No. 1-Ranked Sign, Graphics and Visual Communications Franchisor Targets Independent Print & Sign Shop Owners at Leading Industry Conference for Co-Brand and Conversion Franchise Opportunities
Carrollton, Tex. – FASTSIGNS International, Inc., the leading sign, graphics and visual communications franchisor of more than 675 locations worldwide, announced today that it is seeking franchisees at the upcoming ISA International Sign Expo held in Orlando, Florida, from March 22-24. The annual show is one of the largest gatherings of sign and graphics professionals, and FASTSIGNS is targeting co-brand and conversion prospects, where independent print and sign shop owners can expand their existing business or convert their business to FASTSIGNS.
“With prominent industry professionals and impressive turnouts each year, the ISA Sign Expo is a valuable resource in bridging the gap between qualified candidates and the FASTSIGNS franchise network,” said Mark Jameson, EVP of Franchise Support and Development, FASTSIGNS International, Inc. “FASTSIGNS has experienced tremendous growth and success over the last several years thanks to our strong franchisee satisfaction ratings, comprehensive suite of services, and ongoing franchisee support like FASTSIGNS University to help conversion and co-brand shops see greater success sooner. As the largest sign and visual communications franchisor in North America, FASTSIGNS provides franchisees with support for all aspects of their business, including product management, operational support, FASTSIGNS University, better buying power, and national TV ads.”
In 2016, Jeffrey Chudoff converted his 31-year-old sign business in Maple Shade, New Jersey, to FASTSIGNS. After he and his staff took the FASTSIGNS University courses, the business saw an incredible jump in sales.
“After the second year of being a FASTSIGNS franchisee, my growth sales were 25 percent over last year,” Chudoff explained. “Coming into FASTSIGNS as a conversion store is kind of like going on Shark Tank and getting picked up by one of the experts. Because for all of the things you didn’t know, for all the resources you didn’t have, all of this is available through FASTSIGNS University. So if you’re going to make your store successful, all of the tools are there. We are so happy to be on the team and so happy about our 25-percent growth over 2016, and we’re looking to make 2018 an even bigger year.”
