Minuteman Press franchise opportunity
Minuteman Press franchise locations are full-service B2B print and marketing providers. Our exceptional franchise business model provides products and services which each business needs for their everyday operations, in addition to their marketing and advertising campaigns.

Prior experience isn't required to own and run an effective Minuteman Press franchise. Our owners are business people that are alert to the needs of the local business community and can develop long-term repeat business relationships with their clients by offering exceptional quality and customer service.

Why printing and Minuteman Press? Having reviewed various different franchise options, Minuteman Press, for me, had the most professional and practical approach. I re-call my first meeting with the Area Manager, I was explained the business model in great detail from start up costs and what happens when the business starts flourishing. We met with actual business owners and obtained a truthful outlook into franchising with Minuteman Press. The transparency, reasonable initial franchise costs, royalty cap and regular business hours were all factors that contributed to making our decision.

“Having been in the Motor industry for 10 years working long and unsociable hours with very little reward I decided to look at running my own business so that I could control my own destiny. As I had no previous experience in running my own business I decided to look into franchising. Running my Minuteman Press Franchise has not only helped me to secure my financial future but it has allowed me to enjoy a work/life balance that I once thought I would never see. The training and support given has been great and it needed to be as I didn’t have the first clue about running a print, marketing and design business. My business has gone from strength to strength and I intend on continuing to build my operation with Minuteman Press.”
Amad Hassan, Oxford – Owner since 2010

How we support you
Something that makes Minuteman Press unique in franchising is the ongoing support we provide to our owners. We are extremely proud of our support system. Our owners benefit from continued local - we have support offices in Glasgow, Manchester and Maidenhead - and corporate communications, local meetings, an international convention, marketing campaigns, internet advertising programs and our monthly magazine.

“We met with Minuteman Press reps at the London franchise show who explained to us the way that Minuteman Press worked. We felt that with the support of the Minuteman team and buying into a global franchise, we would be as equipped as possible to move into a new industry and grow a print business.

The information provided at the show was the start of things for us, we were then invited to visit a number of stores within the UK which helped us to understand what we were buying into and how the shop might look. When speaking to the store owners, we could see that the businesses were working well. We were impressed by the consistency across the stores. There was no pressure from anyone at Minuteman Press to buy the franchise and there was so much time afforded to us to see stores, ask questions, and talk through any concerns that we felt that the decision we were making was well-thought-out and a good business decision. It was an easy decision to move forward with Minuteman Press.”
Romi Pinsent – Owner since 2021
