This is a safety technology company. Our niche is preventing slip-fall accidents on hard surface floors - something I didn’t really think about before I gained personal experience with this. Some time ago the my wife slipped, instantly went down hard, and ended up suffering head and facial injuries. This was very traumatic and scary for her, and as it turns out - preventable. Slip-fall accidents cause more than 21,000 deaths a year in North America, and costs are over $80 million a day in claims, along with lost time at work, and rehab. A huge issue and largely unknown to most people unless they or a loved one have experienced a fall.
The company is named the Global Floor Safety Network (GFSN). We have developed a chemical treatment (not a coating) for almost any hard surface, making it much less likely that someone will slip. The products and services included in this sale are only available through this distributorship. Business owners can’t purchase any of what we offer through traditional retail outlets. Because of this there is very little competition. It’s proprietary, proven (for over 20 years), and government-approved (even for use in food handling areas). The current markets are hotel lobbies, restaurants, public swimming pools, lobbies of office buildings, banks, assisted-living facilities, and condos.
GFSN’s business model is similar to a franchise but this is not a franchise for sale and there are no royalties. We sell licenses (somewhat like a franchise fee) for exclusive “territories”, i. e. a city, county, region, or state that grants the right to sell and apply the treatment solutions within that territory. There are no ongoing royalties or fees and licensees benefit from all sales made in their territory including national accounts (think of McDonald's). The margins are outstanding, it’s a very simple business to operate - and it saves lives, reduces injuries, and can lower insurance costs; anywhere there are people, hard surfaces, and water.
We are looking for additional licensees in the US or Canada. We believe that there are 3 ideal candidates for this business:
1. People that are thinking about or have already retired from corporate life, the military, fire/police/civil service, and are not ready to stop working entirely. This business is almost risk-free, has a low cost of entry, and is very simple and easy to run, either full-time or part-time.
2. Owners of companies that sell complementary products and services that may be interested in adding an additional, high-margin income stream to their business. These companies would include tiling companies, contractors, commercial cleaning companies, and pool companies.
3. Entrepreneurs that want to run a business in a massive market, earn great margins and help thousands of people.
