Keith Cohen owns his award-winning Minuteman Press design, print, and marketing center in Falkirk, Scotland, United Kingdom. This is his Minuteman Press franchise review:
Keith Cohen is originally from Leeds in England and is a huge Leeds United fan. He travels back to Leeds for every home weekend game as well as the occasional midweek tie. Although an apprentice-trained lithographic printer, over the years Keith has had many different career paths ranging from window cleaning to taxi driving to sales. Keith says, “I have always worked hard for other people and had always envisaged having my own business one day where I could reap the benefits of my hard work.”
Keith moved to the Stirlingshire area in Scotland after meeting his partner Lyn and he worked in the Minuteman Press location in Falkirk for a few years. Keith recalls, “The owner there was looking to retire and having always wanted to own my own business, I saw the potential in Minuteman Press franchise opportunities from my time working there.”
Becoming a business owner and being active in the community
In 2013, Keith took over the Minuteman Press Falkirk, Scotland franchise location which is based directly across from Grahamston train station and the main Post Office in Falkirk. In this time Keith has been awarded numerous awards for quality, appearance and sales achievements.
He is actively involved in a local networking group called Forth Association of Business (F.A.B.) increasing his profile within the local business community. “I enjoy networking and I have recently incorporated my passion for golf into my networking,” says Keith. He elaborates, “I recently became a corporate member of a local golf club. This allows me to meet new people who might need services my business provides and also helps me network with current and potential clients on the golf course.”
Ongoing local support and Minuteman Press World Expo
Keith and Lyn appreciate the ongoing local support provided by Minuteman Press International. They also attended the Minuteman Press World Expo in Las Vegas in 2015, which brought together Minuteman Press franchisees, guest speakers and vendors, and also included their Gala Awards Dinner Celebration. Keith says, “This was our first time at the World Expo and we thoroughly enjoyed the convention, the seminars, and the awards dinner, so much so that we have already registered to go to the next World Expo in Orlando in July of 2017.”
“Keith Cohen is a model business owner for the Minuteman Press franchise system-wide,” says David Watson, Minuteman Press International Area Manager for the United Kingdom North region. David adds, “He cares deeply about his customers and his business, and is very deserving of the awards and accolades he has received for his efforts.”
