The UPS Store Brand is a globally respected market leader. There is no doubt that franchisees will immediately enjoy public trust and the established familiarity of a nationally recognized brand, but do the pros of owning The UPS Store franchise outweight one very important and major con? You be the judge...
- The most advanced technology - The UPS Store franchising network utilizes one of the most innovative and highly developed digital information systems in the world. This technology enables UPS franchisees to deliver more than 13 million documents, pieces of mail and packages every day. The cost for this sustained development is reportedly in excess of $1 billion annually and comes with an unequaled tracking and distribution capability.
- Number 1 in its category - Voted the #1 franchise in its category for 19 consecutive years by Entrepreneur Magazine's Franchise 500.
- Questionable Profitability – According to a very reliable source it takes “about $365,000 in annual gross sales” to produce a modest “$35,000/yr income for the owner” and “about 60% of all US stores do not break even.” In other words, you will not see a nickel in profit until your UPS Store does over $30,000 in monthly sales consecutively every month and you have to hope you are one of the 40% of franchisees that see any profits at all.
We suggest you do thourough research before investing in The UPS Store franchise. Ask lots of questions and be sure the location you are choosing has the capability of generating enough business to be able to feed your family.
