Press release from the issuing company

Neighborhood Business Center Hires Franchise Industry Veteran to Support Domestic, International Franchise Growth 

DENVER – In a move to further accelerate the brand’s expansion, PostNet, the nation’s first Neighborhood Business Center that provides printing, shipping, design, and marketing solutions that meet the needs of small businesses and consumers, has named Chip Baranowski Director of Franchise Development.

Baranowski brings nearly 20 years of franchising experience to the PostNet team. In his new position, he will spearhead PostNet’s domestic and international franchise growth by managing the people, processes, budgets, strategies and tactics associated with recruiting strong franchise candidates. 

"This new position will be instrumental in advancing the growth of PostNet and Chip is the right person to do the job. He brings a tremendous amount of industry experience and is completely aligned with our core focus and values,” said Steve Greenbaum, CEO and co-founder of PostNet. “We are excited about having him as a member of our global franchise family."

Most recently, Baranowski served as VP of Franchise Development for Honest-1 Auto Care where he was responsible for all areas of franchise development expansion in the U.S., and played an integral role in growing system revenues, strategic planning and increasing unit-level profitability. In just a three-year span, he increased franchise lead generation by 123 percent. Prior to that, he served as Regional VP at United Franchise Group, Manager of Franchise Development at Unishippers, Director of Franchise Development at Datapreserve, and Director of Franchise Development at Nationwide Floorcovering, Inc.

The new position is a result of the continued growth of the global brand, including an acquisition made earlier this year by Aramex of the master PostNet franchise in South Africa. To date, PostNet has nearly 700 centers open across nine countries. Domestically, PostNet has expanded in San Antonio, San Diego, Phoenix and Boston over the past year, and the brand is targeting Europe, Asia and Mexico for international growth in 2015.
