FASTSIGNS, a sign, graphics, and visual communications franchise, ranks first in its category on Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 list of top franchises. This is the sixth year FASTSIGNS has made this list.
During an evaluation, each franchise is given a cumulative score based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500 in ranking order.
Recognized as a resource for potential franchisees, the Franchise 500 ranks FASTSIGNS as No. 47 overall — the only sign, graphics, and visual communications franchise to be recognized in the top 100 — for its performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength, and stability, and brand power.
“We are thrilled to once again be named the No. 1 franchise opportunity for signage, graphics, and visual communication in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 list,” says Mark Jameson, chief support and development officer at Propelled Brands. “Our franchisees’ role of being the go-to resource for visual communications in their communities continues to grow stronger every day.”
“The past year has been one of the most challenging for businesses in recent memory, which made putting together our 43rd annual Franchise 500 list more enlightening than ever,” says Entrepreneur editor-in-chief Jason Feifer. “The companies named to this year’s list showed us how being resilient, supportive, and nimble can help navigate extraordinary challenges and also underscore the grit and innovation that define entrepreneurship.”
