Minuteman Press International Founder & CEO Bob Titus Reflects on 50 Years in Business

Minuteman Press International Inc

In 2023, Minuteman Press International is proud to celebrate 50 years in business! The first Minuteman Press center opened in Plainview, NY in 1973. Roy Titus, founder of Minuteman Press along with his son Bob Titus, decided to open the shop after running a successful operation for Parent’s Magazine. While working with other printers for Parent’s Magazine, Roy realized that the printing industry was a huge market that had untapped potential. In 1973, that first Plainview shop served as a quick printing operation that filled the need for 1-color, short-run orders that needed to be done fast. From there, Roy tapped into the potential of the industry, creating the first one-stop Minuteman Press design, marketing, and printing center. Products and capabilities expanded, and over the past 50 years, Minuteman Press has continued to be at the forefront of the printing industry as leaders and innovators. It all started with that first Plainview shop in 1973, where Roy, along with his son Bob and childhood friends Jim Galasso and Dave Scadin, laid the foundation for the worldwide franchisor that Minuteman Press International is today. Bob Titus, who remains our CEO today, shares his thoughts, experiences, and memories of what it was like laying the groundwork in 1973. What was it like working in the Plainview shop in 1973? Bob Titus: “Jimmy Galasso and I ran the shop together, and a couple of months later we brought in Dave Scadin. I have known both of them since I was 6-years-old. I came home from college, and Jimmy was working at a sporting goods store. He came to our house and when my dad offered him the job, he said yes. We needed someone else down the road, and that’s when Dave joined us after working for the Town of Oyster Bay. Originally, Dave was making deliveries for us, but one day our press broke. Dave came into the shop and told us to get out of the way. He fixed the press and from that point forward he was our press operator. Over the years, we’ve had 36 people from Oyster Bay High School and St. Dominic’s High School work with us. It all stemmed from us as childhood friends working together and then expanding from there. It’s been an incredible ride.” What was it like working with your dad Roy Titus? How did you get started running the shop? Bob Titus: “My dad and I didn’t work in the shop together but he would come in and give us great ideas. He was really smart, and did things like start our marketing program and add pickup and delivery as a service to our customers. For me, this all started with my dad hiring an old-time printer named Tom, who taught me and Jimmy Galasso how to run the press and do bindery work. One day, a real estate customer came into the Plainview shop and my dad happened to be there. They wanted flyers printed and delivered down the street to their office once the job was done. Tom said we don’t do delivery, and my dad stepped in and said that yes, we’ll deliver the job once it’s finished. Tom said we wouldn’t want to get into delivery, and Roy disagreed. My dad saw this as a great service we could provide that would make it easy for customers to do business with us. He also decided that we don’t have to wait for customers to come in, and that we can go to the customers ourselves. At the time, the huge commercial printers were looking for home run clients, and they were not going door to door. We started going door to door, starting in the retail area, and we were picking up business.” “The two biggest things we did to really get the shop going strong were: Marketing to the customers, going to them and not waiting for them to come to us; Adding pickup and delivery options at a time where others just weren’t doing that. My dad always told us to never say no to the customer. No matter what the customer wants, get it for them.” -Bob Titus How did Minuteman Press originally grow from there into a franchise? Bob Titus: “First, our Plainview shop went from an AB Dick 1-color press to an older Multi-Graphic Press that really improved the quality of the work we were doing. When we opened the second Farmingdale store, we purchased a new Multi-Graphic Press along with our first 3M camera that lead to us implementing the franchise model for other shops. We found that the 3M company invented a plastic plate camera where the plastic plates would cost about the same as a paper platemaker. The plastic plates allowed for metal plate quality that wouldn’t stretch and allowed for 2-color printing. The salesman told us the camera could help us produce 2, 3, and 4-color printing with plastic plates that don’t stretch like paper plates, and he was right. The cameras did everything the salesman said they could do. We first hired Mike Jutt as our press operator for the Farmingdale shop, where we first used the press with the 3M camera. He did a great job and the Farmingdale center became the prototype for the Minuteman Press franchise. When we started franchising, we asked Mike to create the training program to teach the owners our system. He created and implemented the training program, and he’s done an absolutely fabulous job for 50 years. Mike ultimately became our Executive VP & Director of Training, and is still going strong today.” “I want to share one quick story from our Farmingdale shop. This speaks to the importance of being involved in the community and joining local clubs and organizations. At that time, Farmingdale merchants held their Hardscrabble Day. Families would come to the event and one year, they needed to hire a clown at the last minute. My dad volunteered to pay for the clown, who would blow up balloons for the kids and put smiles on their faces. The families were happy, the merchants saw us as saviors for stepping in to help, and many of them started using us for their printing. That $50 investment and ‘saving the day’ lead to a lot of business.” -Bob Titus “Because the press and camera worked so well in Farmingdale, my dad ordered another one for our Plainview shop, and then a third one. When the head honchos at 3M saw that we had purchased 3 cameras in 6 months, they paid us a visit to see what we were doing. On their end, they were having trouble selling the cameras because other printers were reluctant to change. They said we had a terrific idea for using these cameras and suggested we franchise. 