CD Warehouse Franchise

Retailer specializing in buying, selling and trading used compact discs

Mark Kane began selling compact discs at a Texas flea market in 1992. The $3,000 he made that first weekend inspired Kane to expand his concept into the CD Warehouse retail chain. From that initial flea market booth, the company has opened locations throughout the U.S. as well as in Canada, England, France, Guatemala and Venezuela.
