Avis is open for an extension of its successful global team (not a franchise). The company is giving a tremendous opportunity to supervise all aspects of an Avis off-airport location, impact our customers’ service experience, and supplement you bottom line. You will be an independent operator, responsible for the growth and success of an Avis location. You will be hiring your own employees, market your operation, and promote the world-renowned Avis “We Try Harder” values. There’s no need to make an initial major investment, and no limit to how much revenue you could generate.
When looking to start any business it is important, particularly considering today’s market, that you look for specific ways to cut minimize or reduce overhead and risk. Any business is going to have risk, but it is important to have a full understanding of the amount of investment, start-up cost and “ROI” (Return on Investment).
Most people are not aware that 80% of ALL franchise endeavours fail in the first two to five years leaving large debts looming for years thereafter.
