Monday, August 27, 2012

Both franchisees and salespeople around the country recognized at numerous award ceremonies throughout the three-day event.

The annual Sir Speedy, PIP Printing and Marketing Services and Signal Graphics International Convention and Vendor Show was recently held in Baltimore August 15-18 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Franchise owners and salespeople from around the country were presented with sales achievement and other recognition awards during the three-day event that encompassed keynote presentations, general sessions and the largest trade show of any printing and marketing services company.

Each year the Franchisee of the Year Award is given to a franchisee who has demonstrated his or her belief in the franchising concept, who has promoted, supported and encouraged franchising, and who supports the franchise network. The 2012 Sir Speedy Franchisee of the Year Award was presented to Reuven and Susy Kanner of Miami Lakes, FL, and the 2012 PIP Franchisee of the Year Award was presented to Jimmy and Judy Brumley of Burlington, NC. This is the second time the Brumley's have received this award and the first time in history that a PIP franchisee has received the award twice.

Top Volume Awards went to George Coriaty of Sir Speedy, Whittier, CA, The Fulner Family of PIP in Indianapolis, IN and Nashville, TN, and Riley and Kay Gunnels of Signal Graphics in Atlantic City, NJ. The International Top Volume Award went to Fred Torres of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In addition, a Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Art and Dannie Weber of Winston-Salem, NC in recognition of their 40 years with the Sir Speedy network.

Awards were also given to franchisees and salespeople in the following categories: Top 10, Top 25, Volume Increase Percentage, Century Club, Million Dollar Club, Sales Achievement Awards, Application Innovation Awards, and Quick Printing magazine's Top 100 Award given to seven Sir Speedy locations, five PIP's and one Signal Graphics.
