PostNet Franchise Comes to Stamford, Connecticut
The iconic marketing services franchise opens first Connecticut location as it ramps up for continued expansion across the Nutmeg State
After kicking off the year with exciting center openings in California, West Virginia and Georgia, the momentum behind the iconic PostNet franchise continues with the opening of our first-ever center in Connecticut.
PostNet, the leading marketing services franchise known for providing customized, business-enhancing print, marketing and shipping solutions to the millions of small businesses in North America and across the globe, has announced an aggressive expansion campaign that will see our brand growing in the United States and internationally. The opening of the newest location in Stamford, is only the beginning of PostNet in Connecticut. PostNet recently announced it is actively targeting the cities of Bridgeport, Stamford, Norwalk, Hartford and New Haven, for franchise growth. Over the next five years, PostNet expects to open 10 locations across these key target markets.
The first PostNet location in the state of Connecticut is owned by local printing expert and entrepreneur, Frank Scaturchio. It is a prime location in downtown Stamford, nearby two bustling shopping centers and hundreds of small businesses that will come to rely on PostNet’s professional solutions to keep them growing, ahead of the competition and open for years to come.
“PostNet continues to capture market share in the fragmented category of print, shipping, and marketing service providers,” says Frank, who has worked in the printing industry for more than 20 years. “Today’s businesses aren’t just looking for one service, but rather a comprehensive suite of consultative, personalized solutions for all of their printing, marketing and shipping needs.”
Small businesses rely on PostNet to succeed
In Connecticut, New England and beyond, the demand for new PostNet locations is bigger than ever before; economic trends show that entrepreneurs and independent contractors are on the rise in the American economy. There are 28 million small businesses in the U.S., and their spending is part of what generates the $380 billion annually that goes to printing, shipping and online marketing. PostNet is dedicated to serving those millions of small business owners — providing them with the tools and expertise to compete for customers.
“Our franchise partners understand the challenges and opportunities that are unique to small businesses in their communities because they are small business owners themselves,” says Steve Greenbaum, co-founder and CEO of PostNet. “Of course there are other providers that design, print and ship, but it’s our culture, the guidance and direction we provide small business owners, and the ongoing partnerships we build with customers that make the difference.”
Our full menu of services includes graphic design, full-service digital printing, direct mail, signage, document binding and finishing, and ancillary business services, like private mailbox rental and more. Unlike traditional postal and mailbox franchises, PostNet has strategic partnerships with all of the major logistics companies — UPS, FedEx, U.S. Postal Service and DHL — offering a multi-carrier selection coupled with in-center professional packaging services to meet the individual shipping needs of its customers. PostNet franchises have a physical storefront and an Online Print Center, offering customers the benefits of both online transactions and face-to-face service.
The time is now to bring PostNet to your community
PostNet recently announced plans to add 200 franchise locations to its network, a move that will propel the company’s footprint to nearly 900 locations across 10 countries. The brand currently has franchise opportunities available across the U.S. in markets such as Atlanta, Chicago, Charlotte and Miami, among others, as well as master franchise opportunities overseas.
“Our continued franchise growth in 2015 and impressive number of new centers scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2016 demonstrates the strong demand for our customized, business-enhancing services,” Steve says. “Innovation has, and will always, drive our company strategy, making us well-positioned to develop products and services that meet the changing needs of consumers and businesses. We will be growing for years to come.”
