Franchise Trends For 2001

Printing And Postal Services

If you're reading this, you probably already know about the explosion in the number of small and homebased businesses taking place nationwide. According to homebased business gurus Paul and Sarah Edwards, there are between 8 million and 9 million homebased businesses in the United States.

While running a business from home has many advantages, one of its disadvantages is a lack of resources for things like printing and postal services. It's a need that hasn't escaped the more than 20 franchises listed in this year's Franchise 500® Postal & Business Services and Printing Services categories. Companies like Mail Boxes Etc., Postal Annex+ and Pak Mail provide postal, packaging and shipping services to the market. Minuteman Press International Inc., Sir Speedy Inc., Kwik Kopy Corp. and other franchises in their segment handle printing, copying and design jobs.

"These franchises continue to grow due to the demands of small businesses," Wilkerson says. "That's where the core of growth in America is."
