SpeedPro Imaging, the Nation’s Leader in Large Format Imagery, Says Thanks on Thanksgiving!
October 3, 1863 is when President Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving a national holiday. At the time, he directed Thanksgiving to be celebrated on the last Thursday of November. President Franklin Roosevelt later decided to celebrate Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday of November (to allow for more shopping days).
As we prepare for Thanksgiving, to sit-down at the table in the presence of our loved ones, partake in long-standing traditions and watch some football, SpeedPro Imaging, the nation’s leader in large-format imagery, has plenty to be thankful for. That includes our fantastic and diverse group of clients who allow us to produce magnificent works of art on their behalf.
SpeedPro Imaging is extremely grateful for our hard-working, always-learning, dedicated staff and employees who have helped make our company a household name nationwide.
We would be remiss if we didn’t give thanks to our group of studio owners. The men and women who decided to become business owners, and determined that SpeedPro Imaging, the nation’s leading printing and graphics franchise, was the path that would lead to their professional and personal growth.
At this moment, we’ll share some words from our studio owners – your neighbors, friends and entrusted business partners – on what they’re thankful for this Thanksgiving.
Matt and Kelly Kettler- SpeedPro Imaging of Fort Collins
Owning a small local business and running it as a husband and wife team has shown our young children the value of hard work and teamwork. There is no greater team than a family unit and to be able to work together in both personal goals and business goals, sharing in both the stresses and the successes has made us a powerhouse team!
Being SpeedPro owners has allowed us to become more involved in our local community. There is a lot of pride in being locally owned and family operated that has encouraged us to also support other small local businesses. That in turn has created friendships and relationships that are better than anything we’d ever anticipated!
Sean Stenson– SpeedPro Imaging of Jacksonville West
After 20+ years of corporate travel, I am thankful for the SpeedPro opportunity. It has allowed me to spend more time with my family. Both of my kids were in high school when we purchased our franchise, so this has given me valuable time with them before they go out and make their own impact on the world.
Outside of the family rewards I have received, I get great satisfaction in connecting other local business owners together so that we all have an opportunity to be successful. The business relationships that have developed during my short time as a SpeedPro Franchise Owner are amazing. They never would have occurred if I had not purchased my franchise.
John Barber– SpeedPro Imaging of Norcross
I am grateful to be a SpeedPro owner as the tools, processes, training and brand enable me to work as hard and “smart” as I want to be successful.
Being an owner also gives me the opportunity to support local businesses with their wide-graphics needs, with the highest quality finished product and a commitment to order accuracy and on-time delivery.
Our SpeedPro studio has a commitment to support churches and the Marcus Jewish Community Center, schools for children with learning differences and non-profits with preferential pricing and donations.
SpeedPro Imaging...the best post-corporate career decision I have made!
Jon Graber- SpeedPro Imaging of Mount Vernon/NYC
I am thankful for my staff who allow me to run the studio the way I envision it, and for the great network of owners we have. The advice and help are priceless, and it is one of the main reasons that SpeedPro Imaging is in the position it is in.
Owning and running your own business has been a great change for me. Deciding how I want my studio to look and the type of clients I am trying to partner with is one of the most enjoyable aspects of owning my own business. We have gone out of our way to partner with local businesses and most are looking to do the same. It is such a vital aspect of our business as they are truly the best source of quality referrals.
We are thankful for their commitment to making SpeedPro Imaging the nation’s leader in large-format imagery. If you’re looking for a change in your life, one that you will be thankful of, you can learn more about franchising opportunities at speedprofranchising.com.
From our SpeedPro Imaging family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!
