Discover the Many Benefits of SpeedPro Ownership

June 16, 2021

Cost and experience are two important factors to consider when determining whether a franchise opportunity is right for you. However, examining the benefits a brand has to offer is just as important—and way more fun!

At SpeedPro, one of the nation’s leading wide-format printing providers, becoming an owner unlocks a host of exciting benefits that allow you to find joy both inside and outside of work. We aim to ensure SpeedPro is not just a job but an enriching business opportunity that positions franchisees for success. Check out some of the biggest benefits we offer our owners.

High profit margins

Operating a SpeedPro studio not only provides the opportunity for diverse client verticals and repeat business—it also delivers high profit margins. The cost of goods for many of our large-format products, like banners, is relatively inexpensive thanks to national vendor pricing. This leaves more money in your pocket at the end of the day. On average, SpeedPro franchises have an estimated 68% gross profit margin (per 2021 FDD Item 19).

Great work-life balance

Many entrepreneurs turn to franchise systems as a way to gain greater control over their schedules. SpeedPro gives owners ample opportunities to set their own hours and spend time on the things that truly matter.

Because SpeedPro is solely a B2B light manufacturing operation, studios run on non-retail hours to align with local businesses. Owners enjoy evenings and weekends off to spend time with family and work on their passions and hobbies.

Even better, there’s no long-distance travel involved. You’ll work with local companies to complete their print projects, leaving you with more time to spend at home.

Grow at your own pace

When you first open your SpeedPro studio, you’re able to operate the business with few employees to start. As you bring on new clients, you have the freedom to hire more staff and grow as large as you desire.

This alleviates some of the stress owners might feel when launching a new business, providing more stability and the opportunity for expansion when you’re ready. Growth is completely possible, but you’ll be able to achieve it at a pace you’re comfortable with.

High Net Promoter Score

A brand’s Net Promoter Score® (NPS) uses surveys to measure customer experience and predict business growth. In a past NPS survey of SpeedPro customers across the country, our brand received an NPS of 95%!

That score is quite high for the industry, and it’s even higher than many popular brands like Nordstrom’s. Our NPS just goes to show how much SpeedPro customers value our studios’ professionalism, high-quality products and reliability. No wonder our brand is known for repeat business!

Consistently growing industry

Investing in a business means investing in the industry behind it. SpeedPro owners get the benefit of being part of an industry that has experienced consistent year-over-year growth. Organizations are turning to large-format printing more often for Great. Big. Graphics. that grab customers’ attention.

The global large-format printer market is projected to grow to $11.2 billion by 2025. SpeedPro owners are able to capitalize on this growth by providing local businesses with high-quality wall murals, window graphics, vehicle wraps and other wide-format print products.

Stay on the cutting edge

For 20 years, SpeedPro has served as a leader in technology and innovation within the large-format printing industry. We stay on the cutting edge of technology, equipment and training as the industry evolves.

This is a win for everyone. Our customers benefit from the latest in high-quality printing methods—meaning better products—and our franchisees benefit from consistent training and the sales our industry-leading processes draw in.

If these benefits sound appealing, investing in a SpeedPro studio might be right for you! Contact us today to learn more about our franchise opportunities.

SpeedPro Has Partners – Not Clients

June 1, 2021

Without customers, no business would succeed. However, at SpeedPro, we don’t view our customers as single-interaction clients. Instead, our business model relies on strong long-term relationships with customer partners who turn to us for repeat large-format printing projects.

Because these partnerships are so vital to your studio’s success, our business is a great match for franchisees who are skilled at networking and take pride in building business relationships. Take a closer look at what we mean when we say we have partners, not clients.

Relationships are the foundation of our business

SpeedPro’s customers span the B2B market, from local small businesses to large corporations to universities and everything in between. These organizations have the potential to become repeat clients, returning for new large-format print products for annual events, rebrands and more. Relationship building is important with each sale to encourage businesses to return.

However, two of our major client segments are even more relationship-oriented, with SpeedPro serving as a true strategic partner in their operations. Small-format printers are some of our greatest partners because our services do not compete with theirs. SpeedPro can be a white-label partner of these businesses, expanding their product lines and driving your revenue. After building relationships with small-format printers in your area, you’ll benefit from ongoing business from their clients who are in need of large-format products they don’t offer.

Advertising and event agencies are also natural partners of SpeedPro. The role we serve in this segment is that of a vendor, providing wholesale print products for the agencies’ pool of clients. In doing so, SpeedPro increases the value of both businesses’ offerings.

Both of these types of partnerships are mutually beneficial. Small-format printers are able to offer a larger suite of products to their clients without investing in large-format printers themselves. Event agencies are able to please clients by providing them seamless design and printing experiences. And, SpeedPro benefits from diversified revenue streams, access to existing pools of clients and repeat business that helps your studio grow.

Over time, these strong partnerships will allow your studio to scale, bringing more opportunities your way and allowing you to have an even greater impact in your area—whether that’s by working with new customers or expanding your product line.

Building long-term relationships with all customers—from agencies to educational institutions—allows you to discover their printing needs and deliver innovative solutions that meet them. This is one of the reasons SpeedPro customers return to studios again and again. Our owners take the time to understand their goals and work with them as a partner—not just a provider.

SpeedPro owners excel at networking and relationship building

SpeedPro owners don’t spend their days operating machinery and installing vehicle wraps. Instead, they are the face of their business, networking with prospective clients and proposing solutions to land the sale. Naturally, this means our owners are both business-minded and relationship-oriented.

In order to secure new customers, SpeedPro owners must be outgoing and understand where to look to find potential partners. Of course, customers want to feel understood and supported, especially when they’re investing in large-format print products that will be seen by hundreds or thousands of people. They don’t merely want you to sell something—they want to make sure your vision and goals are aligned. The ability to connect with customers, forge those deep relationships and build trust in your partnership are necessary components of SpeedPro ownership.

Do you consider yourself a natural at helping people as a solutions provider? You might be an excellent contender for SpeedPro ownership! Reach out today to learn more about our franchise opportunities and how you can put your relationship-building skills to good use.
