Have you thought about what kind of role you’d like to take on when you open your new FASTSIGNS business? As a business owner, there are many hats you will need to wear, but one might just suit you to-a-T when you wear it, making you feel invincible!

At FASTSIGNS we know the customers we work with are the heroes of their business. So, it’s up to our franchisees, and their teams, to bring the magic touch to help customers stand out from the noise. But as a franchisee, how do you learn all these incredible skills?

Whether you’re joining us as an experienced sign-maker, who wants to add value to your existing business, or as a complete newcomer to the industry, we’re known for delivering the high-standard signage solutions the FASTSIGNS brand is famous for.

Our franchisees have a reputation for being real wizards when it comes to sign creation. Not only do they consistently produce fantastic looking products, but they know how to reach the heart of exactly what clients need. It might seem like magic when customers see the final result, but it’s all a skill we’ve been able to share, across the network!

There’s no Hogwarts for training our franchisees, unfortunately, but we can promise you and your team will be taught everything you need to know, in order to conjure up your own successful business! Of course, joking aside, there’s no mystery to what makes our franchisees so successful, and certainly no smoke and mirrors. Instead, we use a very down-to-earth, comprehensive, and structured training programme, designed to equip you and your staff with all the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in your new roles.

Our training experts have already enabled hundreds of people, just like you, to grow a profitable and rewarding signage business; you too, can also benefit from their experience and expertise. You’ll be trained in how to effectively use all our cutting-edge, signage technology which comes with your franchise, of course, as well as gaining access to all the technical know-how you’ll ever need.

Our training programme is delivered as a combination of classroom-based learning, online resources, and hands-on experience at one of our centres. You and your team will soon be highly skilled, capable of delivering high-quality signage to your customers. But, this is just the beginning. Signage may be the end product, but it’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what makes our franchisees so successful.

A FASTSIGNS franchise is about delivering effective and creative solutions to your customers, working closely with them so they stand out from their competition, for all the right reasons. This means learning to understand them and your work, on a much deeper level than just the practical. This is where the magic really happens!

For this reason, you’ll also receive in-depth training around implementing our business model, how to embrace our brand values, and how to always go the extra mile for your customers. This happens with in-depth business management and leadership training, and support on how to generate leads and sales. To help you along the way, you’ll also be mentored by one of our more experienced franchisees, as well as one of our Business Consultants. With our help, you’ll become as much a part of your customers’ success story as their custom becomes a part of yours.

None of this stops once you’ve launched your business. We’ll continue to give you guidance and support, so you and your team can upskill, learn new techniques, and stay up-to-date with the latest industry trends. You’ll also have access to our franchise board groups and message forums, and be warmly welcomed to our annual conference where we share ideas and best practice, together.

We firmly believe continuous learning and development plays a vital role, in keeping FASTSIGNS franchisees at the very top of their game. This is why we’ll be with you at every step, so you keep your competitive edge.

You could be weaving a little bit of your own FASTSIGNS magic before you know it!
