The UPS Store Centers are retail service businesses which offer mailbox/parcel receiving, packaging and shipping/freight services through various carriers and provide a wide range of other authorized products and services, including notary, printing, copying, fingerprinting, office supplies and a variety of additional business services. Centers are targeted to the needs of businesses of all size, small office/home office workers and busy consumers who are looking for time saving services. Previously franchises for Centers were granted under the "Mail Boxes Etc." trademark but, starting in 2003 re-branding of the entire domestic system under The UPS Store name began. UPS is the parent entity. Every year all the major shipping carriers usually increase their shipping rates 4-6%, what this means to a UPS Store franchisee is increased predictable revenue along with year-after-year increased steady profit. This business fared very well during the great recession and did fantastic during the pandemic as an essential business, never needing to shut down. This business is also benefiting very nicely with recent new developments being built nearby. Yearly increased customer counts and sales remain constant, the business hosts a variety of clientele, including very high-end due to the proximity to the coast and nearby extremely wealthy neighborhoods, which means a much higher average customer transaction (ACT) than most stores in the network. This is a VERY successful & scalable business model and has proven historically to be a safe & solid investment which consistently appreciates in value over time. Considering the startup costs / build out costs of a new center and the amount of years it takes to become a platinum store (1 million+) this business could be perfect for an owner/operator looking to make a great income or even the hands off investor looking to add to their portfolio. Seller will also consider a small note, depending on how the deal is structured. .
The franchiser offers a multi-phased Franchisee Training Program that focuses on developing the business management, technical, conceptual and diagnostic skills necessary to grow the franchised business. Following an introductory Web-based training, there are two basic parts: The In-Store Experience & the University Business Course along with training in San Diego.
Within our territory there is only 1 independent pack & ship, which is not very competitive with our rates or service. Our location enjoys an average customer transaction that is over double the national average for our franchise. Essentially, the ROI this location brings requires less overhead when compared to an average location that would need to process double the clientele, along with an increase of staffing. In addition, this business fared well during the economic downturn during the Great Recession, with minimal impact in revenue.
Plenty of small businesses that could be outsourcing their shipping department to this location. There is a VERY large concentration of art galleries in our territory and we have become known as a source for their shipping needs. Our improved location has the capacity to handle large freight and pallet shipping with its rear single-car sized garage door. Bulk & large items are very profitable due to higher rates able to be charged. In addition, our mailboxes are only at 50% capacity. Opening more hours and print expansion are also large expansion opportunity.
