In 2011, a large format and signage division was added to better serve clients and fill additional needs. In 2013, an apparel and promotional products division was also added to establish a foothold in the growing promotional product and branded clothing industry.

Curell is also focused on future growth, actively engaging in the franchise process to take the companies to a more local level in all 50 U.S. states, allowing others to own their own Better Deal Printing or The Coffee Peddlers franchise in their community.
