We have seen several companies shut shop due to the pandemic. But several others have expanded and grown exponentially too. The difference is not just the kind of industry they operate in. But the attitude towards adapting to change and acting fast. Cheryl Bartholomew and Wes Froebel, owners of Minuteman Press Buffalo purchased the Williamsville branch and are expanding their services for their clients.
Minuteman Press was started in 1973 and was opened to franchising in 1975. The Minuteman Press Williamsville has been helping local businesses since the 1980s. They are a full-service design, print, and marketing centers that cater to all kinds and sizes of business.
Wes says, “Our intention is to continue to provide Minuteman Press clients with the great service and products they have become accustomed to, along with enhancing and expanding upon them, to help businesses grow. For our Williamsville customers, we are excited to add large format printing, a full line of apparel, and various promotional products printed with UV inks or laser engraved. We have also retained Kale Johnson as a valued employee who has received many compliments from several of our clients.”
They are have found different ways to communicate and deliver safely. They are open for business and offer either in-store or virtual meetings to process the order with clients. Moreover, they have also increased their printing, marketing, and branding efforts.
Wes says, “We offer Online Ordering and a Do-It-Yourself Online Design Tool on our website, along with a selection of pre-designed T-Shirts, Face masks and Lawn Signs. In addition to these websites, we have secure Client Dashboards that we will be launching to make proofing client jobs and re-ordering very easy.”
