I Business, Inc.
January 01, 2012
Q’s Printing has been providing printing services to businesses in the Concho Valley and beyond since Suzi Marshall first opened in 1986. The growth of the company can be attributed to their attention to detail. Grow they did and found themselves looking for a larger building to handle their increased volume.
They had a vision for a collaboration of different business owners who all provide services geared towards business needs. This vision received the name I Business, Inc. I Business purchased a building large enough to house the growing Q’s yet plenty of room for other business related services. Currently I Business also includes a web designer, a screen printer, a sign company and a finance business.
Angelo State University Small Business Advisor Peggy Hodges assisted Suzi as she moved through her business plan and subsequent financing. Peggy “helped to create and edit the business plan that resulted in successful funding.” Suzie said. She “helped me think through the process that resulted in a very successful project.”
This project has come to an end, but Suzi says that Peggy Hodges, “continues to advise me in matters of business.”
The project resulted in the retention of six employees but additionally assisted in an expansion for the finance company, created a place for the screen printer, and provided a San Angelo location for a sign business from Midland.
