Because the Pak Mails are individually owned, I was able to purchase my store at the owner's (reasonable) asking price, not at a price set by the franchisor.
I found a Pak Mail franchise for sale in Florida at a very reasonable price. It's a terrific business model that can be easily learned in a week or two. Training is provided at the home office in Centennial, CO for the US stores. You…

Evaluation Criteria: Best Services General Franchises
Growth Prospect

We evaluate and rank the best franchises offering a variety of professional services to businesses across the United States. During this analysis, we compare the overall potential for growth of franchises which provide businesses with access the services aimed at assisting them with their day-to-day operations. The overall potential for building a business under the franchise name and brand is compared between top franchises.

Marketing Support

We understand many franchisees looking to start their business often look to the franchisor for help in marketing and advertising their business. We measure the amount of assistance which the franchisor provides to businesses looking to get assistance in reaching new audiences relevant to the services they provide. It is important for the franchisor to provide at least a minimal amount of assistance in business marketing.

Training

A critical component of our analysis involves investigating the level of training required for individuals to become involved in providing the types of services provided by each of the listed franchises. For many businesses it is important to have the support of a franchise which provides their franchisees with access to training materials, courses, and other resources to assistance them in better understanding the services they provide.

Ongoing Support

We understand the importance of having access to ongoing support and assistance from a franchisor when starting a franchised business. We measure the level of support which the franchisor provides to the businesses running under their franchise a brand over time as new issues with the service or how the services are being provided are brought up and how any questions or issues are being resolved by the franchisor.

Value

In order to adequately determine which franchises to feature in our rankings we spend time comparing the overall value of a franchise in terms of branding, franchisee offerings, and brand recognition from the target audience. The value is an important trait which entrepreneurs searching for franchise opportunities should take into consideration when searching for their best fit franchise opportunity.
