QUESTIONS

Who is our           customer base?
Our customers consist anyone  owning a pick-up, SUV, or any  automobile in general with          accessory needs.  Because most  accessory purchases occur in the first six months of ownership of the vehicle,  the new  and used car dealers are an important part of our business as well as contractors, body shops, and municipalities.

What type of sales revenues should I  anticipate?
Depending on whether you purchase a full retail store or an       Accessory Outlet Center, monthly sales are from $10,000 up to as high as $150,000.  Our  franchisees are independent business people and income is based on their       entrepreneurial talents and abilities.

How much inventory will I need?
Depending on the program you   participate in the inventory levels will vary.  Accessory Outlet Centers will have initial inventories of $10,000 to $15,000  where as a start-up Pick-Em Up Truck Store will have an inventory of $30,000 to $35,000.


Where do I buy the inventory?

Inventory is purchased directly from manufactures and warehouse        distributors with pre negotiated pricing programs.  We have access to over 40 warehouses in 17 different states across the country allowing us to receive inventory coast to coast in five days or as  little as same day delivery depending on the location of the product at the time of order.

What type of facility do I need?
Stand alone Pick-Em Up Truck Stores will require anywhere from 2,500 to 5,500 square feet with 1/3 of that being showroom and the remainder being shop and installation space.  With an Accessory Outlet Center  already operating in an existing   automotive facility, the requirement would be 500 to 1,000 square feet of showroom and access to one or more           installation bays.

How many employees will I need?
A dedicated counter sales person is essential.  Also, one or two installation technicians are recommended to install the accessories. Depending on the volume of the  particular location,  one or two additional employees may be needed to assist in both areas.
