The nationwide movement to â€œFree Your Toesâ€ has reached yet another milestone. Flip Flop Shops, North Americaâ€™s leading flip flop and sandal retailer, recently announced that it has signed two franchise agreements with local entrepreneurs Jeff and Pam Burrus. The married couple will bring the growing brand to the Charlotte region with the first location slated to open this summer at Carolina Place Mall in Pineville, and the second planned to open in South Charlotte later in the year.
â€œNow, more than ever, is a great time to become a Flip Flop Shops franchisee. We are doing the right things, with the right people in the right markets,â€ said Brian Curin, the President (Size 10) of Flip Flop Shops. â€œWe are totally stoked to bring our unique lifestyle brand and â€˜Free Your Toesâ€™ state-of-mind to the Charlotte area where flip flops are part of the everyday scene.â€
Once reserved only for poolside or beachwear, flip flops have grown to become the â€œglobal youth uniform,â€ as well as accepted footwear for anyone ranging from surfers to high-level corporate executives. Flip Flop Shopsâ€™ mission is to provide the opportunity for anyone, in any climate, to â€œliveâ€¦work â€¦play with their toes exposedÂ®â€ while wearing the freedom of flip flops on their feet. The shops carry the hottest brands of flip flops and sandals â€“ such as REEF, Sanuk, Flojos, VANS, Havaianas, Olukai, Rainbow, Cobian and Oâ€™NEILL, among others â€“ and retail between $20 to over $100.
