Business Description:
Products are a quality alternative to expensive OEM printer toners and cartridges. Customers include corporations, small and medium businesses, schools, hospitals and individuals. Additionally, they provide printer maintenance, cleaning and repair as well as onsite self serve quick copy services. The company can also manage replacement inventory management on the customers premises and recycling of used cartridges. Note that the franchisees have been released from their franchise agreements as of December 2014 and NO LONGER PAY ANY ROYALTIES, AD FEES or TECHNOLOGY FEES. Zero fees paid to anyone - forever. The former franchisees are permitted to continuing using the name and logo - forever (at no cost). The most recent recast profit and loss shows annual owner benefit of over $122,000. The owners of the Raleigh location have had their baby and have told me to SELL THIS BUSINESS. Sellers want to engage with a single buyer prospect immediately at $192,500.

Preference will be given to buyers with all cash offers not requiring a lender.
