“I was writing to let you know my experience with Jessica when she was in my store on the technical set up.
I found her to be quite knowledgeable and thorough. She had a list of what needed to be covered and made sure everything was addressed. In addition, she stayed well past closing time to help with the store set up which had only been partially completed. That was above and beyond what she was sent to do. I truly applaud her for that.”

“I spent four years looking for different franchises, looking to acquire different businesses and that was after a 30 year corporate career in the oil and gas industry. I was very particular about the kind of franchise that I selected and Transworld leadership was something that impressed me, their business model impressed me, and all the stars aligned with Transworld. It worked; it was a good fit for me.”

“Every step forward has been a positive step forward, and the people that we’ve evolved with in the company, whether it’s been a current franchising or corporate training staff, has been absolutely brilliant. You’ll never get that support being an independent operator. Just the amount of information that’s available right at your fingertips… you can never replace what’s been put in place for us.”
– Adam H.
“Being a Transworld franchisee has worked out great for me. It’s a wonderful business model; we’ve had two or three very successful years over the last three years. Last year was particularly very successful for us, we closed fifteen transactions. I like it because our world is different every day. Every business we deal with is different, every transaction is different, it’s always a challenge-and I like that.”

“UFG does a great job of supporting its franchisees. Primarily one of the big things for me is getting us access to vendors that we might never have access to. UFG is able to grease the skids and make those relationships happen, so that’s a really big benefit for us.”

“Nearly every aspect of my career has had a significant presence of Apple devices in some way. I loved my career, but it became apparent that it was time for a career change. My experience working with Apple was just one of many reasons why Experimac stood out as the perfect opportunity for me. I love being at the cutting edge of technology and Apple platforms have always represented the peak of advanced computing. I’ve quit a job because they wouldn’t let me use Apple products, which says it all about my dedication to the brand.
There’s such an incredible demand for Apple products, but the reality is they’re often expensive when purchased new. There’s a large audience that wants those products but cannot afford the latest versions. People don’t fully realize that you can go back a few generations of Apple products and still have an effective product. This is what makes Experimac such an intriguing brand. I’m proud to be the first of what stands to be many Experimac locations around the country.”

“After my first 2 years as a EmbroidMe Franchisee with no field help and questionable so called help after that Michelle Longueira was a breath of fresh air. She has supported our store for the last 2 years and what a difference she has made.
Coming from a management position I realize the difficulty of being in the middle and being required to wear two hats, one as a company person and one as a franchisee. She does this impeccably well. I find her to be dedicated, enthusiastic, reliable, and enthusiastic about her position and responsibilities.
I could go on and on about Michelle. I am so glad we have her as our field support and UFG should be too.”

“Hi Dan, I am the new owner of the Singarama on Hillsborough Street in Raleigh, NC. We had a major issue yesterday when we could not get our Mutoh printer to work. We had Time Warner Cable (TWC) out here the day before with a different issue and thought that they had fixed it, but after they left, we had a bigger problem that caused some major network issues.
We contacted Nic Mayo, and he came out first thing in the morning, got on the phone with TWC and had the problem fixed within the hour! My designer had spent more than three hours the previous afternoon on the phone with TWC and got no where with them.
I just wanted to thank Nic for all he has done for us and continues to do. Whenever we have exhausted all of our efforts on issues, its Nic to the rescue! Nic exemplifies the utmost in professionalism and never lets us down! Please make sure that Nic knows how much we appreciate him.”

“In my regular company, which is Regency Park Development, which is a hedge fund, we invest in different projects around the country and we purposely invested in SuperGreen Atlanta because of UFG. The support they give with the operational end of it is very important. We focus on sales and provide them with input regarding marketing efforts and they’ve been very responsive to what our needs have been.”
– Lawton H.
“Batchi and I wanted to extend special thanks for your outstanding and productive training you provided us last week. Every moment of every day contributed to our long way of learning and developing within EmbroidMe and this industry. Your teaching was detailed and thorough, your knowledge is admirable.
I enjoyed the long Quickbook//vision conversation we had till the very late hours of the night. I hope something will come out of it.”

“Apple devices are only growing in popularity and the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a business that hadn’t yet made it to North Carolina to help more people to gain access to them was perfect for me.”
– Jeff P.
“I was immediately grabbed by Experimac’s unique approach and felt there was a big hole in the market in offering pre-owned Apple products at the retail level. Experimac fills that hole by giving customers eager for Apple devices a level of access to them that they might not otherwise have.”
– Travis H.
“For the week of 1-7 thru 1-11, Nic Mayo’s presence was very beneficial. I was shown and explained some tips to speed up production which has already helped me this week. We also discussed tips on more effective time management techniques. Another thing that has come of this is the importance of sketches in the job boxes which does help out on my end tremendously. I am looking forward to the time I will spend in the Raleigh store to help me better understand the substrates and their uses as well as learn more tips from the other production people to help in my own growth. Plus the chance to go on a few installs will be great as it will make me better understand what I can do on the production end to make the install go faster and smoother. Overall this was an informative week that has helped raise morale and to educate me on things to

“I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for making Aaron available to us on Tuesday. We have a new designer and have been having problems with our plotter settings, which is now corrected, but Aaron also taught us how to laminate and contour cut on the Roland for a job we had to have completed that same day. We were all amazed at some of the tricks and tools Aaron demonstrated in Flexi – our designer was extremely impressed!
Aaron always spends time with me going over P & L’s, etc., and we spent some time on that Tuesday. According to Aaron, we have a “letter perfect” P & L!
And as always, we go over basically all aspects of our store’s operation. I always gain so much from those conversations.
Aaron has been my “rock” since we purchased the store 6 years ago. Please know that his time, experience and support are very, very much appreciated.
We also received a very informative visit from Mark Zimmerman, our new Regional VP, this morning. As a result, we are stepping back and restructuring our roles in the store in an effort to increase sales volume and manage production more efficiently. After speaking with both Aaron and Mark,we are also moving up our target date to transition to SignVox. I think the suggestion to purchase an ipad for outside sales is a “must do”, and as budget allows, a large flat screen for the design/production area. It was truly an amazing, rejuvenating morning.
Again, please know how thankful Alan and I are to have had these opportunities.”

