May 23, 2012 // Franchising.com // SEATTLE – Instant Imprints, North America’s innovative franchise network of promotional products and sign retail centers, announced today that it has signed an agreement to expand the brand throughout the state of Washington.
Under the agreement, Gagan Bhathal, who has successfully owned and operated multiple Instant Imprints centers in Vancouver, British Columbia and the surrounding suburbs since 2008, can market the franchise opportunity to other motivated, small business-oriented people in Washington. He is currently the Area Franchisee for the Canadian province of British Columbia, and is experiencing significant growth.
The chance to teach others the proven business model and sales processes is what Bhathal welcomes most about the investment he’s made in becoming Washington’s area franchisee.
“When you buy a franchise you want to feel good about the support and guidance you are going to receive. This is the point Gagan will focus on most and it’s why we are so confident in their abilities,” said Ralph Askar, who heads franchisor operations for Instant Imprints as the president and CEO of the company. “He is passionate about teaching others how to get their business up and running, build sales leads and close deals. Less than 2 percent of franchises have a process of teaching business development to their franchisees. That’s where Gagan comes in."
Expansion into Washington is part of the company’s aggressive North American development plan, which calls for more than 500 new centers throughout the United States and Canada. Currently, there is an existing Instant Imprints center in Vancouver, Wash.
As part of the Instant Imprints franchise model, area franchise owners and franchisees have the support of the Instant Imprints experienced leadership team from start to finish. Complete with comprehensive training, site selection support, marketing programs and strong vendor programs of the Instant Imprints business model that has been cultivated to cater to high quality candidates that understand the value of the proven system.
