Buddy's Home Furnishings
What does a Buddy's Home Furnishings Franchise Cost?
Buddy’s Home Furnishings offers customers affordable payments on home necessities including name-brand furniture, electronics, appliances, and home accessories. The company is one of the fastest-growing rent-to-own franchises in America and sits prominently in the $11.1 billion rent-to-own industry.**
What is Rent-to-Own?
Rent-to-own (RTO) is an essential and recession-resistant industry offering customers affordable payments on everyday necessities, which is why RTO annual revenue has steadily increased for decades despite good and bad economies.
The rent-to-own industry gained traction in the 1970s in response to customer demand for acquiring household products without incurring debt or jeopardizing the family’s credit. RTO customers continue to come from all walks of life and share the common desire to have durable goods in their homes without the long-term financial obligations associated with credit sales.
The cornerstone of RTO, and a point of differentiation from traditional retail, is there is no interest, no credit check and customers can return the merchandise at any time for any reason without penalty. This model has become a mainstream hallmark of consumerism spanning industries from car sharing services, to clothing rental subscriptions, technology trade-in programs and so much more.
According to the 2021 Association of Progressive Rental Organizations (APRO) Annual Industry Health Survey, the RTO industry served an estimated total of 5.27 million households in 2020—approximately 1 of every 23 American households rented products from a traditional brick-and-mortar RTO store.
