As our franchise opportunity is predominantly a management opportunity, depending on your experience, skills and likes, we can build your team around you! If you’re a great manager, we’ll build a team of sales, design and production around you.

Fly above the fear of failure!


What’s the biggest thing holding you back from achieving your dream of starting your own successful business?

Your answer to this will vary from someone else’s, but maybe it’s due to a lack of finances, the worry of finding customers, or wondering what your new day-day life will look like.

Whilst these are important considerations, you can find peace of mind and answers to your queries fairly easily, when you speak to someone. They come down to details, facts and figures which can easily be found, especially if you’re joining a well-established franchise like FASTSIGNS.

What’s less easy to overcome is worrying about whether you have what it takes to succeed as a business owner.

No doubt, by now, you may be fairly established in your career to date. However, making the leap to self-employment involves taking on new responsibilities, as you’ll be in charge of every aspect of your new business. And, if this is the first time you’ve considered running your own business, or you’re considering moving into a completely new industry, the prospect can be intimidating.

In our experience, nothing can kill your dreams faster than a lack of confidence, but we want to let you in on a little secret: Almost every single one of our successful franchisees has been exactly where you are now.

The great news? We’ve already done the groundwork in perfecting how to run a market-leading signage business, and our model has been tried-and-tested across more than 750 branches around the world, giving you confidence in making the change. Our franchisees come from a variety of backgrounds, with our most successful having a deep-rooted spark and desire to build their own business, by tapping into everything we make available for success with a FASTSIGNS business.

In many ways, cutting-edge signage is just the end result of what we do – what the FASTSIGNS franchise is really all about is empowering people, just like you, to seize the opportunity to become the best they can be.

A great example of this is Paul Robinson, owner of FASTSIGNS in Peterborough. Paul came from a background in some very senior roles, and was initially nervous about managing an entire business himself. However, our comprehensive training programme is designed to give new franchisees like Paul a thorough grounding in the day-to-day operations of their business, as well as marketing, accounts, and long-term business planning.

But, this is just the beginning! FASTSIGNS sticks by our franchisees throughout their partnership with us; our ongoing support includes continual business mentorship, advice and guidance from some of the very best in the industry. Paul has taken advantage of this, and reached out to us anytime he needed us, knowing he could rely on our support. As time went by, we could all see Paul’s confidence grow as he began to truly take the lead, creating one opportunity after another for his business to thrive. His whole mindset changed and, within a few years, he has become one of our most successful franchisees: In 2022, he won Franchisee of the Year at our annual awards event!

Paul may now be one of our top achievers, but he started out like everybody else, developing his business management skills along the way, with our support. After all, by partnering with a franchise like ours, you may be in business for yourself, but you’ll never be by yourself!

Fear of failure is only natural. But, don’t let it hold you back from achieving your dreams. With FASTSIGNS at your side, there’s nothing to stop you from seizing every opportunity which comes your way!
