Carrollton, Texas-based sign shop franchisor FASTSIGNS International announces the signing of 12 new franchise agreements that will open soon across the nation. New locations include the Chicago area; the Pacific Northwest; Tampa Bay, Florida; Central Texas; and the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The company says it intends to open a total of 45 to 50 new locations by year’s end.
FASTSIGNS also announces the opening of its first-ever co-branded center in the United Kingdom. The company launched its co-branding program in 2012. It offers independent operators with print-related services the opportunity to add the FASTSIGNS brand and solutions to their business while continuing to operate their existing businesses independently.
The company’s co-brand program accounted for 20 percent of all new franchise agreements signed in 2015.
FASTSIGNS has more than 600 franchised locations in nine countries.
