Instant Imprints Hires VP of Field Support and Training

Business Development Consultant Mike Boyd Promoted to Newly Created Position to Support Growing Franchisee Population

October 15, 2014 // // SAN DIEGO – Instant Imprints, North America's innovative network of promotional products, sign and digital printing centers, announced the appointment of franchise growth expert Mike Boyd to Vice President of Field Support and Training.

"With our aggressive expansion plans underway, we need someone with Mike's expertise to provide support and training to our franchisees," said Ralph Askar, president and CEO of San Diego-based Instant Imprints. "He has a proven track record of supplying the support new and seasoned franchisees need in order to continue to perform at top levels."

Prior to this promotion, Boyd worked as a consultant for Instant Imprints. During this time he was instrumental in creating a training program for franchisees that teaches business development, as less than two percent of franchises teach these skills. Boyd has also helped with training and development at his wife's, Linda, Instant Imprints store in Louisville, Colorado. Before joining Instant Imprints, the couple owned two McDonald's and Boyd was a training and operations manager for McDonald's regional office.

"I am excited to continue working with the franchisees through the training and mentorship programs," said Boyd, who is a mentor to many. "Our franchisees are incredibly motivated individuals and we want to give them the best foundation of knowledge and tools to grow sales and profit as soon as possible. I am thrilled to be a part of the process."

This new position comes amid Instant Imprints aggressive North American development phase, which calls for more than 500 new centers throughout the United States and Canada. Boyd's promotion supports the brands continued focus on franchisee support and development.

"My entire career has revolved around teaching and coaching professionals. From McDonald's to Instant Imprints, developing effective ways to provide support is what I do," said Boyd, who spearheaded Instant Imprints' training program initiative. "I've seen what it takes for a franchise concept to grow and to separate itself from competitors. Instant Imprints is a great concept and I'm excited to further my involvement with the brand."

Awarding single unit and Area Franchise Agreements, as well as Master License developer opportunities around the globe, the Instant Imprints investment is ripe for experienced franchise investors as well as individuals transitioning into entrepreneurship from corporate positions.

Complete with comprehensive training, site selection support, marketing programs and the purchasing power of the Instant Imprints' network, the business model has been cultivated to cater to high quality candidates that understand the value of the proven system. The Instant Imprints franchise fee starts at $34,950 ($24,950 for Veterans).
