THE PATHWAY TO OWNERSHIP
The AlphaGraphics Discovery Process provides an opportunity for you to learn the all of the details of owning a printing and marketing franchise business from AlphaGraphics so that you can make an informed decision for you and your family. Along the way, we’ll get to know each other better and evaluate a mutual fit based on your goals and aspirations and the many benefits of an AlphaGraphics franchise.
Typically the Discovery Process takes 45-60 days but can be completed sooner based on your availability. Each step of the way, you’ll have a dedicated Development Director at your side. You’ll learn the key competitive differences of owning an AlphaGraphics printing and marketing franchise, meet our executive leadership team, visit AlphaGraphics centers, speak with our support team and franchise owners, review the financial performance of AlphaGraphics centers and more!

You are under no obligation to join the AlphaGraphics family by completing the Confidential Application. Once you complete and submit the application, we’ll send and review with you our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). The FDD is a required document for all franchisors and includes details of the franchisor-franchisee relationship. It is a comprehensive collection of information including our company background, management team, a detailed breakdown of the total investment, current franchisee lists, our company financials, and much more.
4. FRANCHISE DISCLOSURE DOCUMENT (FDD) REVIEW
We’ll go through the main sections of the FDD so you understand the many benefits of being a part of a franchise system, including yours and AlphaGraphics responsibilities that will contribute to our mutual success. We’ll also do a detailed review of the FDD at your Discovery Day.

FOR YOURSELF, BUT NOT BY YOURSELF
FROM EXECUTIVE TO ENTREPRENEUR
Steve Webb found the balance of freedom and stability he was looking for AlphaGraphics ownership. Our unique approach to franchise ownership allowed him to achieve his career goals without leaving innovation behind.
HARD WORK PAYS OFF
One of the things that makes AlphaGraphics one of the best franchises to own is that your business can grow with you. Brian McDaniel, a former Coca-Cola executive, has seen firsthand how the scalability of our model makes a big difference in business outcomes.
BANKER CHOOSES ALPHAGRAPHICS
You don’t have to have a background in printing to succeed with AG. Atul Chugh found his middle-management experience in the banking industry helpful when he became a franchise owner. We love the entrepreneurial spirit, and we’ll give you the support you need to express yours.
FORMER XEROX EXECUTIVE
Executives are valuable members of our team, too. Greg McDonough spent two decades as a Xerox executive before starting his journey as an AG owner. Greg has been pleasantly surprised by how his team and business have grown, thanks to a strong network of support from the AlphaGraphics team.
