Business Overview:

Major Shipping & business center franchise for sale. Established and turnkey loyal customer base already built up.

This owner has several franchise stores and due to health concerns can no longer operate multiple stores. So this store has pretty much been an absentee operated business but even in spite of absentee owner the sales of this business have gone up every year. Currently very good sales and the potential for great sales with an owner-operator.

This business has been at this location for over 10 years. Easy business to learn and operate, is a major player in the shipping franchise industry so all the training is provided before you take over.

Safety nets/training are in place after you take over as well there is always someone to call or reach out to when the need arises. A winning business plan is already in place for you. It’s nice to know your back is covered and have your questions and concerns answered. With the franchise, you’re part of a team.

This is quite more than just a shipping store, other services offered include mailbox rentals, notary services, printing services anywhere from business cards to menus to banners etc.. Passport photos, document shredding, custom packing even graphic design and more.

A neat advantage is all these types of services only cost pennies to offer but show dollar profit margins in return. Another neat advantage is these services are not labor intensive at all. So very easy on your back and body. Nine to five type hours type hours so evenings off and just a few hours on Saturday so a major portion of the weekend you get off too.

That makes for more family time or just a higher quality of life. This kind of business also has low labor costs. A husband and wife team could eliminate labor costs altogether. Most small businesses do not offer this kind of benefit. It is a clean business meaning no perishable inventory to order or maintain, no major clean up at the end of the business day, very little prep time when opening each day.

How many small businesses can offer all this? If you are looking for a franchise business to buy that is an industry leader, has an established location with a customer base already built up then this one is a must see. Oh, I almost forgot the location of this business is in high traffic, well to do, very desirable part of Seattle. I can’t forget to mention that it’s too important. Contact us for more information.

Property Features and Assets:

Monthly lease with the triple net is $4,567. Lots of life left on the lease, current lease expires 2024. Currently absentee owner, 2 fulltime employees operating the business. 1500 Square feet, bright, clean and good signage and visibility. Has 254 mailboxes of which 165 are occupied. The only copier is leased but all other equipment is owned and included in the sale. Plenty of street parking available.

Market Competition and Expansion:

This is a big name in the shipping and business center world no similar exact competition close by. Pretty much everybody is familiar with the name. One definite way to increase sales is for a new owner to be owner-operator so the labor costs would be reduced. Also if owner-operator is standing behind the counter everyday CUSTOMER SERVICE and UP SELLING at the front counter would probably see a significant increase. It should be noted that this business has seen significant growth in sales every year for the past 3 years. This store is also recently remodeled so new owner does not have to worry about any remodeling for many years. This is a prime location in Seattle and this neighborhood is in a growth spurt so sales should continue to rise.

Reason for Selling:

Health concerns

Additional Details:

  • The property is leased.
  • The owner is not willing to train/assist the new owner.
