Parcel Plus On Entrepreneur's Top Franchise 500 Five Years In A Row

CYPRESS, TEXAS | Thursday, January 20, 2005

Parcel Plus announces its inclusion, for the fifth consecutive year, in Entrepreneur Magazine’s list of Top 500 Franchises, ranked number 260 in 2005.

Parcel Plus, part of the International Center for Entrepreneurial Development (ICED) franchise network, offers pack-and-ship and business services such as copying, faxing, mailbox rentals and mailing to consumers and small office/home office and other business owners. In addition to retail pack-and-ship, Parcel Plus offers cargo crating and shipping. “Parcel Plus has made great strides since we acquired them in 1986, becoming a real competitor in the small-to-medium size business services market,” says Brian Gay, president of Parcel Plus. “To be included on Entrepreneur’s list for five years running serves to validate the recent steady growth of the brand.” Entrepreneur Magazine bases its rankings on factors that include financial strength and stability, growth rate, size of the system, years in business, length of time in franchising, start-up costs, litigation and percentage of terminations.
