Our goal is to make you as successful as possible, as quickly as possible, and to continually work with you to grow your business.

Testimonials

.

“I decided to become a franchisee with Minuteman Press over 25 years ago. This was something I carefully researched before entering into it. What attracted me to Minuteman Press was that they were well established within the printing industry with a large network of support, fixed royalty payments, and a business structure that gives me the freedom to enjoy the lifestyle that I desire. The group buying power of the combined franchisees is an incredible bargaining tool with our vendors, and gives us a competitive edge in the marketplace.”

Doug Frederickson, Surrey, B.C. Canada - Owner Since 1994

"The corporate office is always finding ways for each franchisee to grow their business. The one thing that has always stood out for me is as a franchise owner is the fact that this is our business. We run it the way we see fit. The head office is there for as much or as little support as we need. Our Regional VP and Field Rep are always a phone call away. We wanted autonomy and that is exactly what Minuteman Press International gives us."

Chris Hartery, Mississauga, Ontario Owner since 2010
