PostNet Franchisor Targets New England
BOSTON—The PostNet printing franchise has opened its first location in Massachusetts and plans to open four more in New England and 200 nationwide by 2017. It already has more than 700 Neighborhood Business Centers worldwide, and is looking for more business partners to provide printing, marketing and logistics support to help businesses in their communities grow.
Boston native Matt Kaplan worked as an engineer for several local TV stations, including New England Cable News, before joining the PostNet family. After 23 years as an engineer, he started exploring franchise opportunities. He decided to open a PostNet because he liked the company’s B2B culture and realized that there would be a huge pool of potential clients in Boston.
“We’re filling the void for convenient design, print, copy and shipping services that are essential to the success of startups and current small businesses in Boston,” Kaplan said. “It’s rewarding to know that we are helping to build economic prosperity in the local area by supporting entrepreneurism.”
PostNet offers a full range of digital printing solutions for small businesses, as well as graphic design, direct mail, Websites, e-mail marketing and shipping. There are reportedly more than 27 million small businesses and independent professionals in the United States.
