Moving to London a Snap for WA firm

SNAP Printing has extended its global expansion program to London, opening its first centre in Marylebone High Street.

Snap is the largest quick print franchise group in the southern hemisphere and has already proved the portability of its system in Ireland, New Zealand and China. The UK is the company’s next step, followed by an assault on Europe.

Snap Franchising CEO Tim Hantke said the plan was to test the existing Snap Printing concept in London.

“We want to focus on getting it right for the UK market and once we’re satisfied with that we’ll look at expanding operations in the region,” Mr Hantke said.

The new London centre is operated by Michael Kearney and his business partner Ed Murphy.

Mr Kearney became Snap’s first master franchisee when he introduced the system to his native Ireland in 1994. Now there are 14 Snap Printing centres through Ireland and the group accounts for ten per cent of that country’s quick printing business.

Snap Printing’s international development manager Philip Lucks said the group’s international expansion plans include franchises in Asia and Africa.

Snap has already established a strategic alliance with US quick print giant Sir Speedy. The alliance allows Snap customers to have documents printed and delivered from more than 1,000 print centres around the world.
