PostNet Franchise Named in Top 100 by Franchise Gator
Franchise Gator ranks the iconic marketing services franchise as a best-bet investment on prestigious annual list
Franchise Gator recently published its prestigious annual list of Top 100 Franchises and once again named PostNet as a best-bet investment opportunity for entrepreneurs who want a proven business model with a long track record of innovation and success.
A go-to resource for franchise opportunities, Franchise Gator pores over hundreds of Franchise Disclosure Documents, conducts interviews with executive teams and analyzes franchise systems seeking a number of factors to help entrepreneurs determine which franchise systems are worthy brands for investment.
“At the core of it, franchising is about risk reduction,” Franchise Gator states. “You join a franchise because it provides a heightened chance of success as a business owner. The Top 100 has been designed, with the assistance of The Educated Franchisee, to measure the quality of a franchise system over time. Rankings are mostly based on a formula created from various pieces of the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) that focus on financial stability, growth, transparency, engagement, continuity and sustainability. Hundreds of FDDs were studied this past year in an effort to bring you this ranking.”
PostNet’s ranking of 41 out of 100 on Franchise Gator’s annual list comes hot on the heels of Entrepreneur magazine’s naming PostNet to its Franchise 500 list for the 23rd consecutive year. Entrepreneur has named PostNet a top franchise opportunity for every single year that we have been in business.
“We’re very honored to begin the year by being named a Top Franchise Opportunity by both Franchise Gator and Entrepreneur,” says Steve Greenbaum, CEO and co-founder of PostNet. “The role of a franchisor comes with significant responsibility. 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 co-founder and CEO and 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.”
What makes PostNet a Top Franchise Opportunity?
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 27.9 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,” Steve says. “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.
Leading marketing services franchise ramps up for nationwide expansion
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.”
