Couple Buys 44-Year Ohio Shop, Converts to Minuteman Press Franchise

Brandon and Nikki Jasper fulfill their dream of owning a family business with the acquisition of Shuerholz Printing

For Bellbrook, Ohio, residents Brandon and Nikki Jasper, owning a family business is a dream come true. Brandon and Nikki purchased the 44-year business Schuerholz Printing from Charley Schuerholz and have converted it to Minuteman Press. The business will remain at 3540 Marshall Road in Kettering, Ohio, and all of the employees have been retained.

Nikki says, “When we met with Charley and saw this was a true family business, everything just felt right.”

Brandon adds, “We are thankful for Charley and the foundation his family has built with Schuerholz Printing. As Minuteman Press in Kettering, we are looking forward to continuing to build relationships and be there for our clients. Everyone on our team and in our community has already been very welcoming to us, so it has been a great transition.”

Prior to buying the business, Brandon Jasper spent 20 years with a retail convenience company. Nikki Jasper worked in environmental consulting for 16 years.

During their search, Brandon and Nikki found that there was a long-time family business for sale in nearby Kettering. Brandon says, “We saw a business-for-sale listing on BizBuySell. We contacted Minuteman Press, who was helping Charley find a buyer. After speaking with Regional Vice President Gary Nowak and researching Minuteman Press, we met with Charley, learned more about Schuerholz Printing, and it all came together.”

The Jaspers’ shop provides apparel, direct mail, printing, brochures, postcards, notepads, stationery, business cards, wide-format printing, and more. “With Minuteman Press behind us, we also have great opportunities for expanding these products and services even further,” says Brandon

As Brandon and Nikki complete the rebranding of Schuerholz Printing to Minuteman Press in Kettering, they have been working with Charley to ensure a seamless transition.

Brandon says, “I have been out with Charley to meet with clients, and we are putting out official mailers to the community as we speak. Our clients can expect the same great service that they’ve expected and received in the past. We will go above and beyond for our customers. Our goal is to be their trusted partner in marketing and advertising.”

When asked what piece of advice he would give to others looking to buy a business, Brandon says, “For us, it was identifying core values/goals and really trying to find the right opportunity. With the help of Minuteman Press, we were able to find the right fit, purchase this incredible family business, and receive ongoing support along the way.”
