  • New Growth Opportunities Spotlighted at Sir Speedy Annual Convention & Vendor Show

    Sold-out vendor show and an agenda packed with educational seminars, keynote presentations and awards delivered enthusiasm to franchisees and their salespeople.

    The Sir Speedy Annual Convention and Vendor Show was recently held at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, California, July 26-29. The event kicked off with a welcome reception at the Hyatt Regency Long Beach and concluded with an awards dinner at the convention center where the Sir Speedy franchisee of the year was announced.

    The Sir Speedy Franchisee of the Year went to Michael & Rita LeVangie and Laurence & Anna Nye of Orlando, FL. Many other awards were presented to franchisees during the convention including the Top 25, Top 10, Volume Increase Percentage (VIP), Century Club, and Million Dollar. Salesperson awards were also presented to top salespeople in the Sir Speedy network.

    “Revenues for our franchise network have exceeded industry averages over the last ten years due to our tenacious franchisees who are embracing expanded products and services such as signs, labels and packaging to position their businesses for growth,” said Richard Lowe, President and COO. “All award recipients have done an outstanding job transforming their businesses and they are thriving. I am so proud of their efforts.”

    A highlight of the annual event is the Vendor Show, which is the largest U.S.-based tradeshow in the graphics communications industry. A record number of booths and vendor partners were present this year to showcase their products and services. Exhibiting companies included Canon, Exact Data, Grimco, HP, Konica Minolta, Signs365, Xerox and others. For the fifth year in a row, Ricoh was the signature sponsor. 

    Mark Ryan of Signs365 said, “We continue to enjoy a successful, mutually beneficial relationship with the Franchise Services family of brands and this year’s show in Long Beach was further testament to our valued relationship. The convention and vendor show continues to be a great place to meet and collaborate with franchisees. The ability to connect with our valued partners is what makes this event an asset to our partnership. We look forward to seeing everyone in Orlando next year.”

    Guest keynote speakers included Kate Dunn, Director at InfoTrends, who shared research and industry best practices for hiring and managing salespeople. Bryan Flanagan, sales trainer and author, inspired the audience on how to create a high-performance sales culture. President and COO, Richard Lowe provided an industry update and shared critical success factors for growth. Kelly Kimberlin, Vice President of Business Development, hosted a panel of experts showcasing new products and services. David Robidoux, Vice President of Marketing, presented many new marketing resources and programs for helping franchisees best promote their businesses.
