We are proud to announce that Entrepreneur magazine named FASTSIGNS® #5 in the 2019 Top Franchises for Veterans ranking. We are the only sign, graphics, and visual communications franchise in the top 30 of this year’s issue.
"We truly value the contributions and sacrifices veterans have made and are proud to provide them with the opportunity and support to become entrepreneurs,” said Mark Jameson, Executive Vice President of Franchise Support and Development. "We are honored to be ranked in the top 5 franchise opportunities and the only one in our segment to break the top 30. It's a testament to our strong network of veterans that are advocates for FASTSIGNS."
Why We Made the Cut
Like the other 149 franchises ranked by Entrepreneur, we offer incentives to encourage veterans to become franchisees. Currently, we offer a 50% reduction to the franchise fee, providing savings of nearly $25,000.In fact, over 13% of franchisees in our system are military veterans, and that number increases every year.
"Our combined expertise in graphic design and leading teams made FASTSIGNS the perfect business opportunity for us," said Danielle Miranda, a veteran of the U.S. Army and North Carolina Army National Guard. She and her husband, a Marine Corps veteran, recently signed a franchise agreement to open a FASTSIGNS center in Tracy, CA. Together, they have skills in multimedia illustration, mass communication, advertising, extensive operations, and leadership. "As military veterans, we're both intensely focused on service, quality of work, and contributing to a bigger cause — whether that's helping customers meet their business goals or supporting the growth of the FASTSIGNS brand."
Entrepreneur also ranked us the #1 franchise opportunity in our category and 95 overall in their 2019 Franchise 500® issue. As the world’s first and most comprehensive franchise ranking, Franchise 500® is a competitive measurement tool used by entrepreneurs and franchisors alike.
