Carrollton, Texas-based sign shop franchisor FASTSIGNS International Inc. announces that the London-based franchise industry trade magazine, Global Franchise Magazine, has named it the Supreme Champion in its Global Franchise Awards 2019 list.
The company was recognized for its international growth of late. It has now grown to more than 700 locations in nine countries.
“The 2019 Global Franchise Awards Supreme Champion was awarded to the category winner which-in the opinion of our judges-did the most in instigating a successful international expansion program, and done it in such the way it raised the bar in global franchising,” says Ross Gilfillan, editor of Global Franchise. “Various aspects of FASTSIGNS’ entry impressed the judges, including relationship building, global intention, marketing, and the advancement in the cause of international franchising.”
Additionally, FASTSIGNS was recognized as the top signage and communications franchise globally. FASTSIGNS CEO Catherine Monson accepted both awards during the International Franchise Association Convention in Las Vegas recently.
“We are honored to be recognized by Global Franchise for our excellence in international franchising and the success we have achieved in the sign, graphics, and visual communications segment,” Monson says. “I am a fervent advocate of franchising and constantly work toward raising the bar for what FASTSIGNS can achieve and the impact the franchising industry can have worldwide. Thank you for this prestigious recognition.”
