A new business-to-business marketing franchise has made its way to the midstate.
Image360 designs signs and other marketing materials for businesses, but the location at 3950 Tecport Drive in Swatara Township, Dauphin County, is open to the public and does accept walk-in business, according to Ed Naill, a company outside sales representative and one of three employees at the new location.
Image360 moved in early in May and opened June 1 ahead of Wednesday's ceremonial grand opening. Naill said planning for the store had been going on for almost two years.
Image 360 is the third company in the signs and graphics division of Michigan-based Alliance Franchise Brands. The division is based in Columbia, Md., and also counts Signs by Tomorrow as one of its companies. Signs by Tomorrow has three midstate locations in Cumberland, Lancaster and York counties. The third company, Signs Now, has a location in Hanover.
Rob Kaun, the owner of the York location in Springettsbury Township and a former owner of the Lancaster County location, is the owner of the Image360 store.
He said Image360 is more focused on marketing solutions than just signage.
Image 360 has another Pennsylvania location in Pittsburgh.
