A flexible business model giving you the opportunity to grow and expand
We lay out all the systems and guidelines for you to follow, and our people are there when you need us. It’s your business, you control it, and we have found that the owners who follow the system the closest are generally the most successful. Remember, you are in business for yourself, but not by yourself.
Every business is a potential customer
Every business uses some kind of printed items from business cards, letterheads, and envelopes to direct mail campaigns, marketing materials, and promotional items. We also offer full graphic design services. If you can put an image or logo on it we can get it done.
Monday through Friday with normal business hours
Being a business-to-business service franchise , we are typically open Monday thru Friday, 8:30 – 5:30, which allows us to service the needs of the business community while maintaining a quality of life for our franchise owners.
Mass purchasing power
Being the largest printing and graphics franchise in the world certainly has its rewards. With almost 920 centers we use our strength in numbers in negotiating with vendors. Unlike most other franchises though, you are in no way obligated to purchase supplies from these vendors.
No experience necessary
The vast majority of Minuteman Press owners have had no prior background in printing or graphics and most have never owned a business. We are looking for people who want to own, run, and manage a successful business.
Award-winning training program
There is a two week training program at our World Headquarters in Farmingdale, New York. There you will learn every aspect of running and managing the business. Once you finish training in New York, you will receive additional training in your location with your local field representative. They will conduct hands on training of everyday business practices, as well as assist you in the hiring of employees and much, much more.
Royalty Incentive Program
There are many reasons why people buy a Minuteman Press franchise such as: working for themselves, increasing their income, improving their quality of life, or to build a business for their children. We truly understand this, which is why for over 35 years we have had a royalty incentive program.
One of the largest support staffs in all of franchising (with 25 regional support offices)
We have 25 regional support offices with a staff that is dedicated to supporting our franchisees in every aspect of running a business. Our goal is to make you as successful as possible, as quickly as possible, and assist you in growing your business.
Repeatedly ranked #1 in the industry by Entrepreneur magazine
Minuteman Press has had the honor of being ranked #1 in the printing industry by Entrepreneur Magazine 21 times and for the last 11 years in a row.
Business to business
Our target market is businesses and organizations in and around your community, making every business a potential customer. You will have the peace of mind of dealing with like-minded professionals that utilize the products and services you offer.
When it comes time to sell your business, we will help you sell it. Our experienced staff will introduce you to qualified buyers who have a sincere interest in buying your franchise. You will not have the hassle or expense of doing it yourself or dealing with and paying a broker.
