Is it Over?

Karen has just finished tabulating the results of Quick Printing’s Annual Franchise Review, which will appear in our April Issue. The results are not pretty, but that was to be expected considering the economic disaster that was 2009. The question is, are things looking up for 2010? Since we’re only a couple months into the year it is hard to say how 2010 will turn out, but there are some glimmers of a recovery. The stock market has rebounded, the economy is stabilizing, and people are starting to spend money again. Will that last? We can only hope. I don’t think I’m giving away any company secrets when I say that QP’s ad sales are tracking better than in 2009. That said, a couple of cornerstone industry vendors have pulled back their spending. How are things in your neighborhood? Are you seeing any signs of recovery? Let us know
