About Kall Kwik

An iconic brand, reinvented for the digital age

Kall Kwik is a B2B design and print franchise with multiple income streams.

The communications industry has transformed, and so has Kall Kwik. A familiar presence on the high street in the 80s and 90s, it has been relaunched for continued success in the digital age.

Franchise owners use the Kall Kwik business model and brand as a launchpad to develop their own successful businesses in this dynamic sector.

A cost-effective route into design & print

Kall Kwik has evolved from a production-led operation to a consultative print and design service provider. Outsourcing high-end production means entry level and ongoing costs can be kept to a minimum. As a business-to-business franchise, Kall Kwik is not subject to the fluctuating demands of the retail market and average order values are high with good profit margins.

Customers

The business is very customer-centric and offers a collaborative, bespoke service. This earns loyalty, which maximises repeat and regular orders, helping to drive business growth.

We’ve invested heavily in large format print to meet growing demand from conference and exhibition organisers as well as the hotel market and car dealerships. And the ability to print full colour to the highest quality enables centres to retain and develop relationships with a diverse customer base, including blue-chip companies.

A broad print & design offering

Kall Kwik benefits from multiple income streams. It’s about much more than putting ink on paper.

Centres offer a wide range of services including:

  • direct mail
  • website design
  • email marketing
  • online, digital and litho print
  • large format printing

How much does it cost? And what do I get?

The cost is £50,000 + shop fit +vat, and working capital is also required. This covers your licence to trade under the well-established Kall Kwik brand as well as extensive training, support and essential equipment. Territories are large with 9,000 to 10,000 businesses (with some variations in London).

Comprehensive training

New centre managers benefit from four dedicated weeks of training. This includes sessions at our headquarters, one week onsite at an existing centre and a week in your own centre with senior Kall Kwik personnel working alongside you.

Getting you off to a strong start

In addition to training, we provide an extensive start-up package including:

  • a turnkey equipment suite (digital printers, laminator, trimmer, guillotine, finishing kit, Marlin (3D) printer etc.) all delivered and installed, with training given
  • a marketing launch programme to kick-start the business
  • access to a web2print solution
  • a dedicated website, contact management system and Kall Kwik email account
  • access to the Kall Kwik intranet and a 12-month subscription to dotmailer e-marketing.

There when you need us

You will make the key decisions in your business. But we are always on hand with advice and any additional support you may need in relation to marketing, finances or training. We also hold regular one-to-one business reviews and network meetings where you can meet centre owners from other territories to share ideas.

Wider benefits: strong resale value and work-life balance

Kall Kwik is a ‘work from home’ opportunity, minimising operating costs, maximising profits and facilitating an effective work-life balance.

Being very customer focused, with a wide range of services, Kall Kwik centres can cross-sell to their existing client base as well as developing new business. This results in robust, profitable businesses with good resale value.

What do centre owners say?

“Building a rapport with clients and delivering outstanding customer service combined with competitive pricing is one of the keys to our success. Clients like knowing the people they are doing business with and the familiarity that goes with that.” Natalie Muckell, owner of Kall Kwik Fleet Street since 2007

“I opened my Kall Kwik centre in 1984. I chose Kall Kwik because I had a gut feeling that it was an ethical franchise, run by an ethical franchisor. Kall Kwik is not a get rich quick scheme, but if you are looking for a partner to help develop your own long-term ambitions to create a successful business, it could work for you. It certainly worked for me!” Terry Woods, owner of Kall Kwik Chiswick
