Dublin & Columbus, Ohio, February  27, 2020 – Minuteman Press Dublin franchise owner Ken Barton was featured in a Forbes Franchises article about what it’s like to own a business and enter into franchising at 50 or older.

Ken owns and operates the printing franchise in Dublin, Ohio. He previously had a 35-year career as a CPA and became a franchisee in his 50’s.

“I loved helping clients understand the financial aspect of their businesses and started to think about finding an opportunity to apply some of the skills that I had learned over the years.  I wanted to find a business where I could surround myself with a team of people that could take care of customers so that I didn’t feel like I had to be hands on each day in the business. Also, it was important to me to find a franchised concept that was proven and to buy an existing location rather than opening a new franchised location.”

Ken was recently celebrated when he joined the Minuteman Press International President’s Million-Dollar Circle in 2019. Only 10% of 900 franchisees receive this status.  The Minuteman team is active in supporting the community and was the recent recipient of the February Business of the Month award from the Dublin City Schools.  Ken continues to provide support and advice to new Minuteman franchise owners.
