Mark Merrick New Owner of Signs Express (Croydon)

Signs Express offers a franchise opportunity with a big difference. Established for over 25 years, the market leading sign and graphics company is expanding their network. With over 60 centres in the UK and Ireland, there are some fantastic premium locations and resales of existing centres currently available.

Buying an existing centre can be a great way of getting off to a flying start. Signs Express has recently welcomed Mark Merrick as the new owner of the long established Croydon centre. 
Based on Silverwing Industrial Estate in Croydon, Mark has already invested into his new business, recruiting for extra staff as he looks to grow the centre and expand their existing customer base.

Mark previously worked as a Surveyor for Szerelmey Ltd, London’s leading building and restoration company and was responsible for large scale contracts. Having also worked in the commercial sector, Mark has a wealth of knowledge in business and has over 20 years of management experience.

When a Signs Express resale opportunity became available in Croydon, Mark saw it as the perfect new business venture where there is tremendous scope to utilise the trading history, full potential of the assets in the Croydon area, along with assistance from Signs Express Headquarters, to grow the already extensive customer base.

Mark Merrick said:
"With a long history in Croydon, Signs Express has an excellent reputation and a solid customer base so I was very interested in taking on the opportunity. The signs and graphics industry is a great business venture as every business needs a sign. With experienced staff in place, a fully equipped production unit and a ready-made customer base I am excited to join the franchise network and am keen to grow and progress the business."

Craig Brown, Managing Director of Signs Express commented:
"We are delighted to have Mark on board. He has a customer focused ethos to provide a quality and reliable service that sits very well with our own. He has the managerial experience required to run a successful Signs Express franchise coupled with enthusiasm and the desire to grow the business. We wish Mark every success with the growth of Signs Express (Croydon) and very much look forward to working with him along the way."

Established in 1996, Signs Express (Croydon) has a focus on customer service and quality products, the centre offers a full range of signs and graphics to areas in and around Croydon such as Warlingham, Coulsdon, Purley, Mitcham, Kenley and Caterham.

Signs Express franchise opportunities can be highly lucrative for the right candidate and as a management franchise, you need no previous sign industry experience to join the Signs Express network.
