    Franchises. Any good ones?

    My wife's job may go away next year. I am self employed and would like her to start business of her own, too. Looking for something that is storefront with minimal employees, maybe 2 to 4. Thinking about a Dollar store or a pack and ship place. Open to suggestions. Who owns a franchise now and what advice can you share? Thanks.

    I don't know how much my buddy make's but he has a package shipping place and one of the best Meineke muffler in the country and he says they both make about the same but the package store is a lot less stressful.

    what does it cost to get in on a UPS store?
    If your boat has a sail do you ride a horse to the ramp?

    How about a MAC Tool truck for her. I am sure guys would love to buy tools from a woman. This could obviously help you with free tools. Guys just love to hear a woman say torque wrench, socket, pry bar, screwdriver, etc etc.

    My friend has a box store here and he makes a killing...Selling .05 boxes for a few bucks who would'nt? I was going to open a Papa Johns pizza several years ago and after jumping through all the hoops they offered me one in Romayor TX....Out in the sticks!

    All the best locations were owned by Frank Carney of Pizza Hut fame I believe. Not sure if Pizza Hut or Pizza Inn but Frank sold the business to Pepsi for around $300+mil, then jumped on with Papa Johns after his no competition clause was up. Now you see a Papa Johns on every corner of every street.

    I had to look that one up.

    Romayor is at the junction of Farm roads 787 and 2610, sixty-three miles northwest of Beaumont in northern Liberty County.

    Yea, I'd say that is the sticks.

    On topic: I hear UPS Store is pretty good.
