Business Breakdown: Mobile Document Shredding

Linkedin Post

We’re searching for our next business to acquire and while our recent focus has been more on accounting/ bookkeeping firms, this interesting little nugget popped up.

While I am no Michael Girdley, Codie Sanchez or Ben Kelly, I do review a ton of deals.

With that said, here’s my hot take on this document shredding business. I’ll preface it by saying that I’m not a big fan of being a franchisee which is what this one seems to be, but I DO really like this business model.

Here’s the good 👍🏻

Here’s the bad 👎🏻

The ugly 🙈

My questions:

My overall ranking on this one would be 🍩🍩/ 5 Doughnuts. There’s some potential with the business model but not sure if this particular deal is worth it.
