UPS IS CURRENTLY RANKED #4 IN THE FRANCHISE 500 - ARE YOU CERTAIN YOU CAN TRUST INDUSTRY REVIEWS? Lately we have had several requests to review the UPS franchise, is it a good franchise to own? Let's take a look. Taken from their 2017 FDD the Cost to open a UPS Store franchise ranges from $177,955 to $402,595. Royalties are 5% marketing is 1% national ad fee is 2.5%. We'll get into some more fees a bit later on. To clarify the business relationship - The UPS Store, Inc. is the franchisor and UPS is the parent entity. UPS franchised stores are retail storefronts which offer mail and parcel services as well as other assorted services like notary,copying, office supplies, printing and others. UPS is a very well known brand name - and like we have said in other videos with franchises like Subway or Quiznos, a big name does not necessarily mean security and wealth for its franchisees. Please don't think just because a franchise is well known that you don't need to perform due diligence. The UPS Store franchise has been no stranger to Litigation over the years. when MailBoxes etc switched to UPS way back in 2003 they were sued class action style based on the assertion that this rebranding violated California, New York and Illinois franchise laws. Many, many franchisees were very unhappy when this change took place and the consensus seemed to be that their potential for profits were severely undermined and that UPS had essentially cheated them. As a result of that suit ultimately 10 years later 143 franchisees were awarded $4.2 million. The claims of the class action suit were not part of the settlement and remain pending. If you take a close look within the pages of the UPS franchise 550 page franchise disclosure documents, there are almost 10 pages of lawsuits concerning in legal terms things like breach of contract, fraud, negligent misrepresentation and similar. In non legal terms a lot of franchisees felt they were royally screwed by UPS. Not to be outdone UPS of America then sued a bunch of their own franchise owners in 2014 for things like trademark infringement, breach of contract, unfair competition, and failure to comply with post termination provisions of their franchise agreements. The franchise owner defendants denied all claims and filed a counter suit against UPS. Last I heard the franchise owners and their 11 stores had been ordered to pay UPS franchising 1 million dollars. There are other lawsuits against the UPS franchise including allegations of overcharging for notary services, civil theft, slander, fraudulent use of personal identification without consent, even some RICO act (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations). In defense of UPS they do state they intend to vigorously defend against these allegations.

WARNING THEY WILL RIP YOU OFF!! Was selling an item on eBay and needed a box. This store advertised a 35x22x22 box in their online flier. Came in and bought one for $28. Brought it home, packed my item and attached the shipping label I printed using the 35x22x22 dimensions and dropped it back at The UPS Store that afternoon and it was shipped out. Only AFTER, the item had been delivered, did I receive an invoice from UPS with a shipping cost adjustment of an additional $86 because the box was larger than what it was sold to me as (and no, it was not due to a bulging box). So, the cost went from $61 to $148 due to the box incurring a large item charge!!! I went back to the store with my receipts and invoices and asked for another 35x22x22 box, measured it, and sure enough, it was the wrong size. I pointed this out to the sales person and she got another staff member to look as well. They acknowledged that they sold me the wrong size box, but only offered to refund the price of the box, still leaving me out $58! I said this was not acceptable since they are a store that specializes in selling shipping supplies for UPS shipments. They said they would contact the owner and get back to me that day. No one called me back that day or the next. Finally, I called the third day, and they said the owner would only refund the cost of the box. Conveniently, The UPS Store and UPS are actually separate companies and when I called UPS, they said it was not their fault and to take it up with The UPS Store. I did some research and found that this store is owned by Republican Randy Jessup, a member of the Minnesota House of Representatives, who also owns UPS Store #5396 in Downtown Minneapolis, and UPS Store #6479 on 2ND AVE S in Minneapolis. I expected more from a member of the GOP and will sadly not be able to support this man or his businesses in the future since this is how he treats his customers.

