This August, and for the coming year, Sir Speedy locations around the world will be celebrating the company’s 40th anniversary. When the first Sir Speedy printing center opened in Costa Mesa, California on August 16, 1968, it was quickly followed by 24 more franchised openings by mid-1969. The dream of independently owning a business continued to be fulfilled for many entrepreneurs and by 1973 there were more than 400 locations and Sir Speedy was named the fastest-growing franchise in the country.
“It’s been 40 years of change and growth, and still our company remains a strong franchise network in an exciting industry,”Â said Don Lowe, CEO of Sir Speedy, Inc, who joined the company in 1981. “We have consistently taken a leadership role in adopting new technologies to help our customers meet their business objectives. Our experience in North, Central and South America, Asia, the Middle East and Europe contribute to our industry-leading position worldwide. We are excited about our recently opened first location in India and see a bright future for our brand,”Â he continued.
