FASTSIGNS, the world’s premier business-to-business marketing solution franchise with more than 530 locations, announced it has signed deals for new franchises in Kitchener and Toronto, Ontario that will increase its presence in Canada to 24 centers and growing.
The two new Canadian locations are the latest step in FASTSIGNS overall franchise expansion program, which calls for a combination of opening new FASTSIGNS centers, as well as converting existing independent sign shops to the brand through a streamlined lower investment process.
Furthermore, the expansion comes as the company reported double-digit sales growth in 2010 in the Canadian market.
“We consistently outperform the competition on multiple levels,” said Mark Jameson, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development for FASTSIGNS. “As an industry leader, we focus squarely on profitability, satisfaction and success of our franchisees,” said Jameson, noting that FASTSIGNS ranked No. 1 for five years running in Franchise Business Review’s Franchisee Satisfaction Survey.
