Women's Franchise Opportunities
A 2011 report for the IFA Franchise Education and Research Foundation found that women-owned nearly 21 percent of franchised businesses and 24 percent had dual male-female owners. For the past five years, franchise business growth has exceeded non-franchise business growth, according to IFA’s Franchise Business Outlook: 2016. The trend is expected to continue this year.
The Right Fit for Women
The UPS Store franchise network boasts a growing number of women franchise opportunities. Why? Simply because women often have strengths that align with what The UPS Store is looking for in a franchisee:
- Able to effectively manage time and resources
- Dedicated to making their business work
- Adaptability, strong networking and communication skills
- Understand the importance of providing outstanding customer service
Here’s what a few of our female franchisees say about their experience with The UPS Store:
“It's not corporate, it's that person's livelihood, it's their families, it's their passion, and that comes through in how we treat our customers and then the service that they get when they walk into our store. The thing I enjoy most about being a The UPS Store franchisee is I get to get up, go to work and know that I'm helping other business owners succeed in what they're doing.” – Heidi Morris
“Owning my own business has changed my life tremendously, I think more for myself now, I make business decisions today which I would never have made before, my confidence has grown, I'm more secure, my management skills have grown immensely, and I feel like I could probably do any job now from what I've gained working with The UPS Store." – Maria Daly
“Financially, The UPS Store has made a huge difference in our lives. We're putting three kids through college and that's not easy, but this has given us the opportunity to create the life for our family that we intended. It has definitely met our expectations.” – Melissa Thomas
“Owning my own The UPS Store has changed my life tremendously. I am a single parent and being able to have the free time to go to their functions has given me a different lifestyle with my children versus someone dictating to me when I can leave, where I can go, and what I can do.” – Donna Trainor
