Initial Investment Information

The Initial Investment in any retail franchise is typically composed of three elements - Initial license fees, establishment costs and working capital.

1. Initial License Fees

Initial License Fees are one-off fees required to gain access to use The Courier Guys intellectual property - including the trademarks, the complete business operating system and proprietary technology. It also includes initial training for you and/or key staff. The Courier Guys initial training includes:
  • Two weeks initial training at corporate office that covers all areas of running the franchise business.
  • One week practical training in one of our corporate-owned Service Centres.
  • One week on-site assistance and training at your location during the opening period.

2. Establishment Costs

Establishment costs include such things as fit-out, equipment, packaging supplies and other items (stationery/office supplies, legal costs, uniforms, rent deposit, aviation security regulatory training).

Establishment costs can vary. For example, fit-out costs can vary depending on the size and condition of the premises to be leased.

3. Working Capital

Like every new business that opens - you will need working capital during the development period of building your business. These additional funds support on-going expenses, such as rent and utilities, to the extent that these costs are not covered by sales revenue in the early development months of your operation.

Total Initial Investment

There are two types of franchise units that can be purchased. The first is the establishment of a new Express Kiosk franchise in a new territory. The second is the acquisition of an existing Express Kiosk
