(GENEVA, IL) March 2021 - FASTSIGNS® of Geneva, located at 1115 Randall Ct. is now open for business under franchisee Jason Scharrer. Scharrer, who grew up about just north of the area, has a degree in graphic design and has been working in the printing and graphics industry for nearly 20 years, which includes a brief two-year time in college working for FASTSIGNS.
In addition to Scharrer, the team at FASTSIGNS consists of Sydney Hanchett, Visual Communications Specialist and Joshua Lothson as Graphic Design/Production Specialist. Sydney is a recent college graduate with a bachelor's degree in psychology who plans to get her MBA with a focus on marketing. Joshua has been working in the printing and graphics industry for a few years after graduating from college with a bachelor's degree in fine arts. He has some great real-world experience working with flatbed printers, dye sublimation, laying vinyl and creating trade show displays.
“When I worked at FASTSIGNS nearly 20 years ago I recognized what a great franchise it was. I always had it in the back of my mind that if I was ever in a position to be able to start my own FASTSIGNS franchise, I would jump at the opportunity,” said Scharrer. “I have been working toward this goal for a long time, and I am incredibly excited to get started.”
FASTSIGNS of Geneva looks forward to joining their local chamber of commerce in addition to other marketing and networking groups. The center is open from Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and FASTSIGNS is offering a 10% discount off $500 or more for in-house projects during their first 60 days in business as a community courtesy.
“We look forward to helping the businesses and organizations in our area communicate with their customers and employees in ways they might not have considered,” said Scharrer. “We understand the unique challenges that are ahead of us because of the pandemic, but we are excited to be a part of welcoming visitors and employees back to these vibrant communities.”
