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:

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.
