For more than 20 years, SpeedPro has stood at the forefront of the wide-format printing industry, providing enterprising entrepreneurs with the opportunity to build a business uniquely positioned in the business-to-business franchise sector.
Across the United States, there are over 130 SpeedPro Imaging studios owned and operated by local business owners who are able to capitalize on a business model built around minimal staff, repeat clientele and high-margin projects that provide exceptional opportunities to scale and grow.
It’s for these and many other reasons that SpeedPro continues to be recognized by the franchise industry and larger business communities.
Here’s just a sampling of some of our recent accolades:
10 Years and Counting as a Leading Large-Format Graphics Franchise
We were once again recognized in the exclusive Franchise 500® by Entrepreneur. Since 2009, SpeedPro has been included in the prestigious ranking, reflecting our consistently strong growth and our dedication to helping franchisees succeed at the unit level – in fact, we have one field consultant for every 12 franchise business owners, which is a far better ratio than the 1:20-40 average you see across franchising.
The magazine evaluates franchise brands based on a number of key factors, including costs and fees, size and growth, corporate support, brand strength and financial strength. All franchises are given a cumulative score based on more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500® in ranking order.
SpeedPro was also selected by Franchise Gator as a Top 100 franchise for 2019. This is the 6th annual Top 100 list the online franchise directory has been released and was developed to assist prospective franchisees in their search for a franchise opportunity to invest in. The list focuses on identifying franchisors with strong growth potential at an investment level that is more in line with the average franchise buyer.
SpeedPro is ranked as the number 53 franchise opportunity overall. The ranking was developed using a formula based on several criteria including financial stability, growth, sustainability, profitability, transparency and franchisee satisfaction.
“Each opportunity on the Top 100 list has demonstrated strong growth potential coming into the new year,” said Eric Bell, General Manager at Franchise Gator. “Not only are these opportunities among the very best in the industry, but they also offer a solid investment for the everyday franchise buyer.”
Innovation at the Heart of Our Wide-Format Printing Franchise
In addition to franchise industry recognition, SpeedPro Imaging was recently included among the “The 10 Most Innovative Print Management Companies 2018,” according to Insights Success, a magazine dedicated to providing business leaders and executives with a platform for sharing their experiences and perspectives.
A contributing factor to the recognition is the fact that SpeedPro is leading the way in wide-format printing technology and solutions, which is the fastest growing segment of the printing industry.
With brand messaging and advertising proliferating across digital channels, an increasing number of companies are seeking solutions to reach and influence their target audiences using large-format graphics, including exterior signage, wall murals, window decals, vehicle wraps and a wide variety of other graphics. Clients seek out SpeedPro franchisees on a consultative basis, working with them as an extension of their marketing and advertising teams to bring their projects to life.
