Marc Frechette’s second-generation Minuteman Press printing franchise celebrates 30 years in Seekonk, Massachusetts.
Marc Frechette runs the family business that was started by his father in 1989. He said: “It is hard to believe we have been in business for this long. My father started this business 30 years ago and it has been a big part of my life since then. For me, I worked here part-time in high school and college. I am now a second-generation owner and my children are growing up knowing Minuteman Press just the way I did.”
Before finding his way back to Minuteman Press, Frechette was in the restaurant business. “I had just about every job including chef, server, and bartender,” he continued. “I was very lucky to have this family franchise opportunity. My father was starting to think about retiring and asked me if I wanted to learn the business. I worked with him full-time for five years before buying him out. Minuteman Press works for me because I enjoy working with people. I also thrive on a busy environment.”
One of the biggest benefits of franchising with a reputable franchisor such as Minuteman Press International is that there is crucial ongoing local and corporate support whenever it is needed. Frechette explained: “The support we receive is outstanding. In 2015, we had a fire. I probably would not have stayed in business had it not been for the support from Ron Rubin and the Minuteman Press support staff. It is also great to have backup when making tough decisions. Having the franchise behind me when negotiating with vendors is also a huge benefit.”
Minuteman Press International said it is proud to commemorate 30 years in business for the Minuteman Press design, marketing, and printing franchise in Seekonk, Massachusetts.
