The nation’s leading printing, marketing and shipping franchise plans to rapidly expand in the year ahead
2018 marks a big milestone in the history of Postnet – 25 years in business as a franchise system. While time has flown by, PostNet remains passionately devoted to helping entrepreneurs realize their dreams of small business ownership. Since our founding, we have helped hundreds of entrepreneurs realize this dream and take their place as meaningful members of their communities.
PostNet is a brand that continues to get stronger through the years, as we nimbly leverage emerging technologies in ways that makes our business more accessible and convenient for consumers. Our commitment to integrating new technologies to enhance our business model makes our brand consistently relevant and provides our franchisees with new ways to increase the level of profitability in their centers.
Our franchisees appeal to two types of customers: the small businesses in their community, as well as the individual consumer. Each customer has different needs, and happily, PostNet has one of the extensive menu of services in the entire printing & shipping industries. For our small business customers, we provide not only the best-in-class marketing materials, our franchisees oversee marketing campaigns from start-to-finish: from design all the way to tracking how the campaign is performing. For our individual customers, we provide extensive shipping solutions and we’ve just recently become the first national franchise to offer Virtual Mailbox Solutions, allowing customers the ability to view and manage their physical mail or packages from their mobile device or computer – anytime, anywhere.
“Our primary job is to solve problems for our customers,” says Ken Rodes, owner of a PostNet franchise in Davidson, North Carolina. “The only way you’ll go out of business is when people run out of problems. We are entirely focused on an exceptional level of customer service, and that separates us from our competitors. When our customers walk out our doors, we make sure that they are confident that they have been taken care of. That makes our customers very loyal. This business is challenging, but you’re always going to be learning — which keeps you alert as a business owner.”
Our ability to connect with our customers is second only to franchise owners connecting with each other and with our executive team. As a brand, one of our core values is caring for the whole, and we put this into practice by providing one of the most robust training platforms and exceptional ongoing support to help our ensure our franchisees thrive and prosper over the long-term. Unlike other franchise systems, PostNet franchisees reach out to each other often for advice, support and camaraderie. It’s not surprising that PostNet franchise owners feel a tremendous affinity for their peers and for our brand, as they have so much encouragement to go out and build their business in their communities.
“After I first walked into a PostNet, I stopped looking at any other opportunities for business ownership. I could see that this brand was going to have staying power,” says Aru Param, owner of a PostNet franchise in Las Vegas, Nevada. I was impressed by the level of customer service and the quality of the services that PostNet offered.The level of support that PostNet offers means that we’re not in this alone. They are accessible to us if we ever need anything, and they also give us our independence. The PostNet executive team listens to us and is supportive of us — they want us to be successful as much as we want that for ourselves. My goal is to be within the top 100 PostNet franchise stores in the country, and I know we will get there.”
