I depends on where you are; what the competition is like; what your community needs; whether it is a franchise or not; how much it will cost you to do what you want to do; whether you are buying a going business or doing a start-up; and what does "profitable" mean to you? The ones I have seen have not been incredibly profitable, when you compare what the Owner has put into the business, and the Return on Investment he/she has received in return; that is to say, there are other businesses that have a better Return, than the packing and shipping businesses I have personally seen. But then, I have not seen them all!
