Who ultimately selects the location for The UPS Store® franchise in the area I am interested in?
The UPS Store, Inc. will work with you to help you find an acceptable location based on your preferences, available markets and the company’s overall franchise system expansion goals and site selection criteria. We must approve the location of your center, but the final decision and responsibility on franchise site selection will be yours.
Our franchise development team works closely with qualified prospective franchise owners to help them decide where to locate their new The UPS Store® centers. We want to make sure new locations match the preferences of our owners and align with our overall business strategy. Our local representative will use market research from our Real Estate Development Department to offer guidance in choosing an acceptable location for your needs. Although we must approve the location for your center, ultimately, the final decision to commit to a location is up to you.
