party America business model has had a stunning record of success and our financials rival all of our competitors. Our company enjoys high margins based on economies of scale and a successful import program.
Customer relationship skills, clean, well-merchandised stores, a national presence and brand name recognition all combine to ensure customer loyalty.
Philosophy And Culture
Although we are in the party supply business, we are really in the "people" business. Our success depends on the quality of our relationships with our customers, vendors, employees, as well as the communities in which we conduct our business.
Party America is listed with the SBA Registry whose franchisees enjoy the benefits of a streamlined review process for SBA loan applications.
Location matters and our conservative development strategy seeks "A" locations only. Party America stores are located in power centers with high-traffic counts and specific demographic requirements.
Construction And Design
Party America stores are colorful, fun, clean and inviting, and designed for a superior shopping experience. Our proven store designs can be customized to adapt to specific size requirements. We provide building specifications, letter of intent, as well as sourcing of our custom fixtures at our cost.
Our Retail Information System is a state - of - the - art software and hardware system used in all Party America stores. It collects and tracks sales, inventory, transaction information, payroll, cash reports and provides for efficient replenishment. It includes an ordering system, touch-screen panels and electronic scanning cash registers.

An expert corporate team supplies franchisees with detailed product placement diagrams and specific updated merchandising techniques.
