I'm looking into acquiring 3 to 4 Fedex routes with the intention of expanding. I'm considering leaving a job in the finance industry (I want to be self-employed) and have around $400k to invest. I jotted down a few questions: What are the major concerns about running a route? (Future and Present Concerns) What is the key to keeping Fedex happy so they renew your contract? What questions should I ask before acquiring a route? Any value going through a broker? based on this forum I would assume not. How difficult is it to expand (acquire more routes) once you're in the Fedex system? If there are any questions I failed to address, let me know, and if possible could you answer them? Thanks.
