There are no industry skills required. Obviously some skills in running a business would be advantagous but we started this business from scratch from previous employment that was not related to this at all and this was the first business we ever owned. The support network within the group is amazing so you have a safety net. The current staff can also manage the shop unsupervised so are very capable.
Length of Agreement

About the Opportunity
This business is currently run and managed by 2 staff or it can be run by the owner and 1 other staff member if the owner wants to work in the business. This can be an investment or a lifestyle choice. The owner of this store does the bookwork from home and can spend minimal time at the store but there is opportunity for growth if the owner can afford more time to spend working on growing the business. Currently this franchise doesn't spend a lot of time or money on advertising or promoting the business other than the advertising fund contribution so there is plenty of room for growth. The Store Manager also does sales work and deliveries so is always in constant contact with our business clients which has been the reason this store has been so successful and continues to be year after year. This business has been running for 14 years and has always been a constant success and reliable to pay bills and wages. It's been a constant and steady income to the owner who needed flexibility and to be able to spend time raising children without having to be present every day. We have a mix of clients, those being private and business to business and we have a very loyal group of customers that have been coming to us for years. Our customer service by far makes us a stand out from other businesses and that keeps our customers coming back. Our Store Manager goes above and beyond to exceed their expectations every time. We have grown over the years from refilling most cartridges to now selling some Cartridge World branded cartridges and refilling a smaller number of cartridges. We can now provide other options for our customers also by providing printing solutions for items such as business cards, flyers, banners etc.
