Overview

P.A.S.S. Packaging And Shipping Specialists

What sets your P.A.S.S. store apart from the Post Office and other packing and mailing businesses?
The answer lies mainly in the fact that P.A.S.S. is not a traditional franchise.  This gives you a great deal of choice in how you set up and run your store.  You can choose your store’s name, its equipment, and furnishings.  And more importantly, we’ll help you customize your store’s products and  services to meet the specific needs of your community.  You’ll choose from a wide range of possible offerings, including:

  • Packing and Mailing
  • eBay Trading Assistants
  • Full-Service Copying and Printing
  • Fax Services
  • Mailbox Rentals
  • Sony Picture Station
  • Retail Specialty Gifts
  • ...and More

What you do
Packing And Mailing...
is the core of your business.  As simple as this may seem, it's what forms the nucleus of your operation and brings in the majority of your customers.  Just like the post office, you supply stamps; but in addition, you provide envelopes, cartons, packaging materials, and more.  You offer custom/specialty packaging services, enabling the customer to simply bring in the item to be shipped.
You do the work for them, and you make money.

What We Do
The advantage of launching your P.A.S.S. store is that we have already completed the hardest tasks for you: finding a way to fulfill a need; learning  how to market that concept; finding the proper suppliers; knowing what to charge; and obtaining the necessary skills.  You don't need to spend years  and many thousands of dollars learning what works and what doesn't.  You can get right to the job of running your own business.

  • Fulfilling A Need -
    The only way to succeed in business is to satisfy a need.  But identifying the right need is not easy.  For some, the market may be too small to lead to  profitability.  Or there may be obstacles that aren't apparent until it's too late.  Your P.A.S.S. store eliminates this concern.

  • Marketing the Concept -
    How much advertising is enough?  What media works best?  What groups should you target?  What services do they want?  These are the questions we can answer.  There's no need to waste money experimenting.  We'll help you make informed decisions.

  • Finding The Right Suppliers -
    Obtaining quality materials at fair prices is crucial to the success of your business.  We offer national discounts from our suppliers.  We'll show you where to go, what to buy, and how much you should pay.

There aren't really any secrets to success in business.  The time-proven formula of offering a quality product at a fair price with outstanding service is what will make a P.A.S.S. store work for you.

Naming Your Store
Packaging and Shipping Specialists (P.A.S.S.) has been around for many years.  You may think you have never heard of us before, but chances are, you have.

We are a company that has opened hundreds of stores around the world.

Stores such as:  Pack 'N' Mail, Boxes 'N' More, Postal Plus, Pack 'N' Ship, Package Plus, to name a few.

We allow you to use our name or help you select a name for your store location.  Whether using your name or ours, by choosing to go with Packaging and Shipping Specialists, you will be choosing the right company to set you on the road to success!

No Royalties!
Our company has never charged a royalty fee, which, or course, makes us different from our competitors.   We assure that you will get as good or better support from us and you will not keep paying these extra fees that can range from $500 to $2500 per month.

Most mail and parcel centers that pay royalties average paying $17,500 per year.  This can go into your bank account instead of theirs.   We will keep you updated with the latest equipment and technology in our industry.   You’ll also take advantage of our 800 hotline, quarterly newsletters, advertising slicks, national accounts with all major shipping companies, national discounts with major suppliers, and much more.  We will support you so we can use you as a reference for our future growth.

Testimonials

"We chose to buy into P.A.S.S because, although it’s a franchise, we do not have to pay a monthly franchise fee. We also have the choice to change or add any service or product to our business as we feel. P.A.S.S. has been around for years, they offer quality service and quality products to their customers, a great training program, and a wonderful support team. The level of support P.A.S.S. has given us has been more than we could ask for. We have never felt belittled because of questions we’ve had, or hurried from training we received. When there has been a problem, P.A.S.S. has dealt with it efficiently. What we like most about being a franchisee is the amount of support we receive from P.A.S.S., and the fact that they don’t tell us we must have this or must do that. They suggest and we choose.”Tim and Rhonda Vesterfelt , Michigan
“For as long as I can remember, owning a business was at the top of my priority list. As a child, I began laying the groundwork for success by selling and trading merchandise for the elders in my village. Once I arrived in America, my desires became even stronger. One day in 1988, I was reading a magazine and I saw a brochure on becoming a P.A.S.S. storeowner. This was when I decided to take the first step in making my dreams come true. Having no experience with this type of business, I took a leap of faith and contacted Mike Gallagher, president of P.A.S.S. He made me more determined to give it a try, and as it turned out, it was a great investment. When I first got started with this business, it seemed like I was destined to fail. But through hard work and determination, everything came together. Mike has been a mentor and a great source of support to me. He gave me the courage and will to keep aiming for success. Under his guidance, my dream was finally realized. This business has been good to me and for me. I successfully opened my second P.A.S.S. store in 1998. I can honestly say to any beginner that investing with this company can bring far greater rewards than the risks. I encourage you to take a chance, especially with a mentor like Mike Gallagher.”Shiufong Lynn Thomas , Nevada
“Working with Mike Gallagher, the president of P.A.S.S., has been a very positive experience from the first time we spoke on the telephone. Mike is very open and direct. He’s also very knowledgeable and passionate about the industry and his company. It’s not hard to see why he has been working in the mail and parcel industry for so long. The support was evident from the beginning. P.A.S.S. helped locate a store site, negotiate a lease, prepare a business plan, work with the financial institutions to procure a loan, and more. The training we received was excellent and helped us start our operation with minimal issues. The continual support is great as well. After you are open and operating, and concerns arise, you can call Mike anytime and he’ll help. If you’re thinking of opening your own mail and parcel center, I would advise you to seriously consider P.A.S.S. to help you get started. They have over 25 years of experience, and 700+ stores opened around the country. And the best part…NO CONTINUOUS ROYALTIES! Mike, thanks for all your help and continuous support!”Mark and MaryAnn Romanelli , Texas
“We chose P.A.S.S. because there were no royalties, they were affordable, and they offered nationwide name recognition. We had flexibility on advice offered. They offered one-on-one expert training. The level of support is 100%.” Darrick and Gwen Johnson , Arizona
