Our Story

The Buyback Bros started in the fall of 2008 at Georgetown University. Students increasingly found it difficult to get a fair price for their used books. The campus bookstore had a reputation for lowballing students and there wasn’t any competition near campus. Realizing the need for a fair and convenient alternative, we decided to take matters into our own hands. Since its inception, the Buyback Bros has grown rapidly. What started as a single school operation has expanded to dozens of universities across the country using the same model that has been so effective at Georgetown. The Buyback Bros family is operated by student owned franchises that are handed down to the next class at each university. The focus remains the same, if we can make your textbook-selling experience a little more convenient and get you more cash for your books, then that’s what we aim to do.
