Alphagraphics Adds Four New Franchisees to Global Network

Leader in Printing, Outsourced Marketing Services Posts 8.9% Year-Over-Year Growth

October 29, 2012 // Franchising.com // SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – September was a big month for the AlphaGraphics network, with four new owners closing on franchise agreements to open new AlphaGraphics Business Centers. Headquartered in Salt Lake City, AlphaGraphics, Inc. plans, produces and manages visual communications for businesses at nearly 300 owner-operated, locally based business centers worldwide.

Girish Sethi in Houston, Texas, previously owned a box manufacturing company in India that allowed him to gain familiarity with the printing industry. He holds both a bachelors and a post-graduate degree in computer applications, and was also president of All Around Art & Foliograph Galleries, with responsibility for manufacturing operations and 11 retail locations.

Gene and Yolanda Lucero, along with their business partner Trish Perez, are opening a new AlphaGraphics center in the Dallas area. Gene spent 24 years working for Xerox in sales, including six as a General Manager, and 11 in sales management with accounts such as the U.S. Army, Air Force and Veterans Affairs Medical Centers. Gene holds a degree in digital technology and engineering from the University of Texas at Arlington. Trish also spent time in sales for Xerox and was most recently a federal account manager for managed print services with Cannon IV, Inc. She earned a degree in marketing from the University of Texas in Austin.

Arif Jacksi in Manhattan, N.Y. is converting his IMPRESSIONS print shop to an AlphaGraphics center. He brings 14 years of experience in design, web development, commercial printing and sign production, but was interested in the marketing services and network support that a strong franchise brand could offer to his business.

Dan Hayes owns Doops Copy in Olympia, Wash., a 21-year-old independent printing business that is now being converted to an AlphaGraphics Business Center. Dan’s B2B model has served the construction industry, working with designers and project managers to reproduce commercial building documents and host them online.

“These new owners represent the ideal AlphaGraphics franchisee, bringing industry experience, entrepreneurial success and a lot of talent to our network,” said Dave Buzza, vice president of global development for AlphaGraphics. “With our focus on being a marketing and communications provider, we’ve been able to serve as an out-source marketing partner for our clients, and that has allowed us to grow consistently through the economic downturn.”
