Retailer of Premium, Personally Fitted Arch Supports Announces Milestone Opening in Nashua, N.H., Alongside Plans for Additional Brick and Mortar Locations in New Geographies Across the Nation
Franchising.com – June 7, 2022 – The Good Feet Store, manufacturer and retailer of premium, personally fitted arch supports for every foot and lifestyle, today announced the opening of its 200th location in partnership with one of its veteran franchisees, Bridget Kelley. Located at 219 Daniel Webster Hwy Suite C1 in Nashua, N.H., the new store marks a celebratory milestone as the health and wellness brand and franchise gears up to largely increase its national retail footprint over the next five years.
"Coming out of the pandemic, The Good Feet Store is on track to deliver one of our biggest years ever in terms of growth, sales and expansion, and our business is well-positioned for the future," said Richard Moore, CEO of The Good Feet Store.
"As a category creator and leader, we have an opportunity to change the lives of people all over the world," added Moore. "Supporting our franchisees, like the successful Bridget Kelley who's largely helped shape Good Feet in New England, is key as they play a crucial role in helping us activate this vision. They don't just believe in our business model, they have a passion for helping others live happier, healthier lives. Our like-minded partners are committed to improving the quality of people's lives, two feet at a time."
Kelley is a long-standing franchisee with more than two decades of industry experience. She currently oversees Good Feet Store locations across the Boston, MA, Rochester, NY, Albany, NY, Indianapolis, IN, Buffalo, NY, and Fort Myers, FL markets. By the end of this year, Kelley will have seven locations throughout her regions, having created 30 jobs. By the end of the upcoming expansion, Kelley expects to bring another 20 jobs to her regions.
Kelley adds, "My introduction to The Good Feet Store was experiencing firsthand its life-changing impact on my sister—who after years of growing up and living with chronic foot pain caused by her scoliosis was suddenly pain-free, thanks to her personally fitted arch supports. Witnessing my sister's turnaround and improved quality of life inspired my own exploration into The Good Feet Store's business and franchise model, as I wanted to help others like her. From my first location in Buffalo, NY in 2001, to opening our newest doors in Nashua, N.H., with more locations to come, this tenured partnership not only keeps fueling my business growth, it supports my honored role in bringing a health and wellness solution that I believe in to the diverse population and charming residents of New England."
