Snap’s Queensland franchisees to close service hub

By Sarah Stowe | 29 Oct 2015 View comments

The franchisee owned and operated Snap Hub in Queensland is closing. The centre provides print services for the 22 Snap outlets in the region.

The Hub has been owned by the Queensland franchisees for the past 12 years but the group has decided closure is the best response to the increasing costs of investment into equipment and technology.

Shareholders in the Hub are working with franchisor Snap Franchising to install a new state-of-the-art supply chain to service the Snap centres in the State with no disruption to existing clients.

Stephen Edwards, Snap CEO, said  "We are committed to the continuous development of best-in-breed technology for our franchise owners and clients and the closure of the Hub gives us the opportunity to evolve our supply chain model with the latest technology.

"This will also allow us to shift our manufacturing model towards expertise in print, design and website services, becoming specialists in cross marketing channels."

Snap has 179 owner-operated centres across Australia, New Zealand, China and Ireland.
