Benefits of the PostNet Franchise Business Model
Helping Others Succeed
The key thing to understand about the PostNet business model is that helping others succeed is at the foundation of everything we do, and it’s how our franchise owners lead every interaction. We offer services that help local entrepreneurs create, grow, and manage their businesses — including a wide range of printing services, packing and shipping, graphic design, private mailboxes, virtual mail, notary services, and much more. You can find more information about our services here. We like to say, when our customers succeed, so do we! And as a franchise organization, each individual center in our network contributes to the success of the whole.
Many different paths lead to PostNet. Our franchise owners come from all walks of life: well-versed entrepreneurs, first-time professionals, veterans, minorities, families, retirees, and anything in between. Because of the wide array of backgrounds, our franchise owners are able to connect more deeply with their communities. In fact, they are a part of the community, so they know what it means to have the support of other members. Lifting each other up is key to a successful business.
Our franchisees tell us that this is one of the most rewarding aspects of being a PostNet entrepreneur: the relationships you form, the satisfaction of being the go-to person in your community, and the pride you take in knowing that others are able to pursue their dreams because of you!
Meeting B2B and B2C Needs
We take great pride in our ability to adapt to any project, no matter the size. However, we are very proud to say that we love to support small businesses. Many of our franchise owners have deep and long relationships with other local small businesses. These B2B projects are engaging for our franchisees and keep them on their toes. Our owners take pride in solving problems, creating loyal repeat customers in the process, and becoming a go-to partner for everything from shipping to printing.
In addition to serving business customers (B2B), we are also here to help individuals with their smaller-scale printing, shipping, and design needs. This could mean carefully packing a delicate gift for shipment to a distant loved one (and helping to choose the shipping carrier and service that will best meet their timeline and budget). It could mean designing and printing wedding invitations for their big day. Or it could mean helping them keep their packages safe from porch pirates by receiving and securely holding deliveries on their behalf. Whatever our local communities need, they know that they can turn to PostNet for solutions! No two days at PostNet are ever the same — which makes being a franchise owner in our organization such an engaging and exciting career.
Another element to the PostNet business model, which makes it so accessible to entrepreneurs from a wide range of backgrounds, is the partnerships we are able to leverage as an organization. With such a wide range of services, it can be overwhelming to think of running a business when you may not know everything about each aspect. But you don’t need to be a printing expert to become a PostNet franchise owner!
Due to strong, network-wide relationships with the industry’s leading vendors, we are able to fulfill just about any request from our customers — without requiring specialized in-house equipment or extensive production knowledge. All that’s required is a can-do attitude and a willingness to explore creative solutions! We solve problems, that’s what we do! We will find a way to fulfill a client’s request. Our eagerness to build relationships and partnerships doesn’t stop with our customers, it extends to our community of like-minded businesses as well. That’s how we are able to continue operating if we don’t have the equipment or the know-how to get a job done well.
Additionally, all PostNet entrepreneurs have the power of our network at their disposal. Our community of franchise owners is something special — we all share a genuine interest in supporting our peers. Entrepreneurs frequently reach out to one another to share best practices, recommend vendors, and ask one another questions. As a part of the PostNet family, you’re never on your own!
