August 08, 2012 // Franchising.com // PLYMOUTH, Mich. - Signs Now, a division of Allegra Network LLC, recently announced their top yearly franchise awards last month at the 2012 Allegra Network Convention in Orlando, Fla.
Christopher and Ericka Freeman, owners of Signs Now centers in Carrollton, Plano and Haltom, Texas, were recognized with the Best of the Best Award. The award is the company’s top prize and is chosen based on a combination of sales volume, sales growth and participation in corporate programs, including peer performance groups and operational studies.
Richard, Suzanne, Kenny and Kelly Pryor, owners of the Signs Now in Clarksville, Tenn., won the Highest Sales Volume Award for a single center; and Dan and Kristin Trevino, owners of three Signs Now centers in the Portland, Ore. area, received the Highest Sales Volume Award for multiple centers. These distinctions are presented to the franchise member with the highest volume for the calendar year and are broken up into two categories to account for the owners who run multiple centers as opposed to a single location.
Lanny Henderson, owner of Signs Now in Gastonia, N.C., was recognized with the Special Achievement Award. This award is designed to recognize a franchise member whose exceptional performance in all measured business categories nearly equals the pinnacle achieved by the Best of the Best honorees.
And, for the first time, Wide-Format Imaging magazine, in conjunction with Signs Now, presented Signs Now Project of the Year Award to Brian and Debbie Lamb, owners of two Signs Now locations in Sarasota and Bradenton, Fla. The contest was open to all Signs Now franchise members to honor and recognize the best of the best in projects completed from Jan. 1, 2011 through June 8, 2012. The winner was chosen by Wide-Format Imaging editorial staff and a panel of Signs Now home office staff members.
“All of our award winners represent the best of what we strive for in the Signs Now family,” remarked Signs Now President Ray Palmer. “In addition, we are extremely proud of all of our franchise members who have continued to grow their businesses in spite of the past economic conditions. We look forward to the continued growth and success of our network.”
