AlphaGraphics, Inc., a global leader in marketing and print communications solutions, announced that eight franchise centers are celebrating their 25th anniversary this year. In addition to the eight, another 22 franchisees have been in business with AlphaGraphics for more than 20 years.

• Frank and Barbara Kohout, Wheaton, Illinois
• David Orpin, Nashua, New Hampshire
• Connie Levinson and David Goodare, Concord, Massachusetts

“It is incredibly rewarding to see our franchisees reach this milestone anniversary,” said Art Coley, president of AlphaGraphics. “Their longevity is a true testament of the commitment they have made to each of their business centers. We look forward to many more years to come with these franchisee partners!”
Each of these silver anniversary centers has a unique story of success; however, the franchisees have communicated that part of their growth is attributed to the support of the corporate team at AlphaGraphics and the adaptability in the business model.
“Another key factor in AlphaGraphics’ continued success is our nimbleness to change,” adds Coley. “Because of improvements in technology and our relationships with vendors, franchisees are first to benefit, adapt and change as the industry does.”
AlphaGraphics was founded in Tucson, Arizona in 1970. In 1979, the company began franchising its unique business model, which offers a comprehensive suite of marketing and print solutions for B2B customers. Today, there are nearly 300 franchises across 30 states.
AlphaGraphics is looking for franchisee candidates who have the desire to own their own business, with the structure, training and extensive support offered by the AlphaGraphics system. Qualified candidates should have sales or marketing experience, but do not necessarily need to have a printing background. They also should possess a minimum net worth of $400,000 and liquid assets of at least $150,000. AlphaGraphics franchisees can expect their initial investment to range from approximately $350,000 to $400,000, including the franchisee fee.