3M really believed in our concept and our program, and so they offered financing to new owners. They allowed the owners to form a shell corporation so that they wouldn’t have personal liability. We then went to a franchise show at the NY Coliseum, just looking to put people into business in the Tri-State Area, and we would support those owners. At that show, we had one prospect who wanted to open in Boston, and another one who wanted to open in Los Angeles. At first, we said no to going out of state, but they were persistent. At that point, my dad reached out to six quality people who had worked for him in the past, who had sons that were around my age. My dad felt this would be a great business for a father and son, and he was able to hire them. He had them go to six different cities - Boston, Cleveland, Chicago, Atlanta, Denver, and Los Angeles – and hire a press operator. They ran these Minuteman Press shops with the press and 3M cameras, and followed our business model. Then, they franchised and supported the new stores that opened around them while also working in their own shops. As these cities expanded with more franchises, we could no longer run our own stores while supporting the new owners. That is when we made the decision to sell those original shops we owned and support the owners full-time. We had the press operator, the marketing person, and the regional vice president for those locations, and that’s how our local support teams were originally formed. Ultimately, we sold hundreds of 3M cameras, and they also were able to sell the ancillary materials needed for those cameras. This really helped us get going as a franchise, and the company-owned stores became profitable very quickly because of the new marketing program we introduced. As we generated more and more business and sold those satellite stores, that’s how we created the support teams that laid the groundwork for our regional teams today.” What are some the key ways that Minuteman Press has evolved over the years? Bob Titus: “One of the biggest changes we’ve ever made was when my dad introduced the royalty cap to our owners around 1977-78. The owners thought we were crazy, but what happened is that this really incentivized our owners to sell more and more. At the time, we saw owners who were making 15K/month at the time start selling 20, 30, 40K, 50K. My dad sent them a letter and told them to act as if you’re paying the full royalties, and use that money to reinvest and build the business. Many of our owners bought into this idea. They appreciated the royalty cap but also understood how important it was to hire that extra marketing person, or add that piece of equipment, etc.” Other key changes Bob noted are: We originally created manual price lists that went from 50 to 1,000 copies, for 1-color printing on 8.5 x 11, 8.5 x 14, or 11 x 17. Eventually, we decided to develop pricing software. Our original pricing software was on a Tandy 1000 from Radio Shack. It was developed by an owner in Dallas, Texas, who had a computer background and previously worked for EDS (Electronic Data Systems). We then hired IT people to create our first software program. This laid the groundwork and planted the seeds to what is the incredibly dynamic FLEX pricing and management software today. When copiers were invented in the 1970s, people wrongly predicted that all of the printers would go out of business. Instead, when Xerox machines were introduced, printers bought the machines and grew their sales. To this day, our partnerships with Xerox and Konica-Minolta have been a tremendous asset to our owners. Everything we’ve done / added from a products and services standpoint has worked. We would add new products based on what our owners would be farming out. That’s how we added apparel and promotional products, as it just made sense to add those based on what they were selling. Other key changes and points of growth include direct mail / EDDM, digital printing, wide format printing. “We started this business by filling a void for our clients. To this day, we continue to fill that void in different areas that make sense and meet their needs.” -Bob Titus Is there anything else you’d like to share? Bob Titus: “My dad was president of Minuteman Press for the first 20 years, and we were in pure growth mode in terms of opening new franchise locations. We expanded from the USA into Canada, and I even ran the Toronto office for two years. For the next 25 years of our history, I was president of the company. We expanded even further internationally to the UK, Australia, and South Africa. I felt that my job was to improve on existing services and add services that made the most sense for our owners. We would conduct studies and see what’s next, then implement new items to benefit our owners. Everything we did and still do, we always try to think of how we can best help them. For over 3 years now, my son Nick has been president of the company. He took over for me just 3 months before the pandemic. Looking back on it now, this is one of the best decisions we made to elevate him to president when we did. There is no way I could have carried us through the way he did. Everything he did and everything our team did was just tremendous. There were daily communications, the Bounce Back program, and so much hard work and dedication. His vision helped all of us adapt. Even though I already knew this, it just assured me that everybody’s in great hands.” Bob concludes: “Looking back, I think of the longtime owners that helped us build the company. And then I think of every owner out there who has since helped us build, whether they realize it or not. We are all like family, and we’re in this together. Let me also say that what makes me feel so gratified is when the business is turned over from parents to their kids. It’s always such a great feeling to see a business that people worked really hard to build carry through to the next generation. I know that from experience, as both a son and as a dad. Over 50 years… it’s certainly been an incredible ride.” For more information on Minuteman Press products and services and to find your local Minuteman Press franchise, visit To learn more about #1 rated Minuteman Press franchise opportunities, visit Contact Details Minuteman Press International Chris Biscuiti +1 631-249-1370 Company Website

