Background

The Gun Cleaners is structured as an "owner / operator" franchise. The Gun Cleaners uses a unique process for cleaning that does a more thorough job of cleaning your customers guns. Our trademarked Acculube is a fully synthetic (heavier than water) lubricant that is available only through The Gun Cleaners and provides excellent operation and long term protection of all firearms. It has the core business of cleaning guns, but adds complimentary revenue sources of gun selling, gun smithing, insurance restoration service, consignment, and more. It is designed to be ran entirely by a single operator, although during busy times they may supplement with added staff. The store needs to be approximately 1000 sq feet and in a high traffic, convenient and visible location. Generally we recommend that prime real estate is less important than visible and convenient to your customers travel patterns. They typical franchisee needs to have a passion for guns and experience with customer service. This is a customer service business.
