One of our youngest franchisees, is Vu Ba Viet, 25 years old, who owns a franchise in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. We caught up with him recently to find out more about his journey with InXpress so far.
I studied International Economics at University and decided to go into franchising after my studies because it offers a proven system and therefore the opportunity to be a successful business owner – even without any previous management experience.
I chose an InXpress franchise because of the global coverage and partnership with the largest courier in the world – DHL Express. I had previously worked for the first InXpress franchisee in Vietnam as a salesman, so I also understood and believed in the model.
I now employ three people – two sales people and a customer service representative.
Although it took around two years to break-even, the business is now doing very well. In the last three months, my average gross margin has been 8000 USD which is amazing especially, when the average monthly salary in Vietnam is 500 USD.
Owning my own business means that I have more free time and money for myself and my family. I plan to buy a car soon which not many people in Vietnam can do. My goal for the future is simple – to keep growing the business!
