If i buy a courier franchise, do i need to do the courier work myself?
Not all courier franchises require you to physically be the courier. There are many courier franchises that allow you to manage the business i.e. management franchise opportunities.
If you search for courier franchises, a good start may be the Franchise Council of Australia website, and then contact them for a prospectus, it should clearly tell you the different franchise types they have available. Many may start as a “man in a van franchise” but allow you to build the business to many vans with you managing it whist others do the physical courier work.
