You are starting your own business and need marketing material printed. Well, Pronto Print Inc. in Ardmore, Okla. is a one stop shop for all of your business and marketing needs.
Robert and Brandy Rogers have owned Pronto Print Inc. since October 2009, five years after Robert began working there. Robert has been in the screen print industry since 1994, while 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 them to widen their clientele spectrum. Now, according to Brandy, that knowledge has allowed the marketing to take over and allowed contracts to be signed.
As they were already familiar with the business, they were intrigued when the former owner was ready to sell. With Robert already knowing the clientele list, the Rogers wanted to increase their market.
Since their purchase in October 2009, they have grown their business 50 percent according to Brandy.
“The economy impacted our business by making us be cautious about different decisions,” she said. “However, the economy did give us the opportunity to purchase a building that was five times the size we were previously in for an extremely reasonable price.”
Brandy said that not only do she and Robert have a family to support, which drives Pronto Print Inc. to succeed, but their employees also have family to support as well. The Rogers have the drive for success, but they also care about the people who work for them, saying that they want help take care of their employees and work hard to do so.
“Our staff and their families are reliant upon us,” said Brandy.
The Rogers, who are devoted to their own family, enjoy the ability to spend time away from the business, but are willing to work hard to have those off hour opportunities.
One day they want to venture over to other business projects and allow Pronto Print Inc.’s operations run itself.
According to Brandy, the Rogers learned of Citizen Potawatomi Community Development Corporation through the Chickasaw Small Business Development Group after exhausting all their knowledge there.
“CPCDC has been a tremendous help with our business at the beginning of the purchase as well as throughout our ownership. Staff members like Bob Crothers, Felecia Freeman, Cindy Logsdon and Shane Jett have all been wonderful. As a senior commercial lender, 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.”
