There’s a “football” feeling in the air…and on the air!

Hi everyone, it’s been a record breaking month at Mission Repair and I’ve still got a lot of work to do today; and I’m even leaving at 4:30 to see a Pro Football Preseason Game this afternoon so I’ll make this quick!

There’s a lot of talk about Football right now- everyone is drafting their fantasy teams, the major NFL cuts are happening soon and season ticket holders are polishing their tailgating equipment – all just in time for the first “real” games the first week of September!

What does this time of year bring for Mission Repair? Well we’ve got an extensive advertising campaign running on our local football team, the Kansas City Chiefs, pregame show. We’re going to be on the radio and on the television advertising to millions of viewers weekly very soon. Here’s a shot of me “trying” to read my next radio ad:

It can be tough to belt out the entire script in one take- so they guys at 102.5 FM just work their magic until I sound great. Trust me, these weren’t recorded in one take- I was in this booth for an hour yesterday just trying to get it right. It didn’t help that I had Troy, my General Manager right next to me snickering each time I said “Ryan Arter here, owner at Mission Repair, and when the KC Chiefs score, you score!” He just got a kick out of that.

I’m just talking about the some of the “behind the scenes” activity that goes around here at Mission Repair. No one told me that owning a business would be so much work…but days like this make it really rewarding in any case.

So speaking of “When Kansas City scores, you score”, I’m promoting an offer on the radio each week that provides deep discounts when the Chiefs score. The more they score, the more my customers will save. So for those of you that are outside of the Kansas City and outside of the Kansas City Radio Network, I’ll post the same offer here on the blog for you to enjoy when it runs…which is not today! You’ll have to wait until the official NFL season start, and I hope to see you at one of the games!

For those of you that know me, you know that I’m a Chiefs fan but there’s another team closer to my heart. Care to take a guess?

Have a great day, Ryan

Happy anniversary Mission Repair! Coupon code inside!

Hello everyone and happy-post-Easter yo you!

It’s April 1st – and as there are likely a lot of April’s Fools pranks being pulled around the country, it’s also time to celebrate another Mission Repair Anniversary.

What’s it like running a business year after year? Well, I can honestly tell you that I’m still learning something new every day while growing and adding value to the business as it accelerates. I often get asked “how big is Mission Repair?”. Well, I guard a lot of that business information carefully as the sole owner, but I’ll tell you that we have now occupied 4 buildings in our business complex which puts us as the majority occupants. This means that it’s almost time to purchase a new building so we can keep up with the growth a demand, and quite frankly we need more parking space!

Today is a time for me personally to reflect on the life as an owner / operator and enjoy what can be accomplished with a ton of hard work.

What can you enjoy?

We are are receiving in a ton of local walk in business and actually when I popped into the business on Saturday there was a line wrapped out the front door of people waiting to either drop off or pickup from us. It was a sight to see.

So for today, I have a special coupon code for every walk in customer that we will apply to each order as delivered today. Stop on by for extra savings when you use Mission Repair, and while you’re at it, ask for a piece of anniversary cake, it’s amazing!

Have a great day everyone.
Ryan
