AlphaGraphics Inc., a global franchisor of design, printing, marketing and communications businesses, has been purchased by fellow franchisor Mail Boxes Etc. (MBE) Worldwide. Following the acquisition, MBE will hold a network of approximately 2,600 locations in 39 countries, including nearly 500 locations in the U.S.
In addition to its own printing operation interests, MBE specializes in third-party logistics, concentrating on shipping, micro and related retail-logistics services. MBE also acquired the U.S.-based PostNet franchise system in April 2017.
AlphaGraphics will continue to operate as an independent company and will retain its current management team, with headquarters remaining in Salt Lake City. “This is an exciting development for the AlphaGraphics franchise system,” said Gay Burke, AlphaGraphics Executive Chair. “Combining forces with MBE Worldwide creates unique opportunities to synergize with colleagues similarly steeped in managing a franchise-based network of entrepreneurs.”
