Black Supplier of Mannequins Makes Millions

Twenty years ago, when Judi Henderson-Townsend began selling mannequins, she was not planning to turn her side hustle into a full-time undertaking. She was compelled to do so after discovering the only mannequin supplier in her city was going out of business. So, she purchased his inventory and opened Mannequin Madness, a company that has grown into a global enterprise that generates millions of dollars in sales each year.

From her Oakland California factory, Henderson-Townsend rents and recycles mannequins. Her notoriety as the “Mannequin Queen” reflects not only her entrepreneurial success, but the
impact of her company’s recycling focus on the industry and environment.