What are the Most Profitable Franchises? Let's start off with the single highest grossing franchise I have ever encountered in my career. It was a sign franchise, so a franchise that designs, creates and installs signs for businesses. This single unit franchise was generating 30 million dollars a year from a single location. That number is far and away the highest I had ever heard of. But is the sign industry so great? We'll yes, sign franchises and specifically B2B or business to business focused franchises are quite good and they are a sector that most people aren't even aware of. But why are these franchises potentially so profitable? Well it comes down to the business model and the ability of the owner to directly influence his or her business. For sake of comparison look at a McDonalds franchise and their operational model. You set up a location, send out some flyers and coupons and hope for the best. There is really not a whole lot an owner can do to increase the profits of their franchise. Sure they can network the community, meet people and most good local franchise owners do, but that doesnt really impact the revenue in any big way. But when you own a franchise that provides services to businesses, you have a huge impact on the revenues of your store. And here is where once again we see that not all franchises are great for everyone. But someone with a sales, marketing or B2B networking background can really do well by coordinating a sales crew, or in a smaller franchise going out themselves and generating business locally. And that function is not something most people like to do. But the reality is the most profitable franchises are very often tied to businesses where the owner or their employees work quite diligently on new business generation. Now for some potential owners they just want to earn as much money as possible and sell the franchise in a few years for a million dollars. Others wan't a more laid back situation and just stand behind the counter - again - no best franchise. But in cases of where money is the priority there are a lot of these business to business franchises available that allow for direct influence over the amount of money that comes in and the harder and smarter one works the higher the revenues. So let's look at some real world examples. Sign shops are great and will always be in huge demand. Printing, is another business and some of these shops get into the specialty field like car wraps which is a great niche market. We work with several franchises in printing and signs investments start at about $200K give us a call to see which are available in your area or visit our franchise directory to browse them all. Staffing and employment franchises are also potential big money makers. And these are also often lower overhead businesses where you are not buying or selling any products so margins are good. Express Employment, the 4th largest employment franchise in the world has average owners that are open 1 year doing over a million, and their average mature office does 6.2 million in sales. Again we work with several employment franchises call to check territory availability your investment will range from aboutv $80,000 to $200,000 If you have a business background business consulting or coaching can be very profitable and great from an ROI perspective. many of these franchises have low start up costs under $50,000, can be operated from home, have low overhead and very high margins, 6 figures are expected and some top producers earn over a million. Within that group as well are speciality consulting franchises, such a cost reduction consulting where you help companies save money on telecom or billing costs, or energy consulting where you help companies save money on their energy costs. These are all cash businesses no inventory and low margins so can be very profitable. If you have access to a lot of cash there are franchises that actually help you become a short term lender to businesses and will match your loans to six times. With these franchises you earn revenue just like a bank with short term business loans. This is a mostly passive business and can be quite lucrative once your business has a few regular clients. So there you have it, some highly profitable franchise ideas and industries that allow the owner to directly influence their amount of earnings by proactively targeting business to business clients. If money is important and you have the skills, business to business franchises can be the most profitable choice.

