‘Military Times’ Names PostNet One of the 10 Best Veteran Franchises
PostNet is the only printing franchise to make Military Times’ ‘Best for Vets: Franchises 2013’ list
Military members returning from the Middle East are being heavily recruited by the franchise industry. Leadership skills, perseverance, dedication, commitment to service, sense of teamwork and mastery of systems are all traits make veterans outstanding franchise owners, so it’s no surprise that more than 1,000 franchise systems are eagerly recruiting veterans to become members of their teams. Military Times recently slogged through the mountain of offers to identify the best veteran franchises, and came away with a list of 37 “Best for Vets” franchises — and the PostNet printing franchise made the Top 10.
PostNet was the only printing franchise to make the list, which factored in company culture, performance of franchise units, royalties and fees, and financial and other support offered to current and former service members and their families.
“As former chairman of the IFA, I’ve met many veterans outside PostNet who have enjoyed great success as franchisees,” says PostNet CEO Steve Greenbaum. “Making the transition from a military career to the regular workforce can be tough, especially in a recovering economy, and I’m proud that the franchise industry is reaching out to let them know about all the opportunities that are available. When it comes to helping veterans get started on new careers, I’m happy to have a ton of competition, and I’m even prouder that Military Times has singled out PostNet as one of the best.”
PostNet has more than 700 locations worldwide, and dozens of veterans own the Neighborhood Business Centers, which offer printing, shipping, graphic design and online marketing to business customers as well as consumers. PostNet Centers are focused on services designed to help America’s 27 million independent professionals and small- and medium-sized businesses grow. PostNet can help design logos, create store signs, create professional-looking print materials, execute direct mail campaigns, turn vehicles into moving billboards for businesses, email marketing and the creation of websites and mobile sites.
