McDonald’s opened their first restaurant in 1940 and their first franchised store followed in 1955. They now have over 30,000 restaurants in 199 countries.
How many people in Punta Gorda Florida over the years have regretted the fact that they didn’t start a SW Florida McDonald’s franchise when the company was young or buy shares when it went public in 1965?
Well Beyond Corp, producers of XO antioxidant chocolate, is the industry leader in healthy chocolate. Though Well Beyond is only a few years old, the company is financially sound, debt free, and growing robustly.
Well Beyond’s success in Punta Gorda Florida is even more remarkable when you consider the Punta Gorda economic climate of the past few years. Well Beyond is a direct marketing company with independent XO members in Punta Gorda and North Port and around the world. XO is currently the most recognizable brand of healthy chocolate and continually receives favorable press.
I am an independent XO member in Punta Gorda. I don’t think it’s unrealistic to believe that Well Beyond Chocolate will become as dominant in the healthy chocolate industry as McDonald’s is in the fast-food industry.
To continue the McDonald’s comparison: initially, McDonald’s did not create a new product; they sold ordinary hamburgers and fries in a new way (-the McMuffin and McRib came later). Well Beyond has created an extraordinary new product; actually, a whole new category –antioxidant healthy chocolate.
Well Beyond produces food and beverages that improve your health. In fact, if you have been eating SW Florida burgers for the past twenty years, you really need some XO antioxidants!
Becoming a Port Charlotte XO chocolate member is far easier than purchasing any kind of franchise. The start-up costs are low and you don’t need to make a significant investment in inventory. Once you get going, you won’t be crippled by overhead because you can work out of your Punta Gorda home.
When I was introduced to XO chocolate in SW Florida, I recognized a sure bet. If you let this Punta Gorda business opportunity pass you by, there will come a time when you’ll kick yourself for passing it up.
