In this episode, guest host Angela Coté talks to David Druker, president of The UPS Store Canada to discuss its recent successes and vast achievements as an iconic brand within the franchise community. The UPS Store Canada is a new national sponsor for the Canadian Franchise Association (CFA), and recently received the Hall of Fame Award in the CFA’s 2021 Recognition Awards for its active and immersed participation with the CFA, including in mentoring, speaking events, lead generation opportunities, and David’s time serving on the board of directors.
As a mature franchise system that was founded in 1980 in the U.S. and arrived in Canada in 1988, The UPS Store Canada has just under 360 open/operating units, with 15 set to open throughout 2022.

- The history of The UPS Store and how he came to join the franchise system through a chance encounter while vacationing down south
- What products and services The UPS Store Canada offers and how that’s evolved and adapted throughout the decades
