FASTSIGNS Named "Game-Changing" Franchise Business

Recognized leading visual communications, graphics and signs franchise business FASTSIGNS just announced that it has been included in the "Top 100 Game-Changer" franchises list for 2018 by the Franchise Dictionary Magazine. This franchiser was recognized for its franchise opportunity, which is filling a market niche by offering entrepreneurs a unique product while remaining dedicated to customer service and giving back to the local communities in which it operates.

Brand EVP of Franchise Support and Development Mark Jameson says the company is thrilled by the recognition. According to Jameson, the company's team has put in a lot of work to make it the leading graphics and signs franchise in the world.

Franchise Dictionary Magazine CEO and Publisher Alesia Visconti said that franchising on its own is a game changer, but some brands go above and beyond that to the point where special recognition is deserved. According to the CEO, this growing visual communications and signs brand fits that bill, citing its discounts for first responders and veterans. FASTSIGNS is part of the VetFran Program from the International Franchise Association and offers veterans a 50 percent discount on its franchisee fee, which amounts to savings of $23,750.

This graphics franchise brand has had exceptional results in 2018, including signing more than 30 new franchise agreements to develop conversion, co-branded and new centers across the US. The company also inked agreements to develop international centers in the UK and Alberta, Canada, and a Master Franchise Agreement to bring the brand to Spain. Even with a projected 40 centers opening across the US this year, this brand is still looking for franchisees in the US and internationally, particularly in Brazil, Quebec, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, Europe, Latin America, India and North Africa.

Ranked the top franchise opportunity in its category and coming in at 70th overall on the Franchise 500 for 2018 from Entrepreneur Magazine, FASTSIGNS has earned many awards throughout its history and has close to 700 locations overseas and in the US. This franchiser provides visual graphics and sign solutions to help companies across all industries and of all sizes to communicate their messages, sell products and attract attention. The franchise fee is $47,500, and the initial investment ranges from $193,548 to $289,639.
