Hello everyone. I'm new to this forum so please excuse me for not knowing some of the terminology you guys and girls use. Anyway the story is I'm 23 years old and I graduated from college last June. I've been having a hard time finding a real career so I was looking at business opportunities such as route contracting. I've come across a guy who's selling 1 route (FedEx home delivery Tuesday-Saturday) I've asked him a little about the route and why he's selling and he basically told me he has 5 routes and doesn't like filling in sometimes on Saturday, along with a few other things. The route has a driver at the moment and from talking to him the figures look good, after expenses. I'd really like to ask Mom and bbsam a few questions. What are some of the things I should beware of? I've read mom's post about "fire sales", and I'm concerned with that too. The revenue this route generates seems too good to be true, and we all know what they say about things that are too good to be true. Thank you guys in advance for any help you may throw my way.
