PostNet Franchise Named Top 100 Global Franchise
Franchise Direct ranks the premier marketing services franchise the No. 74 franchise opportunity in the world
Franchise Direct, one of the nation’s top franchise directories, has ranked PostNet as the No. 74 franchise opportunity in the world. This comes hot on the heels of being named a best-bet opportunity by both Franchise Gator and Entrepreneur magazine.
The annual “Top 100 Global Franchise” list is assembled by Franchise Direct using thoughtfully measured criteria to analyze thousands of franchise opportunities around the world. Franchise Direct aims for an objective determination, “using a methodology that goes far beyond system size and financial performance, the ranking is compiled by taking a host of criteria, giving each criterion a weighted value.” PostNet’s inclusion on this prestigious list puts the iconic B2B franchise in grand company, sharing the list with nationally known brands such as McDonald’s, Wyndham Hotels and Resorts and Taco Bell, to name a few.
“We’re very honored to have been named as a Top 100 Global Franchise,” 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 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 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 the only brand capable of serving those millions of small business owners — providing them with the tools and expertise to compete for customers.
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 franchisees have a physical storefront in their communities and an Online Print Center, offering customers the benefits of both online transactions and face-to-face service.
“Whether entrepreneurs are looking for printing, shipping or marketing solutions, PostNet is filling the void for convenient services that are essential to the success of small businesses,” says Roy Chou, who recently opened a PostNet franchise in Fullerton, California. His opening was featured in an article published by OC Small Business. “We are looking forward to supporting the growing Fullerton business community.”
PostNet continues to rapidly expand at home and abroad
In 2015, PostNet opened 15 new locations across the country, including several in the bustling urban cities of Atlanta, Miami, Austin, Washington D.C., Dallas, Minneapolis and San Diego, and one on the West Virginia University campus, bringing the total number of U.S. locations to more than 260. The brand also expanded its network of international centers to nearly 400 locations.
PostNet is scheduled to open eight new centers in the first quarter of 2016, one of which will mark our first location in the state of Connecticut. Throughout the year, PostNet will continue executing its strategic growth plan, expanding the brand into untapped and existing markets domestically and 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.”
