FASTSIGNS International Inc., a franchisor of FASTSIGNS, is ranked as one of the Top 100 Global Franchises by Franchise Direct. The Top 100 Global Franchises ranked FASTSIGNS as No. 33 for its sales and growth, international presence, and over 35 years in franchising.
Mark Jameson, chief support and development officer, says, “The dedicated network of franchisees across the FASTSIGNS system allows us to continuously reach new heights and, as we enter our 36th year of business, our commitment to their success has never been stronger.”
The sign, graphics, and visual communications franchisor signed over 31 franchise agreements in the U.S. and Canada in 2020. The company credits much of its success in 2020 to centers deemed as essential businesses, allowing franchisees to pivot services and focus on serving their customers.
In 2021, FASTSIGNS aims to sign at least 35 franchise agreements across the U.S. in markets such as Southern California, the Midwest, New England, and along the Northeast Corridor and focuses on its co-brand and conversion programs. FASTSIGNS has helped print shops, photography studios, embroidery shops, and more diversify their product lines and services to meet growing demands in signage and visual graphics.
The news comes after Entrepreneur magazine recently ranked the company No. 1 in its category on the Franchise 500 list.
