CARSON CITY, Nev., Sept. 27 -- QuikDrop International announced today that Susan Mell has been granted area development rights to open 24 QuikDrop eBay drop-off stores in areas including Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota, Fort Meyers and Naples. The first QuikDrop retail store will open in Tampa this December.
"Susan`s extensive experience in franchising and retail operations in Florida is a giant asset to our team of Area Developers," says Murray Mead, President of QuikDrop International.
QuikDrop eBay drop-off stores provide an easy way for anyone to list their items on eBay simply and conveniently. New or used items with a value of $50 or more can be dropped off at any QuikDrop location where they are photographed and placed on eBay. Once sold, QuikDrop handles the payment and shipping details with the winning bidder. The customer receives a check in the mail for the full amount of the sale, less a commission to QuikDrop.
"I successfully got in on the ground-floor of the cellular phone business in Florida in the early 1980s and rode the wave," said Ms. Mell. "The eBay drop-off store franchise model that QuikDrop has developed has similar or greater potential."
QuikDrop pioneered the eBay drop-off store franchise business model and was the first company to obtain state approval to operate eBay drop-off store franchises in the United States. QuikDrop opened the very first eBay drop-off store franchise in August 2003. Since that time, eighteen QuikDrop locations have opened in nine states. Franchise contracts are currently in place to open over 500 stores in the United States and 100 stores internationally. QuikDrop is the largest and fastest growing chain of stores specializing in selling products on eBay for third parties in the United States. QuikDrop is the only eBay drop-off store franchise operating locations overseas.
