I am looking into a franchise opportunity that provides packing, shipping, and various other business services. At this point, we are in the planning phase and gathering as much information as possible to incorporate into our business plan. Primarily, we are looking for revenue, overhead, and profit information. Does anyone here have experience with a franchise such as this? The specific franchise we're looking at is not owned by a major shipping company (UPS or FedEx).

Along with the ballpark financial info, does anyone else have advice on a business opportunity such as this? Our area demographics are a town of roughly 13,000 with another 20,000 living within a 10-mile radius of the city limits. The only competition initially will be the local post office.

Thanks in advance!
