'One Stop Shop' Branding Solution Store in BOP

Local Businessmen Launch First 'One Stop Shop' Branding Solution Store in BOP

Speedy Signs Rotorua franchise owners Richard Haigh and Darren Burborough have opened the region's first EmbroidMe store, combining the two shops as the only complete branding solution provider in the Bay of Plenty.

Darren says, "With some re-arranging of our existing location at 1198 Arawa Street we have combined both businesses under the same roof. Having both businesses operating from the same shop is a first for the Business Franchise Group."

Richard and Darren intend to build on the success of the Rotorua Speedy Signs store, which they opened in 2007.

Greg Longstaff from the Business Franchise Group says, "They have already proved their success in building the Speedy Signs business as a start-up venture, and now they can tap into a similar market with their existing clients."

Richard and Darren were both born and raised in Rotorua, and after travelling the world together returned home to settle in the Bay of Plenty with their families.

As proud locals, they support many charities and sports teams including the local chapters of Diabetes NZ, The New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation, BOP Rugby, Rotorua Stock Car Club and Springfield Golf Club. Richard and Darren firmly believe in supporting the community that supports them.

From the first day of opening EmbroidMe, Richard and Darren discovered a strong demand for high visibility work wear and uniforms for local sports teams. With Rotorua being a popular destination for national conferences they believe they will also have many opportunities to support out of town organisations.

Richard and Darren have invested in setting up top quality multi-head embroidery machines and a separate workstation. With excellent supply deals with all the best corporate wear and promotional product suppliers, EmbroidMe is all set up to deliver affordable prices, fast turn-around times and a friendly, local service.
