I look forward to working with Bill McPherson, Ryan Farris and all the other executives to help continue the success that PostNet and AlphaGraphics exemplify.”

AlphaGraphics recognized as a top franchise for veterans

2022-03-22T17:10:34-04:00March 22nd, 2022|Tags: , , , , |

Leading marketing and print solutions provider named a 5-star brand by VetFran

DENVERAlphaGraphics, a leading franchisor of printing and marketing solutions, has been named one of the top franchises for veterans after being elevated to a 5-star brand by VetFran, which is a program of the International Franchise Association.

Franchisors selected as 5-star brands must have a clean audit report, minimum 20% discount on initial franchise fee, at least five years continuously operating a franchise, at least 50 units open, at least an 80% continuity rate over the past three years, and at least one certified franchise executive on staff.

“When veterans exit active service, there are questions as to what the next step in life is,” said Bill McPherson, vice president of franchise development. “Franchising has created an opportunity for many of them to pursue a fruitful life moving forward. Veterans make up about 14% of all franchisees in America, and we have several veterans that have purchased an AlphaGraphics. Being rated a 5-star brand for vets is a testament to the work we do to be a veteran-friendly franchise.”

The mission for VetFran is to educate veterans and franchisors about the demands and opportunities of being a franchisee. The organization also helps the transition of veterans into franchising by encouraging franchisors to offer incentives while also assembling resources and a database of franchising opportunities.

“We champion the idea of veterans purchasing franchises,” McPherson said. “One of the great things about veteran franchisees is their desire to hire other vets and create opportunities for their fellow servicemen or women. We support that initiative at AlphaGraphics and work to make the purchase and success of franchises for veterans easy and simple.”

DENVERAlphaGraphics, a leading franchisor of printing and marketing solutions, is among the largest printing companies in the U.S. and Canada after being named to the prestigious Printing Impressions 300 list. The franchise ranked 28th with $215 million in total sales.

“Difficulties related to the pandemic continued last year, but our leadership team and franchisees worked together to make 2021 a success,” said Bill McPherson, vice president of franchise development. “As we transitioned back to normal, our franchise continued to evolve to meet the needs of our customers. Sales remained steady, and we were able to thrive. That wouldn’t be possible without a combined effort from everyone under the AlphaGraphics banner.”

AlphaGraphics ranks among top franchise brands

2021-10-12T10:34:20-04:00October 12th, 2021|Tags: , , , , |

Leading marketing and print solutions provider lands on Franchise Times Top 400.

DENVER — AlphaGraphics, a leading franchisor of printing and marketing solutions, has been recognized as one of the biggest brands in the nation and earned placement on the Franchise Times Top 400. Receiving a ranking of 214, AlphaGraphics saw sales of $215.2 million in 2020.

“Amid the challenges in 2020, AlphaGraphics found ways to thrive across the entirety of our franchise system,” said Bill McPherson, vice president of franchise development. “Being an essential business, we had to develop processes to address the everchanging needs of our customers during a time where there was plenty of uncertainty. It was our ability to evolve and adapt that allowed us to be successful.”

Previously the Top 200+, Franchise Times renamed its annual ranking of the 400 largest U.S.-based franchise systems by global systemwide sales to better encompass the biggest brands in franchising, along with promising young concepts in growth mode. The rigorous approach to research remains the same, said Franchise Times Editor-in-Chief Laura Michaels.

The project is the result of a five-month research and reporting effort that leads to the most credible and objective franchise ranking available. The collection of systemwide sales data also provides useful insight into the franchise industry’s performance during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“From the top to the bottom, our AlphaGraphics family has remained dedicated to the growth of the franchise, and being named to this list is a testament of our hard work,” McPherson said. “Both headquarters and our franchisees had to overcome tremendous obstacles and roadblocks to find prosperity during these difficult times. We all look forward to seeing how much more we can grow in the coming years.”

AlphaGraphics recognizes top franchisees at annual conference

2021-08-30T17:48:06-04:00August 30th, 2021|Tags: , , , , |

Leading marketing and print solutions provider hosts in-person meeting for special event.

DENVERAlphaGraphics, a leading franchisor of printing and marketing solutions, honored its top franchisees during the company’s annual conference recently. The leading print franchise celebrated its 51st anniversary in San Diego, California, with an in-person event that welcomed 225 people.

“After a yearlong virtual journey, both the senior management team and the franchisees were excited to meet in person,” said Bill McPherson, vice president of franchise development. “The past year was difficult because of our inability to network and connect in-person with one another, but we made tremendous strides in our growth that were unmatched in previous years. So, this year’s conference offered the perfect opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the top franchisees among the AlphaGraphics family.”

