Mike and Jessica Hauck were once clients of the Sioux Falls Minuteman Press. Their backgrounds were in commercial real estate and hotel sales, so it was only logical that they used a local print franchise business for their promo, marketing and design needs. When there was an opportunity to buy this business, Mike and Jessica decided that the print, marketing and design franchise was the right fit for them, and they are now celebrating the end of their first year as franchisees of the Sioux Falls location.
Jessica is motivated by being able to help clients with the same level of customer service and care that she received as a client at that location. According to Jessica, the business-to-business nature of this franchise and the chance to network were very appealing to the couple, in addition to the brand’s track record, national franchise rankings and royalty caps.
The modern print industry is very versatile, which makes for a diverse client base from multiple industries. The Haucks have seen clients from RV dealers and event planners to medical and financial institutions. They have forged a particularly strong relationship with agricultural veterinarian service provider Sioux Nation Ag and have also done many projects for prominent local event planning business The Event Company.
This brand offers a wide variety of services and products to businesses, including the design and printing of standard items such as stationery, business cards and note cards to more unique products such as banners, stickers and magnets. Promo items that can be customized for a business include glassware, kitchen gadgets, key chains, apparel, coffee mugs and pens.
Over the last year, the Haucks say they feel rewarded by the work that they are doing and enjoy being able to help clients promote their own businesses. They're also glad to assist nonprofit organizations in raising funds for local causes.
Since they are now part of the Minuteman Press family of franchisees, the Haucks have the freedom to operate their business while still receiving corporate and local support whenever they need it. The couple was new to the print industry, so having support there when they had concerns or questions made a huge difference right from the start. Jessica also says that the support from other franchisees has been outstanding and that the brand’s strong SEO program is delivering results for their location online.
