In 2020, Minuteman Press is celebrating 45 years of franchising. The Company was founded in 1973 by Roy and Bob Titus, and began franchising in 1975. Today, Minuteman Press has grown to nearly 1,000 franchises in five countries. Nick Titus, 34, was named the third generation President of Minuteman Press International in January 2020.

“As we celebrate 45 years of franchising, we are truly proud of these positive Minuteman Press franchise reviews and rankings we have earned through the hard work and dedication of our owners as well as our corporate staff and regional support teams,” says Nick Titus. “We all work together towards the common goal of helping other businesses grow through effective marketing strategies including our full suite of design, printing, promotional products, large format printing, and mailing services.”

Nick elaborates further, “The growth strategies which we have developed and implemented for over four decades have continued to enable us to excel and achieve our status as the #1 rated print and marketing franchise in our industry. Rather than rely on radical changes, we continue to grow in two ways, through the growth of our locations and the growth of our franchise as a whole.”

“For our locations, we continue to add more products and services and we have been doing this for a long time. Today, a Minuteman Press center anywhere we operate can provide just about any type of printed paper product, large format banners, posters and signage, custom branded apparel, promotional products, marketing and mailing services. Really anything you can put a name image or logo on, we can produce.”

“From the franchisor side, we will continue to grow our partnerships with our vendors and suppliers for better mass purchasing agreements and continued education for our franchise owners. The strength of any good franchise lies in its owners. Our company is only as good as our franchisees and we take a lot of pride in working with and supporting them. The more successful they are, the more successful the whole company is.”

On the strength of Minuteman Press moving forward, Nick says, “Fortunately, we have a very strong and well-established company. The average tenure of the employees at our world headquarters is almost 20 years so I am surrounded by some outstanding and very knowledgeable people. We have embraced digital printing technology, continued research and development, and are constantly upgrading our proprietary FLEX software that helps our owners manage all aspects their business from pricing and customer management to workflow and marketing.”
