Allegra Marketing Print Mail is excited to announce that an astounding 17 of its franchisees from coast to coast have been named to the WhatTheyThink | Printing News “2021 Top 100 Small Commercial Printers” list. One center, Allegra Asheville, North Carolina, is in the Top 10 for an impressive second year in a row and has been listed in the Top 100 for six years straight! The Dulles, VA location also hit a milestone of being listed in the Top 100 for a 10th straight year! With one decade down, they now turn their attention to the next 10 years.
The list was created after surveying small commercial print business owners in April and May of 2021. The upper limit for participation was set at $25 million in annual revenues.
The survey found that from 2020 to 2021, demand for wide format printing increased dramatically due in large part to COVID-related signage as well as graduation and other celebration signage opportunities. Small format is currently seeing a recovery as people start going back to the office and the need for business card and standard office collaterals are required.
A large number of centers on the list are franchises, which are more likely to be positioned for success through the guidance, leadership, and encouragement of a solid franchisor.
“We are honored to have 17 Allegra franchise centers be recognized in the ‘2021 Top 100 Small Commercial Printers’ list,’” said Ray Palmer, President of Franchise Operations for Alliance Franchise Brands. “The pandemic has presented unprecedented challenges for businesses across many industries. Our team and our franchisees moved quickly to meet the changing needs of Allegra’s clients. The success of our franchisees is a testament to the Allegra Franchise model, and the support we strive to provide to all members of the Allegra franchise family.”