La temática y nombre de Fruit Cocktail hacen referencia a la bebida que tanto nos gusta: el cóctel tropical de frutas. El juego cuenta con 3 filas, 5 rodillos y 9 líneas de pago y está representado por varios tipos de frutas (manzana, limón, melocotón, pera, sandía, cerezas), siendo la fresa la fruta principal de la pantalla.

Como lo habíamos mencionado anteriormente, esta tragamonedas hace referencia a un cóctel y sus principales símbolos serán únicamente frutas. Entre estas incluyen sandías, manzanas, peras, limones, cerezas y melocotones y cada símbolo representa un valor de más o de menos valor. A continuación observaremos una tabla detallando cada símbolo de las frutas, con sus combinaciones necesarias, y el valor de su premio: Aparte de estos símbolos antes mencionados, contamos con otros tres símbolos que son especiales: El Comodín: su objetivo es sustituir a otros símbolos y conseguir una mejor combinación. Su premio será hasta un máximo de 2.000 monedas. Bonificación: la fresa es el símbolo que activa la ronda de bonificaciones, cuando aparecen tres o más combinaciones, este símbolo hace que tengas más ganancias con altos pagos. Scatter: conocido como el símbolo de dispersión, este símbolo es conocido por ofrecer créditos por las combinaciones. Rondas de bonificación Las rondas de bonificación son activadas en el Fruit cocktail si en tu pantalla aparecen tres o más símbolos de fresa en cualquier lugar de los rodillos. Estos rodillos se cambiarán por una Rueda de la Fortuna con varios símbolos de las frutas durante todo el juego de la ronda de bonificación. La ronda empezará girando su rueda, seguido de los rodillos dentro de ella. La cantidad de tiradas que consigas dependerá del número de símbolos de fresa que consigas durante el juego principal. Si tienes una combinación de tres fresas, obtienes 1 tirada; si consigues 4, obtienes 2 tiradas; y si consigues una combinación de 5, obtienes 3 tiradas. Los números de cada símbolo utilizado en el juego de bonificación van de 2 a 100, cuando el jugador no tiene más oportunidades de ganar, debes seleccionar la casilla de salir. Fruit Cocktail se encarga de alertarte si ya no cuentas con tiradas. En el borde de la pantalla habrá una sección destacada, que es la casilla Salir. A su vez esto nos indica que su juego de bonificación ha terminado y que sus ganancias se añaden en su totalidad. A continuación se indican los valores de los símbolos de la ronda de bonificación: Cerveza: 2x Melocotón: 5x Limon: 10x Manzana: 20x Pera: 50x Sandia: 70x Fruit Cocktail logo: 100x Ventajas y desventajas de Fruit Cocktail Como en todos los juegos de azar, siempre encontraremos puntos fuertes y débiles, como las siguientes: Ventajas ✅Este juego es muy fácil de entender, no necesitas ser un experto para poder jugarlo; ✅Cuentas con dos opciones de juego si quieres jugar gratis o empezar tu juego con dinero real; ✅ Su diseño y temática son muy divertidos; ✅Su plataforma está disponible en dispositivos móviles como tablets, laptops, celulares y computadoras de escritorio; ✅El juego es muy seguro.

