“I wasn’t familiar with this industry, but I wanted to own my own business and knew I could manage people. The Allegra Matchmaker® Program allowed me to step right in and open a franchise with established clients and an experienced staff. I didn’t have to reinvent the wheel.”
– Todd Garcia, Owner, Allegra, Coal City, IL
“It was the best decision to join Allegra through their Advantage? Program. The transition to the Allegra brand was smooth. Being affiliated with this network of industry experts has allowed my location to enhance our capabilities and offer things we weren’t able to previously. The support of the home office for their franchise members allows us to say to our clients, ‘We can do anything!'”
– Ed Klimczak, Owner, Allegra, Alpena, MI
“I always wanted to own my own business. First, I looked at owning multiple units within a franchise system, then I found Allegra. The Allegra program allowed me to purchase and convert an independent printer to the brand. I operate several businesses under one roof and have never had to face the challenge of opening new locations from scratch. I have enjoyed this high-volume business with diversified services from day one!”
– Curtis Hoessly, Owner, Allegra, Virginia Beach, VA
“The franchise has helped us to adapt to the changing needs of the businesses and organizations we support in our local market. Through our 30 years in business, being part of the Network has proven to be a huge benefit to us – and our customers. By leveraging the support and guidance of the franchise, we have gained greater efficiencies, knowledge and ultimately, results.”
– Karen Grassick, Owner, Allegra, Burlington, Ontario
“With Allegra, our revenue is diversified over a fairly large customer base. At our Center, about 75-100 accounts represent just over 75% of our sales. So if we lose a few to attrition over the course of a year it’s not catastrophic; we more often than not make up for them in new accounts.”
– Todd Hinson, Owner, Allegra, Rocky Mount, NC
“In today’s business world, we all should have an exit strategy. With retirement in sight, I realized that it would be easier to sell a strong, branded business with diversified services than an independent printer with flat revenues. This thinking prompted my wife and I to convert to Allegra, and we now operate in the more profitable marketing and graphic communications space.”
– Eugene Montanez, Owner, Allegra, Corona, CA
“The franchise has been very helpful through the years as we needed different things – help with web and marketing efforts, sales training support, advice on purchasing new equipment and help with the acquisition of multiple businesses throughout the years. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the help and support of the franchise.”
– Lisa Buehler, Owner, Allegra and Image360, Little Rock, AR
“Through Allegra’s MatchMaker® program, I purchased an established printing company and converted it to the Allegra brand. Allegra’s vision, support and many resources have been essential to my success in keeping my business relevant to my customers and prospects evolving needs.”
– Steve Kapuscinski, Owner, Allegra, Cincinnati, OH
“As an Allegra owner, I enjoy working with other business professionals within my local community. I also love having a national network behind us to drive the business forward. It helps create a competitive advantage over the independents I often go head-to-head with.”
– Peter Marcus, Owner, Allegra, Tucson, AZ
