In 2011, Dick Marks, owner of the FASTSIGNS®of The Emerald Coast, a full service sign and graphics center, celebrated his seven year anniversary.
FASTSIGNS is located on Beal Parkway just north of Racetrack Road in the Wright Plaza Shopping Center sharing space with Family Dollar and Goodwill among other retailers. The center provides a full range of sign and graphics solutions to area businesses, organizations and events, including banners, site and architectural signs, window and floor graphics, point-of-purchase signs, safety and identification signage, trade show displays, exterior signage and vehicle wraps.
“The past couple of years have been challenging for everyone on the Emerald Coast and we could not have been successful without the support of our wonderful community,” said owner Dick Marks. “Because of the patronage of our loyal customers, we were able to make it through the difficult economy.”
As a way of giving back, Marks lends his services to several local organizations. Active in both the Fort Walton Beach and Destin Chambers of Commerce, he has served on the Board of Directors of the Fort Walton Beach Chamber and is an active member of the Military Affairs Committee. Due to Marks’ frequent interaction with the military he was asked to be an Honorary Commander of the 46thTest Wing in 2008. Marks’ has also found time to volunteer for major area events including the Destin Seafood Festival, Billy Bowlegs Festival, Emerald Coast Foundation Poker Run and Fort Walton Beach Mardi Gras.
“Being involved in the community is extremely important to me,” explains Marks. “I feel that, as a local small business owner, it is my duty to interact with and support area businesses and organizations. Also, it is important to support the military in the region, and by so doing, I have the ability to connect with and honor members of the U.S. military service and veterans who protect our security and freedom”.
