Amidst Industry Consolidation, Rapid Refill Focuses On Customer Value With Speed and Expertise
February 21, 2013 // Franchising.com // EDINA, MN. – Rapid Refill, the nation’s second largest print supplies and service franchise system, has developed a suite of print solutions that are focused on customer value and convenience, capped by its Same-Day Business Delivery Service.
“As retail office giants Office Depot and OfficeMax announce they are entering into a merger to better compete in the big box space, we are reminded of the importance of individual relationships with our small and medium business customers,” says Rapid Refill President, Jason Block. “Locally owned Rapid Refill locations are able to be more responsive to customer needs where big box stores tend to be slower moving and not as cost efficient in the print supplies segment. We are there for our customers with a full service experience, including maintenance and repair, not just retailing.”
In this day and age, small businesses not only desire, but require, fast, convenient and cost effective solutions. Rapid Refill’s same-day business delivery service is the ultimate print products solution combining cost savings, expert print service and customer convenience. "
Beyond rapid fast delivery, locally owned Rapid Refill locations provide expert guidance to small businesses for new printer purchases that will deliver the best print experience for the customer’s needs and the lowest cost printing, as well as follow-on printer maintenance and repair.
Tampa, FL Rapid Refill franchisee, Bob Giest, adds “Our business is built on individual customer relationships. We are focused every day to make sure our customers have a great print experience, from the right printer, to the right supplies, at the right price, and do it all on their schedule, not ours.”
Block believes that Rapid Refill is poised for strong growth, even amid industry consolidation, “This industry has been significantly impacted by changing customer behaviors, new technologies and reduced economic activity, but that has pushed us to re-focus on our customers and to make sure that we are providing end to end solutions with the level of expertise businesses need. It has been difficult, but we are providing more value to our customers today than we were a few years ago.”
