FASTSIGNS(R) Heads West to Meet with Franchisee Prospects; Offering $4 Million Expansion Funding Program for New Centers
November 02, 2010 // Franchising.com // Carrollton, Texas – On the heels of securing a $4 million credit facility from The Bancorp Bank, FASTSIGNS International, Inc., the worldwide franchisor of FASTSIGNS® sign and graphics centers, will be meeting with prospective franchisees at this year's West Coast Franchise Expo (WCFE) in Los Angeles, November 5-7, 2010.
Attending the conference will be FASTSIGNS CEO Catherine Monson and Senior Vice President of Franchise Development Mark Jameson, during which they will continue the company's growth momentum and look to further stimulate the economy by creating new permanent and sustainable jobs. FASTSIGNS will be exhibiting during show hours (Booth #806) and Monson will also be hosting a roundtable to discuss "obtaining financing in today's marketplace."
"The WCFE is the perfect place to explore viable business investments and speak with franchising experts about becoming your own boss and controlling your destiny. Franchising offers a successful model to own your own business, even in recessionary times," Monson said, noting FASTSIGNS' more than 300 markets in the US that are currently ready and approved for development. "The current economic conditions have made it difficult for franchise candidates to obtain financing; we are doing our part to offer financing initiatives for those interested in going into business via the FASTSIGNS opportunity."
FASTSIGNS offers the dominant brand name in the visual communications industry, sophisticated e-commerce capabilities and the latest technology, access to endless marketing resources and benefits that come from networking with the more than 530 FASTSIGNS centers worldwide. The company continues to grow the brand nationwide and is targeting various markets across the country, expanding through a combination of new center development and conversions of existing independent sign shops.
"The secured financing program provides the necessary capital for franchise candidates that will help us further build the strength of our brand," Monson added. "This is great news for potential franchisees that want to grow with the FASTSIGNS system."
