SpeedPro of Saint Petersburg – On a Mission to Inspire a Community of Giving

Every community is made up of many small individual components, and St. Petersburg is no different. From local shops to area centers for the arts, the St. Petersburg community clearly stands out for its passion and excellence. These aspects of our area create the look and feel of the community we love. And SpeedPro is proud to contribute in a very positive way to the support and advancement of the greater St. Petersburg area. 

For Michael McKenny, owner of SpeedPro, his passion for the St. Petersburg community is easy to see. As a native-born ‘Burger, Michael has dedicated his life and business in helping make the St. Petersburg community better and stronger. This not only shows in the level of quality that he and his team provide to all clients, but it is similarly evident in his giving and charity work. And it’s his hope that he can serve as an inspiration for others to do the same.

Embracing a Community Conscious Approach

As St. Petersburg’s large format printing partner, SpeedPro naturally empowers many small businesses and individuals toward greater success. By providing a wide array of large format printing services, the needs of businesses, organizations, and individuals can be not only addressed quickly and efficiently. But SpeedPro also meets these needs through highly personalized attention and the highest quality work. These are the little things that strengthen a community on a daily basis. 

But Michael and his wife Holly go well beyond these efforts. With a heart for others, they regularly make charitable contributions to worthy community causes. Major charity efforts have involved those associated with Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County, and the Glazer Children’s Museum. Likewise, SpeedPro supports numerous area schools, athletic organizations, centers for the arts, and local charity chapters for the less fortunate. This has been a major reason why SpeedPro is well recognized as a valuable St. Petersburg community partner.

The Perfect Partners for Your Charity Event

In addition to inspiring others to give to the St. Petersburg through their own charitable giving, SpeedPro also provides the best quality products and services for charity events and galas. SpeedPro excels in high quality event tents and graphics as well as banners, signs, and wall murals. In addition, non-profit organizations may be interested in vehicle wraps and other graphics to spread the word about their mission and purpose. The extensive array of services is a major reason why many charities and non-profits have decided to partner with SpeedPro for their large format printing needs. 

In addition to the quality of their products and services, SpeedPro can also help with design creation. With graphic designers on staff, SpeedPro has become recognized as one of the community’s “coolest” companies, creating some of the most unique and innovative designs around. SpeedPro recognizes the creative, artistic culture inherent to St. Petersburg. And as a result, SpeedPro is proud to further contribute to this important aspect of the St. Petersburg community.

Making Charity and a Passion for Community Contagious

When it comes to giving, charity is not only personally rewarding but also quite empowering. Giving back to one’s community provides personal meaning and offers a true sense of fulfillment. By appreciating that each of us needs help from time to time, we can gain a greater sense of humility in our perspective through charity. And the more one gives, the importance of these actions become increasingly recognized as being essential to a strong community. 

After spending 15 years in the corporate sector, Michael McKenny wanted to do something different with his life. He wanted to build something special and be a part of his local community. Today, he has realized this dream in SpeedPro, a business that honors and regularly supports the entire St. Petersburg community. And hopefully, along the way, he will continue to inspire others to do the same, helping St. Petersburg attain its fullest potential. Through quality services, customer commitment, and compassion for others in need, SpeedPro is committed to making St. Petersburg the best it can be.
