Why Start a Business From Scratch Give Yourself a Head Start!
Let Allegra Network help you purchase an existing independent printing business and convert it to an Allegra Print & Imaging branded center. With a defined market share, cash flow and customer base, our Conversion Print Center (CPC) offers you a distinct advantage over most start-up franchises.
We have helped our franchise members purchase over 140 independent printing businesses over the last 10 years. Should you choose to enter into a franchise relationship with Allegra Network, we will help you find and purchase a qualified printing business at the right price, council you on facility upgrades, teach you how to manage the location and provide you with ongoing technical, field and telephone support. This will provide you with the tools you'll need to take your printing business to the next level.
Our CPC is a business-to-business franchise that has a handful of employees to manage, does not require weekend or evening hours, and whose small base of core customers traditionally lead to 80 percent of the center's sales. This makes the CPC an easy business to own and operate.
Our traditional conversion centers offer full-service printing and graphic communications services, including full-color printing, graphic design, digital-color printing, signs, mailing services and more! Let our CPC improve the way you work and live; contact us today for more information!
