A boundless passion for helping other businesses flourish has driven this Bristol Minuteman Press Printing franchisee to local stardom.

Minuteman Press Printing franchise owner, Peter Wise has become a pillar in Bristols charitable and sustainable business culture. Alongside his dedicated team, Peter has built for the last 12 years a successful business on a solid foundation made up of three core values: get involved, give back to the community and make Bristol a better place to live and to do business. Peter and his team have reaped the fruit of their labour, winning the Fairtrade Office of the Year for two consecutive years 2016 and 2017, the Travelwest Business Awards, Best Newcomer in 2015, Big Commuting Challenge Winners in 2016 and 2017 and many, many more. The award-winning Minuteman Press Printing franchisee said: A big part of our role as team members at Minuteman Press Bristol is community involvement; not for the sake of it, but because we enjoy it, find it rewarding and like being a meaningful part of Bristol. We make a real difference to the quality of life in Bristol. It is no wonder, then, that Minuteman Press has made a positive impact in many ways in Bristol. Peter says, We work with a vast array of organisations; charities such as Bristol City of Sanctuary, Oxfam and One25; non-profits such as Forest of Avon, Bristol Shakespeare Festival and Bristol Cathedral; and development organisations such as Bedminster Business Improvement District, Bristol Cycling Campaign and Community Planning Groups.

Over the past 12 years, Peter has not only left his blueprint in Bristols charitable and sustainable business culture, he has wielded a successful franchise business. Peter is quick to share the benefits of running ones own franchise business: "Running your own business is a breath of fresh air. Working for large organisations can be bureaucratic where people are left manifesting in diluted and slow decision-making processes. Resources are wasted and a corporate holistic vision is myopic". Peter adds: "In a small business you are involved and are an expert in every aspect of the organisation. Decision making is yours, not always good when the wrong call is made, but it is always a learning experience. Listening to clients and providing rapid response makes a real difference. Fast thinking and a willingness to learn are critical attributes for success. Creating a corporate culture which is constructive, where colleagues support each other, collaborate and are always focused on achieving the best solution for the client's brief, is also important".
