PostNet Printing Franchise Owners Featured in Wichita Eagle

Newspaper highlights PostNet printing franchise owners Liz and Jim Anderson

The Wichita Eagle knows an important business story when it sees one, and when Liz and Jim Anderson decided to move their PostNet printing franchise to a new location, the newspaper highlighted the move. Jim and Liz’s Neighborhood Business Center has become a keystone in the local business community, with clients ranging from multibillion-dollar corporations like Koch Industries to small startups. You can read a full Q&A with Liz Anderson here.

The Andersons bought the franchise after Jim came to Wichita to work for NetJets, only to see his job eliminated. Anderson, who had flown professionally for 25 years, spent about six months researching business opportunities before settling on a PostNet franchise.

They opened on Greenwich Road five years ago and moved just around the corner, to East 21st Street, last month. Counting the Andersons, the business has three full-time and two part-time employees. The couple has built a client list that ranges from “Koch (Industries) all the way down to the guys that do handiwork.”

Most of the franchise’s business is commercial, although they do print wedding invitations, posters and other items for individual customers.

Jim Anderson said the key to growth has been gaining the trust of fellow small business owners. He said his wife is good at coming up with business plans for clients that make the most of their budget.

“We’re in it to try to make business partners out of them,” he said. “That doesn’t happen overnight.”

Liz said she has learned much from training offered by PostNet and from fellow franchisees around the country.

“We don’t miss a seminar,” she said. “We don’t miss a training. You have to put it in to get it back out.”