Paso 3: Después de haberte registrado, ahora elige Fruit Cocktail y haz clic en el botón 'Start' para comenzar. Otros detalles importantes para tener en cuenta son: En la pantalla principal, si te aparecen tres o más fresas al azar, has logrado desbloquear un juego de bonificación con tres rodillos estándar en el centro, y con símbolos de otras frutas alrededor de las esquinas exteriores de la pantalla. Se conceden multiplicadores de apuesta de 2x a 100x siempre que una de las frutas iluminadas en el anillo exterior de la pantalla corresponde a un símbolo de los rodillos Para detener el juego de bonificación y añadir las ganancias al saldo del jugador, se debe presionar el botón "Salir" en la parte inferior de la pantalla después de cada giro. La sandía, las peras, las manzanas, los limones, los melocotones, las cerezas y el logotipo del cóctel son algunos de los símbolos que ofrecen más créditos. Apuestas mínimas y líneas de pago en la tragamonedas Como en todas las máquinas tragaperras, los jugadores podrán jugar en ellas con un apuesta mínima desde $0.01, mientras que otras máquinas que también permiten un pago de apuestas de tan sólo $0.05, convirtiendo a este juego el más accesible en apuestas mínimas más bajas. Si te encuentras con máquinas con apuestas más altas es porque los propios jugadores hacen apuestas en muchas líneas de pago de las tragaperras. En el caso de esta tragamonedas Fruit Cocktail, la apuesta mínima es muy accesible siendo desde de 1 moneda hasta 810 monedas como apuesta máxima. Todas las tragamonedas cuentan con muchas líneas de pago en las que los jugadores pueden ganar un premio en función de la combinación de algunos símbolos. Las líneas de pago se extienden horizontalmente de izquierda a derecha, aunque a veces pueden verse en una orientación más vertical. La línea 1 es siempre la línea del rodillo central, y a partir de ahí el número de líneas de pago depende completamente del diseñador de la tragaperras. Además de otorgar nuestros pagos, estos se utilizan para iniciar las rondas de bonificación de nuestro juego, como la oportunidad de obtener tiradas gratuitas Ejemplo: si tenemos una máquina que cuenta con 5 rodillos, tendremos que conseguir al menos tres cerezas seguidas, todas esas cerezas deben estar en todas la misma línea de pago. No ganaremos nada si las tres cerezas aparecen en líneas de pago separadas. En cada máquina, el número de líneas de pago varía, por lo que éste es un factor crucial a tener en cuenta.

CGrowth Capital Inc. Announces the acquisition of Savage Barbell Apparel Company

CGrowth Capital, Inc.

McapMediaWire -- CGrowth Capital Inc. (OTC: CGRA ) is a public Mergers and Acquisition Company focused on disrupting the sports and lifestyle sectors through the acquisition, consolidation and reformation of industry-leading products and services combined with disruptive technology. In its first of several deals, CGrowth Capital (CGRA) has today announced that it has acquired 100% of the California based Savage Barbell Apparel Company. The acquisition of Savage Barbell is the first of many to be completed in the first half of 2023 and is a significant step towards the implementation of CGRA’s roadmap, which involves establishing scalable product and technology offerings that will be integrated across various sports verticals. The company’s medium to long-term vision is to be integral in the entire value chain of the sports sector, right through its entire life cycle from training to media content. This includes but is not limited to pre, intra and post-game technology, equipment, apparel including wearable technology, nutrition, venue technology, pay per view streaming and sports betting. Although CGRA itself is not focused on becoming a retailer, it knows the importance of rapidly increasing its revenue and profitability, with critical mass featuring as an essential element of the business plan, especially within in the first 12 months. CGRA’s first acquisition is strategically significant given that all sports which the company will be involved in consume and require huge volumes of apparel and merchandise. This will allow Savage Barbell to expand its distribution globally and increase its offering into additional sporting lines. Furthermore, CGRA is able to leverage immediate sales and revenue into all the sports it will be involved in. Savage Barbell already sells its products in more than 10 countries. At present, it is specifically focused on the niche market of functional fitness, which includes apparel for cross fit, the world’s fastest growing high intensity sport. The majority of Savage Barbell’s sales are currently within the USA and a realistic target has been set for expansion from 10 to at least 20 countries in 2023. The company will further expand its range into sports where CGRA is expected to announce its involvement in during the remainder of this first quarter, with these sports already followed by tens of millions of participants and several hundred million spectators. Alongside Savage Barbells expansion of its manufacturing and distribution capability, the company expects to increase its sales run rate from $5 million to $20 million by the end of 2024. The acquisition of Savage Barbell was paid for with a combination of restricted common shares and cash to the total of $700,000. The current CEO will remain with the business for 6 months while the Savage Barbell team expands and recruits additional key personnel. CGRA’s soon to be announced experienced new board and management team will play an instrumental role in driving exponential growth of Savage Barbell alongside the businesses that are being added. A link to the Savage Barbell website can be found here: Sport is a more than $500 billion market which touches almost every person’s life in some way, regardless of race, gender, religion, or geography. However, many traditional sports have seen their followings stagnate, often resulting from their stale or bureaucratic approach which has caused them to lose their spectator value and engagement. CGRA has identified several lucrative opportunities to Disrupt the market in these popular traditional sports that require rejuvenation. CGRA will be announcing its dynamic management team and CEO shortly. This is running slightly behind schedule due to some new employees experiencing restrictions from their previous employers. The announcement is therefore planned for the coming weeks as soon as it is possible, and CGRA’s new website is expected to go live within two weeks. In one of several vital steps that the company is taking towards becoming a global player in the sports and lifestyle markets, CGRA intends to be audited and fully reporting during the first half of 2023. CGRA’s Interim CEO Nicolas Link said “ I’m so excited for the opportunity which lays ahead for CGRA. It’s not often that there is such an enormous opportunity to disrupt such a large addressable market that is so relevant to almost everyone. This large addressable market presents significant interconnected opportunities for all companies which I am involved in, and I believe that this will add tremendous stakeholder value at every level”.

