Recognized for Its Strong Growth over the Last Three Years, FASTSIGNS Is the Only Sign, Graphics, and Print Franchisor Named to This Year’s List
Carrollton, Tex. – FASTSIGNS International, Inc., franchisor of FASTSIGNS®, the leading sign, graphics and visual communications franchise, has been named to Entrepreneur magazine’s first Top Growth Franchises list — the only sign, graphics, and visual communications franchise recognized — which ranked the top 150 franchises with the most consistent growth in the U.S. and Canada over the last three years.
FASTSIGNS has grown aggressively throughout the U.S. and Canada, signing dozens of franchise agreements in major markets including New York City, Chicago, Phoenix, Seattle, and the Toronto area.
“We are thrilled to be the only franchise in the sign, graphics, and print industry named a Top Growth Franchise. This recognition is a testament to the strength of the FASTSIGNS business opportunity and our position as the leader in our segment,” said Mark Jameson, EVP of Franchise Support and Development, FASTSIGNS International, Inc. “Franchisees see immediate value in joining FASTSIGNS, whether they open a new center or decide to convert or co-brand their existing business.”
FASTSIGNS has continued to grow nationwide as an essential business amid the COVID-19 pandemic, opening 17 new locations and signing 13 franchise agreements since March 1.
“As a first-time franchisee, it was important for me to invest in a brand that provided guidance to help me succeed, while allowing me to be in business for myself — and FASTSIGNS provided just that,” said Steve Brown, a FASTSIGNS franchisee in Newport Beach, California, who opened his center in April 2020. “I was just weeks away from opening my first location when the pandemic hit, and FASTSIGNS proved to be an invaluable partner during that time. I moved forward with opening my center amid the pandemic, having faith in one of the largest sign franchises. The support shown during these unprecedented times helped me get my FASTSIGNS center up and running."
FASTSIGNS offers a special incentive for first responders, including paramedics, emergency medical technicians, police officers, sheriffs, and firefighters, which includes a 50-percent reduction on the franchise fee — a savings of $24,875.
