Carrollton, Texas-based sign shop franchisor FASTSIGNS International Inc. announces that it has been named a top franchise for veterans in Franchise Business Review’s 2019 Top Franchises for Veterans report.
FASTSIGNS says it was among more than 250 franchise brands that participated in the company’s research, in which franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training and support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.
“We’re proud to provide veterans with the opportunity and support to become successful entrepreneurs through the franchise business model. Currently, over 12 percent of franchisees in the FASTSIGNS system are military veterans and we value their contribution to helping us build a top-ranked franchise,” says Mark Jameson, executive vice president of franchise support and development. “We are honored to receive this prestigious recognition and continuously pride ourselves on the strong network of franchisees that are advocates of the FASTSIGNS business opportunity.”
FASTSIGNS is known in the industry for equipping its franchisees with tools vital to securing the ongoing success of each individual location, and it claims to offer military veterans the most comprehensive support and financial incentives available in the signage industry. FASTSIGNS participates in the International Franchise Association’s (IFA) VetFran program that provides military veterans with special incentives and assistance to open a franchise. Veterans and first responders, including paramedics, emergency medical technicians, police officers, sheriffs, and firefighters, can take advantage of FASTSIGNS’ 50% reduction on the franchise fee—a savings of $24,875.
