March 05, 2013 // Franchising.com // CARROLLTON, Texas – The National Business Media (NBM) Show is making its first stop of the year right in FASTSIGNS backyard of Arlington, Texas. FASTSIGNS International Inc., the worldwide franchisor of FASTSIGNS visual communications, signage and graphics centers, will be exhibiting at the show to educate attendees on franchise opportunities with the company.
The show, which will be held March 7-9 at the Arlington Convention Center, is a business-to-business trade show designed to educate attendees on the latest in sign making, digital printing, apparel decorating, engraving, personalization, promotional products and more. FASTSIGNS Senior Vice President of Franchise Support & Development, Mark Jameson, will be at Booth No. 314 to speak with independent business owners about the company’s franchise conversion and co-branding programs.
“The NBM shows are always packed with leaders and business owners in the industry who come looking for ways to take their business to the next level,” Jameson said. “This provides the perfect landscape for us to share the latest franchising programs we have available at a time when many segments of the business services category are becoming more conglomerated. Business owners are looking to add services that distinguish them from others in the category and FASTSIGNS does just that.”
As part of the support provided to independent business owners, FASTSIGNS offers financing for conversion and co-branded agreements, for as little as $10,000 down in addition to reduced royalties. The company also offers the leading brand name in the sign and graphics industry and the latest technology, cost savings and relationships with national vendors and suppliers, comprehensive marketing and visual communications solutions and the benefits that come from networking with FASTSIGNS centers nationwide.
As FASTSIGNS conversion and co-branding franchise programs continue to grow, the company expects to have six co-branded agreements signed by the end of the first quarter and has already opened a total of four centers under the new program. The franchisor has also successfully converted 28 independent businesses into FASTSIGNS centers in the last three years.
