Family-Owned Minuteman Press Printing and Marketing Franchise Open for Business in Victorville, California
VICTORVILLE, Calif. – 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. Jeremy explains, "We chose to own a Minuteman Press franchise because our skillsets fit right in line with the business. My background in graphic design and being in the sign and graphics industry for many years gives me the ability to create designs and products. 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."
Prior to franchising with Minuteman Press International, Jerri Matthews worked as a tax accountant for over 30 years. She also spent the previous 14 years self-employed with her business partner Elaine. Jerri says, "What I really like about the Minuteman Press franchise is the support system, from the regional reps helping us with the initial setup and day to day questions to everyone back at MPIHQ helping with our equipment leases, vendors and making sure we have the tools we need to be competitive in our local market."
Together, Jerri, Jeremy, and Brian form a dynamic team and they are working hard to build relationships in the Victor Valley community. "We have enjoyed being able to get involved in community events and attending Chamber of Commerce functions. It gives us a whole new perspective on the impact we can make as small business owners. We recently awarded a $500 academic scholarship to a local student, helping them attend college and study law. Having the Minuteman Press franchise allowed us to do this and will continue to allow our family to contribute to our community in meaningful ways."
Dan Byers is Minuteman Press International Regional Vice President for Southern California. He says, "Minuteman Press in Victorville has a wide variety of innovative products and services to offer their clients and I congratulate Jerri, Jeremy, and Brian on their fruitful efforts to build relationships and build their business. They are a proactive team and it is great to see them getting out there in the community and making a positive impact."
What are the rewards of owning a business? Jeremy answers, "So far this has been very rewarding. It's a great feeling to help local businesses with their branding and marketing, growing their business along with our own. We enjoy working with new people and providing them with the quality and service that Minuteman Press is known for. We’re gaining new customers and friends every day!"
