There’s a lot to consider when selecting a franchise to invest in. Many entrepreneurs are drawn to new concepts that haven’t completely flooded the industry. At the same time, they want to trust that the business model is stable and proven in the marketplace. It’s tough to find brands that have struck that balance—but SpeedPro has!
SpeedPro, one of the nation’s leading large-format printing franchises, offers new studio owners the perfect mix of growth and opportunity. With around 170 locations, we’ve proven our business’s traction and demand, but there’s still a ton of room for new franchisees to join our family! Learn more about how this makes SpeedPro such an attractive model.
A proven concept
One of the biggest benefits of joining a franchise system is a proven business concept. Entrepreneurs face less risk because the brand has succeeded in other markets. Buying into an established business helps you feel secure in your ability to thrive.
A proven concept is exactly what SpeedPro delivers to its franchise owners. Our B2B light manufacturing business started franchising in Canada in 1996 and expanded to the U.S. franchising market in 2003. Over the past 20 years, our growth has been phenomenal, providing international opportunities and tremendous growth potential to our owners. Now, we have nearly 170 studios—more than proving our concept in the marketplace.
This history and growth has allowed us to deliver bigger and better benefits to our franchisees. We’ve built a strong national network with substantial buying power and close vendor relationships. And, we’re constantly researching and innovating to stay on the leading edge of the wide-format printing industry. Both these things help franchisees maintain high profit margins and large competitive advantages year over year.
We’ve even gone beyond that and created a Kickstart program that helps brand-new studios. Existing studio owners mentor and support new owners before they can even open their doors, helping both the brand and the studio alike. What this means for aspiring franchisees is that they can trust SpeedPro to offer the tools, support and proven concepts that will elevate them to success.
The industry holds immense potential
While our history and growth thus far is certainly important, what matters more is what lies ahead. Nobody wants to invest in a business that has oversaturated the market or an industry that might fall off in a few short years. But soon-to-be studio owners don’t need to fear! Our industry and market hold plentiful opportunities for existing and new businesses alike. SpeedPro’s potential as a franchise has not even come close to being maxed out.
It’s no secret that the large-format printing industry continues to grow. Out-of-home advertising is an evergreen industry that experts believe is here to stay. New businesses are coming online each day, meaning more potential clients for SpeedPro studios across the nation. New printer technologies are also making new products possible, giving us more opportunities to offer creative solutions. Each of these trends demonstrate tremendous potential for brands like SpeedPro.
Our regional territories also leave a lot of room for growth. Despite having 170 studio locations, new owners have an abundance of choice. We still have territories available in almost every major market across the United States, and we’re even expanding internationally!
Think about the number of small businesses you pass every day in your hometown. Now add the number of schools, churches, nonprofits and event spaces nearby. Add in the number of corporations that have a branch or are headquartered in your city. It’s probably a ton of organizations! All of these—and more—are potential customer segments for a SpeedPro studio. When you consider that the majority of small businesses spend an average of $10,000 to $50,000 per year on marketing and advertising, it’s clear how much potential is still out there.
Opportunity is abundant
SpeedPro’s proven concept and opportunity for future growth is a combination aspiring franchise owners do not want to miss. If you’re looking for a stable business model with nearly endless growth potential, don’t pass up your opportunity!
