Hear from Craig Brown, MD of the award winning Signs Express Franchise. Craig talks about why you should consider joining a signs franchise rather than opening an independent business, how franchisors can help and why it’s an exciting industry to be a part of.
The signs industry is highly lucrative, with great profit margins and an ever increasing customer base. Did you know that on average, you see more than 400 signs every single day?
It’s a sign makers job to make sure these images stand out from the crowd. Being part of a signs business is incredibly rewarding, bringing a customers’ vision or brand to fruition.
Opening an independent signs business requires a great deal of knowledge of both the practical skills needed as well as considerable resources in order to get your business of the ground.
