My first location was installed about March 15, 2012, and I have organically grown since then to 18 locations. My best locations are Convenient Stores, Tag Offices or DMV, I have 1 Truck Stop that is cash only, 1 Hospital, 1 Motel, and the rest are Sports Bars, Restaurants, or Clubs. I am working on my local City Services for new locations such as Animal Control Services (Dog Pound) is cash only and they are building a new facility, so that is a possible ATM location.
I attended training on November 20th 2013 and by the end of this month, July 2014, I will have a total of thirteen ATMs in operation (seven via acquisitions and six organic/corporate leads). My goal was to have ten ATMs by the end of the year so I am more than happy with the growth thus far. I have followed the system to the letter!
Jeff Kerr and the ACFN team have created a well thought out business model with all of the necessary support mechanisms. Personally, I take comfort in the fact that I’m executing a plan that was incredibly successful for Jeff in the past. To be successful now, all I need to do is tilize the umbrella and execute the plan.
I became a franchisee in May of 2013 after being introduced to ACFN by a close friend who is a very successful franchisee. When my wife and I decided to relocate from Las Vegas back to our home state of Pennsylvania, I decided to take my friend’s advice and follow my dream of owning my own business by joining ACFN. In just under a year, I have organically grown my business to five locations with several more leads progressing, and I am extremely satisfied with the support that I have received from ACFN and confident about the continued growth of my ATM business.
