The total investment for a Minuteman Press franchise opening in the Canada can range from $100,000 to $150,000 when leasing the equipment. There are financing options available for qualified buyers that may put the initial investment in the $30,000 to $50,000 range. Minuteman Press’ investment includes virtually everything you need to start your business. Most franchisors will sell you a business first, and then tell you to go find a location that they must approve. At Minuteman Press we reverse that; you suggest an area of interest and our local staff will research and evaluate its potential.
We believe in forming a real relationship with our potential franchisees before we enter into business. We will also handle all of the area research, location finding and lease negotiations on your behalf before we enter into business. All of which are subject to your as well as our approval. Your location is one of the most essential aspects of going into business; we will only place a Minuteman Press centre in a location or area that we believe has the most potential for the business to grow.
What's included in the investment?
- Research of areas of interest to you
- Site selection and lease negotiations on your behalf
- Center layout plans & optimization of work flow
- Coordination of renovations, inside & out
- Standard furniture, fixtures, signage & digital printing systems
- Proprietary business management & pricing software
- Two week training program (travel & hotel accommodations included)
- Additional onsite training from a local field representative
- Assistance in business setup, finding employees and starting the marketing programs
Once you submit your application and are accepted as a Minuteman Press franchisee, you may be eligible for financing. We have been able to keep fantastic relationships with several third party finance companies that make it easy to get into business. These businesses have evaluated our business model, past performance history and they believe in our concept. They know we bring quality people who have the ability and determination to conduct a successful business. While there are many benefits to our financing program, you are certainly entitled to select any separate financing program which best suits your requirements. Whatever financing options can be found, our initial concern is to assist you in researching Minuteman Press and also to see if our business is ideal for you or not. Once you decide that Minuteman Press is ideal for you, we will then assist you in obtaining the best financing option available.
We really liked Minuteman Press International’s ability to provide us with the resources to create our strong supply chain, their proprietary business management software that helps us manage the business, and the fact that we were able to buy an established business that already had a local foundation.
