Ink N More offers entrepreneurs the opportunity to create the business of their dreams, whether this means a single unit retail location or multiple units. Beyond our core beliefs of great product value and exceptional service, the Rapid Refill business model is unique and scalable, focused on helping franchisees grow their businesses fast!
For franchisees who want even more success, we will help them expand operating efficiencies so they can add additional locations. Ink N More’s easy-to-run retail business model is a natural for entrepreneurs desiring to own multiple units to increase their profitability.
We also offer two different types of store configurations. Franchisees can open either full-service stores (retail in the front of the store and cartridge remanufacturing in the rear of the store) or retail-only stores. Franchisees are free to operate either type of store, or both.
Typically, franchisees that have multiple locations own one full-service store and one or more retail-only location. The full-service store supports the retail-only units with remanufactured products. Each store model operates in the same manner as far as customers are concerned because Rapid Refill brand remanufactured products are already on the shelf. The only difference between the operating models is the physical location where the cartridges are remanufactured.
This unique approach (owing a combination of full-service and retail-only units) offers Rapid Refill franchisees the ability to build multiple units economically as retail-only stores can be opened for significantly less than full-service stores and have the same sales potential. Rapid Refill’s current growth strategy is focused on multi-unit development and, as a result, we expect to see a higher concentration of multi-unit franchisees as the system matures.
All Rapid Refill Ink franchisees are part of a family and given the tools and support they need to help them succeed!
