PostNet Printing, Marketing and Shipping Franchise

The premier printing, marketing and shipping solutions franchise specializes in helping small businesses thrive around the world

PostNet has evolved from a humble pack-and-ship business into a forward-thinking printing, marketing and shipping franchise that specializes in providing professional, business-enhancing solutions to the 28 million small businesses in the United States and the millions more around the globe.

store-exterior1Since PostNet began franchising in 1993, the brand has grown to nearly 660 locations across 9 countries, close to 250  of which are in the United States. Over two decades after we launched our proven business model, PostNet is even stronger. In 2017, PostNet became part of the global family of MBE Worldwide*. Combined, the two companies have an extensive reach of nearly 2,300 locations in 33 countries around the world. PostNet is driven by a visionary leadership team with a commitment to innovation through technology and a culture that seeks to ensure our franchise owners are profitable and are supported every step in their journey in becoming successful small business owners in their communities.

“The role of a franchisor comes with significant responsibility,” says Brian Spindel, President and COO of PostNet. “People come into this organization every day from around the world. Our job is to help them be successful and ensure that their experience and relationships with the PostNet franchise family add value on all levels. As the person who drives the strategic vision, making sure that our franchisees succeed is of paramount importance to me. Our franchisees invest real money, real heart and real soul — some of them leave careers — in the desire to improve their lives. We truly care about everyone and everything the PostNet brand touches”

Costs and Fees

PostNet is a low-cost investment opportunity with a proven business model that offers the potential for high returns. The total investment necessary to begin operation of a PostNet franchise ranges from $174,767 to $217,275. PostNet owners start with a minimum of $60,000 liquid capital, and the rest of the franchise cost is leasing packages, equipment purchases and business loans.

Compared with other printing franchises, PostNet boasts a substantially smaller investment and a potentially quicker return on investment. For starters, the initial cash outlay is well below $200,000. The reason for this is simple: unlike other printing franchises, PostNet doesn’t require substantial investments in printing technology or machinery. PostNet has made the business model easier to run by establishing relationships with industry-leading companies to outsource many of our franchise owners’ printing needs. This gives the franchisees a wide range of service capabilities, without the expense and experience needed to manage said equipment. This added benefit allows PostNet to be able to attract and partner with franchise owners who are passionate about their local small business communities, rather than solely those with prior printing experience.

Meet Our Franchisees

"I was watching 'Undercover Boss' with Steve Greenbaum, and I knew that PostNet was going to be a good business to get into. I wanted to be in a business that would allow me to work at home and to be close to my family. PostNet gave me the opportunity to be independent, to problem solve and provide solutions for my customers. One of the reasons we decided to open a center was to provide a legacy for our children. It's a great experience to be an entrepreneur with PostNet." - Mark Nunn, PostNet franchise owner in Atlanta, Georgia

“The perfect candidate for a successful PostNet franchise owner is someone who has discovered the entrepreneurial bug. They want to taste small business ownership for themselves, to make their own schedule and take control of their own time. In many cases, it could be a career change but retirees also find success with the PostNet franchise." - Kevin Center, PostNet franchise owner in Atlanta, Georgia

“PostNet was an opportunity for me to work for myself and to provide a better life for my family. It also gave me an opportunity to work alongside my wife. When we opened, we wanted to break even in 18 months and we were able to reach our goal a whole lot sooner. We've opened our third center, and we feel confident that we can open as many stores as we like as long as we nurture good leadership." - Greg Howard, PostNet franchise owner in Houston, Texas
