SpeedPro’s Newest Franchise Owner, Mike Slaton, Says Affluent Business Community Makes North Palm Beach a Perfect Fit for the B2B Company

(North Palm Beach, FL – March 22nd, 2017) – SpeedPro, the nation’s leading printing and graphics franchise, is set to open its newest location serving North Palm Beach, Florida in late May. The new studio will be equipped to handle any large format imaging project for local businesses, such as wall murals, event graphics, trade show displays, vehicle wraps, window graphics, and more.

The SpeedPro North Palm Beach will be owned and operated by local franchise owner Mike Slaton. The native Floridian brings more than two decades worth of retail managerial experience to SpeedPro.   Working for one of the world’s most recognizable retail chains, Mike enjoyed a lot of success, earned several promotions and even met his wife.   However, their professional obligations all-too-often resulted in decreased family time and Mike was seeking a better work-life balance.

Under the guidance of franchise consultant Scott Diener, Mike discovered the SpeedPro franchise opportunity. After reviewing the business opportunity in depth, Mike jumped at the chance to join the nation’s leading printing and graphics franchise because it was a high upside investment that allowed him to spend considerably more time with his kids.

“It was extremely tough missing out on seeing my kids achieve big milestones and accomplishments,” says Mike. “Now I have a chance to watch them grow up as I grow professionally. SpeedPro affords me the opportunity to work on my passion of art. It’s clear SpeedPro is a powerful national brand, provides long-term financial stability and awards locations exclusively to franchise owners who are a great fit for the system.”

Mike adds that the nation’s leading printing and graphics franchise will allow him to take full advantage of countless business opportunities North Palm Beach has to offer.

“It’s a win-win from my perspective,” says Mike. “Outdoor living plays a significant role here in the North Palm Beach area. There’s a strong demand from the affluent businesses to capitalize on the area’s beautiful scenery. With SpeedPro’s large format printing solutions, I will be able to meet that demand.   Plus, the SpeedPro business model provides my wife, Alexandra, and I the perfect opportunity to work together as her financial acumen parallels my skills very well.   I am excited to work with her while also spending more quality time with our family.”

Despite just getting started, Mike expects to ramp up his SpeedPro studio sales in the first year due to SpeedPro’s Ramp-Up Program. With the Ramp-Up program, Mike has already begun building his list of paying clients and bottom line profit, even before opening his physical studio location.  SpeedPro’s Cheif Operating Officer, Steven Brown, believes Mike’s goals for rapid growth are realistic considering his skill set and the success similar owners have experienced.

“We are thrilled to open our next Florida-based SpeedPro studio and we’re confident Mike will be able to scale his business quickly,” says Steven.   “He possesses a perfect blend of skills that are an excellent fit for our business model.   He’s personable, experienced, and willing to get his hands dirty with his employees.   He understands the level of quality and professionalism our clients expect of our state-of-the-art graphics.   We’re excited to see Mike grow our North Palm Beach presence and believe he can meet or exceed his first-year growth expectations.”

SpeedPro has a nationwide network of 126 studios in 31 states, nearly a third of which have opened in the last three years alone. SpeedPro delivers superior display graphic products to deliver key messages and extend brand awareness on behalf of their clients.   The company’s mission is to be considered the premier choice for large format graphics and exceed our client’s expectations through unmatched timeliness, professionalism, and product quality.

As the nation’s leading printing and graphics franchise, SpeedPro can handle any printing project on behalf of their clients, including:
