How Much Money Can I Make?
PostNet boasts a proven business model, multiple revenue streams and an executive team that is passionate about your success
PostNet has been a profitable and proven business model since the company was founded in 1992. In the span of nearly 25 years as a franchise system, PostNet has evolved far beyond our humble origins as a pack-and-ship business into a brand that is uniquely qualified to serve the millions of small businesses that need professional printing, marketing and shipping solutions to help their businesses prosper.
The range of services that PostNet offers is only part of what makes PostNet franchise owners competitive in their communities and profitable in their centers. The other key part to profitability is the level of engagement that PostNet franchise owners have with their communities. We encourage our franchise owners to actively network in their communities — to spend more time in front of their small business owner peers than in the centers. Our most successful franchise owners are involved with their local Chambers of Commerce, attend small business gatherings and networking groups, as well join the boards of local nonprofits.
“This is a brand that is for the creative young professional and seasoned executive alike,” says David Sparks, VP of Franchise Development with PostNet. “The fact that our demographics are so diverse is part of the proof that we’re onto something truly special in the franchise industry. Our business model enables people to run their businesses as the CEOs of their own company, to network in their communities, to use their creative skill set to provide first-rate solutions to their customers. PostNet is a brand that is making a real difference. At its very core, PostNet is a brand that exemplifies the American Dream and the American success story.”
PostNet franchise owners are meaningful members of their communities
As the leading printing, marketing and shipping franchise, PostNet is a local ally for small businesses across the country and around the world. We believe small businesses are the backbone of our communities, and their success is critical to the strength of our local economies.
Each PostNet location is owned and operated by a local business owner, which means we understand first-hand the day-to-day challenges small business owners face and are personally invested in the local partnerships we serve. We are a local business partner that truly cares about our customer’s success by delivering the right solutions that meet their printing, shipping and marketing needs. We offer a full menu of services, including 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 shipping needs of our customers.
PostNet offers a potentially faster return on investment
PostNet is a low-cost investment opportunity with a proven business model that offers high potential returns. The total investment necessary to begin operation of a PostNet franchise ranges from $169,767 to $212,275. PostNet is a substantially more affordable investment than several of our competitors, and our rapid build-out time allows our franchise owners to potentially quicken their return on investment.
Once a site is selected, a new PostNet can be open in six to eight weeks. Most importantly, our innovative Online Print Center platform allows new franchise owners to begin selling PostNet services and earning a profit from the moment an address is selected for a new PostNet brick-and-mortar store — potentially quickening the return on investment even further.
Franchising with PostNet means you’re never in business alone
The beauty of owning your own business is that you control your own success. As a PostNet franchise owner, you have many built-in advantages in today’s marketplace, including a pent-up demand for our unique services. Our support systems and programs have proven to be successful in hundreds of PostNet franchises around the world. However, the financial return you will realize as an owner depends on how well you perform and follow the systems provided to you. Your success will also depend on circumstances including local economics and costs, competition and how aggressively you market yourself and your business.
Once you apply for a franchise, you will have the opportunity to speak with numerous franchisees to learn about their experience and satisfaction with the PostNet brand, including the financial performance of their own franchise. By speaking with franchisees, you will be able to better understand the potential of the business and what is necessary to be successful.
