Mike Mancuso, Multi-unit franchise business owner of Cartridge World tells us why Cartridge World was the right choice for him and his family.
“I was an executive in the corporate world when I decided to start my own business. After extensively searching to purchase an ongoing small business, I decided on Cartridge World”.
He chose Cartridge World because of its retail and B2B markets, as well as business hours that corresponded to normal working hours. It was also the perfect business he could start with his son.
“I hired him as an intern during his junior and senior years, and then he came on full time after graduation. I purchased my first store in year one and then very quickly started a second location the next year. We purchased a third location four years later and assumed ownership of other store along the way”.
Mancuso finds the Cartridge World model works very well because of the ability to build an organization. “We employ sales personnel, technicians, retail personnel, drivers, marketing and admin personnel and operations managers. We have consistently been one of the top performing stores in the United States, and we are continuing to evolve into the printer solutions arena - which continues to grow”.
