CARROLLTON, Texas - FASTSIGNS International, Inc., the leader in signs, graphics and visual communications, is sponsoring the National Print Owners Association (NPOA) Spring Conference today through April 16 in San Antonio, Texas. The company is sponsoring the Saturday morning Industry Breakfast and is participating in the show to spread the word about franchise opportunities with the brand to commercial print shop owners. FASTSIGNS International is recruiting franchisees nationwide with a focus on targeting co-branding opportunities whereby print shop owners can expand their services by adding FASTSIGNS to their existing business.
“We’re proud to be a sponsor of this year’s spring conference to help educate the attendees about our co-branding opportunities across the country to help independent printers grow their businesses by joining the FASTSIGNS franchise system,” said Mark Jameson, EVP of Franchise Support and Development, FASTSIGNS International, Inc. “By attending one of the largest non-profit trade printing industry conferences, we are sharing what FASTSIGNS has to offer print shop owners as a way to expand their business, add new revenue streams and leverage our national brand recognition with their established customer base.”
Launched in 2012, the FASTSIGNS Co-Brand program helps independent business operators with print-related services add the FASTSIGNS brand and a full suite of solutions, while retaining control of their existing business. Co-Brand franchisees can join FASTSIGNS for a down payment of $10,000, saving them significant time, resources and money when enhancing their existing operations and service offerings. Co-Brand franchisees in the print and photofinishing industries consistently report that the program has added value for customers, promoting long-term growth opportunities for their businesses.
Local entrepreneurs are invited to meet with the brand’s franchise development team to learn more about growth opportunities across the U.S. The fast-growing brand currently has 600 locations worldwide in nine countries, but is looking to expand with additional new and co-brand centers. Due to the rising worldwide need for visual communications and digital signage technology, the company expects to open another 45 to 50 locations in 2016, as well as finalize master franchise agreements in two new countries.
