Small business ownership isn’t known for being especially simple. There’s a lot of research and effort involved in making sure your business model is set up for a successful launch. This is part of the reason franchising is so appealing to entrepreneurs; a lot of the hard work is done for you.
At SpeedPro, we take pride in the simplicity our large-format printing franchise offers new owners. From our startup package, to our robust training plan, to our Studio Ramp-Up program, we make it easy for franchisees to hit the ground running quickly. Here’s how.
High-quality printers, cutters and other equipment are critical to the successful operation of a business like SpeedPro. But the industry is always changing. New technologies refine the printing process and provide better, faster, and more sustainable products. It would require a tremendous amount of research and development for owners to stay up to date on the latest printing innovations.
Fortunately, SpeedPro takes the guesswork and difficulty out of launching a large-format print business. Each new Studio owner gets our turnkey startup package as part of their franchise investment. This package includes the printers, materials and office supplies they need to get their business up and running quickly. What’s more, new SpeedPro franchise owners can start selling, processing, and handling orders before their Studio even opens its doors. How many businesses can do that? Not many!
Franchisees don’t need to spend days or weeks researching and testing to find the right equipment for their business. We’ve done the heavy lifting on the innovation front and pass that along to every owner for their immediate use!
Both entrepreneurs with and without printing experience can be successful in the SpeedPro model. How? Because we ensure everyone is equally up to speed through our robust training program. New owners can bring their unique experience to the business and rely on us to fill in the rest.
After signing the franchise agreement, new owners are put through the SpeedPro onboarding process, which includes a two-week intensive training period at our Denver, Colorado, home office. Over those two weeks, owners learn everything they need to know about franchise management, sales, equipment operation and production. This sets the stage for each franchisee to get started without a steep or extended learning curve. Just two weeks, and you’ll be ready to open for business!
Education doesn’t stop there, either. SpeedPro provides ongoing training and support to keep owners up to speed on industry changes, new equipment and materials and more. This allows franchisees to continue learning and growing as a SpeedPro owner for even greater success.
The first few months are critical to a new business’s success. The decisions you make and your sales performance as you get up and running can lay the groundwork for future performance. SpeedPro understands that there’s a lot of stress surrounding the launch of a new Studio, which is why we created the Ramp-Up program.
This program allows new owners to get to work even before they open their Studio doors. SpeedPro consultants work closely with each owner to teach them about our products, explore marketing efforts and sales tactics to pave the path toward success. Then, new owners are partnered with a buddy Studio nearby to begin fulfilling orders for new clients.
What our Ramp-Up program does is allow franchisees to build a new client pool and begin generating revenue as early as possible. This minimizes the stress of the initial startup period by letting new owners really hit the ground running.
