Allegra Makes Biggest ConnectionJune 2010
NORTHVILLE, MI—Allegra Network has leveraged its MatchMaker program to facilitate a $3 million sale, purchase and rebranding of an independent printing business. The program recently helped George and Cheryl Riesenfeld acquire Dennis Denson's independent printing business, Print Central, in Fort Worth, TX.
The Riesenfelds are currently working with Allegra Network to convert the business into an Allegra Marketing, Print and Mail center.
The MatchMaker Program is designed to pair entrepreneurs seeking to invest in an Allegra Network location with independent commercial printing and sign shop owners seeking to sell their existing businesses. Allegra offers start-up franchise opportunities, as well as an existing business model through the program. It helps new franchise members find and purchase a qualified graphic communications business, counsels them on necessary upgrades, teaches them how to manage the location, and provides ongoing operational, marketing, technical and field support.
