The 4 top reasons why almost everyone I know ultimately decided to open their own The UPS Store:
1 It is not a food business (no health dept. reps breathing down your neck, or rats to get rid of, etc)
2 You only need 2 to 4 employees (which is much easier to deal with than 43 minimum-wage teenagers)
3 Most stores are open 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM, shorter hours on Saturday, closed Sundays (no midnight phone calls from the drive-through clerk because you ran out of napkins), and last, but certainly not least,
4 The UPS in the brand name (a trusted name, need I say more?)
If all four of these reasons resonate with you, keep reading. If not, this may not be the business for you (not a slam-dunk, but a decent indicator).
Next, the two most popular questions I get are: Where can I get a store? , and
How much will I make?
The answer to both of these is it depends! The where... answer depends on things like:
+ Where you live
+ How close you want to be to your store
+ Where other stores are already located (BTW, I am fairly conservative about where I will allow you to place a store. I don't want stores too close and I want The UPS Store to be the store of choice in our area, so I tend to lean toward locations that have elbow-room and are under-served), and
+ When you decide to open your store (There are 86 stores in MD and DC, 1 more are under contract, and there are plans for 24 more by 2015. Obviously, the sooner you decide, the more location choices you have)
The how much... answer depends primarily on two things location and you! We've addressed the location part above, so that leaves us with just the YOU part of the answer.
