Minuteman Press International, the world’s largest and #1 rated design, marketing, and printing franchise, is proud to celebrate its 40th anniversary of franchising in Canada.
“After expanding our franchise operations in the U.S. in 1975, we decided to bring our passion for printing and entrepreneurship to Canada. Our first Canada-based Minuteman Press franchise opened in the summer of 1978 in Mississauga, Ontario, and the rest is history,” says Bob Titus, Minuteman Press International President & CEO.
He continues, “The way that we have grown and evolved our business from everyday printing essentials to now include anything you can put a name, image or logo on is really an incredible feat. Our Canada centres are full-service printing and marketing providers that design and produce large format posters and signs, custom branded apparel, promotional products ranging from water bottles and reusable tote bags to USB drives, direct mail campaigns from start to finish, and of course, all things printed on paper. Our franchise owners are certainly thankful for our expanded products and services lines just as we are thankful for their dedicated service to their business communities in Canada.”
Today, Minuteman Press has 74 franchises operating in Canada that are supported by local regional support teams in Toronto and Vancouver. Additional benefits of franchising with Minuteman Press include:
- comprehensive two-week training program
- onsite setup of the business by the local regional support team
- assistance with marketing and Internet marketing programs
- proprietary business management software
- unique royalty incentive program
- continued research and development and products and services
- the Minuteman Press International World Expo featuring a full vendor show, seminars, speakers, networking opportunities, and more
Based in Toronto, Kevin Wittal is Minuteman Press International Regional Vice President for Eastern Canada.
He says, “Minuteman Press is a world class organisation and we are proud of our 40-year track record in Canada. I love working with Minuteman Press owners here in Eastern Canada and it is very gratifying to help them grow their business.”
Neil MacLeod, Minuteman Press International Regional Vice President for Vancouver and Western Canada, adds,
“When people sign on to own a Minuteman Press franchise, they are joining a bigger family. I believe the support that we offer is second to none as is our collective knowledge and experience in the industry.”
