    Over the next two weeks, we are talking about dadpreneurs and franchising. Recent studies have shown that in the past 10 years, the number of work-from-home dads has more than doubled.

Our first guest will be Rick Werner of Unishippers. And Rick Werner owns a Unishippers franchise, a third party shipping adviser for small to mid-sized businesses. He has been in business since January and works from home, building his business while serving as the primary caretaker for his 18 month-old daughter. He and his wife live in Auburn, AL

  • Unishippers Franchise Opportunity

    in Business

    From humble beginnings to a nearly $400 million dollar company,
    Unishippers has never lost its focus.

    In 1987, four entrepreneurs had an idea for helping small and
    medium-sized businesses save money on their shipping: consolidate all of
    their shipments under one account in order to receive discounts similar to
    those of large companies. With just one partner and one product (U.S.
    express), this simple concept of aggregate shipping took hold. And when
    85 customers came on board in the first month alone, the Utah Shippers
    Association was born. More than 25 years later, that common sense
    business model has grown into Unishippers – but the focus of giving
    smaller businesses discounts and services they can't get on their own is
    still the same.

    Unishippers was the very first reseller of complete shipping services in the U.S.
    and this straightforward concept has proven to be an inspired business strategy.
