What are the Benefits of a Co-Brand
FASTSIGNS is the only signage franchisor in the UK to offer this type of operation; by coupling your existing enterprise to a FASTSIGNS centre, you become part of a network with over 660 like-minded franchisees.
The Co-Brand offering allows us to help businesses turn as little as 400 square foot of unused floor space in your existing location into a FASTSIGNS centre, utilising the space to help you create more revenue.
The modern customer prefers to work with one specific supplier on their project rather than coordinating a raft of suppliers to deliver one small element of a larger task. For instance, if a company rebrands, a photographer may be involved to take the pictures in the project. If the photographer was to Co-Brand with FASTSIGNS, they could supply the photography, logo design, signage, promotional items plus so much more!
Other benefits of Co-Branding include:
- Power of the FASTSIGNS Brand
- Being part of a network of like-minded business owners
- Reduced royalties in the first year
- State of the art training and support
- Preferential rates with trusted suppliers
- Access to national and local marketing
- Gain competitive advantage over competitors.
