Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
ACE is based in Irving, Texas and traded on NASDAQ under the symbol AACE. ACE is one of the nation’s largest owner, operator and franchiser of retail financial service stores. These stores offer convenient retail financial services, including check cashing, money order sales, MoneyGram wire transfer services, bill payment services, and pre-paid local and long distance telecommunications services. In addition, state regulated small consumer loans are offered to customers at various ACE company-owned stores. ACE has a total network of more than 1,203 stores in 36 states and the District of Columbia.
In February 1996, ACE Cash Express acquired Check Express and became the largest franchiser of check cashing and related financial services in the United States. Since that time, ACE has combined the strengths of both company and franchise operations to expand the ACE franchise program.
Today, ACE has 90 franchise owners operating 215 locations in 29 states. Together with 988 company-owned stores across 36 states and the District of Columbia, ACE operates twice as many retail centers as our nearest competitor. As the industry leader, ACE shares strategic partnerships with Travelers Express, MoneyGram, and others to significantly reduce operating expenses as compared to independent operations.
