  • Brookfield Promotional Products Business Draws Success

    Thirty years ago, newly immigrated Martin Allen could be excused if he confused the Americanized version of soccer with the popular sport known in his native Great Britain as football. Today, however, he makes it his business to know his adopted country's spectator sports. Since May of 2003, Martin and his wife, Jean, have been franchise co-owners of Brookfield's EmbroidMe, a full-service embroidery, promotional products, personalized gift and printed apparel company that offerse an extensive line of athletic attire for a variety of sports. "When my wife and I became empty-nesters and I decided to stop traveling, we looked to invest in a franchise that was operational from day one and would be a good fit for our particular skills and interests," said Martin, who previously worked as an engineer for several years at Johnson Controls facilities in England, the Middle East and San Francisco and at their headquarters in Glendale. "My wife had a background working with material, embroidering, sewing and knitting, and I have experience in marketing, trade shows and events, so EmbroidMe was a good fit for us." The Allens' store specializes in embroidery, garment printing and specialty advertising for small businesses, large corporations and individuals on anything from coffee mugs and pens to key chains and stadium cushions. Its customers include numerous local elementary schools, both the Wauwatosa and Brookfield fire departments, and the Southeast Wisconsin Pizza Hut chain. EmbroidMe weathered the economic downturn of the past two years and looks forward to a prosperous 2011. "We're fortunate in that our business fits many businesses' needs," said Martin, who employees a staff of three. "But everything revolves around customer service, and we go beyond what needs to be done in order to satisfy clients' needs and requirements."

  • A Success Story From Dublin Ohio

    I began my entrepreneurial dream with just that...a dream. I had no prior business experience before taking this plunge. I worked in a prison for 8.5 years. When they said anyone could make this business work, they were not lying. The cards were stacked against me. No experience, not much working capital and a bunch of nay sayers. I knew 1 thing though , regardless of success or failure, I had nobody to blame or pat on the back except for me. UFG gave me opportunity to own my own business. It was up to me to make it work. When we opened in 2005, it was just me and a college buddy doing it all. We struggled as all new businesses do. But we persevered. There was no way I was going to fail and have all those people tell me, "I told you so!" I learned as much as I could about this business from other owners, vendors, workshops and trade shows. I learned about my competition. They taught me what to do and what not to do. I positioned myself within the community to be very opportunistic when it came to jumping on grenades others threw and made things work out for who would become my customers. Since my 1st year, I added another friend onto the team as a sales person. He is going to hit $200K this year. I finally have the right person in place for my CAS who can tolerate being around me for more than an hour. We are moving into a new facility - 50% more space, half the rent - which in itself will propel our company towards my goal of $1 mil in annual sales. The 1 thing that has stayed consistent with me for the past 5 years is that I have never and will never blame anyone but me my the companies shortcomings. Not corporate, not other store owners, the people I surround myself with and especially the economy. It's all about me. I will get to the top of the mountain or DIE trying.
