Signage may seem technical, but any skill set can achieve success with FASTSIGNS

FASTSIGNS doesn’t hide from the fact that it operates in a technical industry - that’s what makes the company’s franchise opportunity so exciting.

Its product range includes a diverse number of signs built using specialist machinery and substrates, with each sign being made bespoke to the customer’s requirements.

FASTSIGNS knows its model works because over 750 franchisees, from varying backgrounds and many without any previous signage industry experience, are building successful businesses for themselves today.

FASTSIGNS understands that a quick synopsis of what’s involved in the business can be daunting and you may wonder if you have the capability or experience required.

In an attempt to simplify the diverse group of franchisees FASTSIGNS has in the UK, its network is mainly made up of four distinct categories of people: partnership duos, such as husband and wife teams; high-level corporate staff looking to use their business acumen to facilitate their own gain; creative types, who are drawn to the technology and creative opportunities; and team leaders, who know they have what it takes to excel in a management-type business.

While these segments are fairly broad, these entrepreneurs have all joined FASTSIGNS with varying and diverse skill sets. Here are some examples from the network:

Simon and Friederike Slee: FASTSIGNS Hammersmith

An investment banker and landscape architect respectively, this husband and wife duo pooled their skills in sales and consultative design to build a business in central London that’s able to accommodate their family life.

Richard Wedgwood: FASTSIGNS Manchester and Bolton

After a career as a senior-level executive, Richard tired of the jet-set lifestyle and purchased his first FASTSIGNS centre in 2009, growing it to become one of the most successful in the network.

Melanie Martinez: co-owner, FASTSIGNS Crawley

Previously a freelance artist, Melanie purchased her centre with her husband and their business partner, utilising the technology available to delight their local customers. With Mel’s eye for design, she’s able to create visually stimulating signs for her customers.

Mark Phelps: FASTSIGNS Kingston

After a successful corporate career in the industrial gas industry, Mark knew that with the right team around him he could utilise his natural affinity for leadership and analytical mind to provide exemplary service to his customers.

The beauty of the FASTSIGNS model is that the company provides the required training that ensures franchisees understand its service offering, allowing them to then build a team around their skill set to enable them to effectively deliver it.

Typically, a team is made up of the franchisee, who’s responsible for the management of the business, outside sales professionals, graphic design, production personnel and marketing executives, who work together to deliver signage to their local community.
