In 2001, one year after getting its start in West Palm Beach, Florida, EmbroidMe was ranked by Entrepreneur Magazine as the number one embroidery franchise in the world. More than a decade later, EmbroidMe continues to lead the way with franchises in more than ten countries and is the premier promotional marketing partner for businesses around the world. Whether customers desire embroidered apparel, uniforms, or branded pens, cups, keychains and more, EmbroidMe’s broad range of products and services provide branding and messaging solutions for every business’ needs. Not only do clients view our products as fun and exciting, but they are in fact consumable. And as promotional items are given away at tradeshows and events, our store owners attribute much of their success to repeat business.
Backed by United Franchise Group, parent company to industry-leading franchises, such a SIGNARAMA, Plan Ahead Events, Transworld Business Advisors, Billboard Connection and SuperGreen Solutions, EmbroidMe is a proven business, backed by more than 25 years of franchising by an organization committed to success.
Due to a solid franchising history, United Franchise Group is backed by several of the world’s largest franchise financing programs and organizations allowing them to offer a wide variety of solutions to help entrepreneurs achieve their dreams of business ownership. A $50 billion a year industry, the promotional products industry has an incredibly broad customer base as nearly every company has branding needs for embroidered apparel and promotional products to that we at EmbroidMe can meet.
I chose EmbroidMe because I liked the concept of the franchise, the way they have it set up, the support system. We looked at several franchises and everything that we found through EmbroidMe and UFG just fit us perfectly.
With unparalleled support and all the tools necessary for success, EmbroidMe is a turnkey franchise that provides everything you need to launch your new business, including the necessary equipment to perform direct to garment printing and embroidery. Most EmbroidMe franchisees come to us with little or no experience in the embroidery industry and most have never owned a business. A professional attitude and hunger for success are the key components necessary to begin the five-week training process.
Training begins with two weeks in sunny South Florida at the United Franchise Group corporate headquarters. During this time, classroom instruction and production training will teach you all the fundamental aspects of the business. We will show you how to hire and train your production staff, and will review production and equipment training. Although our owners typically don’t perform much of the production, it’s important to have a working knowledge of how your equipment operates.
Our CEO, Ray Titus, is hands-on, passionate about our brands and likes to get to know each franchisee personally. You too will be able to sit down with Ray during your initial two-week training. After your two weeks have come to a close, you’ll then spend a week training on-site at a mentor store, learning all the aspects of the business. You will work with an established owner, who will continue to mentor you, especially important through the first few months of starting your business. The final two weeks of your training will happen on-site at your store. We will send a representative to your location to spend time with you reviewing equipment operation, local business marketing, and helping to establish the contacts you will need to launch your new business.
The number of topics that are covered in training are as diverse as what you need to know to run the business. But certainly, sales and more than just the vanilla here’s how to sell. This is how to sell this product, this is how to sell it to this industry. Here’s your game plan and your numbers and all the things that if I went out into business for myself, I’d have to figure that out on my own.
After your five-week training session is over, our support continues. One-on-one session with our field representatives offer ongoing support, helping to identify new growth and profit strategies. We provide ongoing marketing programs to support you and your business, including our customizable virtual shopping portal that allows you to offer 24/7 online ordering to your customers. We also provide targeted advertising campaigns and an in-house public relations and marketing team committed to promoting and growing the EmbroidMe brand….See the rest of the script: http://goo.gl/w6qr9
