Hi there! We are OutGROW OutPLAY Kitchener Franchise Owners Sasha, Amy and Ben and we are really looking forward to meeting you at our consignment sale event. We discovered OutGROW OutPLAY through friends, who were starting the Mississauga franchise. Investigating the opportunity further and working the Mississauga’s Inaugural Show, we saw the potential benefits of OutGROW OutPLAY in the Kitchener-Waterloo region. Learning about how the show worked and seeing how it was unlike anything currently in the marketplace had us both hooked. We also saw that many people, families, groups and organizations would benefit from this sale being in Kitchener-Waterloo. There is a substantial opportunity for charities and organizations to benefit from their participation in the sale and it’s a WIN-WIN-WIN for everyone involved. WE LIKE THAT A LOT! Sasha - I grew up playing minor hockey in the Kitchener Minor hockey system and continue to play hockey locally (GMP Outlaws) I was a Big Brother, part of the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Waterloo Region and I recently joined the committee for Donna’s Kids, a division of Kitchener Minor Hockey that allows underprivileged kids to play hockey. When I’m not out playing hockey, or skiing or mountain biking, I am building a new company called Capacity Trade Exchange of Canada. Amy - I’m thrilled to be taking part in this new adventure with Sasha and my son Ben, who is thirteen. After working the Mississauga Sale, I can honestly say it was so civilized and was really well run and unlike anything I had experienced in my time of when my son was a baby. I have a great love for travel, and have been so fortunate to have seen and done some pretty incredible things during my life through travel. A time, I will never forget and the friends I made along the way. My son and I now reside in a small town with a ton of spirit, which we completely love. There is so much community involvement in many of the events hosted in our area. I currently work full time in a Training and Education department, for a really great company. I enjoy the great outdoors along with skiing, kayaking, running, going to the gym and just being active. Ben plays the piano, guitar, loves school - First Class Honours (proud mom – toot toot), plays soccer, skis, loves to paddleboard and is truly a fish in the water. Ben is also very excited to be part of OutGROW OutPlay, after all, toys are his specialty! We hope that you are as excited about OutGROW OutPLAY as we are! We look forward to meeting you and helping you not only make money, but save money too! Being Owners of an OutGrow OutPlay franchise is a whole new experience for us. We have met so many wonderful volunteers and families that have come out to support our new business. We love it when the kids come in and want to help. We love their excitement! So, we have them handing out bags or bagging people’s purchases, and they love it. It is also so satisfying to see the smile on people’s faces with the amount of money they have saved. We truly enjoy reaching out to our community and helping our local charity groups. It feels so great to be a difference maker in our community and OutGrow OutPlay has given us to opportunity to do just that!!!
