Proforma Recognized as #5 Top Low Cost Franchise

Proforma is proud to announce its recognition as a Top Low Cost Franchise for 2011 by the Franchise Business Review. The Franchise Business Review’s listing honors franchise organizations that require an average overall investment of under $100,000. These organizations don’t have the overhead of real estate, pricey retail locations or large inventories, and they are recognizably well poised for strong future growth. With an initial startup investment of $29,500, Proforma earned the #5 ranking.


“We are pleased with our ranking by the Franchise Business Review as a Top Low Cost Franchise,” said Greg Muzzillo, Founder of Proforma. “Our mission is to help our Owners’ make their dreams come true. When a distributor joins the Proforma network, they have the freedom to create and run their business they way they want to. This makes us appealing to industry professionals who want to receive the most support in the industry combined with the autonomy of their own business.”


According to Muzzillo, one of the contributing factors of Proforma’s success is its non-restrictive franchise agreements which enable Owners to determine the products they sell, their target customer niche and their own unique pricing structure. Proforma members are not restricted by territories, which opens up billions of dollars of sales potential for the entire Proforma network. Each distributor member has a full suite of support including access to award winning marketing campaigns, a newly enhanced technology platform, financial backing, free credit insurance, the buying clout that lowers costs 4% - 10% with a proven vendor network, and more.

In addition to being named the #5 Top Low Cost Franchise, Proforma has been recognized in the industry as the #1 Top Distributor by Promo Marketing Magazine, the #2 Top Distributor by Counselor magazine and the #3 Top Distributor by Print Professional and Print Solutions magazines. The company also secured the most franchise Owners on the Inc. 5000 in 2010 and the most million dollar producers in the print and promotional products industry.
