Kazoo & Company Toys Franchising Its Educational, Non-Violent "Creative Playthings" Ethic with Help of Franchise Growth Systems

Kazoo & Company Toys is an award-winning, community-involved toy store that offers educational, non-violent toys, games, puzzles and more to children, birth to 12 years old.

Mesa, AZ, June 12, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Bucking the tide of violent and dangerous games and toys with those that “play with your imagination” instead, Kazoo & Company have been enhancing the lives of kids, parents, and kids at heart since 1980. They are now partnering with Franchise Growth Systems to bring that ethic to the greater marketplace.

Diana Nelson acquired the company in 1998, and has since been steadily building its reputation as a conscientious pillar of the community, offering toys - or “creative playthings” as she might say - that stimulate growth and positivity, instead of destruction. She quickly set the company on a progressive track, which included community involvement, such as homeless children’s toy and book donations, military and special discounts, and awards from local business organizations.

Her establishment of KazooToys.com in 1999, the Good Toy Group non-profit co-op in 2000, and the opening of the first licensed (and highly successful) location at Denver International Airport in 2008, have all helped solidify Kazoo & Company’s reputation as a cornerstone of the Denver community.

Now, she’s taking it to the next level, by franchising her company in earnest, with her sights set on bringing the special toy shopping experience and enjoyment she has engendered to the rest of America, and perhaps beyond. Franchise Growth Systems is a franchise marketing and sales company which is steering the unique toy company toward greater success, with Master Franchising/Regional Development programs that mean exponential growth in the coming years.

The Master Franchise Opportunity:

With a Master Franchise agreement, the franchisee has the rights to a large defined geographic area for the Kazoo and Company Toys brand. He/she can open franchises at a much reduced franchise fee and royalty, and receives a part of the royalty and franchise fee paid by each of his/her franchisees.

Master Franchises are rare; most franchisors do not offer them, and when they are available, they usually sell quickly. This type of franchise offers a lucrative income, low initial investment relative to the value, and flexibility.

Says Ms. Nelson, “It is my highest personal goal to franchise Kazoo & Company Toys,” and with Franchise Growth Systems at the helm, her dream looks to be well within realization.

Kazoo & Company’s list of accolades includes:

· Listed in the INC 5000 for the past 3 years running as one of the fastest growing privately-owned businesses
· Voted #1 Internet toy site by Playthings magazine in 2006
· 2011 Award for Excellence in Customer Satisfaction from "Talk of the Town"
· 2011 CEBA – Colorado Ethics in Business Award Winner
· Top 5 Specialty Retail Toy Stores in North America - Toy Industry Association Award 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008
· Finalist in the Consumer Business category of the 2010 Top Company awards program hosted by ColoradoBiz
