William Grewe owns Minuteman Press in Bloomington, MN and he recognizes and appreciates the long-established respect and trust emanating from his brand that assures the hearts and minds of clients all over the world in need of a loyal partner within the business services industry. Other print options simply do not offer complete marketing services with a personal investment in whatever the clients’ mission might be, making them little more than Minuteman Press ripoffs, to put it frankly. William’s clients are pleased to rely upon his products and services and some came to him based on the five-star reputation carried by his franchisor, Minuteman Press International.
William, says, “Minuteman Press franchisees introduce their own values and personalities, as the local face of the Minuteman Press brand. Every decision we make to benefit our customers’ design, print, and promotion efforts potentially affects other franchisees. Such was our experience with a new customer, who chose our local Minuteman Press franchise when they moved to Bloomington, MN, because of their previous experience with two other Minuteman Press locations in Pennsylvania and Florida. When their advertising partner told them they could save money by bidding out the jobs to multiple print vendors, our customer told them to shop at Minuteman Press. When our pricing was in line with their experience in other states, the relationship was started. So far, this new customer has placed thousands of dollars in orders, and we do everything in our power to provide the same excellent service locally in Minnesota.”
- Pro Tip on BRAND IDENTITY: “We do take our corporate identity very seriously and with good reason. It is vital for our owners to understand the importance of branding and one of the reasons is because they are promoting the brand through their clients and every time they do so, our brand becomes more powerful. The truth is that a great number of franchise owners get jobs from across the world just because of the strength of our branding.” – Jack Panzer, Area Manager for Minuteman Press International in Arizona / Colorado
“Loyalty cannot be blueprinted. It cannot be produced on an assembly line. In fact, it cannot be manufactured at all, for its origin is the human heart-the center of self-respect and human dignity. It is a force which leaps into being only when conditions are exactly right for it-and it is a force very sensitive to betrayal.” – Maurice R. Franks, professor of law at Southern University
It can be said that we live in a more isolated society that has become increasingly detached in ways we used to seek solace in face-to-face mentorship as people are enticed by the idea of do-it-yourself, point-and-click ordering for everything from our food to the essential needs of the businesses we hope will take off and grow. As noble as it may seem to come up with a concept for a business, think up a design and try to print it all your own, it isn’t wise and it isn’t necessary. Over several continents and by the thousands, B2B clients are greatly comforted by the loyalty given to them and the meaningful results garnered through their partnership with Minuteman Press.
