With an Allegra franchise conversion, you can take your independent printing business from mom-and-pop all the way to the top.
For print shop owners interested in joining our franchise, Allegra offers something extraordinary: a traditional long-term agreement or, for entrepreneurs interested in retiring or moving on soon, a five-year agreement. It’s a unique opportunity with the goal of growing the value of your business, making it more sellable and helping you sell it as profitably as possible when you’re ready.
In today’s world, we all should have an exist strategy. With retirement in sight, I realized that it would be easier to seall 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 profitbale marketing and graphic communications space.
