Franchisor AlphaGraphics Continues to Grow through Franchising
AlphaGraphics is a print and visual communications franchisor with more than 260 AlphaGraphics franchises located in the United States and worldwide. AlphaGraphics continues to expand through franchising despite industry trends in a slow economy and difficulties in the printing and visual communication world to attract new clients. According to this article, Art Coley, AlphaGraphics' senior director of franchise development explains ""AlphaGraphics provides its franchisees with leading-edge programs and technologies that add significant value to their relationships with their customers." AlphaGraphics CEO, Kevin Cushing adds, "The ultimate test of any franchisor/franchisee relationship is when it comes to the expiration of the franchise agreement and both parties are free to go their separate ways. We are extremely pleased and proud that during the past few years 100 percent of our owners whose franchises were due to expire have accepted the opportunity to extend their agreements and stay in the AlphaGraphics network. Fourteen owners have been offered the opportunity to extend their agreements with us in the past two and a half years, and all fourteen have accepted. That renewal rate is unheard of in our industry and is a real testimony to our network of franchisees and our team at the AlphaGraphics Service Center. They know they are a part of a leading and winning brand."
