Janiv Patel - Under 30 and a Signs Express Franchisee

Franchising is becoming more and more popular with the younger generation. In the last two years, almost one in five new franchisees launching their own business has been aged under 30.

Signs Express - Janiv PatelJaniv bought an existing Signs Express in Milton Keynes centre in July 2015 after meeting Signs Express at the Franchise Exhibition in Birmingham. Buying an established, successful production centre meant he hit the ground running from day one.

When deciding between owning a small independent or a franchise business Janiv had to weigh up all the pros and cons and it became apparent that franchising suited his ambitions thanks to the support of the Signs Express HQ and being part of a nationwide, industry leading brand.

Janiv Commented:
"I’ve always been ambitious and knew at some stage I would want to take control of my career and own my own business. The decision to franchise resulted from the opportunity to buy an already successful business in a suitable location. Being able to take control of my career, yet walk straight in to an established and profitable operation, was too good an opportunity to turn down."

Since taking on the Milton Keynes centre, Janiv has already seen very positive results and has expanded their team to ensure they make their predicted growth targets. In his personal life, Janivs’ wife is also a young entrepreneur, which just goes to show you that age does not have to dictate your career.
