Parcel Plus® is a pack-and-ship center that provides outstanding customer service to consumers, small office/home office (SOHO) and other business owners. You usually find Parcel Plus in neighborhood shopping and strip centers with strong anchor tenants. Besides retail pack-and-ship, Parcel Plus offers crating and shipping of larger cargo items.
Other services offered by many Parcel Plus centers include greeting cards, gift wrapping supplies and wrapping service, faxing, mailboxes, convenience copiers, mailing services, business cards, office supplies, specialty advertising, labels, notary, banners, name badges, and rubber stamps.
Technological advancement has led to the growth of the home-based business market. Parcel Plus positions itself to become the secondary offices for these entrepreneurs who don't want to have copiers, fax machines and postal meters cluttering their homes. In addition, they may not have the supplies or the time to ship products related to their business.
Ready to Start a Family Business?
Parcel Plus is one of nine franchise systems that are part of the International Center for Entrepreneurial Development (ICED). We like to call it ... the ICED family. Since 1967, we've helped over 2,000 families start and own their own businesses … in fact, nearly one out of every nine domestic ICED franchisees has second-generation involvement in the family business. Many of the original owners have realized the importance of creating a business legacy to pass down to their children. The ICED family of franchises truly focuses on the family.
Is Parcel Plus Right for You?
Parcel Plus center owners are customer-focused. Typically, they come from managerial backgrounds, possess solid people skills, and are comfortable training and leading employees. Parcel Plus center owners understand the importance of implementing a consistent direct marketing program. Active participation in the community through Rotary, Chambers of Commerce and other service organizations is an important role for a Parcel Plus center owner.
Prior to providing professional pack-and-ship services, you attend a two-week training program at our international training facility. They receive hands-on guidance in operations, business planning, financial analysis, target marketing and other essential areas. FedEx® and UPS® provide preferred pricing tiers. The National Marketing Fund pays for the creation and distribution of professionally designed advertising materials to help grow your business.
