(CARROLLTON, Texas) Aug. 25, 2016 FASTSIGNS International, Inc., the leader in signs, graphics and visual communications, announced today it is seeking to expand its global footprint with an emphasis on Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, among other countries in Southeast Asia. To further fuel expansion, the fast-growing brand will exhibit at the Franchise & License Expo Sept. 2-4 in Jakarta, Indonesia and is seeking master franchisees for the region.

FASTSIGNS International, Inc. currently has over 615 centers worldwide in nine countries, but is looking to expand. Due to the ongoing worldwide need for visual communications and digital signage technology, the company expects to open another 45 to 50 centers in 2016 and sign agreements to enter two or more new countries. The company invites candidates to visit the World Franchise Associates (WFA) pavilion at the Jakarta Convention Center to learn more about the benefits of joining the brand.

“Global expansion continues to be a part of our franchise development plans, and having the ability to network with over 15,000 attendees at the leading franchise expo in Jakarta could not come at a more opportune time,” said Mark Jameson, EVP of Franchise Support and Development, FASTSIGNS International, Inc. “While our ongoing training and support is unparalleled, we have also been recognized as a top global franchise by leading business publications. We invite entrepreneurs to learn about the franchise that's leading the next generation of business communication, offering businesses across the world innovative ways to connect with customers in a highly competitive marketplace.”

FASTSIGNS will work with World Franchise Associates, a global franchise services company that helped facilitate the master franchise deals in the United Arab Emirates and North Africa. Troy Franklin, World Franchise Associates chief operating officer for Southeast Asia, will lead efforts in identifying qualified candidates to join the franchise.

“Its no secret that the business climate across Southeast Asia is proving healthy and fruitful,” said Troy Franklin, World Franchise Associates chief operating officer for Southeast Asia. “The rapidly expanding markets in Southeast Asia offer huge potential for U.S. based brands, and we’re excited to help FASTSIGNS International identify qualified candidates interested in joining the ever-growing, award-winning franchise.”

The 14th Annual Franchise and License Expo Indonesia brings emerging franchise industry and business brands in a show packed with beneficial networking programs. Franchise and License Expo Indonesia is targeted to give a better understanding of the industry and maximize the participation of it’s exhibitors as well as visitors.
