$5,590,180 Average Gross Revenue For Top Performing Stores. $1,006,555 Average Net Income For Top Stores!

Warehouse store model.

Customer walks in the door and they KNOW we didn't spend a lot of money making the store pretty. Open format with large footprint 20k-25k sq ft. All inventory is in stock for same day delivery. This is a HUGE differentiator. No other retail furniture company actually stocks inventory. We are lower priced than our competitors because we have significantly lower number of SKU's. This allows us to drive deeper on purchasing power with the factories. 90% of our merchandise is US MADE! This is a big difference vs the competition. AND we beat them on price every day.

75% of investment is inventory NOT buildout. Easy to open, very scalable. ALL of our franchise owners are multi unit owners, this is not a requirement, but is what naturally happens. Manager operated (and the manager is on commission only. This is normal in the furniture industry. We attract executive level owners because of how the business is operated and the strong Item 19. Very strong unit economics.

EverLine Coatings and Services provides a much-needed solution for property owners and managers who are looking for a professional line striping and pavement maintenance service provider.

Pavement is everywhere. Almost every single building has a parking lot. All of it needs to be maintained regularly or else it will deteriorate – causing astronomical repair costs and significant liability risks. In addition, a 2017 study showed that 68% of shoppers strongly agree that the parking lot was the influencing factor that attracted them to particular retail centers.

A safe and well-maintained parking lot affects shoppers' decisions to visit the property as opposed to others, and it also increases the patrons spend at the location and total time spent at the mall. It pays to keep parking lots maintained. Not only does EverLine make the parking lots look fantastic, we add additional value by delivering a Preventative Pavement Maintenance Program. This maximizes the ROI for our clients by treating pavement as an asset – a fresh approach that is increasing the life of asphalt by up to 100% - doubling the lifetime value.

EverLine serves our clients as a full-service pavement maintenance company. We professionally complete line striping, asphalt repair, sealcoating, and crack-filling. In addition, we complete various parking lot services such as custom stenciling (branding), power washing and parking lot accessory installation such as speed bumps, parking blocks, signs and more. Virtually all public and private property owners & managers with existing asphalt assets require these services regularly.

Through our EverFloor Durable Systems brand division, we also provide interior floor coating applications for safety lines, slip resistant and protective epoxy floor coatings in industrial centers.

Fastest Labs is the first and only drug, alcohol and DNA testing franchise in the United States that is non-medical and operates as a brick and mortar opportunity. Fastest Labs is already the number one fastest growing drug testing franchise in this industry, with over 70 physical franchise locations and thousands of drug tests conducted each year.

We see clients within 5 minutes rather than a typical 1 hour wait at a medical facility.

LabFusion, our proprietary drug testing technology, reads and immediately reports a client’s drug test results in a confidential portal (rather than 1-3 days) enabling Fastest Labs to be an industry disrupter. We offer a Clean, Fast, and Affordable testing experience with the professionalism and comfort of dealing with a nationally branded entity that is locally owned and operated. Low start-up costs, high margins, 9-5 banker’s hours, minimal staffing and square footage requirements, and thorough Franchisee training make a FastestLabs drug testing franchise extremely appealing.

Having started franchising in October 2010, Fastest Labs is now servicing over 70 markets in over 24 states. We are a franchise company built by Franchisees, for Franchisees. Our Founders, Dave and LeDona Clafin, have over 28 years of experience as franchise owners of two other service based franchise businesses. They understand what it is like to be a Franchisee from a startup owner operator to a Franchisor. This is a unique strength that few Franchisors have as a skill set.

Fastest Labs has a proven client acquisition system utilizing Zoom Info and Engage CRM. We provide customized proprietary incoming and outgoing sales guides developed in-house and also utilize Scorpion for digital marketing to acquire customers. We have relationships with national laboratories such as CRL, Quest, DNA Diagnostics, DNA Solutions, Alere and many more developed by the franchisor. This offers us group buying power that provides a lower cost of goods on high-quality testing kits, branded materials and lab related services necessary for this industry.

POKE is trending up quickly and has been since 2016 according to Yelp.

Island Fin Poke is a Hawaiian-style poke restaurant that was established in 2016. It transports you from every day to a surf shack on the beach. From their homemade sauces and 25 toppings, to their sustainably sourced fish, you will be tasting the flavors of the islands - every time you visit.

We are committed to a growth strategy that is resolute to the long-term success of our franchisees. Dedicated to the highest standards of intelligent investment, we have strategically created small, uncluttered yet cohesive restaurant design. Island Fin locations are carefully engineered to be low investments and range in size from 900 to 1500 square feet. Our small kitchens with limited cooking allow us to allocate a higher percentage of the space to the consumer space, therefore our restaurants are capable of exceptional revenue.

You can choose to own a single unit franchise which allows you to operate your own Island Fin Poke Company in a protected territory of your choice.
