Once you feel comfortable with the site selection of your new store and all lease terms are finalized, you are then prepared for ownership and the start-up process.

"Hi Dan, I am the new owner of the Singarama on Hillsborough Street in Raleigh, NC. We had a major issue yesterday when we could not get our Mutoh printer to work. We had Time Warner Cable (TWC) out here the day before with a different issue and thought that they had fixed it, but after they left, we had a bigger problem that caused some major network issues. We contacted Nic Mayo, and he came out first thing in the morning, got on the phone with TWC and had the problem fixed within the hour! My designer had spent more than three hours the previous afternoon on the phone with TWC and got no where with them. I just wanted to thank Nic for all he has done for us and continues to do. Whenever we have exhausted all of our efforts on issues, its Nic to the rescue! Nic exemplifies the utmost in professionalism and never lets us down! Please make sure that Nic knows how much we appreciate him." Darlene Hussey, Raleigh, NC

"First of all I just wanted to express how amazing Rob was last week (no he didn’t put me up to this) We picked his brain as much as we possibly could, and he gave us some very valuable advice and training in the areas we needed it in. He really understood our position and our goals and was extremely helpful and supportive in getting us set up to head in the right direction. Luke and I are both so excited about this journey we have headed into, and the support from everyone we have come in contact with at head office has been fantastic. It doesn’t go unnoticed."
