You are starting your own business and you need marketing material printed. Well, Pronto Print, Inc in Ardmore, OK is your one stop shop for all of your business and marketing needs.
Robert and Brandy Rogers have owned Pronto Print, Inc since October 2009 after Robert had been working there for approximately five years. Robert has been in the screen print industry since 1994 and Brandy has been in retail and marketing just as long. Brandy received her degree from the University of Oklahoma in Business Management and Communication in 2004 which allowed their clientele spectrum to be widened much more, because now, according to Brandy, the knowledge has allowed the marketing to take over and allowed contracts to be signed.
Being familiar with the business already, this intrigued them to purchase the business when the owner was ready to sell, and Robert already knew the clientele list; they just wanted to increase their market.
Since the purchase of their business in October 2009, they have grown their business 50%, according to Brandy.
“The economy impacted our business by making us be cautious about different decisions. However, the economy did lead us to be able to purchase a building that was five times the size we were previously in for an extremely reasonable price,” said Brandy.
When asked what drives them to succeed Brandy stated that not only do they have a family to support, but their staff has family to support as well. “Our staff and their families are reliant upon us,” said Brandy.
They too have a drive for success, but they also care about the people that work for them. They want to take care of them and they work hard to ensure they are taken care of. They also enjoy the ability to spend time with their family when they want, but are willing to work hard to have that ability.
One day they want to venture over to other business projects and allow this one to run its self.
According to Brandy they learned of Citizen Potawatomi Community Development Corporation (CPCDC) through the Chickasaw Small Business Development Group after exhausting all their knowledge.
“CPCDC has been a tremendous help with our business at the beginning of the purchase as well as throughout ownership. Bob, Felecia, Cindy, and Shane have all been wonderful. Bob is at the top of my go to list when we start looking at other ventures,” stated Brandy.
“When you take into consideration the amount of knowledge and experience this group has, it is some of the greatest that can be mentored into people who are willing to learn,” Brandy said
