Franchise Opportunities for Entrepreneurs and Independent Print Shop Owners
Virtually every small and medium-sized business requires digital or printed promotional and informational materials that are offered by Allegra Centers. In fact, there are more than 28 million of these potential clients in North America, as well as hundreds of thousands of nonprofits and community organizations.
Most businesses and organizations are great at what they do, but marketing is not their specialty. As an Allegra business owner, you’ll help them get their message to potential and existing customers using a variety of strategies – print, digital, advertising, public relations and more.
All told, print and marketing services account for an estimated $178 billion in annual sales in North America. As an Allegra franchise business owner, you’ll be uniquely positioned to capture your share of this opportunity.

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
Being part of the Allegra Network has given me immediate access to more than 200 industry vendors or partners – which is much greater access than I ever had an independent printer. This allows me the opportunity to offer a much wider variety of services and at competitive prices, too, while maintaining a significant margin.
- Eugene Montanez, Owner, Allegra, Corona, CA
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
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, <br />Little Rock, AR
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
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
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
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
COVID-19 is taking a personal and professional toll on all of us.
