Have you ever dreamed of owning your own business, but didn’t know where to start? From filling the perfect niche to raising the funds to get it off the ground, developing and opening your own business can seem like an insurmountable task.
Enter the franchise. Opening a franchise is a great way to own your own business without the added risk and financial hurdles associated with building one from the ground up, and nothing can be more true than opening a franchise with Pak Mail. A tried and true model of success supported by a network of resources, opening a franchise with Pak Mail has everything aspiring entrepreneurs need to not just run their own business, but succeed in it as well.
A Proven Model of Success
Florida-based Pak Mail Field Consultant John Shirling knows franchising. With 48 stores under his wing spreading from Pensacola all the way down to Key West, he has spent countless hours working with franchisees to build successful Pak Mail operations.
“A franchise is a proven model of success,” says Shirling. “If you can follow direction, chances are you’ll be successful. Last thing I want is someone to reinvent the wheel.”
Take for example Pak Mail Cape Coral, located in beautiful Cape Coral, Florida, owned and operated by Denise Clements and Sally Guske. Seeing an opportunity, they took over the fledgling store approximately four years ago and have since turned it into one of the most successful Pak Mail operations in the country.
But it didn’t come easy. After spending some time uprooting the foundation (figuratively speaking, of course), Denise and Sally rebuilt the store from the inside out. Eventually a change in location was needed, and so after about two years, they moved locations entirely without a decline in sales. In fact, their business only continued to grow!
In the end, Shirling attributes their success to their unwavering devotion to customer service. “There’s nothing they won’t do to make a customer happy. If they can’t do something, they’ll tell you, but they’ll also work with you to find an alternative solution so you walk out happy.” Business acumen and a desire to learn is necessary, but as Denise and Sally suggest, customer service is the backbone of franchise success.
