FASTSIGNS Seeks Midwest Franchise Business Expansion


Aug 12, 2016

FASTSIGNS just announced ambitious expansion plans for the Midwest, with a focus on Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas and Arkansas. As part of this growth campaign, the visual communication and signage franchise business is a gold sponsor of this year's Tri-State Sign Expo taking place in Joplin, Missouri, from August 11 to August 13.

The graphics, signs and visual communications leader is actively recruiting franchisees in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas. Its growth strategy includes a focus on its Conversion and Co-brand opportunities, where print shop owners can convert their stores into a branded center or increase their services by adding the franchise brand to their existing business. Interested candidates are invited to visit Booth #27 to learn about all the benefits of joining the FASTSIGNS family.

Brand EVP of Franchise Support and Development Mark Jameson says the company is excited about its Midwest expansion plans and its presence at this year's expo. Jameson noted that the franchiser understands how challenging establishing a brand can be, and this is the reason behind the conversion program. 

Accounting for 20 percent of all franchise agreements signed in 2015, the Co-Brand program was launched in 2012 and allows existing small print stores to add the signage brand and its full suite of solutions to their existing business. One-third of the company's Co-Brand franchisees have already opened multiple centers.

Currently, the brand has more than 615 centers across nine countries, but it's looking to expand with new Conversion and Co-Brand centers in response to the increasing demand for digital signage and visual communication services worldwide. This signage leader is planning to open at least another 45 centers in 2016 and is in the process of finalizing master franchise agreements in two countries.

Franchise Opportunity Overview:

A provider of comprehensive visual graphic and signage solutions, FASTSIGNS is the largest business of its type in North America and is looking to expand its footprint even further. Applicants who qualify for this franchise opportunity will have good credit and a net worth of at least $250,000, with $80,000 or more liquid. The franchise fee is $44,500 and the total investment ranges from $151,140 to $293,525.