POCO F1 Global Launch Event Live Stream | Xiaomi's New SUB-BRAND POCOPHONE Launching Globally🔥🔥🔥 Hey guys, this is the live stream of the Global Launch of the POCOPHONE POCO F1 which is happening in New Delhi, India. Days after Xiaomi announced the launch of its new sub-brand Pocophone, the company this week revealed that its first smartphone — the Poco F1 — will be launched in India on 22 August. The sub-brand's chief product officer and former product head of Xiaomi India, Jai Mani, also quoted the tweet, reaffirming his role in the sub-brand which will soon bring flagship smartphones to India and other countries. But more recently, on Saturday, the company announced that e-commerce giant Flipkart will serve as the "exclusive online partner" for the Poco F1. Touted as being "faster than fire, rain and wind", the Poco F1 has created ripples in the tech industry already. So, what all do we know about it thus far?If a recent unboxing video is to be believed, the black-and-yellow themed phone will sport a notched display and a slightly thick chin. Other reports suggest that the Poco F1 will be available red, blue and grey variants as well.The leaked video suggested that the Poco F1 will be powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 845 processor, coupled with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. tech2 expects a higher-end version with more internal storage to be launched on 22 August as well. Further, the Poco F1 is expected to come packed with an adapter, USB type-C cable and with a back cover. Going by the design of the back cover, it is safe to assume that that the phone has a dual-camera setup on the rear. The phone is expected to have AI-powered dual cameras with dual pixel autofocus.Although there is no leak on how many megapixels will accompany the cameras, some reports pointed at a 12-megapixel + 5-megapixel primary camera setup, and a 20-megapixel selfie camera at the front. The device will run Android Oreo, the report adds. Once switched on, the device in the video revealed that it comes with a 'Liquid' cooling system; a thermal technology that will help stop the phone from over-heating. This feature might excite gamers as it will be ideal for long gaming sessions on the phone.The Poco F1 is also likely to feature a 4,000 mAh battery paired with Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0. Pocophone announced its partnership with Qualcomm last week, vowing to dedicate the next phone to a "whole new level of speed". The POCOPHONE F1 is a flagship phone and will have a price tag lesser than Xiaomi’s current flagships (Mi MIX 2s, Mi 8, and Mi 8 Explorer Edition). It has the same Snapdragon 845 processor powering the aforementioned devices and even packs better specs in some areas such as having a large 4000mAh battery and liquid cooling. The rest of its specs are a 5.99-inch FHD+ display with a notch at the top, 6GB of RAM, and 64GB of expandable storage. It is expected to come in other memory configurations too. It has a 20MP front-facing camera with IR face unlock and vertically arranged 12MP + 5MP dual rear cameras. There is dual-SIM support, Bluetooth 5.0, and a USB-C port. It also supports Quick Charge 3.0. Xiaomi Mi A2 Android One smartphone with 4GB RAM lands in India for Rs. 16,990 ($248). After the launch in India, the POCOPHONE should make its way to Europe but there is no info on the release date for any European country at the moment.

I've been in the IT field with the military for 15yrs and a time is coming when Uncle Sam and I will part ways. I've also done break-fix jobs in the civilian sector but as of late I've looked into the MSP (managed services provider) business model. My question is franchise or not to franchise? There are a few IT MSP franchises out there that look appealing. I've also read articles about franchising being a good fit for military veterans because franchising offers a structured environment (i.e. they have plans & procedures) that veterans are accustomed to. On the down side, the upfront cash to buy a franchise. I think I know your answer but please share your thoughts. -Trevor P.

The UPS Store today announced it is the first nationwide retailer to test 3D printing services in-store. Select UPS Store locations will be offering the services to start-ups, small businesses and retail customers, beginning in the San Diego area with locations in additional cities across the United States in the near future. A recent poll of small business owners conducted by The UPS Store showed high interest in trying the services, particularly for those needing to create prototypes, artistic renderings or promotional materials. "Start-ups, entrepreneurs and small business owners may not have the capital to purchase a 3D printer on their own, but they may have a need to show prototypes to their current and potential customers," said Michelle Van Slyke, vice president of marketing and small business solutions at The UPS Store. "By offering 3D printing capabilities in-center, we're able to help further our small business customers' opportunities for success." The UPS Store is testing the Stratasys uPrint SE Plus printer, which according to Stratasys is most well-known for its ability to print detailed objects more accurately than home 3D printers. Stratasys notes that this is particularly important when parts need to fit into each other or fit some other object. With this printer, The UPS Store locations will be equipped to produce items like engineering parts, functional prototypes, acting props, architectural models, fixtures for cameras, lights and cables. In addition, The UPS Store locations offer a range of services tailored to meet the needs of small businesses in all stages of the business lifecycle. Not only can small business owners receive well-recognized services like packing and shipping, printing, faxing, direct mail and mailbox services, but The UPS Store locations also will work with business owners to develop custom solutions to meet their unique business needs. For more information on how The UPS Store supports small businesses, visit the Small Business Solutions portal at http://smallbiz.theupsstore.com. Follow The UPS Store on Twitter at https://twitter.com/TheUPSStore, and like The UPS Store on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/theupsstore. Poll Methodology The results of the poll are based on a national online poll with small business owners. The poll was conducted with 86 small business owners between June 3 and June 17, 2013. The sample was drawn from Small Biz Buzz, The UPS Store private online community of small business owners.

