PostNet Franchise Owners Reinvest in the Brand
Iconic printing and marketing franchise announces second team of owners to sign on to open new PostNet location
Franchise owners have a unique perspective on whether their investment into a franchise system has paid off. They run their businesses through the highs and lows of the economy, and then they either sell their businesses for a profit, pass the stores down as a legacy to others or decide to reinvest in their franchise.
Apolonio Cedeno and Ramon Heredia, who bought an existing PostNet franchise in Coral Springs, Florida, six months ago, just opened a second PostNet franchise in Lauderhill last week. That news comes hot on the heels of another veteran PostNet franchise owner preparing to open a second location in New York City.
“We are so pleased that our business model has given Apolonio and Ramon the ability to prosper in their careers as entrepreneurs,” says Steve Greenbaum, co-founder and CEO of PostNet. “Apolonio and Ramon’s combined experience and unwavering work ethic, coupled with the strong operational team they have assembled, has been instrumental to their success. Not to mention, they have a strong passion for the brand and its purpose — to help others succeed. The sky’s the limit for these two. We look forward to seeing great things from them in the future.”
PostNet is an iconic brand guided by an unwavering commitment to the success of small businesses
Small businesses are integral to the success of the American economy, and PostNet is a brand that is committed to helping entrepreneurs turn their dreams of small business ownership into reality.
For Apolonio and Ramon, PostNet has been their chance to take ownership of their future and become meaningful members of their community. The pair owns two PostNet franchises in Broward County, Florida, and are already planning to open more locations.
“One of the things we’re most proud of in our lives is that we were working corporate jobs in
Venezuela, and now we’re independent business owners in America,” Apolonio says with great
pride. “We are thrilled to open our second PostNet center here in Broward County and continue
to nurture the success of the local business community.”
While the PostNet leadership team and our network of franchises are united in their commitment to the success of their peers and of the brand as a whole, the core of the PostNet business model is to ensure the success of small businesses in communities across the country.
No other brand can match the range of services that PostNet has available to help a small business owner grow: 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 online transactions and face-to-face service.
“Each PostNet location is owned and operated by a local business owner, which means our franchisees understand firsthand the day-to-day challenges small businesses face and are personally invested in the local partnerships they serve,” Steve says. “PostNet franchise owners are local business partners for the local business community — people who truly care about their customers’ success by delivering the right solutions to meet their printing, shipping and marketing needs.”
PostNet announces aggressive expansion into Florida markets
Apolonio and Ramon signing on to open a second PostNet franchise in Florida is part of the brand’s overall growth strategy of opening 24 new franchise locations throughout the U.S. in 2016. PostNet has 15 franchise locations open across the state of Florida. We plan to double our footprint in the Sunshine State over the next five years in key markets, such as Miami, Tampa, West Palm Beach, St. Petersburg, Fort Lauderdale and Jacksonville.
“The demand for PostNet’s services is stronger than ever before,” Steve adds. “With 28
million small businesses in the U.S. — 2.3 million of which are in Florida — PostNet is dedicated to serving the printing and marketing needs of those small business owners, providing them with
the business-enhancing solutions and dedicated service they need to compete for customers and be successful.”
