SpeedPro Imaging Franchise Costs & Fees
Date of Incorporation: 2004
Franchising Since: 2005
Headquarters: Centennial, Colorado
Business Description: The franchisor is SP Franchising LLC. A SpeedPro Imaging franchise sells premium, large format printing, reprographics and related services to business clients.
Franchise Offer: The franchisor offers franchises to operate a single SpeedPro Imaging Studio. Studios provide premium, large format printing, reprographic services (reprographic services are reproductions of graphics through mechanical or electrical means, such as photography or xerography, commonly used in catalogs, archives, and the architectural, engineering, and construction industries), and related services.
Financial Assistance: The franchisor does not offer direct or indirect financing. The franchisor does not guarantee a franchisee’s note, lease or any other obligation.
Training and Assistance: Before the Studio opens for business, the franchisor will make available to franchisees and their employees initial training at the Studio location or, at its option, at the franchisor’s headquarters (currently located in Centennial, Colorado). The program consists of a total of 96 hours of training. Initial training for transfers is conducted on an as needed basis. It consists of a total of 64 hours of training. The franchisor periodically may require that previously trained franchisees attend and participate in retraining or refresher courses. The franchisor does not currently charge for these retraining or refresher courses but it reserves the right to charge its then-current training rates for these courses, and franchisees are also responsible for paying the costs of travel, lodging, food, and compensation for them and their employees. In addition, franchisees are required to attend the annual franchisee convention.
Territory: When franchisees sign the Franchise Agreement, the franchisor will identify an area within which franchisees will be permitted to operate the Studio. Franchisees must locate the Studio within their Territory. A typical Territory includes approximately 5,000 businesses. The Territory will be identified in the Summary Pages of the Franchise Agreement in terms of geographic boundaries.
Term of Agreement and Renewal: The length of the initial franchise term is 10 years. Franchisees have the right to renew for two additional terms of 10 years if they are not in default under the Franchise Agreement, the lease for the Studio or any other agreement relating to the Studio, and they have substantially complied with the Franchise Agreement and the Standards.
Obligations and Restrictions: Franchisees are obligated to continuously promote and enhance the Studio, including performing one-on-one awareness marketing. If franchisees are an individual, they must devote efforts to the Studio on a full-time basis and directly supervise the Studio on its premises, and must attend and successfully complete the initial training program. If the franchisee is a corporation or other legal entity, the Studio must be directly supervised, on-site by a general manager (who does not need to be an owner), who meets the franchisor’s standards and qualifications and who must attend and successfully complete our initial training program. Franchisees may offer and sell only those products and services that the franchisor authorizes for sale and those products and services not prohibited from sale by the terms of the lease of the premises upon which the Studio is located. In addition, the Studio may not be used for any purpose other than as allowed by the Franchise Agreement.
