PostNet Opens New Location in Altamonte Springs, Florida
Design, print, and shipping franchise has nearly 700 centers globally
Husband and wife team Steve and Katie Eisenberg have opened a PostNet location in Altamonte Springs, Florida. Their Neighborhood Business Center is one of an international network of design, print, and shipping franchises, and opportunities with PostNet continue to grow.
Steve has more than 25 years of retail leadership experience, most recently serving as District Manager for GameStop in the local area. Always aspiring to be in business for himself, he decided opening a PostNet franchise with his wife was the perfect way to fulfill his dream, while helping other business owners grow.
The Altamonte Springs center caters to small business owners, to employees who work from home, and to busy consumers. The franchise offers a number of digital printing, document finishing, and professional packaging services, as well as freedom of choice for the customer as an authorized shipping outlet for FedEx, UPS, DHL, and the U.S. Postal Service.
“We’re here to provide superior service to our customers for all their design, print, copy and shipping services that are essential to the success of start-ups and current small businesses in our area,” Steve says. “It’s rewarding to know that we are helping to build economic prosperity in the Altamonte Springs area by supporting entrepreneurism.”
PostNet Neighborhood Business Centers make life easier for local businesses by providing graphic design, marketing, printing, and logistics solutions that help them reach and win more customers. The range of services offered makes them unique, as does the personal business relationship that franchisees are able to offer fellow entrepreneurs in their communities.
PostNet thrives due to personal business relationships
“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.”
Entrepreneurs and independent contractors are on the rise in the American economy, and PostNet provides them with the tools and expertise to compete for customers. There are 27.9 million small businesses in the U.S., and their spending is part of what generates the $380 million annually that goes to printing, shipping, and online marketing. PostNet franchise opportunities continue to attract those who want to own their own business.
PostNet is a great brand for extroverts who like to meet people and are willing to pitch their services, Steve says. It’s a good family business with normal business hours, and it is innovative and ever-evolving.
The opening of the Florida center is part of the continued growth of the global brand, including an acquisition made earlier this year by Aramex of the master PostNet franchise in South Africa. To date, PostNet has nearly 700 centers open across nine countries. Domestically, PostNet has expanded in Atlanta; San Antonio, San Diego, Winston-Salem, North Carolina; Washington D.C.; Minneapolis; Dallas; and Orlando over the past year, and the brand is targeting Europe, Asia, and Mexico for international growth in 2015.
