The UPS Store offered a significant opportunity for multi-unit ownership for Charlotte, NC franchise owner
The UPS Store franchise network is a growing community of driven entrepreneurs and savvy small-business owners across the country each with their own unique journey and story to tell. One of the most exceptional advantages of owning a franchise with The UPS Store is the opportunity to expand the reach of your business as you develop and grow as a business owner. Multi-unit franchise business programs with The UPS Store allow you to flourish as an entrepreneur by opening new franchise locations and securing a larger share of your market at your own personal pace.
“The UPS Store franchise networks have a strong success twofold: one is the diversity and distribution of the centers we have across the country; it gives us a presence in almost every market. The other important thing when we joined the franchise was the strength it delivers through the actual brand and UPS shield, " says Michael Kelley of Charlotte, NC, owner of four stores since 2010.
Michael is an active member of The UPS Store franchise business ownership community, who first linked up with the brand in March 2010 after unsuccessfully trying his hand in the restaurant franchise industry. Thankfully, he was able to learn from past experiences and channel new found success with The UPS Store. Today he owns and operates four distinct locations throughout the Charlotte, North Carolina market.
“We knew that we wanted to own multiple centers and there were two reasons for it: one is revenue stream and looking at economies of scale, the other was the idea that we can control a territory. Our stores are located within 5-10 miles of each other and as a result, our customers experience the same good customer service at every store in our area. We actually control the customer experience in our small demographics,” said Kelley, adding, “Owning my own business is the most intense thing I've ever done in my life. You wake up, you go to bed, you dream it. It's your everyday. You and your associates are working for your future and not somebody else's, so it becomes the most rewarding experience as well."
Kelley’s experience growing with The UPS Store franchise business is just one example of the many aspiring business owners who have found continued success through multi-unit ownership. The franchise business is the perfect industry for first-time business owners looking to enter the world of entrepreneurship.
Owning a franchise business with The UPS Store gave Michael Kelley the opportunity to transition into a new lifestyle of personal and financial freedom - a dream for many hard-working Americans across the country. Join with The UPS Store on your journey towards this dream today with the many franchise business ownership opportunities available to match your unique lifestyle and business goals!