Lets start with an interesting statistic. According to the NACS 2017 Retail Fuels Report, 59% of gas stations in the U.S. are one owner-operated. They own one store and often that store is attended by the owner. That type of business is what we call buying a job. The owners aren't working in the business because it makes so much money they are workimng there because they have to. Also interesting to note is that most major oil companies have sold off all or most of their fuel station holdings. Do you think you as a small business buyer have more market knowledge than the best business minds hired by the oil companies? Big oil is getting out of gas stations that should be a warning sign as shouold the huge number of single store owner operators. Many of these are struggling business owners making a living on very small margins. Which bring us to the next point 1. Small Margins. Here is a great infographic from the Orange County Register on where $50 spent at the pump goes. $30.75 to the oil company, $7.00 to the refineries, $6.00 on taxes, $4.00 to the delivery company, $1.25 on processing and transaction fees and finally right at the end of the chain you get $1.00. And that number can and does change sometimes even lower most owners suggesting an average of 1-3 cents net per gallon. If you speak with gas station owners as we do or even just visit forums and chatrooms with actual gas station owners most will tell you the gas is just a way to get people to the location and they actually make their money on cigarettes, soft drinks, coffee, and snack foods. But a huge problem today is more and more gas buyers are paying at the pump and not even entering the store making it even less profitable. But you will still have non driving walk in traffic leading us to reason #3 - rough customers 2. Most cheap gas stations are located in less than desirable neighborhoods and open 24 hours a day. And lets face it most gas stations are often frequented by some interesting people particularly in the late and early morning hours. We all watch Youtube and see some of the crazy stuff that happens in convenience stores and gas stations. That will also be happening to you - is that something you want to deal with? Ask your seller if they have ever had any issues where they had to call the police, and Google the address and see if any crime reports come up. There are over 7000 robberies each year at gas stations and 15,000 at conveniece stores which is disproportionate in relation to other businesses. 3. Franchising. Now there are many situations where the franchising model works. In my opinion gas is not one of them. In fact if you are at the mercy of buying only one companies gas at a fixed price, being unable to shop for better pricing, stuck with every promotion they decide on as well as having to pay franchise royalties and fees with your already slim margins, being profitable can be difficult. 4. Environmental issues.This is a problem specific to gas stations. Are the tanks leaking? If so the cost of cleanup can be costly. Many unwary buyers found themselves on the hook for huge bills because they chose to survey only assets that were above ground. 5. At the mercy of potential construction. Some unethical sellers pull a fast one and after determing that weeks or months of construction will make thier location inaccessible put it on the market. Always check with the local department of transportation prior to making an offer on a gas station. Or any business for that matter. Now in closing yes I understand that gas stations and convenience stores CAN be a good business or franchise. In these videos I provide the negative side because as we all know the seller is only giving you the good side. An business decision that has considered both the bad and the good is an educated one.

* Join my BELIEVE newsletter: http://www.evancarmichael.com/newsletter/ Emil: "Hey Evan! I have been watching your videos for a while now. Hope you enjoyed your trip to Asia! I am enthusiastic about entrepreneur videos. I have searched on Youtube and Google and I always get videos/articles about what to do. I believe knowing what NOT to do is equally important. Usually, all I get is generic tips such as "dont grow too fast" but there are no concrete case studies. But when it comes to successful stories, there are specific examples we can learn from.

If you want to Buy a Franchise avoid the 6 big mistakes. http://www.cafranchiseopportunities.com/buy-a-franchise So, you are looking to buy a franchise and you are wondering where to start. One of the most important principles you need to adopt is "learn from the mistakes of others". There is no need for you to go into this blind and repeat someone else's mistakes. Mistake 1: Following Your Passion This one may seem strange at first. After all, aren you not supposed to follow your passion? Is not that what everyone says, "do what you are passionate about"? Here is the twist -- passion is great and it is sometimes the only thing that separates you from failure, but to succeed in business, you need a passion for starting and running a business.

