PostNet, a business services franchise, helps small businesses grow by helping them with logistics, branding, and hosted online websites and marketing solutions. They have quickly risen as a leader in the digital marketing and print and logistics industries. With more than 12 percent of adults starting a business, PostNet is the only franchise system ready to provide the support they need.
PostNet was recently selected as a top franchise on the Franchise Gator Top 100 Franchises List. Their rank was determined based on a number of variables, including financial stability, transparency, and sustainability.
After being selected for inclusion of the Top 100 Franchises list, we sat down with Steven Greenbaum, CEO/Co-Founder of PostNet to talk about his franchise and what sets his franchise apart from others in the same industry.
Talk to about the level of support that franchisees receive from corporate during their opening, as well as once their business is off the ground.
Franchisees receive financial planning/support up front to establish initial financial expectations (business plan/projections) and select lending options. Once approved for financing, they engage in a number of online courses and tools to prepare them for classroom training in Denver (PostNet World Headquarters).
After classroom training in Denver, we provide on-site training during the opening of the business. We conduct a follow-up training 60 days later on-site and also conduct regional meetings, an annual convention, webinars and provide a variety of ongoing learning opportunities.
Give us a description of your ideal candidate:
PostNet's ideal candidate is a coach, mentor or team builder. They love giving back to others as well as their community, almost as much as building a profitable business. Purpose matters. They typically have sales and/or marketing background (or at least no aversion to it) and like to network, build relationships and drive results for their business and their customers.
What makes you stand out against your competition, and why should someone choose your franchise over other similar franchises?
We are the first and only business of our type. There is no other business uniquely positioned to serve the challenges and needs of small to medium sized business. We created this space and have built a proprietary system to support it, developed with over 30 years of experience in business and franchising.
PostNet is founder-owned and operated, is free from debt with the exception of the building that houses PostNet World Headquarters, and our combination of culture and values, a unique and distinctive business model and the technology we use to support our business and franchisees, is second to none.
