Where Did Our Franchise Business Get Its Start?
Who we were, are, will be (history, mission)
Fully Promoted was first established in 2000, under the name EmbroidMe. Founded by Roy and Ray Titus, our humble family-owned business beginnings have grown into the world’s largest branded products and marketing services franchise. We now have more than 300 stores in 15 countries worldwide.
Although our name has changed, what hasn’t is our ability to provide other businesses with the solutions they need to take their business to the next level. We’re a one-stop shop with a strong customer base in virtually any economic condition. We’re proud to be a part of United Franchise Group (UFG) and part of the Titus family legacy.
Fully Promoted is consistently acknowledged as a top franchise for investors. We’re honored to have been named in Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500, Entrepreneur magazine’s 2021 Best of the Best Ranking – #1 in Category, and Advertising Specialty Institute’s Top 40 (#20) Distributors in the Commercial Industry, as well as recognized by the International Franchise Association, Global Franchise Group, Military Times, and more.
Our success has been driven by our distinction as a family-owned business and dedication to our franchisees. We take the time and effort to provide as many resources as possible to ensure our franchisees have all the tools they need to succeed. Fully Promoted’s mission statement echoes the sentiments of UFG: We have one customer: our franchisee. When they are successful, we are successful.
When we encourage our franchisees to be successful, we’re also driven to support the communities they serve. Fully Promoted is proud to offer community involvement and support to the areas in which our stores are located. We make an impact through Fully Promoted Cares and by supporting Veterans, students, and a large range of non-profit organizations, including The Titus Center for Franchising at Palm Beach Atlantic University, VetFran, local charities, and UFG Cares.
