Hit the Ground Running with Our Two Distinctive Opportunities
Coupling yourself with Allegra Network puts you a step ahead in your business venture. Our existing business model (Conversion Print Center) gives you the ability to hit the ground running with immediate cash flow, established customer base, experienced staff and an existing business with a proven track record.
Capitalizing on the growing demand of emerging digital technologies including short-run full color printing, our start-up business model (Digital Print Center) gives you the competitive advantage of offering the most comprehensive services on all-digital equipment. As a Digital Print Center owner, you'll enjoy low overhead, a small group of employees to manage, the ease of operation using just computers and copiers, the ability to open in "your town" and best of all, a lower investment level.
Is Allegra Right for You?
Because this is a relationship-driven business, our most successful franchise members have strong people skills and a good work ethic. From engineers to food service managers and corporate executives, their desire to succeed is far more important than their experience.
A typical Digital Print Center candidate will have $90,000+ liquid capability with a networth of $250,000+. A typical Conversion Print Center candidate will have $200,000+ liquid capability with a networth of $350,000.
Keys to Suceed in an Exciting Industry
According to the Printing Industries of America, the world's largest graphic arts trade association, printing is America's third largest manufacturing industry, employs more than one million people and generates more than $170 billion in sales. The industry continues to grow at 3-5% per year, with newer, value-added services such as digital printing, mailing services and large format printing growing at 6-20% per year. As an Allegra Print & Imaging franchisee, you'll be equipped with the best tools in the industry to take advantage of this growth. Let Allegra be your key to success!
