Just Like Urban Professionals, PostNet Franchise Is Moving Downtown

PostNet Neighborhood Business Center Franchise, Which Has Roots in the Suburbs, Has Been Expanding Into Downtowns Nationwide

DENVER, CO - (Marketwired - Sep 24, 2014) - PostNet is moving downtown. For 21 years, its Neighborhood Business Centers have provided printing and shipping services to customers in suburban areas. Now, the company is opening locations that are focused squarely on supporting downtown business communities.

PostNet has recently opened downtown locations in Boston, Chicago, Denver, Minneapolis and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. It plans to open downtown Neighborhood Business Centers in Dallas, Philadelphia, Austin, Houston and Phoenix, and it is looking for franchise partners in those cities.

"We still have a lot of customers who walk into our Neighborhood Business Centers because they are so convenient for shipping and printing, but our top-performing franchisees have grown their sales significantly by reaching out to their business communities to provide marketing services and logistics," CEO Steve Greenbaum said. "It's a strategy that works in suburban areas, but by opening PostNet locations in downtown business centers, some of our newer franchisees have been able to tap into their business communities much more quickly in order to provide services and grow."

PostNet's 700 locations worldwide offer a full range of digital printing solutions, as well as graphic design, direct mail, websites, email marketing and shipping. There are more than 27 million small businesses and independent professionals in the United States, and PostNet provides the tools and the expertise that they need to reach more customers.

PostNet locations have traditionally drawn two types of customers - walk-in customers who value convenience and fast, professional service, and small business owners who can outsource their marketing needs to PostNet.

Downtown locations are fantastic for franchisees eager to build the B2B side of the business, and the inward migration of urban professionals eager to live downtown is also bringing more walk-in traffic - whether from a professional on their lunch break or a downtown resident who wants a "Happy Anniversary" banner.

"Downtowns are becoming neighborhoods," Greenbaum said. "It's a perfect time to bring a Neighborhood Business Center downtown."
