FASTSIGNS® Named One of The 50 Best Second Career Franchise Opportunities

We are beyond excited to share with you the terrific news that FASTSIGNS® has been named one of the 50 best second career franchise opportunities by Franchise Business Review.

What exactly is a second career franchise? A second career franchise opportunity is often chosen after an individual retires. While some business owners invest in franchises that reflect the type of work they did in their retired corporate jobs, others choose encore careers that appeal to their interests or desire to be a part of a trusted brand. Franchise Business Review’s annual Top Franchises Guide provides a great starting point for those who are interested in beginning their own franchise research.

Over the past 18 months, their team has surveyed more than 10,000 franchise owners who chose franchising as a second career to find out exactly how satisfied they are with their franchise business.

Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review stated, "The franchise industry provides many options for people looking for a new challenge or an additional stream of income through business ownership… franchising can pave the way to a second career that offers autonomy, flexibility, and desirable income, but before leaping, it's important to do your research and examine feedback from other franchise owners on how well the franchise meets their expectations. The brands named in our 2020 report represent the best of the best franchise opportunities based on feedback from senior professionals and pre-retirees who have chosen franchise ownership as the next step in their career."

At FASTSIGNS®, we believe in giving local franchisee owners the tools and resources to create and manage their own business, while we provide the training and support to stay ahead of the competition and exceed the needs of their respected local communities.

"FASTSIGNS provides franchisees with world-class support from day one, so whether you're a military veteran, first responder, teacher, or experienced sales and marketing executive looking to leverage our brand recognition and industry leadership, FASTSIGNS is an excellent opportunity for a second career," said Mark Jameson, EVP of Franchise Support and Development, FASTSIGNS International, Inc. "Our franchisees can create their own schedule, therefore we pride ourselves on equipping entrepreneurs with the option to enjoy their nights and weekends. When you join FASTSIGNS, you are joining the No. 1-ranked franchise opportunity in the sign, graphics, and visual communications industry — and a brand committed to the satisfaction and success of its franchisees."

In fact, this is not the first highly-regarded ranking of the FASTSIGNS® brand. In fact, our company is consistently ranked as a top franchise opportunity. In 2020, Entrepreneur magazine named us the #1 franchise opportunity in its category and #55 overall on its annual Franchise 500® list, making it the only sign, graphics, and visual communications franchise to be recognized in the top 100.
