Industry Performance

Why Choose Us?

It isn't difficult to figure out that franchising is a big business. Just take a walk around any mall or look down any street in a business district. Recent research conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers for the International Franchise Association's Educational Foundation reveals that franchised businesses are providing direct career opportunities for more than 9 million Americans and the 760,000-plus franchised businesses are responsible for more than $1.5 trillion in retail sales as reported by Chain Store Age Magazine.

However, you may be asking yourself what this has got to do with you? Well, maybe general economic conditions, mergers or acquisitions or other financial conditions have you taking stock of your career and considering other options. Or maybe it's just time for a new career or a second career. Whatever the reason, there is no better opportunity to be your boss and control your life than owning and operating an upscale retail store like Paper Affair.

We offer you the opportunity to get into business for yourself but not by yourself. As a franchisee, you will be investing your assets in a business and sharing a brand, and its operational format of success.

We have a proven business model that will increase your chances of success and we are there to support your everyday challenges.

Purchasing a Paper Affair Franchise
