Seventy percent of Americans are disengaged or unsatisfied at their jobs. Evolving employee attitudes and expectations are to blame for this, according to research by the same Gallup poll.
Most workers, many of whom are millennials, approach a role and company with a highly-defined set of expectations. They want their work to have meaning and purpose, and they want to use their talents and strengths every day. For many creative types seeking a fulfilling career, corporate America just doesn’t cut it.
Here’s why SpeedPro Imaging could be the perfect franchise opportunity and creative outlet for you:
Create Your Own Culture
Creating your own work environment and company culture is one of the most rewarding parts of being a business owner. Within a franchise system, some entrepreneurs worry they’ll miss out on the opportunity to build a culture they love. But with the right brand, you’ll have all the backing and support you need, without sacrificing your autonomy.
While some franchise brands are more restrictive, SpeedPro allows you to run your business the way you want. There are many common threads among SpeedPro franchisees – they love variety in their day and the fast-paced, collaborative studio environment. But, no two franchisees, markets or studios are exactly alike. So, even though we all share the SpeedPro name, our corporate team won’t encroach on your day-to-day operations.
We provide you all the tools, support and resources you need to take your success to the next level. But, we won’t do so at the cost of your autonomy and flexibility. You can create the environment you want, and run your business exactly how you like.
Use Your Creative Skills Every Day
With SpeedPro, your creativity doesn’t begin and end with designing your studio and creating your culture. You get to flex your creative muscles every day with your design and graphic work.
As a SpeedPro franchisee, you’re not just a printer – you’re a solutions provider. In that way, you’re an extension of every client’s marketing department. You have to work with them to understand their long-term objectives, while finding custom design solutions to help them accomplish those goals. Not only do you have to use your creative vision to make graphics, you also need to find creative solutions to help clients.
Experiment with Experiential Graphics
Each client is different, and each of their objectives and projects are unique. With the growing popularity of experiential graphics, SpeedPro franchisees have been able to get even more creative with their designs. The possibilities for large-scale graphics in experiential design are endless.
SpeedPro Imaging Chicago owner Shira Kollins recently re-created Moe’s Tavern from The Simpsons for a pop-up bar. She even used her business and creativity to custom-build removable wallpaper and dance floor for her own wedding.
Another testament to the power of experiential graphics was SpeedPro franchisee Steve Moran-Cassese’s work rebranding Hewlett Packard’s headquarters. Or, SpeedPro’s Mark Simmons showcasing his talents by transforming a plain-looking car dealership showroom into a Polynesian beach-themed landscape.
It’s no surprise that business owners report higher job satisfaction than employees stuck in a corporate machine. Not only do entrepreneurs enjoy the freedom to create whatever work environment they want, they can also center their product or services on their own strengths. And, with the SpeedPro Imaging business opportunity, they get to use their creativity every day.
