Description of franchise system

THE ATHLETE’S FOOT has been a central force in shaping how people worldwide shop for athletic footwear. Athlete’s Foot was the very first athletic footwear company in the world to start franchising their brand. Over the last 4 decades, the company has been constantly recognized as the most authoritative athletic footwear franchise in the world.

Launching exciting new store systems, The Athlete's Foot is continually making the most successful athletic footwear franchise even stronger with state-of-the-art technology and designs that keeps the franchise in front of the competition and ensures the future growth of their vibrant Franchise Brand.

In 1971, in Pittsburgh, PA, David and Robert Lando started the very first The Athlete's Foot location. The Athlete's Foot was an enormous success! Their business grew so rapidly that in 1972 they quickly had to begin franchising The Athlete's Foot nationally and in 1978 went global in Adelaide, Australia.

NexCen Brands acquired The Athlete's Foot in 2006 and continues to propel the expansion of the franchise globally through its marketing & branding proficiency, supplier relationships, and international retail franchise management team. Today, with expansion to over 40 countries, The Athlete's Foot continues to beat the competition in the athletic shoe industry.
