The total investment for opening a Minuteman Press franchise in the United Kingdom can range from £50,000 to £60,000 when leasing the equipment. There are options available for qualified buyers that may put the initial investment in the £20,000 to £25,000 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. Minuteman Press reverses that: you suggest an area of interest, and our local staff will research and evaluate its potential.
We will also handle all of the area research, location finding and lease negotiations on your behalf, all of which are subject to both your and our approval, before we enter into business. Your location is one of the most important aspects of going into business; we will only put a Minuteman Press centre in a location or area that we believe has the most potential for your business to grow.
What's included in the investment?
- Research of areas of interest to you
- Site selection and lease negotiations on your behalf
- Centre layout plans & optimisation 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
Our business is growing and Minuteman Press is with us every step of the way; providing advice, guidance, opinion, and support for just about every aspect of the business. We did a lot of research and for us, Minuteman Press was the best choice we could have made to go into business for ourselves.
