Urning A Living

ConsumerCasket USA stores aren't as ubiquitous as Starbucks--yet. But as the population continues to age, who knows? Founded by a former funeral director, the 3-year-old company sells caskets, urns and other funeral-related products directly to consumers through retail locations, catalogs and the Internet, eliminating the outrageous price markups often charged by funeral homes.

Total start-up costs average $200,000. For more information, call (800) 480-9675 or visit http://www.consumercasket-usa.com.
