Lemstone Christian Stores
We're America's only Christian retail franchise.
For 21 years, we have been helping people realize their dreams. We hope this site will help you better evaluate our franchise opportunities and your potential for success as a Lemstone franchise owner.
Before you click through our site—and find the information you need to make a decision about your next step—I'd like to mention several key ingredients of a successful applicant for one of our franchises.
Passion for Ministry.
Since 1982, Lemstone has been helping people succeed as business owners. But Lemstone franchise owners seek something that's more than merely a business opportunity. They seek something unique that gives them the opportunity to use their time, talent, and treasure in a way that glorifies Jesus Christ in a business that is also a ministry.
For us—it's both/and—both a ministry and a business.
If that concept seems foreign to you, then purchasing a Lemstone franchise may not be a good fit. Our most successful franchisees are motivated by a passion to make a difference in this world through retailing products and books and music that impact people spiritually.
Portfolio for Success.
It will come as no surprise to you that our financial requirements for purchase a franchise are designed for your success. It takes money to purchase a franchise—and it takes liquidity to make it cash flow as you build your business. We want our franchises to succeed—and those that do, always, have the proper financial requirements up front. So, as you click through the site, look at our Personal Financial Qualifications, Estimated Investment, and Capitalization Structure sections—and please note: we never compromise on our financial qualifications when evaluating a potential franchise owner. We want you to succeed!
Your commitment to being actively involved in the business operation is critical. Most of our franchise owners have at least one full-time owner/manager working the business.
When this is not possible, we recommend a minimum owner in-store involvement of approximately 25 hours per week. Ours is a "people business" and relationships really make the difference. Your "hands on" commitment is a key ingredient to your leadership of the store's ministry and market impact.
If after thoroughly reading the content on this site, you feel that you and your market qualify for one of our franchises, we'd love to take the next step with you. That involves completing our online, nonbinding Confidential Get-Acquainted Form.
Owning a Lemstone franchise is exciting and rewarding.
I like to say that Lemstone is more of a lifestyle—a way of relating with people, serving them, and meeting their needs. It is much more than simply a business opportunity or another portfolio investment. I think you will understand this more and more as you pursue the possibility of having your own Lemstone franchise.
