Training & Support
We’re Here to Help
At Kwik Kopy Business Center, support is more than a concept, it's a commitment. In addition to communication tools such as newsletters and direct mail campaigns, Kwik Kopy Business Center provides its franchise owners with access to a Success Library, National Account Pricing information, and a Vendor Support program. And should a problem arise, we are never more than a phone call away. In fact, we log and document every call that comes into the Kwik Kopy Action Center. And we take steps to resolve every problem, on any subject.
The Owner's Network is another efficient and extraordinarily useful tool available to Kwik Kopy Business Center owners 24 hours a day, seven days a week. By logging onto the Owner’s Network, a franchisee can find information when he or she needs it. In addition to searching for help by subject, owners can read equipment reviews, visit professional chat rooms, bulletin boards and review important notices.
The Owner's Network is maintained by the Kwik Kopy Business Center research and development division, Demand Graphics Research. Demand Graphics performs numerous other functions valuable to Kwik Kopy Business Center owners: equipment testing, review of equipment leases, training seminars and technical assistance.
In addition to the initial training provided for every new Kwik Kopy Business Center franchise, the company offers on-going training at Education Summits conducted throughout the year. These in-depth seminars cover virtually every subject an owner needs to know about establishing and growing a business.
Initial training for new Kwik Kopy Business Center owners takes place over a three-week-plus period at our International Center for Entrepreneurial Development (ICED) headquarters in Cypress, Texas. One week focuses on operations (receiving files, production, packing and ship, etc.), one week on administration (finance, personnel, management), one week on sales and marketing (sales, sales management). Franchise owners are also encouraged to send their employees for training.
During the initial training phase, new Kwik Kopy Business Center owners stay at the Northwest Forest campus, also home to ICED Headquarters. This resort-style facility has guestrooms, an exercise room, a large dining room, swimming pool, a lighted tennis court and more. Your days will be filled with learning, your evenings with fun.
Before your Kwik Kopy Business Center opens, a trainer will spend time with you at your site. In addition to helping you get the center ready for opening, the trainer will make sure you are ready to effectively run your center. When you’ve been open for six to nine months, the trainer will make a return visit to address any special needs or issues you have at that time.
Training is an ongoing endeavor at Kwik Kopy Business Center. New technologies, products, and services are introduced and reviewed at Quarterly Education Summits. At Kwik Kopy Business Center, we know that good training is critical for good business.
Why Kwik Kopy Business Centers?
Marketing to grow your business.
The multi-layered Kwik Kopy Business Center marketing program is designed to help franchisees attract business quickly and keep it for years to come
Kwik Kopy Business Center was the first company in the industry to put a full-time sales person in the field. We’ve conducted thousands of training seminars since then and, in fact, have developed an initial training program that is second to none. Every new owner receives this training, which focuses on how to address the needs of the Kwik Kopy Business Center target market and how to promote the products we sell.
Every new Kwik Kopy Business Center benefits from a direct mail campaign to the center’s principal business area. Several times during a center’s start-up year, colorful postcards are sent to homes and businesses in the vicinity, creating awareness for the center and promoting Kwik Kopy Business Center products and services.
Our team of professional phone marketing personnel will call the businesses in your area to help verify the accuracy of your mailing list and to identify decision makers within companies. They will also schedule personal visits for you, turning “cold calls” into “warm leads.”
To effectively promote your Kwik Kopy Business Center, we’ve identified specific industries that can benefit from direct mail campaigns. We’ll give you all the tools you need to implement these campaigns for businesses in your area. By helping your targets promote their businesses, you can grow your own. Your competitor offers printing quotes; you offer complete solutions. Who do you think is more valuable to customers?
Any single segment of the Kwik Kopy Business Center marketing program would help build a successful business. When layered, the program is hard to top.
