Jun 13, 2018

(ROCHESTER, Minn.) June 13, 2018—FASTSIGNS® of Rochester, a locally owned sign and graphics company, has acquired Sign Here effective June 1st. Jodi Babcock and her team have joined the FASTSIGNS business, expanding their capabilities and presence in Rochester and the surrounding communities.

“We are all very excited about this new expansion and welcoming the Sign Here team to FASTSIGNS of Rochester,” said owner Andy Anderson, who opened FASTSIGNS of Rochester in December 2015. “Joining forces with Sign Here provides additional business development, sales, design, production and installation resources to allow us to be one of the most capable and experienced sign companies in the area.”

FASTSIGNS of Rochester’s production facility will relocate to Sign Here’s former facility at 3717 Commercial Drive SW and obtain additional production equipment, including a latex printer, an in-house printer for producing ADA-compliant signs and an indoor vehicle bay for year-round vehicle graphic installations. Jodi Babcock and her team are bringing more than 50 years of combined experience and expertise in graphic design, sign fabrication and installation.

“While we have the support and resources of a global franchise brand, we are still a locally owned and independently operated family business,” Anderson said. “Our goal has and always will be to help our clients in any way we can—whether it’s providing completely new signs and graphics for a local business, designing a logo, helping promote an event, wrapping company vehicles, enhancing interior décor, rebranding an office space—we’re more than ready to help.”
