Spotlighting Customer Value

Minuteman Press At Frisco Offers Full-Service Design, Print and Marketing Center

By partnering with the Minuteman Press Frisco team, one can expect service above self, assures owner Erik Brashears.

"My heart is to give back to our community when I can," he says. 

Of the 30-plus categories of products and services that Minuteman offers, Erik says it's still the relationships with customers that drive him. "We genuinely care about how each other's days are going," he says. 

Part of the reason that Erik says he launched the Frisco Minuteman Press office during January 2019 is that it was a good fit for the lifestyle he wanted. Plus, the business model fit his entrepreneurial mindset. From having worked for a major banking company's customer contact team and from operating his own driving business, he says he knew he thrived in custom service aspects and that he wanted a relational business. "Now, every day is different, sometimes hour to hour is different, and I get to meet owners and managers of all types of businesses," he says. 

Among the variety of businesses leveraging Erik's Minuteman Press services are operators of barbershops, roofers, restaurants, insurance companies, nail salons, real estate agencies and karate classes, for example. Erik says he also prints labels for a business owner who makes praline bars in 10 varieties. From yard signs, menus and window graphics to banners, brochures and business forms, Erik works with them to customize products to embody the essence of their businesses. 

Erik provides free delivery of customer products within the Frisco area. Amid COVID-19 shutdowns and public health concerns, he expanded his delivery area for those who were sheltering in place. He also worked with other nearby vendors to ensure the right types of equipment were available to keep production local. 

A new service he's handling for clients is filling out and submitting city sign applications needed to secure permits for banners. "We also keep disposable masks, and spray as well as liquid sanitizer, for any customer who now comes in," he adds. 

New Minuteman Press Frisco customers also receive a free cloth mask with the logo of their choice. To help businesses reopening after the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown, Erik says he recently has been producing disposable restaurant menus and floor graphics to designate physical-social distancing line demarcations. He also can produce items in a Microban plastic material intentionally designed to eliminate microbial growth. 

"We can produce anything you can put a name, image or logo on," says Erik.
