MISSION VIEJO, Calif., Aug. 9, 2022 – The annual Sir Speedy and PIP Convention and Vendor Show drew strong attendance for the unveiling of new logos for both brands, in addition to the presentation of awards to top-performing franchisees. Sir Speedy and PIP are both providers of signs, printing and marketing services.

The Sir Speedy Franchisee of the Year Award was presented to Kevin and Lora Elfstrum of Fargo, North Dakota, at the annual event, which took place July 20-23 in Tampa, Florida.

The Tiedt family of Iowa City, Iowa, received the PIP Franchisee of the Year Award. The business was started by Dan and Pam Tiedt in 1980 and is now operated by their son, Dan Tiedt and Angie Tiedt.

The Franchisee of the Year Award is given to a franchisee who has been highly successful and supportive of the network. Awards were also given to franchisees and salespeople based on their sales performance and innovative work.

“Not only are these award recipients leaders in our franchise network, but they’re also innovators in the printing, signs and marketing services industry and in their communities where they consistently exercise creativity and dedication to help their customers achieve their marketing goals and grow their businesses,” said Richard Lowe, president and COO of Franchise Services Inc., parent company of PIP and Sir Speedy.

In addition to the awards presentation and Vendor Show, which drew more than 50 industry vendors, the highlight of the Convention was the unveiling of new logos for each of the brands.

“Both PIP and Sir Speedy were pioneers of the quick printing industry and have remained at the forefront of what’s evolved into the business communications industry,” said David Robidoux, chief marketing officer of Franchise Services. “We felt it was time to update our look to better reflect what our company is today—a provider of a full spectrum of marketing solutions. The new logo is symbolic of our commitment to innovation and delivering superior, personalized service to a broad range of clients.”
