Signage & Visual Graphics Franchise to Share Co-Brand and Conversion Franchise Programs
FASTSIGNS International Inc.—the worldwide franchisor for more than 550 FASTSIGNS sign, graphics and visual communications centers—will be exhibiting at the Philadelphia National Business Media (NBM) Show.
The show, which will be held September 4-6, 2014 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, is a business-to-business trade show intended to educate attendees on the latest in sign making, digital printing, apparel decorating, engraving, personalization, promotional products and more. FASTSIGNS Executive Vice President, Franchise Support & Development, Mark Jameson, will be at Booth No. 215 to speak with independent business owners about the company’s franchise programs.
Our Co-Brand and Conversion programs allow independent business owners to maximize on new channels for growth through wide-format signage and graphics, and—at the same time—take their companies to the next level through increased brand exposure and support from FASTSIGNS,” Jameson stated. “Ultimately, these franchise programs help independents attract new customers and drive profit margins. Owners are still in the driver’s seat of their business – they just gain our proven systems, 24/7 support from the home office and a network of 550-plus franchise partners they can call on for advice.”
Independent business owners can join FASTSIGNS through its Conversion and Co-Brand programs for as little as $10,000 down in addition to reduced royalties. The company also offers the leading brand name in the sign and graphics industry as well as the latest technology, cost savings through relationships with national vendors and suppliers, comprehensive marketing and visual communications solutions and the benefits that come from networking with FASTSIGNS centers nationwide.
Co-Brand franchise partner Dick Helmey, who owns FASTSIGNS of Houston, TX – Midtown South, said, “FASTSIGNS made the whole idea of new product opportunities and new solutions come alive for our current clients. It was also a good fit because it brought a lot of new resources that we really didn’t have available to us before…training, research, new product support, operational support.”
Due to its resources and open flow of communication, FASTSIGNS consistently receives top ratings for system growth and franchisee satisfaction, including: ranking number one for three consecutive years in the sign and graphics category in the Entrepreneur Magazine annual Franchise 500®, placing as the top sign and graphics franchise by the Franchise Research Institute and earning certification as a 2014 World-Class Franchise by the organization for the eighth consecutive year, and ranking on Franchise Business Review’s 2013 FBR 50 list for outstanding franchisee support. In addition to these honors, USA Today, G.I. Jobs magazine and Franchise Business Review have recently recognized FASTSIGNS as one of the top franchises for military veterans.
