DSC_312428Custom29

Keith Leaphart was raised in West Oak Lane. His mom stressed to her kids to get an education, and he didn’t disappoint excelling in all the classes he took. After graduating from Hampton University in Virginia, he enrolled in medical school and simultaneously obtained a master’s in business administration from St. Joseph’s University. He’s taken all this education and life experiences and applied them to many aspects of business as well as the many boards he’s served on and the two organizations he’s started, the “Man Up” initiative, which hopes to provide young men with the vision and skills necessary to become responsible fathers and role models for Philadelphia’s youth; and Rainmakers Inc., a nonprofit committed to enhancing alliances among African-American professionals. Still a practicing physician, he’s also gone into business, but don’t call it just a copy shop, it’s much more than that at Replica 33 South 18th Street – Philadelphia PA 19103 Phone: 215 567 7107:

Larry Giuffra, Jamie Hoffman, Stephen Rennekamp and Kristyn Aldrich. Larry gave me a tour of some of the machines they recently got. He tells me that no job is too big or too small to copy, they’re able to create posters, exhibit boards for trial (I don’t miss those days), and they can do tasks as simple as b&w or color copies. He did mention something about wrapping a car in an advertisement, so in case you want to do that give him a call.
