FASTSIGNS® Inks New Conversion Deal with High Tech Signs in Victorville, California
CARROLLTON, Texas – Continuing to set the bar as the leader in the visual communications industry, FASTSIGNS®, the world’s premier business-to-business marketing solution franchise with more than 530 locations, announces the signing of a new conversion franchise in Victorville, Calif.
The deal is part of a national growth strategy focusing on expansion through a combination of new center development and conversions of existing independent sign shops. As part of the conversion initiative, FASTSIGNS offers the dominant brand name in the visual communications industry, the highest average unit volumes, unparalleled franchisee satisfaction, access to endless marketing resources and all of the benefits that come from networking with various centers nationwide.
“FASTSIGNS offers a proven economic model and stability to individuals looking to increase their profits while decreasing costs,” said Mark Jameson, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development for FASTSIGNS. “Our conversion initiative allows store owners to experience all the benefits and support of an established system while remaining in business for themselves.”
The new location marks yet another independent sign shop owner taking advantage of FASTSIGNS new conversion program offering financial incentives for independent sign shop owners. “With this program, the financial assistance will help the independent owner move ahead during these tough economic times,” added Jameson.
The new Victorville FASTSIGNS is expected to convert in January 2011 and will be a conversion of an independent sign and graphics store, High Tech Signs. Having owned and operated the location with his family for the past 18 years, local owner Dick Freeborg, 77, saw it as an ideal time to affiliate with an industry-leading franchise system.
“Joining FASTSIGNS presents a great opportunity to take my business to the next level and provide support for my family-run business,” said Freeborg. “With the ability to utilize a nationwide pool of resources, I’m expecting to see an immediate increase in business.”