OYO USA’s per hotel revenue surpasses pre-pandemic levels in 2022, outpaces industry with 18% growth


Global travel technology company, OYO’s USA operation announced that it has outpaced the budget hotel segment’s growth in per available room revenue (RevPar) with an 18% rise in 2022 vs pre-covid year, 2019. The budget hotel segment in the meanwhile, grew by only 6% in the US, according to STR reports. OYO has seen significant growth in its priority markets of Miami, Houston and Phoenix, where it has sizable concentration of hotels. According to STR Miami Sub Market report, the budget segment in the region saw a 21% jump in RevPar in 2022 vs 2019 while OYO hotels in the region saw a 28% uplift in RevPar in 2022 vs 2019, which translated to ~1.3x higher growth than the other budget hotels in the region. Overall, the region has witnessed a shift in demand pattern with majority of bookings coming from domestic tourists. OYO saw a 13% jump in RevPar in Houston region while the budget hotel segment here saw a meagre 0.16% growth in RevPar, according to STR Sub Market report. For OYO, the increase in demand in the region can be attributed to uptick in business travel, given the region’s proximity to the oil & gas hub. A popular leisure market, Phoenix saw a 32% jump in RevPar in 2022 vs 2019 whereas OYO’s hotels in the region saw 41% jump in RevPars, again, ~1.3x higher than industry revenue per available room. Talking about the recovery, Gautam Swaroop, CEO OYO International said, “OYO’s US hotels have seen a significant improvement in per available room revenue in 2022, surpassing industry average. Domestic tourism has spearheaded this uplift with leisure and revival of business travel in 2022, leading the way. After two years of travel constraints, the US government easing restrictions in summer 2022 has played an important role in opening up domestic travel in the country and paving way to creating newer tourist pockets across the country.” OYO offers hotels access to a large base of regular customers through its app and website, and also lists hotels on multiple Online Travel Agents (OTAs) to boost booking demand and, therefore, revenue. OYO’s best-in-class Artificial Intelligence-enabled pricing software automatically drives the best booking prices across all channels, based on room type, seasonality and other factors, therefore, enabling such doubling of revenues. The company also helps ensure great experience for customers, with ease of search and quick booking experience, highly competitive room prices, automated tools such as Artificial Intelligence powered chatbots to quickly resolve customer queries, loyalty programmes and easy refund, if needed. OYO US recently announced that it witnessed a 46% increase in per room revenue (RevPar) for its hotels since COVID (2020) with the strongest uplift at 64%, recorded during the peak season months of June, July, August vs the same period in 2020. For OYO US, coastal Oregon, Miami, Myrtle beach, Houston and San Antonio emerged as the destinations with highest RevPar in 2022. Travel recovery was largely led by domestic travel in the US.
