ALBANY, GA (WALB) –More than 600,000 small businesses fail within a year of opening, according to the Small Business Advocacy. But many are successful, one of those, is Ezee copy here in Albany.
They've actually expanded by opening a new store in Tifton. Ezee Copy has been going strong for the past 3 years.
A faithful customer is the one who helped to expand the business. Ezee Copy opened about three years ago and is stronger than ever. "I kind of forgot how the time flies," said Tate Yandle.
He's the owner of Ezee Copy. All of this started when he worked at the hospital in Thomasville. "We would make little things in the print shop. I thought they were pretty cool," said Yandle.
At first he wanted to buy a Fed Ex franchise. When that didn't work, he thought about just starting from scratch. "I looked at a UPS franchise also. I thought I could do this also. So I came up with the idea, name, and everything on my own," he said.
From that, he learned how to work with computer graphics and make things. "You can come in here with an idea in your head and we'll put it on paper," said Yandle.
Thinking big from the beginning is part of the reason, he's been able to expand. "When I started this years ago, I wanted to at some point, open up other franchises," he said.
One his most faithful customers, wanted to take the Ezee Copy formula to Tifton, Georgia. "And so I had to contact a Lawyer, and he set up the franchise agreement," said Yandle.
And now with two stores in a tough economy, Yandle credits his success to how he treats all his customers. "I think our customer service is the reason why we're still here today," said Yandle.
This is just the beginning for Ezee Copy. He's planning to open stores in Valdosta and Atlanta Georgia.
