Franchising Frequently Asked Questions
What is franchising?
Franchising allows you to have all the benefits of owning your own business, but with the added support of a recognized brand and an established method of doing business.
The UPS Store franchise opportunities are available nationwide. With The UPS Store, you can be your own boss with the foundation of our brand, our training, and our systems.
Our network has more than 40 years of franchising experience, with over 30 years here in Canada. We’ve learned what works through the years, and you can benefit from that knowledge. The UPS Store will provide extensive training and support to help you run and grow your business from Day 1.
What are the financial requirements to be considered for a franchise?
Franchisees must meet The UPS Store minimum financial requirements and be in a position to capitalize the franchise investment, including working capital and any personal living expenses during the set-up period. Startup costs vary based on the size and location of your new The UPS Store centre.
Based on the centre’s location and size, the total initial investment cost for a new The UPS Store centre ranges from $174,000 to $198,500, plus required working capital. We require that all prospective franchisees be able to verify a minimum of $80,000–100,000 in liquid assets.* This can be met through any combination of cash, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, retirement accounts, or other non-borrowed source. A co-applicant may also assist in meeting this requirement.
*Meeting this requirement does not guarantee the awarding of a franchise.
