Major Shipping Franchise Absentee Owner In Seattle For Sale

Seattle, Washington, US
Asking Price:
$120,000 Furniture / Fixtures included
Sales Revenue:
Cash Flow:

Major shipping and business Center franchise for sale. Established and turnkey loyal customer base already built up for you. The owner has several franchise stores and due to health concerns can no longer operate multiple stores. So, this store has been absentee operated. Even that being said it is still making a strong profit. But with owner-operator in place labor costs would be less, upselling at the counter would increase and customer service would be all smiles probably the cash flow would increase greatly maybe even a six-figure net.

This business has been at this location for more than 11 years so it is very much a fixture in this busy neighborhood. Located on a high traffic street with good visibility. This is a major name in the shipping and mailbox franchise world, so all the training and ongoing support are in place for you. There is always help just a phone call or email away. Plus being part of a major franchise you get your marketing and advertising is taken care of. The reality is most nonfranchise copycat shipping and mailbox businesses don’t get anywhere near the marketing or advertising done so they in return do nowhere near the sales volume.

This is quite more than just a shipping store, other money making services offered include mailbox rentals, notary services, printing services anywhere from business cards to menus to full big banners etc.. Passport photos, document shredding, custom packing even graphic design and more. It is interesting to note that many if not most of these services offered you don’t even do, you broker them out to a third party. For example, the printing services you just broker the print services to a print shop. In essence, you just take the order from your customer and pass it along to the print shop. It’s win, win as the customer gets one-stop shopping, the printshop is happy for the additional work and of course, you look good to you customer and you get a piece of the $$$ payment.

A neat advantage to this type of business is all these types of services only cost pennies to offer but show big dollars in the profits. Another strong plus is these services are Not labor intensive at all. So easy on your body. Usually, only one or two employees and regular work hours 9-5 type stuff so evenings off. So easy on your mind and body. Not many small businesses can say that. This is a very clean business no messy perishable inventory to maintain and only minutes to prep for opening and closing.

So if you’re looking for a good solid business in a high traffic area that is turnkey with great upside potential on top of already strong profits… did I mention an industry leader in the franchise shipping world? Well, none the less it’s all here. Seller nets about $60K annually with very limited involvement The asking price is also very reasonable and worth checking out.