“I want to thank Signarama for having us a part of the family. This has been a great, exciting time for us, as we move from our corporate careers into building our own business. And it’s been a wonderful trip, between the training in West Palm to the set-up and the technical folks coming up here and putting us completely together. We moved out of the corporate world because it was simply a time for change for both of us, me and my wife. And, this has been wonderful so far. We are so looking forward to being a part of this family for as long as it takes us to get where we want to be. Thank you.”

“I love owning a Transworld Business Advisors for a couple different reasons. One, I’m passionate about business and I’m passionate about entrepreneurship, so being able to see a number of different businesses and helping owners buy and sell these businesses is great. It’s a huge learning experience, I’ve probably learned more about the business world in the last two years than I have my entire career.
Two, it is more towards a lifestyle business. We have a physical office, but we don’t have to be there. We’re from Colorado; we love to ski and hike. We’ve done meetings in the gondola, we’ve done meetings on camping trips, my husband goes hunting with our attorneys every year. So, that’s very attractive as well.”
– Jessica F.
“The thing that attracted me to SuperGreen Solutions was really the industry in and of itself. It combined two things that were important to me, technology and being in a pioneering industry. That’s what the green industry is and that’s what SuperGreen Solutions is. So, it was a compelling opportunity for me to combine two things that I’m passionate about.
I really wanted a business where I could pursue financial gains like anyone else and be able to support my family but I also wanted to do something fun. I said the next thing that I would do would be something that I’d be passionate about, something I could have fun with, and something that could make a difference. I think that SuperGreen really presents the opportunity to do those things.”

“We chose Signarama because we wanted to have a tested, tried and true business model that we could jump into and get into the business. It was really an imperative that it supported our family right away, and Signarama has proven to be just that model.”

“I Just wanted to send you a brief email to let you know about the always exceptional support we get from Michelle Longueira.
I recently hired an ORS who will be representing both my EmbroidMe store as well as our neighboring Sign-A-Rama. We’re all very excited about the partnering synergy with our sister company as we market to the same customer base as a “One Stop” Branding source.
Michelle and Bob Wakeley (for Sign-A-Rama) spent the better part of a day with us, reviewing our combined goals with our new rep, outlining the EME and SAR models, spending time on the road with our new rep making marketing calls (which turned into actual orders within just a few hours), and then provided us (the store owners) with ideas on how best to make this work.
I can’t thank Michelle enough for her continued commitment to insuring we have the tools we need to achieve success. If and when we get there, it will be due in a very large part to Michelle’s guidance and support.
Hold on to her with “white knuckles”.”
– Jeff H.
“Signarama was such a natural choice for us because the financial decision was an easy one to make. We could see that it could be successful, but it was also a great fit for us culturally. It was aligned with our values and what was important to us about a balance with family and business. So when we met the company we thought, ‘This is a perfect fit.’”
– Maggie H.
“I was born and raised in the franchise business and it wasn’t anything like what EmbroidMe offers. They did not lead my dad in a good path and so therefore I just didn’t believe in franchises until I went down to discovery days. And I sat down with people and talked to them there and then Ray finally told everything what we could and couldn’t have with it. And I was like, ‘If you can do everything that you just told me, I’ll sign today.’ They have supported and backed up pretty much everything that they said they can do. So, it’s been pretty amazing. It’s been a fantastic business. It changes. It’s different. It’s not the same day in and day out. It’s exciting.”

“I didn’t get a chance to thank you for your help this month. I greatly appreciate you doing whatever we needed. With your assistance we are having our best month since I returned to ownership.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!”

“I don’t want to let a second tick by without communicating how much we appreciate you & UFG sending in Nic Mayo to assist us as we search for a new Art Dept. / Production Manager. As you know, our business model is unique to the system and it takes the right individual to come in & hit the ground running. Quite honestly, with the exception of Stuart Hamilton when he was in that capacity, no O.A. has ever been able to keep up in our environment nor did they portray a desire to really dig in and see what makes our operation different than the standard Sign-A-Rama. It was evident in the first :15 minutes that Nic is in the same cut as Stuart. Nic made an immediate impact in our operation. He interacted positively with our staff, zeroed in on problem production areas and coached our staff up without them ever feeling like “the guy from corporate is too good for us”. It takes a special person to make a positive impact on every single person in an operation and Nic did just that. Honestly, it was sad to see him go today.
Gentlemen…..you have a valuable asset in Nic Mayo. I am sure UFG has keen insight and sees just what I am saying. I look forward to seeing him develop within the system because I see good things ahead for him with SAR.”

“Good Afternoon! My name is Brandi Benson and I am the CAS at the newly opened EmbroidMe of Gulfport. I have had a really busy week and I am sorry that I am just getting a chance to Email you. I wanted to let you know how much I was impressed by Jessica! She was our cooperate trainer last week. She was extremely knowledgeable and sweet! What a great catch you all have there with her! Thank you so much for sending such a great girl to train us! I can’t imagine anyone better over there in EME Cooperate Land!”

“I chose EmbroidMe because I had a big connection with the community, and after a lot of research… I thought it was a perfect fit. The support that they had, and easing into this business as opposed to the business that I had was a perfect fit for me.”
