Father and Son Team Shortlisted for National Award

Chris and Andy Simpson, owners of FASTSIGNS®, a signage, graphics and visual communications company in Leeds are down to the final four contenders for a prestigious franchisee of the year award.

Fastsigns FranchiseThey have been shortlisted by the bfa (British Franchise Association) in the Long Serving category and will find out if they have won in October.

Dad Chris set up the business, which is based in York Road, with his son Andy 18 years ago. Now the company is the top performing FASTSIGNS centre in the UK and employs 12 people. So far this year it is smashing all of its previous sales records and recently produced 2000 square metres of graphics and signage in record time for the prestigious new Trinity Shopping Centre in Leeds.

Said Chris: “We are obviously delighted to be finalists in the 2013 bfa awards. We have never looked back since setting up the business 18 years ago.

“It is fitting that the nomination has come in our best ever year. Despite being in a recession, over the past three years we have had the confidence in our business to invest over £200,000 in new state of the art equipment and take on more people. We knew that in such a competitive marketplace standing still wasn’t an option and our strategy has clearly worked. Sales and enquiries are at a record high and our customer satisfaction level is running at 93%.

“We have a fantastic team here - if we win the award it will be all down to their hard work and commitment.”

The award dinner is to be held at the ICC in Birmingham on 3 October. The overall winner chosen from five award categories will win £10,000 from sponsor HSBC Bank.