UPDATE - SUBWAY CLOSED ANOTHER 909 STORES IN 2017 - WHO TOLD YOU FIRST OVER 4 YEARS AGO? WE DID!! Here at Franchise city we help investors find the right franchise, a lot of that has to do with educating people as we do in these videos on our Youtube channel. One of the brands we are asked about most often is the Subway Franchise. Now there is no question Subway as a corporation is super successful, but does that bear any relevance to you as an individual unit franchise owner? We all know the high points about Subway, in this video we will look at some reasons you may not want to open one. 1. Massive Competition. If you live in any major city and have a desire for a Sub you won't drive more than a couple of blocks before seeing another Subway Franchise. Thatis convenient for you as a consumer but for franchisees not so great. When you combine the fact that your store is competing with many other Subways - with the very low margins seen on promotions like the $5 sub - you have a recipe for working hard for little pay. Additionally Subway as a corporation despite it's massive success has seen revenue declines the past few years which brings us to our next point - store closures: 2. Store Closures and Corporate Decline. Subway reportedly had 359 store closures in 2016.The first time ever. For the past 4 years we have been cautioning Subway investors on what appeared to be a potentially over saturated and overheated market.Despite all this information being publicly available you still see people lining up to buy a Subway. And you see this type of irrational investor behavior in real estate speculation as well as in stock market investing. Right before a crash, or a decline there is a massive influx of investors who throw their money at this supposedly "incredible opportunity". But the opportunity only looks incredible because everyone is doing it. Once it hits bottom people learn their lesson. And you can't blame investors as they see all these franchises everywhere and assume that means guaranteed success. What that in fact means is intense competition. cont'd at http://www.franchise.city/subwayfranchise/ http://www.subway.com https://www.qsrmagazine.com/reports/qsr50-2016-top-50-chart

Watch more How to Get into the Restaurant Business videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/506560-How-to-Calculate-StartUp-Costs-Restaurant-Business Let's talk about calculating the start-up costs of your restaurant. This is a place where you can not be too detailed. Everything is important. Even the box of pencils that you buy to do your staff training. Every little detailed cost will come into play, because unfortunately you won't get revenue until you open, and you're going to need to pay for all of those things without any income to offset them. And also, in the beginning of the life of a restaurant, it's rarely as busy as you want it to be, or as it will become. One of the most significant start-up costs will be construction. Now if you're taking over an existing restaurant, your construction costs might not be too great. But if you're starting with a raw space, the engineering, the ventilation, the plumbing, all will add an extraordinary amount to your construction costs. And unfortunately, it's usually more than you want it to be. Additionally, you're going to need to have staff in place and on payroll in advance of your actual opening. You probably will want to hire your senior staff earliest, then your managers, and then your hourly staff later and closer to the opening. But everybody need to have time to be trained in their position and in the space before you open, or opening night could be a disaster and you could create a very bad first impression. Additionally, there are all the other costs that are involved in equipping a restaurant. Kitchen equipment, refrigeration, stoves, mixers, small utensils. And then all of the equipment that's needed in the dining room. Tables, chairs, glassware, plate ware, service ware, silverware, all of those cost money and need to be brought in before you open. An important thing to remember with supplying your restaurant with equipment, is you don't need it all to open. You can reorder. You may have a need for fewer pieces of equipment to get open, than you need a year or two down the road. Don't buy equipment because you think it's cool. Buy the equipment you need and do that first and grow the restaurant's equipment as the restaurant grows. So once you've done a wonderful, detailed, thorough job of estimating all of your start-up costs, it's important to remember that things are going to happen. Things are not going to go exactly the way you want, maybe your gas doesn't get turned on the day you expect it to, or you're unable to get your permits in time to open. So you need to build in a contingency. You need to build in some percentage of additional costs for your opening. Something's going to happen with construction. Something's going to happen with what's required. And you want to have some cash that you planned on for those things that happen. Unfortunately. Once you have all of your start-up costs prepared, it's important to start thinking about how they'll get paid for, when the bills will come due, and how that will dove-tail with your revenue as you start operating your restaurant, and all those start-up costs lead to that wonderful moment, when you open the doors and start feeding people and making them happy.

