In February 2018, Judith Hoefer realized her dream of becoming a business owner when she decided to buy an established Minuteman Press franchise in Marietta, Georgia. Judith says, “The challenge of building the business myself, with the help of my small team, is a great feeling. The addition of back office systems, management advice, and partnerships that come with the franchise is a good safety net and confidence builder. I also have flexibility to work around my kids’ schedules, so I make it to all of their games.”

As one of the most highly-anticipated events Signs Express Ltd has held in its 30-year history, the 2019 Convention at the Home of England Rugby, Twickenham Stadium, was hailed as a huge success.
Kicking off the conference was a memorable speech from Managing Director, Jonathan Bean, highlighting the achievements of the Signs Express network and Franchise Support Centre team, all contributing to the overall network performance growth in 2018.

Dale Lipsky owns the Minuteman Press design, marketing, and printing franchise located in the Northgate Center at 1316 7th St NW, Rochester, MN 55901. On January 19th, Dale and his dedicated team at Minuteman Press supported the 65th Eagles Cancer Telethon, which is the longest televised telethon in the nation.

Jessica and Mike Hauck used to be clients of Minuteman Press in Sioux Falls. With corporate backgrounds in hotel sales and commercial real estate, it would make sense that they would rely on the locally owned printing franchise to fulfill their design, marketing, and promotional needs. When the opportunity came to buy the business, Jessica and Mike decided that Minuteman Press International was a natural fit and the right franchise for them. They are now celebrating one year as business owners at their Sioux Falls center located at 125 S Main Ave.

For Jerri Matthews, Brian Matthews, and Jeremy Hinson, opening their family-run Minuteman Press design, marketing, and printing franchise in Victorville, CA was a natural fit.

My mom Jerri has a strong accounting background, which really helps us on the financial side of the business. My stepdad Brian loves to meet new people and has a natural, easy approach that helps us with direct marketing and networking with other local business owners."
