SpeedPro Franchise Overview
They produce Great. Big. Graphics. Custom Business Signs. A facelift for windows, walls, floors, ceilings, trade show, events, vehicles, you name it. They add inspiring images and bold branding so any surface can make a statement.
From the evolution of hand-painted signs to innovative digital printing, SpeedPro has remained a leader in the wide-format graphics industry. Our story began when Blair Gran opened the first SpeedPro Signs shop in Alberta, Canada. Blair was the product of a sign-making family and combined his family’s reputation for excellence with new technology. His innovative techniques increased productivity and provided customers with more options than ever before.
In 1991, Blair’s model proved so successful that he began franchising SpeedPro Signs in 1996 in Canada. The SpeedPro brand became synonymous with creative imaging solutions and service that was tailored to businesses. SpeedPro became more than just a vendor for its customers – it became a partner.
In 2001, Blair once again revolutionized his franchise empire by integrating the desktop computer with wide-format, full-color processing. SpeedPro became one of the first major franchises to shift into wide-format image production and away from sign-making. It was also at this time “Imaging” was added to the SpeedPro name. This change allowed businesses who had never had access to wide-format printing or imaging to find affordable solutions, creating an entirely new market in which SpeedPro continues to excel to this day.
In 2003, SpeedPro began franchising in the USA with three locations in the Dallas, Texas market. In 2014, SpeedPro was acquired by a new ownership group and in 2017, Larry Oberly joined the company as President/CEO. In 2019, SpeedPro reimaged its brand appearance and SpeedPro continues to fuel a drive and passion for success.
