SpeedPro Imaging continues its national expansion by inking another franchise deal in the greater Chicagoland area.
Randy Davidson has been granted the new SpeedPro Imaging studio that will serve the northwestern suburbs of Chicago. This marks the sixth studio to enter the Chicagoland market with company plans for 2 to 4 more in the next few years.
“SpeedPro Imaging’s executive team, continued national growth, and overall quality service are just a few of the reasons why I decided to become a franchise partner,” said Davidson. “I believe that my prior experience coupled with SpeedPro will lead to great success.”
Prior to owning his SpeedPro franchise, Davidson owned 4th & 23rd Restaurant, a blues and jazz venue, and also worked as the Director of Events for 11 years at Randall-Reilly—a media company based in Tuscaloosa, Alabama that sells exhibit space, sponsorships, and produces 20 proprietary annual trade shows, events, and conferences nationally.
With his wife’s travel demands growing to a weekly air commute from Alabama to Illinois as a vice president in marketing, Davidson and his family decided to make the official move to Chicago. Wanting to leave the corporate world and dive back into entrepreneurship and with his extensive experience working with events, he found SpeedPro Imaging to be the perfect fit.
With over 20 years of experience, SpeedPro Imaging specialises in wide-format printing, including wall murals, event graphics, tradeshow displays, vehicle wraps, and window graphics. In addition to providing such graphics to local and national businesses, the company also caters to sign shops and printers on a wholesale basis.
“A strong visual marketing campaign is paramount to a business’s success. If you need eye-catching graphics that will make a difference for your company, you need to partner with us,” said Davidson, who also plans to offer full service marketing solutions including campaign strategy development and implementation.
SpeedPro currently has a nationwide network of more than 125 studios in 31 states, nearly a third of which have opened in the last three years alone.
