Signarama produces a wide variety of products for a diverse range of customers, from providing design services to installation and fitting.

With a reputation for excellence and high-quality service, Signarama is regarded as the brand leader on a global scale, making it a highly reputable business to join with as a franchise.

How much does a franchise with Signarama cost?

To start a franchise with Signarama, you can expect to invest approximately £35,000 plus VAT for the franchise package itself, with the additional investment required to set up a store. This can take the overall investment figure up to £85,000 to £150,000.

The cost for this can vary depending on different options available for store fit solutions – Signarama offers a “Signarama Light” store fit package to start the business with a smaller outlay, and a Full-Service Sign Centre package, which provides a fully equipped facility. Both options enable franchise owners to start the business and get it running immediately, and give potential franchisees the opportunity to choose according to their financial position, background and experience level.

In addition to initial fees, franchisees will also be required to pay a monthly management service fee and to contribute towards the national marketing fund. The cost of these will vary depending on revenue.

What kind of experience do you need to have to run a Signarama franchise?

You do not need to have previous experience in the signage industry before starting a franchise with Signarama, as complete training on all aspects of the business is provided within the franchise package. The business is primarily run as a management franchise, and you would be expected to oversee other staff carrying out practical activities, so you should be able to demonstrate some experience in a management or team leading role. While Signarama provides training on running a business, you should bring personal motivation, determination and a drive for success.

 

What kind of training and support do you get with a Signarama franchise package?

Signarama provides all of the new franchisees with a robust and detailed training and support programme. This begins with a two-week residential training session at the world headquarters based in Florida in the US. This is the industry’s most advanced training facility and gives Signarama franchisees an excellent advantage over other competitors.

The two-week training programme reviews all key aspects of the business, including training on everything you need to know about sign production – from signage design software to choosing the right material and production options. Franchisees will also learn about the key aspects of running a business, including insight into marketing, advertising and public relations, bookkeeping and general business operations and administration.

Following the two-week initial training period, franchisees then undergo continuous training on the job at an existing franchise, as well as receiving technical and marketing training on-site, at your own store, as well as continued support and advice over the lifetime of the business.

 

When can a Signarama franchise expect to start making a profit?

Signarama provides extensive support for all of their franchisees, and most businesses start to break even within the first year.
