Leading visual communications, sign and graphics franchise business FASTSIGNS® just announced aggressive franchise growth plans for the Northeast US, especially in urban market centers, as the demand for its type of products continues to accelerate.
In the upcoming months, this sign and graphics franchiser will be opening new centers in Long Island and White Plains, New York. Over the past year, the brand opened its first center in the downtown area of Hartford, Connecticut, in addition to locations in South Burlington, Vermont, Patchogue, New York and East Brunswick, New Jersey.
Currently, this brand is active seeking qualified entrepreneurs for its franchise opportunities in several Northeast urban markets, such as New York City and Buffalo, New York; Norwalk and Danbury, Connecticut; Providence and Cranston, Rhode Island; Holyoke and Boston, Massachusetts; Nashua in New Hampshire; and Portland, Maine.
Executive VP of Franchise Support and Development Mark Jameson says that the franchiser's business model is dedicated to providing custom graphics and marketing solutions for local businesses, so franchise locations in urban centers are firmly positioned to serve several clients right in their own backyards.
Waltham, Massachusetts franchisee Shishir Mehta, who has been with the brand for 17 years, added that when he was deciding to become an entrepreneur, franchising in general made sense because you're set up for success with a proven model. Mehta decided on FASTSIGNS because the company had a stellar track record and was in the business-to-business space, something he was used to from his time spent in IT sales.
This brand is still growing worldwide and is currently focusing on finding the right people for its franchise opportunities in Southern California and the Northeast US, in addition to searching for master franchisees for New Zealand, Quebec, North Africa, Brazil, Latin America, Europe, India and Southeast Asia. Existing businesses who want to expand can also take advantage of the franchiser's conversion and co-brand programs.
