(GREENVILLE, N.C.) May 9, 2018 – FASTSIGNS® of Greenville franchisee Steve Kouroupas has acquired the sign assets of All Star Signs and Apparel, further expanding his sign and visual graphics company.
All Star Signs and Apparel was founded by Ian Oliver and has successfully served customers in the Greenville market since 2011. FASTSIGNS of Greenville, which began operations in 2016, will acquire All Star Signs and Apparel sign assets including customer files, work in process, and will take on the existing and future sign customer base.
“Incorporating the All Star sign business is a perfect fit for our mission at FASTSIGNS of Greenville of helping customers with any and all of their sign, graphic and visual marketing needs,” Kouroupas said. “My team and I are very excited about expanding our customer base and working with Ian and James to enable business continuity for the All Star customer base.”
Mr. Oliver added, “My brother and I had decided to exit the sign business and focus on other endeavors and the transition of this business to FASTSIGNS ensures that the customer base we had developed over the past seven years is able to transition over to a company that will continue to take care of their graphics needs in the same customer-focused and friendly manner that All Star did.”
After a successful career in the corporate world, Mr. Kouroupas and his wife, Maria, relocated to Greenville and became entrepreneurs, opening the FASTSIGNS franchise location in late 2016 and quickly expanded it with the acquisition of Mammoth Signs and Printing.
“We’re seeing a tremendous market response to having a FASTSIGNS here in Greenville,” Kouroupas explained. “The Greenville market has experienced significant growth and the positive momentum here gives us the confidence to continue to invest in this area. It’s so rewarding to be able to help other local businesses and organizations grow by enabling them to communicate their brand messaging.”
Kouroupas went on to add that “having Ian and James facilitate the transition with us was a key factor in ensuring that the customers will be well taken care of and that they can build upon their previous work and continue to execute their marketing plans with us.”
FASTSIGNS of Greenville is located at 2294-A County Home Road and is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
