Jim Bowe and wife, Elizabeth, found their values aligned with the franchise business opportunity and are delighted to now own three Postal Connections stores.
Jim Bowe is a veteran and has served in the Air Force and was ready for a new opportunity after he left the forces. His wife, Elizabeth, has a masters in speech pathology and as a stay-at-home mom, she too was ready for a job with additional flexibility–they found just that with the Postal Connections franchise opportunity when they opened their first store in Lancaster, Pennsylvania back in 2003.
Jim says his experience as a veteran has taught him the value of following a proven business model and that’s exactly what he gets with Postal Connections. “Our respective backgrounds have shown us the value of hard work and working together no matter which careers we pursue,” Jim says.
The Bowes found Postal Connections through a referral and the franchise opportunity was a strong fit with their own values. Through Postal Connections, the Bowes help fellow small business owners in the greater Lancaster, Red Lion and Ephrata areas with a range of business services, including printing, shipping, and more. Their Postal Connections stores serves as a back office for a variety of area businesses and households.
Postal Connections is an especially favorable business proposition for honorably discharged veterans like Jim whose hard work ethic and integrity fit right into the Postal Connections model. Qualified veterans receive 25% off their initial franchise fee. Postal Connections continues to support veteran franchisees as a member of the national Veterans Transition Franchise Initiative (VetFran) program.
Jim and Elizabeth could not be more satisfied with the Postal Connections franchising opportunity. “We felt there was room for growth. We opened our first store and now we have three,” Jim proudly says. A Postal Connections store is a perfect fit for passionate entrepreneurs who want to take the leap to the next stage of their careers.
