  • New Embroidme Franchise Opens in Abbotsford, British Columbia

    ABBOTSFORD, BC (December, 2010) - EmbroidMe, the world's largest embroidery franchise, announces a new store at 663 Sumas Way south of Costco under the ownership of local resident Brad Tobler.

    Before becoming an Embroidme franchisee, Tobler managed a full service pipe and valve supply store; however, he was looking to get out of the unstable oil and gas industry and into business ownership. According to Tobler, diving into his own business was a now or never decision.

    "Starting a business from scratch and building it into a successful operation takes hard work and energy," said Tobler. "I felt I had to make this decision now if I was ever going to realize my dream of business ownership."

    With nearly 400 retail locations, EmbroidMe provides full-service custom embroidery and screen-printing for apparel, as well as promotional products and gifts to both the private and commercial segments of the business community.

  • 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.

  • Competitive Greatness

    Mark JohnsonCompetitive Greatness, as Coach John Wooden describes it, is A real love for the hard battle, knowing it offers the opportunity to be at your best when your best is required. There are a lot of factors at play in our competitive world today the economy, the internet, and certainly the other embroidery, screen printing and promotional product companies that we face every day. My question is, Are you passionate enough about the competitive journey to build a successful business? The great competitors who I have known all share a joy from the struggle or journey it takes to win. But its not the victory that makes them successful, its the satisfaction that comes from putting in that supreme effort it takes to win. The extra hours, the motivation that you give to others, the hard work that goes into building something special. That is where the true victory lies, in the self satisfaction of knowing that you summoned your best effort to compete on the highest level. Are you doing the things necessary to compete in todays world? Are you marketing your business every day, looking for new employees every day, motivating others every day? We are in a great business we get to help other people with their businesses and make their companies or organizations more successful. What a great thing! But we need to compete every day. In my view, there is nothing tiresome in the old adage, When the going gets tough, the tough get going. But this doesnt have to be something that isnt enjoyed. If you are putting in your best effort there is a tremendous self satisfaction in the building of your business. Work hard and have fun with the journey. Mark Johnson President EmbroidMe

  • EmbroidMe - Dodge City, Kansas

    EmbroidMe - Dodge City, Kansas We would like to share a letter from one of our franchisees in Dodge City, Kansas...

    Without a doubt our EmbroidMe business would not be where it is today without the benefits that come with being part of a successful franchise.

    We started our business and had everything on the line-- it was a situation that we knew we had to make it work. We worked hard and are proud to say that in 6 years we have reached the Hall of Fame status. We have served on the Franchise Advisory Council for the past 4 years. We could not have been as competitive in our market without the benefits that we received from our vendors because of the size of our franchise. We have been able to show our clients and potential clients that we are local but at the same time we are global. This has been significant in the growth of our business and this has helped us as we have gone out to the businesses to present ourselves in a professional manner.

    One of the best things that has helped our growth has been the growth of our friendships with fellow franchisees and our corporate office support people. We have helped each other with our experiences and our connections to vendors and products. The most notable customer that walked through our door was a CBS Early Morning News representative, in Dodge City, Kansas no lessonly because of our franchise connections could we have taken care of 500 polos, screenprinted in two locations, ordered on Tuesday night after store hours and delivered to our door on Thursday afternoon! Then to return the favor we were able to suggest a product to a fellow franchisee that sealed the deal on a $20,000 order and secured the customers faith in EmbroidMe and in their ongoing contract. We enjoy helping others now as that is what makes the franchise system worksuccessful stores helping others to be successful.

    The Mentor program has been implemented to achieve this goal and we are proud to have served as head Mentors for the past year. At the last expo we received the award for Head Mentors of the Year and we were very honored to get this prestigious award.
