PostNet Printing Franchise Makes Entrepreneur Franchise 500 List
DENVER—January 14, 2014—The PostNet printing franchise has been named to Entrepreneur magazine's annual Franchise 500 list of top franchise opportunities for the 21st year in a row.
Entrepreneur's list serves as a comprehensive guide to business opportunities; PostNet, which celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2013, has earned a spot on the list every year since it was founded.
The franchise—which combines digital printing, marketing services and shipping at its Neighborhood Business Centers in the United States and throughout the world—has a simple mission: To make it easier for America's small businesses to grow by solving their marketing, branding and logistical challenges.
"Some customers call us the 'make it go away' center, because we help them solve the day-to-day challenges of fulfilling their marketing and printing needs, help them meet critical deadlines, and help them be more efficient which typically equates to higher customer satisfaction and making more money," PostNet CEO Steve Greenbaum said. "Every business—small, medium or large—needs to have effective marketing materials and a strong strategy to earn new business. We help our customers compete."
PostNet helps its franchisees, too. The company's training and extensive support have helped it earn a string of franchisee satisfaction awards from Franchise Business Review. Its franchisees include veterans, former consultants for tech giants, ex-corporate executives, pilots and flight attendants, retired police officers and experienced franchise owners from other companies.
Demand for PostNet services is expected to be especially high in 2014, as the economy seems poised for its fastest growth in years. The Commerce Department reported last month that GDP for the third quarter of 2013 grew at a rate of 4.1 percent; and SurePayroll Inc., a company that provides payroll services to tens of thousands of micro-businesses (1 to 10 employees), reports that 70 percent of them were optimistic in December, up from 55 percent a year ago.
