Start Your Own Small Business Franchise — Initial Investment

Once you've made the decision to strike out on your own; to own your own business, some of the hardest work is done. Now, it's our turn. At PostalAnnex, we'll work hard to help you make informed decisions and will assist you every step of the way in creating and growing your service center. Professionals can even help you design your new PostalAnnex small business franchise. We'll explain how the franchise system operates. We'll provide critical training in areas like sales and marketing. Later, we'll offer key support services, including an industry-exclusive, initial 90-day startup marketing program.

Chris Ware, Franchisee since 2004, explains why she chose a franchise instead of starting a business on her own.

It all begins with you. If you want to know us better, take a tour of this Web site.
