American Freight Grows In Chicago Market With New Multi-Unit Agreement
Seasoned multi-brand operator Mohamad Atieh just signed on to become a franchisee with American Freight, one of the leading furniture, mattress, and appliance retailers in the country. Atieh is set to open three locations in the Chicago area. So far this year, American Freight has awarded 5 franchises and opened 16 new company stores, bringing the company’s nationwide footprint to more than 360 stores across 40 states.
American Freight has been a brand on the grow since adding and rebranding nearly 130 former Sears Outlets and more than 30 former FFO Home locations in 2020. The rebrand greatly expanded the company’s number of locations and enhanced its product assortment to include furniture, mattresses, and appliances.
“We launched our franchise model late last year, and the overwhelming response and interest we’ve seen since then is very encouraging for the future of franchising with American Freight,” said Will Powell, CEO and President of American Freight.
Atieh is a successful multi-unit operator and his portfolio includes such brands as Sprint, 7-Eleven, and Seafood Junction. He’s excited to team up with American Freight and believes the brand is well-suited for multi-unit operators. He and his wife are relocating to Chicago in order to give him more oversight on his newest franchise venture.
“I first experienced American Freight as a customer, and it obviously resonated with me,” said Atieh. “From a customer point of view, I was impressed with the customer service, product assortment, fair pricing, and delivery turnaround time. I also have a keen eye for businesses conducive to multi-unit franchising, so American Freight piqued my interest in that regard as well.”
“We’re excited to partner with Atieh to serve more communities across Chicago, a market that isn’t yet saturated with existing stores,” said Jon Phillips, Vice President of Business Development at American Freight. “Atieh’s deep understanding of multi-unit operations and customer service makes him a natural fit for our growing franchise program.”
American Freight delivers consumers a one-stop-shop for quality furniture, mattresses and appliances at everyday low prices in more than 360 locations in 40 states and Puerto Rico.
