One of the hottest new franchise concepts has the business community agog. “The Scotch Boutique” specializes exclusively in Scotch tape. “We think it’s a growing niche market. We do one thing, but we do it very well.”, Scotch Boutique employee Jenny told us. The most popular size scotch tape roll is the thirty-six footer, but the seventy-two footer affords extra savings. The Scotch tape store owner and originator of the concept, Walker said, “Yeah, you know, when you’re working with a brand new, fresh idea, it’s always a little harder. You know, um, most people are used to buying their – their tape when they go to the supermarket or drug store, you know. What we’ve got to do is turn their thinking around so they make a special trip down here to the Scotch Boutique when they want, uh, tape”. In an unexpected and exciting announcement, Walker told us that the Scotch Boutique would also be offering copies for nine cents.
