Gulfport, MS, February 14, 2013 --( EmbroidMe, the world’s largest embroidery franchise, announces a new store at 11010 Hwy 49, Suite 9, under the ownership of local residents Ted Kreger and Chelsi Canhoto.

Before becoming EmbroidMe franchisees, Kreger worked as a fireman for 26 years for the New Orleans Fire Department.

“I chose to explore the EmbroidMe opportunity now that I am preparing for retirement from the fire department,” said Kreger. “I was looking for a business I could start with my daughter, Chelsi, and EmbroidMe really was the best fit for us. We look forward to being a part of this thriving community!”

The new EmbroidMe is a member of the Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber and the Orange Grove Lyman Chamber of Commerce. All chamber members will receive 10% off their orders. Store hours are Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
