Ann Marie Marvin, owner of the San Diego, California location, raised $1,700 for Shelter to Soldier as part of community outreach
For more than 20 years, Postal Connections has been a neighborhood anchor serving area small businesses with a variety of daily needs from packing and shipping supplies, printing services, freight, copying and scanning solutions and more. Postal Connections franchisees are deeply invested in their communities and get to know and solve their business challenges on a one-on-one level, providing superior and personalized customer service.
Such attention to detail has made Postal Connections a favorite in the communities in which they set up shop. Franchisee community outreach is an important component of the franchise opportunity. Recently Ann Marie Marvin, a Postal Connections franchisee in the San Diego, CA community of San Diego, hosted a fundraiser for the nonprofit Shelter to Soldier, in her store.
Shelter to Soldier trains dogs taken from shelters to serve as psychiatric support dogs for soldiers suffering from PTSD and other injuries. Marvin, who herself spent six years in active duty and four years in reserves, raised $1,700 from the event which included a raffle and silent auction.
Marvin’s community gesture won her press from San Diego Magazine, which highlighted Postal Connections and Shelter to Soldier in a dedicated article. Franchisees such as Marvin are an integral part of the Postal Connections family. The national franchise offers veterans like Marvin discounted franchise fees and a path to business ownership that has been tried and tested. What’s more, franchisees routinely receive training and marketing support to highlight their achievements and nurture an even stronger presence in the communities in which they serve.
Full-service Postal Connections stores also have the option of adding on an additional component: an iSOLD It department. The iSOLD It model helps the public sell merchandise through online outlets such as eBay, Craigslist and Amazon, a sought-after service that has gained popularity in recent years. Franchisees who buy a Postal Connections store often house an iSOLD It on location to offer a full suite of selling and packaging services.
Whichever model franchisees choose, there’s a Postal Connections that is just right to nurture their entrepreneurial ambitions.
