The Federal Trade Commission and various state franchise sales regulations restrict our ability to share specific profit projections outside our Franchise Disclosure Document, which you will obtain in the evaluation process. This document contains financial aspects of franchising with PostNet, and we also encourage you to speak with our existing franchisees to gain a better understanding of the business potential.
Once a franchise has been awarded, it usually takes approximately 90 to 180 days. This depends largely on the real estate that is identified. In the case of a newly constructed shopping center, the timeframe could be longer.
The average PostNet center is 1,000 to 1,200 square feet. However, we have centers as small as 700 square feet and larger centers that range upward of 2,000 square feet. The PostNet concept is flexible, and the size of your center will depend not only on your plans but also on the availability of locations in your market.
PostNet is with you every step of the way, from identifying a location through the opening of your business. You will work closely with our Director of Real Estate to identify every location in your market that meets PostNet’s criteria. Once the location is identified, PostNet offers assistance through the lease negotiation, which culminates in the execution of a lease for your new business location. You can also consider buying an existing PostNet center.
Yes. We require a new Franchisee to operate their center for a minimum of 6 months, after which time they can open additional centers with a discounted Franchise Fee.
Absolutely.
