Business Description

Great Small Franchise - Forbes Top 10 under $150K

This home based business is primarily seasonal, selling ad spaces of varying sizes around the perimeter of our map to businesses. Our current coverage area runs from the Connecticut River from Walpole to down to the Massachusetts border out to Peterborough and Jaffery, NH however the franchise owns the right to all of Cheshire County and could include the Hillsboro area as well.

There is one printing of our map per year (65,000) with 2019 being its 13th year. The sales & renewals of advertising spaces takes place the latter half of March through May. Customer renewals average 75%. In late May and June map changes are drawn, new ads uploaded, web site updated, map proofing and printing all take place. Newly printed maps arrive approximately June 25th.

Additionally, the owner usually does a "Victory Lap" with new and special customers when the new maps arrive. Most often installing a new map rack for new customers.

While the printed map is our mainstay, the Discovery Map International home office keeps the brand current with technology through our individual & national web sites. These are used on computers, iPads and a Mobile Guide for smart phones. www.discoverymap.com All included as part of the printed map program.

The remaining 8 months of the year require only monitoring of emails & phone calls, and a small amount of monthly billing all of which can be done from Anywhere USA. The majority of the business, short of sales, is accomplished electronically.

Some franchisees opt to undertake a 2nd or more franchises to make a full time career out of their businesses. They can either purchase an existing franchise or start a new one.

Discovery Map International, established in 1981, is a national franchise with currently 135 Franchised Markets across the country and growing. This quality, fun to use map is widely recognized and well received by all.

In 2015 Forbes named Discovery Map International one of the top 10 franchises to buy with an initial investment under $150,000.

Our maps are well received throughout our coverage area. I am always honest and friendly with all customers and prospects, never pushy. A friend made one year many times will turn into a customer a following year. I prefer to do my new sales and renewals face to face. We provide outstanding customer service with a 75% renewal rate.

13 Years of proven track record and years of refining internal business systems to ease sales and production. There are many other map products promoted in the area but no real competition. The business is in great shape with a bright future, invaluable "Goodwill" and minimal risk for a new owner.
