Local Minuteman Press Franchise Named Business of the Week by Newport County Chamber of Commerce

Minuteman Press of Aquidneck Island, which offers digital print, design and marketing solutions, was recently named Business of the Week by the Newport County Chamber of Commerce.

MIDDLETOWN, R.I.–A local Minuteman Press franchise was recently named Business of the Week by the Newport County Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with Humphrey’s Building Supply, AM 1540 WADK and MIXX 99.3 FM. This impressive award honors and rewards a local business for being an integral part of the community of greater Newport County, Rhode Island. The Minuteman Press Franchise Review sat down with franchise owner Helen Andromalos to learn more about her experience, which included a live radio interview on WADK’s “Talk of the Town” Chamber of Commerce segment on Thursday, May 28, and to congratulate her for being recognized for excellence in the community.

In addition, Minuteman Press Regional Vice President Ron Rubin shared the following remarks on Helen’s accomplishment: “I am very proud of Helen Andromalos because in less than 4 years, she has become a real force on Aquidneck Island with her local Minuteman Press franchise. She is very deserving of being named Business of the Week as Helen is a huge asset to the community she serves. Helen has followed the Minuteman Press digital print, design and marketing franchise formula and it is great to see her recognized for her efforts.”

Congratulations Helen on being names Business of the Week! Before we get to that, can you tell me a little bit about your background before you became a franchise owner with Minuteman Press?
Before I owned the franchise, I was a Nuclear Cardiology Technologist for 25 years. I lost my job due to a radioactive shortage when the reactor in Canada went down.

When did you open your Minuteman Press franchise?
Mid July will be 4 years.

What does it mean to you to be recognized by Newport County Chamber of Commerce as Business of the Week?
To be recognized means I have become an integral part of the county and getting a reputation in the town for quality work, trust and gaining the respect of the community. All my hard work is paying off.

How would you describe your experience at the radio station and what was the interview like?
