Printing.com has confirmed it will be offering master franchises to fuel the company’s international expansion.
The strategy for expanding the Printing.com model outside of the UK and Ireland is based on the granting of master franchises, usually on a country-by-country basis, to established commercial printers overseas.
Printing.com says that by adopting a master franchise, instead of a wholly-owned foreign subsidiary, each new venture should eliminate start-up losses and contribute to both profit and cash generation from the outset of each agreement.
By partnering with an established commercial printer with production infrastructure in place the significant delays and capital costs in establishing a national print hub will be avoided, allowing for a faster rate of lower risk international expansion.
The master franchisee will be charged an initial licence fee in the range of £170,000-£510,000.
