The leading franchise known for providing printing and shipping solutions to small businesses and private consumers, PostNet, recently named Brad and Shawna Cranston of Lakewood Ranch, FL the 2018 Franchisees of the Year. The Cranstons were awarded the top franchisee accolade for the first time after owning a PostNet franchise in Lakewood Ranch for over eight years. Recognized at PostNet’s 25th Annual Franchisee Thrive Convention in September 2018, the Cranstons were honored for their outstanding business performance and contribution to the PostNet franchise system.

“Since the beginning, Brad and Shawna have shown unparalleled passion and dedication for the PostNet brand. They are smart, savvy, and creative entrepreneurs,” said Brian Spindel, co-founder, President, and COO of PostNet. “They have deeply ingrained themselves in their community, building long-lasting relationships with their customers and the local businesses that serve Lakewood Ranch. They are a true partner to the businesses and consumers in their community as well as our franchise system, and they continue to impress us! We’re thrilled to recognize them for all of their accomplishments.”

While their business has steadily grown over the years, the Cranstons credit their success to a combination of factors, including strong customer service, hiring the right employees to serve their customers’ unique and evolving needs, and continually investing back in their business.
