Retired New York police officer will provide sign and visual graphics solutions to business community.

(WEST HEMPSTEAD, NY) September 10, 2019—FASTSIGNS® of Nassau County-Garden City/West Hempstead, NY, a local sign and visual graphics company is now open under the direction of franchisee, Bill Castoro, a retired New York City police officer who has lived in the Village of Garden City since 1992.

Toward the end of his career as a New York City Police Officer, Castoro began researching the idea of starting his own business. It was not his original intention, nor did it cross his mind, to open a sign business. As he began looking into many business ideas and many franchises, he came across FASTSIGNS.

He started looking deeper into the FASTSIGNS opportunity, crunching numbers and doing a lot of research. After many months of research and speaking to countless franchisees, Castoro could not see a downside to FASTSIGNS or the Visual Communications sector.  He also discovered that FASTSIGNS honors First Responders with a 50 percent franchise fee reduction rate, and this was the final selling point for him.

“I started to notice FASTSIGNS Commercials, started thinking about signs and visual communications and everywhere I looked, I saw a potential FASTSIGNS Customer,” said Castoro. “I knew that a franchisor that recognized First Responders and Veterans would be a company that I would like to join. I signed my Franchise Agreement and never looked back!”

FASTSIGNS of Nassau County- Garden City/West Hempstead, NY is located at 400 Hempstead Turnpike. West Hempstead, NY. The business is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday.
