If you’re waiting for a sign before picking the right business… this is it!

What kind of future are you hoping to build?

If you’re seriously considering going into business for yourself, you’re probably dreaming about all the advantages of being your own boss, but want to be certain you’re making the right choice. You want all the freedom and financial gains which come with self-employment, sure, but no doubt you’re also looking for a little bit of security in this ever more crazy world. You want a business that isn’t just going to deliver today and tomorrow, but one which continues to grow in value for many years to come.

Could a signage franchise be the answer?
Well, the bad news is there’s never any such thing as a 100% guarantee of success in business. There are always risks, as we’re sure you’re well aware. However, the good news is that there is a way to greatly reduce these risks and put yourself firmly on a winning team when it comes to starting your own business.

You’ve already made the right choice by looking at franchising as an option. By working with an established brand like FASTSIGNS, which has already proven itself over the last 35+ years, you’re much more likely to succeed compared to going it alone.

Good signage is always needed; great signage is never out of demand
While many other businesses are suffering a slow-down in the current economic climate, the signage industry is positively booming – or at least it is for FASTSIGNS!

  • Average centre sales in 2021 were the highest they’ve ever been at over £300K
  • 2020 was up on 2019 – double digit % growth
  • 2021 was up on 2020 – double digit % growth
  • 2022 we are on target to be up on 2021 – double digit % growth again
  • The global signage market as a whole is forecast to grow another 6-8% a year over the next five years, making it worth more than £120billon worldwide

Signage is deeply integrated into every level of our society and culture, and has been for as long as there’s been information to display. From cave paintings showing the way to the best hunting grounds and ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, right through to modern, interactive screen displays, wherever humans need to communicate something, there have been signs.

So, believe us when we say the need for signs isn’t going to disappear anytime soon!

The the need for great signage which stands out for all the right reasons is higher than ever. Many companies have had to make major changes to how they operate over the last few years, coming to rely on franchises like ours to offer them innovative solutions which keep them competitive. Likewise, public bodies have had to significantly step up their signage game to ensure they keep visitors safe and well informed.

For both, the kind of cutting-edge and cost-effective signage solutions which FASTSIGNS franchisees offer are anything but a luxury expense to be discarded when costs need to be cut. They’re an essential part of their short- and long-term strategies. Great signage, especially if it comes from a FASTSIGNS franchisee, always delivers value far in excess of its costs. And our customers recognise it. With our wide range of products, we can deliver solutions for any situation. Check out some of these examples of our franchisees’ recent work:

It’s not just that every FASTSIGNS franchise has managed to be right on the money when businesses have needed us the most over the last few years. Forward thinking is built right into what we do, and we’re always striving to make sure our franchisees stay one step ahead.

Embracing the future
Digital signage is, without a doubt, the next big thing in the signage industry, and our franchisees have been among the first to take advantage of this booming new market. It not only provides better information management capabilities, but is usually a greener, more cost-effective option too – one which more businesses are hoping to adopt.

Digital signs provide exactly the kind of dynamic and interactive advertising techniques businesses need in the modern world, and public bodies such as universities and hospitals find the ability to constantly update information remotely invaluable. We have invested heavily in bringing this technology to our network so our partners can stand out for all the right reasons too, and plan to always be at the cutting edge of what is possible.

By partnering with a franchise which has both perfected its current offering and is always working to lead the industry with the latest innovations, you’ll be perfectly placed to enjoy a rewarding new business today, tomorrow, and for many years to come.
