Everything that it produces is custom-made, so gross margins are high. Many franchisees have gross profits exceeding 70 per cent. With more than 35 years’ experience in signage and graphics, Signarama has weathered all types of economic environments and flourished in all of them, for one simple reason: signage continues to be the single most cost-effective form of advertising available.
In addition to initial fees, franchisees will also be required to contribute to the national marketing fund. The cost of these will vary depending on revenue.
