Connecticut

eBay Drop-Off & Shipping Store

The Industry: Americans have too much "stuff" and now they can sell it on eBay--if they have the patience to learn the system.
Highlights: This franchisee is part of a national chain whose stores take in consumers' extra items and place them on eBay auctions. Store employees take several photos of each item and write a description and post this information on the auction site using proprietary software. Once the item is sold, the store collects the money from the winning bidder, packs and ships the item and sends the balance due to the owner of the item–the store’s customer.
As PowerSellers, the store can purchase close-out merchandise from National Vendors and run its own auctions--typicially generating 70% Gross Profits. Also, this store recently added general packing and shipping services for anyone visiting the store.
The Offering: This franchisee has exclusive rights to a 10-mile radius of its store in Central Connecticut. The unit opened in 2006 and has achieved excellent growth. The three sellers planned to share the hours needed to run the store, but now one is carrying most of the load... and she recently had a baby. Without payroll, this company showed over $100,000 in Cash Flow for the twelve months ended June 30, 2007. If you hire employees to work 62 hours a week, you'll still have over $70,000 a year in Cash Flow. A husband and wife team can keep it all!
Buyer Profile: If you'd enjoy a fun business serving your neighbor's needs, the franchisor will teach you everything else you need to know.
Job Description: Owners will assist customers, complete a questionnaire and either photograph and post the details on the auction website or oversee employees who do.
Investment: This franchise, including all equipment necessary to run the business, inventory and the protected territory can be purchased for $175,000. A buyer with good credit should be able to obtain a loan for amounts exceeding $50,000. The franchisor suggests that a new store will cost $110,000 to open.

Internet Consulting Services

The Industry: The Internet continues to reshape the world. Every business without a web presence is searching for a cost effective way to tap its power. Those with a Web Site are looking for ways to generate more customers by improving their sites.
Highlights: This home-based franchise system is a leader in the field offering unique software and hosting solutions to small and medium-sized businesses in any industry. Franchisees fulfill a consulting role by helping business owners understand how the internet can help their companies expand, be more efficient and more profitable. Most clients report an increase in sales and a decrease in expenses. Each franchise focuses on website development, internet marketing and on-going consulting services. After getting a client commitment, the franchisees and their employees gather the necessary information and forward it to production centers affiliated with the franchisor who complete the project. Franchisees make money in three ways: by helping businesses establish their own internet presence; by offering businesses results-oriented internet consulting and marketing services; and by supplying the clients with internet hosting services. Full training will be provided by the franchisor on how to market its wide variety of services. The franchisor provides proprietary internet server systems, website design and development, internet marketing materials, training updates and it is constantly developing new products and services for the network to offer to its clients.
The Offering: The owner purchased this franchise in the Spring of 2004 and has since decided to invest more heavily in the system and operate a Production Center. The franchise may be relocated anywhere in the US and has the rights to sell services nationwide. The franchisor will provide a week-long training class at its headquarters. In addition, the seller will provide transitional training and free production services for the new owner–giving added value to the franchise.
Buyer Profile: These franchises are typically run from home by the owner with just one or two additional employees. No previous experience in marketing or the internet is required. The franchisor has successfully trained owners from a broad range of careers. The buyer should enjoy building a company where business-to-business relationships are important. As a part of this franchise network, you will be positioned to take charge of your future by capitalizing on an explosive opportunity.
Job Description:The franchise owner can focus on the aspects of the business in which he or she excels and hire others to take care of the remaining responsibilities. Typically, new clients are found through networking, advertising and referrals. The salesman meets with potential clients to discuss possible solutions for their business, and gather the information needed to produce the ideal internet solution. This data is then forwarded to programmers who design, develop and implement the web solution on the franchisor's servers. A franchisee may choose to engage several salesmen to help grow the business more rapidly.
Investment: This five-year franchise license is available for less than $65,000.

Sports Photography

The Industry: Parents worldwide encourage their children to exercise, gain a competitive spirit, and learn life's lessons by playing a variety of sports. Kids love the chance to learn and excel.

Families then order packages from these photos for sharing with family and friends. Building a record of their child's achievements becomes so important that it's proven to be a recession proof industry!
