The SpeedPro vision statement helps clarify just how important franchise owners are to the success of our brand:
Through national and international expansion, SpeedPro will create a network of integrated studios that will enable our franchisees to more efficiently serve highly visible and highly profitable accounts that will change the face of businesses across the world.
It’s with this goal in mind that we strive to be the most supportive wide-format printing franchise brand out there. And we make good on that objective through the systems we’ve established – from our Ramp-Up Program to the ongoing training and support we provide studio owners.
Get Started on the Right Foot with Initial Training
One of the key differentiators of SpeedPro is how much we invest in getting franchise owners up and running as efficiently and effectively as possible. Here’s a quick breakdown of what that looks like:
10-day intensive training – Conducted onsite at your new studio, members of SpeedPro’s training and support team help you understand:
•The wide array of products and solutions you’ll be providing
•Techniques necessary to correctly apply wide-format graphics
•The equipment and tools you’ll be using to create your clients’ products
•How to operate your studio on a day-to-day basis
Your initial training will also equip you with strategies for new customer acquisition. Since SpeedPro is a business-to-business (B2B) franchise opportunity, it’s critical that you are able to build relationships with other business owners in the community to facilitate your studio’s growth.
With that in mind, we help walk you through the typical client lifecycle, including creating job quotes, fulfilling orders and demonstrating best practices tactics to provide exceptional customer experiences.
Once your initial training is complete, SpeedPro’s support team is there to ensure you stay on the right track.
Ongoing Support for Wide-Format Printing Franchise Owners
When you join the SpeedPro franchise system, you’re never alone. You’re joining an experienced group of franchise owners who operate more than 130 studios across the country. They’re resources for you as you maneuver through your initial ramp-up period.
We have a buddy studio program that establishes partnerships between you and existing SpeedPro owners, which helps you build a network of referrals. In many cases, you’re able to start on jobs even before your studio officially opens. The relationship you form with your buddy studio is meant to be long-lasting – you’re able to rely on your fellow franchisees whenever you’re in need.
At the same time, we’ve structured our franchise system so that each studio owner has an unparalleled level of support from our field consultants and regional developers. Each one of these individuals has:
•Owned and operated their own business
•Experience in the wide-format printing industry
•A keen understanding of the franchise business model
In addition to having extensive business experience, our field consultants are uniquely trained and equipped to provide studio owners with insights and strategies to help them achieve their specific business objectives. Those may be identifying opportunities to work on projects with higher profit margins, develop tactics to facilitate more repeat business or assisting with making sure your profit and loss (P&L) statements are in great shape.
We’re able to offer an exceptional level of support because of the ratio of field consultants to franchisees, which is 1:12. Most franchise systems are somewhere in the neighborhood of 1:20 or 1:40, which reduces the amount of one-on-one attention they can provide to franchise owners. Whether you have questions about your equipment or are in need of technical support, our support team and field consultants are there to ensure you’re operating at peak performance.
