Description About This Posting: Mail Center - Independent
This business has been operating from the same Orange County location and under the same ownership since 1993. Originally opening as a Mail Boxes, Etc franchise, the current owners became an independent company in 2003. The business is well known throughout the community and continues to have a strong and loyal customer base. The business offers most of the services that UPS and other mail center franchises offer without having to pay any franchise royalty or advertising fees. These services include shipping through UPS, FedEx, DHL, and USPS, shipping supplies, packaging and packaging supplies, mailbox rentals, stamps, notary, copying and fax services, office supplies, greeting cards, passport photos, and document scanning. This location is also an authorized drop-off center for several carriers, earning commissions on each drop-off. Mailbox rentals at this location is very strong and continues to be a large source of ongoing revenue.
After operating the business for the past 25 years, the owners are burned out and wanting to retire. Virtually no advertising or marketing is being done by the current ownership, relying mostly on referrals and word of mouth. Sales and profits have been very consistent over the past several years and this presents a solid opportunity for a new owner to step in and increase revenue by offering additional services such as LiveScan fingerprinting, shredding, and individual computer time rental. New advertising and marketing efforts will also be an effective avenue for increasing sales.
The books and records of this business are very clean, making bank financing a good possibility. Seller financing is a possibility for buyers with excellent credit and a strong financial statement. Included in the purchase price is inventory, equipment, an active website and domain name, and a complete training period.
