Franchise owners given opportunity to network while exploring educational and tech solutions
AlphaGraphics, a leading franchisor of printing and marketing solutions, recognized top franchisees and discussed plans for the future recently during its 52nd annual conference at the Hyatt Regency in Denver.
“AlphaGraphics wouldn’t be the brand that it is today without a combined effort from both our franchise owners and leadership team,” said Bill McPherson, vice president of franchise development. “Our annual conference gives us an opportunity to celebrate the hard work of our franchisees while also discussing ways we can continue to thrive.”
Several awards were given out at this year’s conference, including:
- Franny: Lou Malooley, Georgia
- Rising Star: Clayton Authement, Texas
- Most Improved: Todd Bone, Texas
- Project of the Year: Gregg McDonough, Utah
- Community Impact: Ken and Barbara Adams, Texas
- Community Advocacy: Natalie Knight, Utah
- Top Overall Sales: Lynn Nelson, Idaho.
In addition to the awards ceremony, there were several networking events held throughout the conference, including technology expos on Aug. 4-5.
“We love recognizing our franchisees for the tremendous job they’ve done all year, but the annual conference also gives them a space to network and learn from other franchise owners under the AlphaGraphics flag,” McPherson said. “They have the chance to discuss different strategies and develop new goals that could help them build their business once they returned home. It’s a tremendous event all around, and we love hosting it every year.”
AlphaGraphics was founded in 1970, and the company began offering franchise opportunities in 1979. For more information, visit http://www/alphagraphics.com
