FASTSIGNS International, Inc., the leading company in the provision of signs, graphics and visual communications, inaugurated its third Center in Puerto Rico. FASTSIGNS arrived on the island in 2012, opening its first Center in Guaynabo, followed by the Caguas Center in 2014, and now its newest one in Carolina. The three locations are the result of the vision, dedication, commitment, and hard work of three local entrepreneurs who have positioned FASTSIGNS amongst the top signage firms in Puerto Rico. FASTSIGNS Puerto Rico also has a production workshop, located in the Lucchetti Industrial Park, and its more than 15 employees are proud to contribute to the local economy with their sales talent and production capacity.
Since 1985, FASTSIGNS has provided signage, graphics and comprehensive visual communications solutions across all industries. Its products include vehicle and floor graphics, point of purchase and digital signs, labels and decals, architectural and interior décor signs, printing, promotional products and wearables, mobile marketing and other related marketing services. The company boasts over 600 FASTSIGNS centers around the world and is one of the top franchises in North America. In 2016 it received several awards from various organizations, including Franchise Gator - Top 100 Franchises Rated #1, Entrepreneur's Franchise 500 - #1 Sign Franchise three years in a row and Franchise Business Review - 2016 Best In Category Award.
"FASTSIGNS International, Inc. has focused on Puerto Rico as a key expansion market in the Caribbean because of its importance in the region," said Mark Jameson, Executive VP of Support and Development. "Its strategic value, plus the vision that Juan, José, and Teresa bring to the mix, have made the expansion in this market viable."
"The team at FASTSIGNS Puerto Rico has garnered several recognitions for the franchise, among them the 2016 Pinnacle Award and the 2015 CEO Circle, which recognize their achievements in sales. Because of their business acumen, their knowledge of the local market, their contacts, and their experience in the industry, together with the solid branding, technology and processes offered by FASTSIGNS, the company continues to grow," said Jameson.
The local FASTSIGNS operation offers services to hundreds of clients in more than 29 industries. "We appreciate the support we have received from our clients since the very beginning," said José Corujo, a partner in the firm who also serves on the Franchisee Advisory Council for FASTSIGNS International, Inc. "Because of it, we have been able to position FASTSIGNS of Puerto Rico amongst the network's top 50 FASTSIGNS centers in sales, worldwide."
Juan A. Rivera, also a co-owner of the local franchise, emphasized that, "One of our great achievements over the past few years has been the ability to produce even more solutions in Puerto Rico. With our third center expansion, we are better positioned to serve the Carolina region and surrounding areas, recognizing that signage and graphics use amongst small and medium sized businesses continues to grow here on a daily basis." The center in Carolina offers a customer service area, where experts in visual communications can tend to and advise clients on the diverse solutions FASTSIGNS can offer.
Likewise, the firm's marketing strategy partner, Teresa Caballero, ensured that they continue to expand their products and services portfolio.
