Whether you’re an individual looking for a change, or an established brand like FASTSIGNS, now is the time to grab the future with both hands.
If you have any experience of running a business, or you’ve played a leading role, you’ll know success is as much about mindset and outlook, as it is about having a great product.
At FASTSIGNS, our advanced signage manufacturing techniques are just the beginning. We want to extend our commitment to being a cutting-edge company in every aspect of our business, including how we work as a franchise. After all, if you are looking to take charge of your future and build a profitable business, you want to be sure you are part of a proven brand putting creativity, drive, and flexibility at the heart of everything we do.
More than experience
Even though we have almost 40 years of successful growth, to become one of the world’s leading signage franchises, we’re not ones to rest on our laurels. We understand the key to successful business growth is the ability to adapt to the times, plan ahead, and always strive to be bigger and better.
This year is no exception – which is why, once again, we are going all out to strengthen and galvanise our capabilities and ensure we keep our competitive edge. We have set ourselves strategic objectives, which we are confident will deliver FASTSIGNS’ franchise partners the boost they need to take their business to the next level. They are ambitious but achieving more than they could have dreamed of, benefitting from the strength of our brand, and the support we offer.
More than current capabilities
As it is, by the end of this year, we aim to increase our franchisees’ profitability by 25% and increase centre sales volume. But, we won’t achieve this by putting pressure on our franchise partners – quite the opposite. We intend to help them succeed, by increasing their satisfaction with the franchise, with more support based on what they want from us, which will help them increase their productivity. We already pride ourselves on helping our customers stand out for all the right reasons, so we want to make sure we continue to help our franchisees to do the same.
This will be achieved in several ways, all of which involve significant investment in our network and services, with a special focus on improving our technology even further:
- We aim to develop a new and improved data warehouse, to improve our data resources for better safety and communications throughout the network.
- We plan to integrate this with a new website that has better e-commerce capabilities, giving our franchise partners new and better ways to deliver on their customers’ expectations.
By improving and streamlining our systems, we aim to ensure our partners are perfectly positioned to take full advantage of changing consumer behaviour. This will enable them to build successful businesses, designed to be seen.
More than a business for today
We also aim to further enhance FASTSIGNS’ visibility, by continuing to work on our brand. This is a continual process, of course, but we plan to invest strongly in discovering how our customers view us and how we can strengthen our position as a market leader. We’ll be looking at key insights into customers’ changing needs, to make sure we stay ahead of the curve in what we can offer them. We’ll then be sure all of our offerings are customer-centric and user-friendly.
The drive for all of these changes will come from our management team, who will continue to provide all the leadership and support our franchisees need, to keep growing their businesses for many years to come. Their emphasis for the next year will be on helping every member of the FASTSIGNS family focus on evolving for the future.
