AlphaGraphics, the industry leader in printing and marketing communications for small to mid-size companies, recently announced that 17 of its franchise owners were recognized on Quick Printing Magazine's 2012 Top 100 List.
Quick Printing's Top 100 List consists of the top printing centers across the nation and is published each year to spotlight the leaders in the small commercial printing industry. The list ranks printers by total sales figures; statistics include growth, number of centers and employees, sales per employee and sales per center.
This year's list included 17 notable AlphaGraphics franchise businesses that ranked exceptionally high in many categories. Overall, 32 AlphaGraphics centers averaged $2 million per center sales and $64 million overall total in sales.
Of the group, two garnered top 25 status:
-- AlphaGraphics -- Seattle, Wash. -- Ranked #6 out of 100: Owner Chuck
Stempler and the company reported 2011 sales of more than $10 million
with an impressive $1.79 million sales per center average and 15.61
-- AlphaGraphics on University -- Tempe, Ariz. -- Ranked #23 out of 100:
Co-owners Mike Sparaco and Darin Osborne had exceptionally high sales
per center at $6.01 million. In addition, their business brought in more
than $160,000 per employee.
"It's unbelievable that 17 of our AlphaGraphics owners made it on this respected list," said Art Coley, President of AlphaGraphics. "We are overjoyed with all of our franchisees who show continuous dedication to delivering the best printing and marketing communication services to each and every local business in their market."
The printing industry saw more than eight percent growth in the past year with 13 percent of total sales across the top 100 owners generated by AlphaGraphics.
"The categories on the Top 100 List are perhaps the best indicators of a company's overall fiscal health," Coley noted. "We are glad our company and franchisees are being recognized nationally for their tremendous efforts."
