Wonders never cease in space but in business, the most important things are clearly defined!
In October 2017, the research team at CERN went back to the drawing board in yet another attempt to uncover the reason our universe exists despite a huge contradiction it presents. Our steadfast physics model demands that every antimatter particle cancels out its respective matter particle, leaving ZERO…nothing. This means the universe itself should not exist. Scientists study the magnetism of protons and antiprotons and continue to fail to discover differences that would explain why the universe has not been obliterated.
Fortunately, the answers leading to smart business ownership are not nearly that complicated and business is booming thanks to a method devoid of such frustration…
The best franchise opportunities exist because seasoned experts have defined the model…and everything makes perfect sense.
Minuteman Press International’s Pacific Northwest Regional Vice President, Chris Jutt, has traveled to multiple regions of the world where he has seen and supported a great variety of people as they respect and put great energy into the brand. He says, “I have found over years of watching many people succeed in multiple states and countries, that the common denominator is good, old fashioned, hard work. In my observation, one of the largest unknown factor influencing how well a new Minuteman Press franchise owner will do is how much work he or she is ready to put into their enterprise.”
Chris and his colleagues observe and support intrepid franchise owners as they put the proven system into practice. Each of them demonstrate the printing industry leader’s constant presence as a documented method of building a solid business.
“If Minuteman Press International tells me there’s a great vendor, I do not have to second-guess that. I can count on it. So far, everything has worked out.” – Sean Miller, Minuteman Press Escondido, CA
Matt Peretz, Minuteman Press International Vice President at the World Headquarters in Farmingdale, NY, helps people move away from things that do not make sense. He presents franchise ownership for what it is, a system that is proven with evidence apparent in the lives of so many current and retired franchisees. Matt says, “When you go to a Minuteman Press franchise you are gaining a far greater experience for a number of reasons vs. going to an independent printer and the first one is the simple fact that it is a franchise.”
Unlike our scientists at CERN who are trying to figure out why what is documented is not adding up correctly in reality, Matt is in the position to show people that what is documented as success for Minuteman Press International can be trusted.
For Minuteman Press franchise owners, more than four decades of a proven system at work for them are, in reality, adding up to an entrepreneurial universe that is expanding. A big part of the reason is while so many things are uncertain, the franchise system he represents has depth that can be relied upon as continual and well-supported from many angles. “You are not getting the knowledge of only the few people at the store but rather, you are getting the knowledge of the entire franchise system,” he adds confidently.
Sean Miller has used the proven system to build success with his Minuteman Press franchise in Escondido, CA. He credits the certainty provided by a franchisor with buying power for helping him secure large clients. In his words, “It is an incredible challenge, but building business is what I do.”
Sean Miller says he could not do some of the bigger projects without two things:
- The initial training I had from Minuteman Press International (part of which showed me how to tackle big apparel projects)
- The vendor resources that my franchisor provides to me to fulfill these projects on a local level with advantageous pricing
“I have my franchisor and all the resources, vendors, great assistance and availability that they offer. I can count on them whenever I have questions on how to do things. Dan Byers and all local representatives have all been greatly involved,” Sean says confidently.
He adds, “A big reason we bought a Minuteman Press franchise after talking to other owners is because the praise for the support they get was 100%. And since I opened my business, I have had help with everything from employees, to pricing, to the everyday running of the business. It’s a constant learning game. I am always learning something new from someone else and I use it to run my business in a better way. From the franchise and from fellow owners, through their trial and error we grow.”
The universe has no predictable end defined in physical cosmology, but the wisest franchise owners have exit strategies outlined by a franchisor who supports them through their entire business lifecycle
The most successful franchise owners have a well-planned exit strategy in place when they have completed their tenure, and Bruce Mezistrano’s predecessor is among them. When people are trained and fully supported throughout their careers as Minuteman Press International assures their owners will be, they are able to create satisfying lives and are able to be graceful when it is time to move on, even willing to help with the transfer of power to their successor. “I am the 3rd owner of an existing franchise that opened in Bellevue, WA, more than 3 decades ago. Like all Minuteman Press franchise owners, I met the previous owner, Majid, and he is still so helpful during this transition. I was new to the printing industry, so I welcomed the help and we have become good friends. He often comes by to check up on me.”
One of the most thrilling things about studying the universe is its unpredictability. However, people building businesses find proven systems and reliability far more thrilling, particularly when they wish to close one chapter and begin another.
For those wishing to eliminate nerve-wracking puzzles and limit unpredictability with their professional investments, Chris Jutt speaks about the reliability and security that comes from being in a franchise family such as the one he represents: “One of the best things about being part of the Minuteman Press family is that you have all the benefits and pride of owning your own business while being in business FOR yourself but not BY yourself.”
He concludes with refreshing certainty, “It is as if you always have a big brother looking over your shoulder and always in your corner, helping you build and promote your business. You also have a team around you of fellow Minuteman Press owners willing to lend a hand or advice when needed.”
So let the scientists debate the great mysteries in space and be excited about the Minuteman Press franchise experts who do have the answers here, right now. They are the ones that help entrepreneurs create whole new universes in which personal and professional symmetry is not a troublesome contradiction; it is a life-enhancing reward.