This year’s winners included:

Rising Star: Rob Barnett (Suwanee, Georgia)

A franchisee with 30 years in finance and leading sales teams, Barnett was chosen for the award because of his ability to inject renewed passion into the chemistry of his team while quickly becoming a leader in the southeast region.

Most Improved: Steven Service (Rochester, New York

An owner of an AlphaGraphics location since 2013, Service was chosen because his goal is to always meet customer’s expectations by providing value and solutions without sacrificing high standards and quality.

Project of the Year: Phil Davis and Lynn Nelson (American Fork, Utah)

Davis and Nelson tackled a task for MX, a financial technology data company, that required them to deliver a packaging that would “speak for itself.” The center did just that by creating a box with an embedded video player that automatically started playing when it was opened.

Community Impact: A.B. Barrera and Paco Barrientos (Laredo, Texas)

Barrera and Barrientos, along with the Laredo staff, helped slow the spread of COVID-19 in their community by partnering with the Laredo Mask Coalition. The organization launched a city-wide public service media campaign encouraging people to wear their masks. AlphaGraphics Laredo donated their services to the cause.

Community Advocacy: Johanna Higginson (West Jordan, Utah)

Higginson gave two former inmates a chance when she hired them to work in her center. The two prospective employees showed enthusiasm and had relevant experience at the prison’s print facility. They continue to work in the center.

AlphaGraphics was founded in 1970, and the company began offering franchise opportunities in 1979. For more information, visit http://www.alphagraphics.com.

Entrepreneur Magazine includes AlphaGraphics on top global franchise list

2021-07-30T10:57:40-04:00July 30th, 2021|Tags: , , , , |

Leading marketing and print solutions provider also ranked in Franchise 500® earlier this year.

DENVERAlphaGraphics, a leading franchisor of printing and marketing solutions, has been named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s list of Top Global Franchises for 2021. The franchise came in at No. 174.

Earlier this year, AlphaGraphics ranked in the Franchise 500®, the world’s first and most comprehensive franchise ranking. Inclusion in both the highly competitive Franchise 500® and the global franchise list highlights the company’s commitment to providing best-in-class service at its more than 285 worldwide locations.

“The past year has been tumultuous, to say the least,” said Bill McPherson, vice president of franchise development. “Through it all, we have remained committed to our customers all around the world. Being recognized as a top franchise just cements for us that we are focusing on the right things.”

Entrepreneur determines its global rankings based on a formula similar to the one used for the Franchise 500®. However, in the global ranking, international size and growth are weighed more heavily. Other evaluation criteria include costs and fees, franchisee support, brand strength and financial strength and stability.

“We are proud of all that we’ve accomplished so far,” McPherson said. “We couldn’t do it without our amazing team of partners all around the world. We’re looking forward to another successful year as we maintain our focus on delivering value for our customers.”

AlphaGraphics was founded in 1970, and the company began offering franchise opportunities in 1979. For more information, visit http://www.alphagraphics.com.

AlphaGraphics reveals brand refresh and new website

Global leader in print and marketing solutions unveils refreshed branding and website to reflect evolution and growth.

DENVER — AlphaGraphics, a leading franchisor of printing and marketing solutions, has recently undergone a full brand refresh. The company, which just celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2020, has made several changes to reflect the brand’s overall growth as a company.

“Fifty years ago, we started out as a brand for print services,” said Ryan Farris, COO and president of AlphaGraphics. “Since then, we have grown into one of the largest printing and marketing franchises in the world.

“AlphaGraphics is a print and marketing partner you can trust. We consult and collaborate with our customers to provide them with custom solutions for their business. Our brand refresh is a reintroduction to our customers to showcase how we can help their business every step of the way.”

Along with the brand refresh, AlphaGraphics rolled out a new website geared toward telling the company’s story while also helping it become a marketing execution partner. The website showcases the company’s full services offerings: print services, signs, marketing and technology.

“The website is a direct representation of our move toward the future and how AlphaGraphics continues to modernize and expand after so many years of service,” said Farris. “The website is a celebration of who we are as a franchise. It showcases how much we have grown over our 50 years of existence.”

With more than 285 locations in six countries, AlphaGraphics was the first U.S. printing franchise to expand internationally, as well as the first retailer in desktop publishing. In 2019, AlphaGraphics was named to the Entrepreneur Franchise 500 and the Franchise Times Top 200+. In 2020, AlphaGraphics was named one of the largest printing operations by Printing Impressions.

AlphaGraphics was founded in 1970, and the company began offering franchise opportunities in 1979.
