Fastsigns Holdings Inc. acquires GTN CAPITAL GROUP, the parent company of NerdsToGo, an IT services franchise brand. Fastsigns Holdings Inc. is the parent company of FASTSIGNS International Inc., which is the franchisor of FASTSIGNS, a sign, graphics, and visual communications franchise.
“We are excited to officially welcome NerdsToGo, a growing franchise organization in the IT services business, into our family,” says Catherine Monson, CEO of FASTSIGNS International. “We look forward to what lies ahead for this exciting brand, especially the continued growth that will benefit NerdsToGo customers, franchisees, and team members.”
Fastsigns Holdings says connectivity is more critical than ever with COVID-19 accelerating remote working, online learning, and business continuity. Poorly functioning IT systems are a headache and productivity constraint for consumers and small businesses who need reliable solutions.
“Our goal is to add value to the business as well as to expand and grow the NerdsToGo brand as a standalone business. David Colella, CEO and founder of NerdsToGo, will remain in place as brand president and will continue to grow the brand and support franchisees,” adds Monson.
“As part of our ongoing strategy to provide outstanding support and growth opportunities to our franchisees, we have joined the FASTSIGNS family,” Colella explains. “We are excited to join forces with one of the most powerful organizations in the franchise industry.”
Colella continues, stating that NerdsToGo can leverage FASTSIGNS’ franchising expertise in development, support, marketing, brand positioning, and unit-level economics to grow the NerdsToGo business.
