Liberty Tax is income tax preparation at its best: friendly, accurate, and with a money back guarantee.
Founded in 1997 by CEO & tax industry expert John Hewitt, Liberty Tax is the fastest-growing tax preparation franchise ever. Liberty Tax has become an industry leader with a network of over 30,000 tax preparers and almost 16 million individual tax returns prepared. In just 16 years, Liberty Tax has grown to more than 4,500 offices operating in the U.S. and Canada.
What makes Liberty Tax unique? We highly support our franchisees and firmly stand by our mission statement. Known for our Liberty wavers, roadside parties, and fun company culture, Liberty Tax has been recognized as raising the bar for all franchises, not just personal income tax-based businesses.
Liberty Tax has been ranked as a top franchise opportunity by Entrepreneur magazine for 4 consecutive years and a top tax firm by Accounting Today in 2010 and 2011. We have been awarded a top spot among franchises by magazines such as Black Enterprise, Poder/Hispanic Enterprise, and Military Times Edge.
Liberty Tax went public in 2012 and is traded on the NASDAQ stock exchange (TAX). The company is headquartered in Virginia Beach, VA.
Established wholesale bagel business bakes fresh overnight and delivers to customers in early am. We operate 7 days/wk and are closed only for major holidays. The co. is known locally for its gourmet product line.
The co. was established in 1996 when bagels became broadly popular in most areas of the country. At that time, there were twelve bagel businesses in the area, some locally-owned, some nationally-franchised. It was a difficult time as competition slowly parsed out various of our competitors. All eventually went out of business except for two of the franchised chains that eventually emerged from bankruptcy and retain a local presence today. These cos. import frozen bagels for their retail outlets and do not substantively participate in the wholesale market. Of the original twelve, our company is thus the ONLY surviving from-scratch bagel operation in southern AZ.
This success was due largely to an early decision to produce a high-end product (with a little perseverance mixed in). We are widely recognized for the quality of our bagels, which weigh-in at 5 ozs each and for which only the highest quality ingredients are used. Most new accounts these days are by word-of-mouth.
2012 sales were $396k and the owner's take-away for the past few years has been in the $100k area. (For context, note that AZ is a low-wage state and ranks as one of the lowest cost of living areas of the country.)
