What are the financial requirements to be considered?

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 UPS Store center.

Based on the center's location and size, the total initial investment cost for a new UPS Store center at a traditional location ranges from $167,825- $353,580. We require all prospective franchisees be able to verify a minimum of $60,000--100,000 in liquid assets.* This is 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.
