SEMI-ABSENTEE OWNER-works 10 to 15 hrs/wk.
This Ink & Toner Store has been in operation for nine years, five years by the current owner. There are no other franchises of this brand in the area. The only other franchise store in the area closed in August (2014) due to the owners father's illness. Some customers from that store are coming over to this location. The Seller works 10 to 15 hours per week (semi-absentee). His duties include deliveries, ordering product, payroll, scheduling, bank deposits, and some record keeping. The balance of his time is spent on his Real Estate business. Store hours are Monday thru Friday from 9am to 6pm, Saturday from 10am to 3pm. The owner decided to sell due to his wife's pregnancy and they want to relocate out of state to be closer to their families.
There are three types of stores offered by the Franchisor, Satellite, Finished Goods, and Full Production. This is a Full Production Store where they manufacture most of the cartridges in house. The other types of stores outsource all their products or finished goods from approved vendors. A Satellite Store is a second store where there is only a store front and is considered an extension of the first store. The area master franchisee told the owner that a new store is approximately $150,000 to open up. This store is established and turn-key.
With approximately 9,890 Customers in their database, they added 1,200 customers in 2014 with a 60/40 mix of business and home customers.
