knowledge of the print industry to open a new AlphaGraphics business center in
the upstate New York area. Service holds a bachelor's degree in electrical
engineering and a master's in software development from the Rochester

Army veteran allowed him to take advantage of the International Franchising
Association's VetFran program.
"I visited existing centers as I was evaluating the AlphaGraphics opportunity,
and I saw products being used there that I helped bring to market with Xerox,"
Service stated. "It is exciting to know that I will draw on that experience
while serving customers as a marketing services provider. I have been very
impressed with AlphaGraphics as a company and with the entire staff."

computer systems maintenance and administration, and most recently owned a web

her marketing expertise. The Ayoubs are in the process of acquiring an
AlphaGraphics business center in New England.
