Independent Research Data Shows Veteran Franchise Owners Are Highly Satisfied with FASTSIGNS® Performance
FASTSIGNS International, Inc., franchisor of FASTSIGNS®, the leading sign, graphics and visual communications franchise, announced today that it has been named by independent franchisee satisfaction research firm Franchise Business Review as being one of the Top 100 franchises to qualify for its 2017 Top Franchises for Veterans list.
“We truly appreciate the service and sacrifice our active duty military, reserves and veterans give and have given to our country! We are committed to supporting our veterans with opportunities within the FASTSIGNS network. We pride ourselves on ensuring that veterans have the opportunity and support to successfully build a career within the franchising model and we are thrilled to receive this recognition from Franchise Business Review,” said Catherine Monson, President and CEO, FASTSIGNS International, Inc. “The feedback we received from our own franchisees is a testament to the processes we have in place that provide beneficial support to the veterans in our network.”
FASTSIGNS offers all veterans a 50-percent discount on the franchise fee — a total savings of $23,750.
To identify the top brands, Franchise Business Review analyzed 18 months of data from approximately 25,000 veteran franchise owners representing over 250 brands regarding their overall satisfaction with their brands and their likelihood to recommend them to others.
FASTSIGNS franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.
“The reality is that two-thirds of the thousands of franchise opportunities available today are simply average or below average opportunities,” said Eric Stites, founder and CEO of Franchise Business Review. “That’s the whole reason we do what we do, which is help prospective franchisees understand which franchises are the top opportunities based on the actual performance and satisfaction of franchise owners. The 100 companies named in this year’s report received the highest ratings from the veterans that own them on our independent satisfaction survey.”
