Michael Kile

We took a few minutes and talked with Michael Kile of Carmel, Indiana about his experience of becoming an AlphaGraphics Owner.


After successfully building the company’s operating systems into a scalable business model, AlphaGraphics’ predecessor company began offering franchise opportunities to entrepreneurs in 1979. In 1984, the company began desktop publishing. By the late 80s, AlphaGraphics was aggressively pursuing the global marketplace and began its international expansion.

In 2018, the company moved its headquarters to Lakewood, CO from Salt Lake City, Utah. As of December 31, 2019, there were 273 AlphaGraphics franchised or licensed businesses located in the United States, Brazil, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, and the United Kingdom, with more printing franchise opportunities throughout the United States.