One of the brands we are frequently asked about is the 7-Eleven Franchise. 7-Eleven stores can be found on almost every street corner and they are one of the most visible franchise brands. Many people think that means it must be very successful, and that 7-Eleven stores will make you rich. But what does 7-Eleven's corporate success mean to you as an individual franchise owner? If your dream is to buy a 7-Eleven and you really want to invest intelligently knowing both sides of the story let's look at 4 reasons you might not want to invest in a 7-Eleven franchise. 1. 50% or more of Profits to 7-11. 7-Eleven is an "Operator Model", or what we like to call "buying a job". So 7-Eleven buys the store, land, building and equipment and then leases it back to you - the franchisee. Despite the relatively large investment you will make, typically $150,000 or more 7-Eleven corporate will take close to or in same cases over 50% of your revenue. Franchise owners often find they have to work in the store themselves in order to make any money at all. Its interesting how 7-11 describes this arrangement on their website " A gross profit split means we are invested" and you can see in the image here. 7-Eleven in my opinion is misleading buyers by not disclosing they take at least 50% of your gross revenue upfront. And if you think 50% is bad wait until your store starts earning more money. Unlike many other franchises that reward you for doing well with a declining royalty - 7-Elevens fees go up the more money you make. so 52% 55% 56% and on and on. How much does a 7-Eleven store owner make? Well a lot dependson what you are selling as some items have much higher margins but a very approximate estimate is 5% of store sales so a store doing $1,000,000 in sales would generate about $50,000 for the owner. There are more accurate ways to forecast 7-Eleven franchise earnings but that will give you a ballpark. Now you know why you often see owners working in the stores.

Let me begin by saying there is a lot that Chick-fil-A has done right. Their earnings per store or average unit volumes are at the top of the QSR50 at 4.4 million. To put that into perspective the average unit volume of a Subway store - lets go way down second from the bottom of the chart -uh-oh at a paltry $422,000. So Chick-fil-A locations earn 10 times what a Subway earns! Now for those of you who follow this channel you know I am not a fan of Subway, but if I had to choose between the two I would invest in a Subway before Chick-fil-A even despite those earnings. I'll reveal why in a moment. Chick-fil-A also has a very low franchisee dropout rate at less than 5% and many operators are with the company for 20 years or more. Employee turnover is also low at only 60% compared to typical food industry attrition rate of over 100%. Chick-fil-A really seems to take care of their employees and provides incentive programs for hard workers that show initiative to move up the ladder. Considering how effective this is it's surprising how few companies offer this. Chick-fil-A has just over 2000 restaurants and every one of them closes on Sundays. Despite having one less day to sell, Chick-fil-A has higher total revenues than many franchises open Sundays and with double the locations. The corporate office doesn't hide the fact they are a Christian organization that believes in traditional marriage and family values and they got some heat recently for opposing same sex marriages and sending millions to organizations that lobby against it. Chick-fil-A was actually started as the Dwarf Grill in 1946 and opened by S. Truett Cathy, The first Chick-fil-A opened in 1967 so they have a long history and experience in franchising. So it looks like for some people we have the American Dream here - Christian values, closed on Sundays , 4 million dollars annual volumes per store, happy employees and low franchisee turnover AND did I mention a super low franchise fee of only $10,000! Sign me up!! Interesting to note: Despite all these good things you will never see investor groups, single investors, brokers, sports celebrities or anyone looking to build a franchise empire buying a a Chick-fil-A. Why is that? Lets look at those top 6 reasons you may not want to buy a Chick-fil-A 1. You absolutely need to be at the store and run the store. The store becomes your life. One of the benefits of franchising is the ability to eventually or even initially operate your store in a passive capacity, meaning it will still operate and generate revenue while you are doing other things. Some franchises are better at this than others but being able to have your business operate while you run other businesses, work a career, travel or whatever else, is a major benefit of franchising. In situations like this where franchisees are required to work in the store we call this "buying a job" and with Chick-fil-A you will be required to work in the store............. cont'd at: http://www.franchise.city/chick-fil-a-franchise/ https://www.qsrmagazine.com/content/qsr50-2017-top-50-chart https://www.chick-fil-a.com/
