The AMain Hobbies story begins in Chico, California. Kendall and Kelly Bennett began with an online RC hobby shop in 2004. The business has now grown into a 50,000 square foot building that holds the distribution center and offices, and located a mile from the main business, is our retail store and our Silver Dollar RC Raceway.
As we continue to grow to meet the needs of hobby enthusiasts and brand fans, our Franchise Owners keep pace by providing unparalleled customer service, achieving higher than industry average inventory turns and retail sales per square foot. In our stores and through our e-commerce site, we are constantly testing new products and technologies to increase sales. We grow through innovation, and our Franchise Owners are empowered to explore new product ideas and make independent buying decisions. In turn, we provide them with business intelligence and national sales data to help them optimize their inventory strategies.
We have become the foremost resource and destination those who want to help friends and family share in the fun. We embrace, support, and maximize the strengths and diversity of each Franchise Owner.
