Franchise appoints VP of Franchise Sales, launches new website
DENVER – SpeedPro Imaging, the nation’s leader in large-format imagery, has made an addition to its Franchise Development team by appointing Ryan Reeves as the Vice President of Franchise Sales.
In his new role, Reeves is responsible for new and traditional franchise partnerships. Alongside Vice President of Franchise Development Steve Phelps, Reeves hopes to lead the company’s expansion plans of opening 20-25 new studios annually, in addition to having more than 200 operating units by 2020.
Reeves brings extensive leadership and franchise experience to SpeedPro Imaging, previously holding prominent directorial positions at McAlister’s Deli and Dickey’s Barbecue Pit. His former business endeavors also include both individual franchise unit sales, and configuring multi-unit and area development relationships. While serving at the Senior Director of Franchise Sales at Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, Reeves and his team grew the brand more than 600 percent in less than six years.
“I am thrilled to begin this journey with SpeedPro’s dynamic franchise team,” said Reeves. “At a time when rapid technological changes continue to transform the printing industry, I believe that SpeedPro’s shared integrity, transparency and brand values are what lead to strong franchisee partnerships.”
In addition to the appointment, SpeedPro launched its new franchise development website. The updates include a sleek design with appealing visuals and videos that allow visitors to easily maneuver the website. The site also outlines the franchise partnership process, detailing the steps from its conception, to signing the agreement, and the support received to help get them get as profitable as possible.
“One thing we wanted to emphasize through our new website is our unique support system—we have one field consultant for every five franchisees, as oppose to other concepts that average one for every 30,” said CEO Boris Katsnelson. “With our latest appointment of Ryan Reeves and our new website launch, we are excited to enter the fourth quarter with high velocity.”
