Our Canadian Franchise Opportunities
Fastway Couriers Canada commenced operations in 2003 and has since expanded across the Canadian landscape. On-going research continues to confirm that there is a strong demand for Fastway's low-cost delivery service which focuses on a niche market untapped by other operators.
The Fastway system is based on a simple pre-paid, flat-rate shipping label which eliminates the need for waybills, consignment notes or complicated account reconciliation. Fastway operates without surcharges and offers their customers shipping within their city at one low rate whether the package is an envelope or a 25KG box. The labels are colour-coded to designate, local, regional or national service at very competitive prices.
Regional and Courier Franchisees
A Regional Franchisee operates a depot which is the base of operations for the Fastway system within a metropolitan area. Regional Franchises have been awarded in many Canadian cities with others targeted for continued expansion completing the national network.
Regional Franchisees recruit and support a team of Courier Franchisees by providing business assistance and facilities necessary for the Courier Franchisees to operate their businesses.
Courier Franchisees are required in all cities. A good candidate for a Courier Franchise is, outgoing, friendly, physically fit, enthusiastic, and has a desire to succeed. This franchise will appeal to motivated men and women who are looking for an opportunity to be their own boss and make a good income without the need for prior business experience. Fastway’s niche is the ‘business to business’ market, therefore our franchisees operate Monday thru Friday and enjoy their evenings and weekends off.
Courier Franchisees receive perpetual franchise rights to an exclusive territory within a metropolitan area. There is a one time Franchise fee, which, unique to Fastway for over 20 years now, is guaranteed back to the franchisee as income. No further franchise fees are ever required and there are no royalties. Courier Franchisees receive one full week of classroom training, weekly support/business planning, monthly training sessions and field support.
