Some of the latest Franchise Award Winners at the 2019 Signs Express Convention

More than half (58%) of the sign industry decision-makers who took part in the online survey, reported that business turnover has increased in the past year, with a further 24% saying it has remained constant. In addition to an increase in turnover, 53% have seen customer numbers increase during the past 12 months as more and more businesses are understanding the value of good quality signage.

In terms of profitability, 46% of respondents revealed that they have seen profits increase in the last year.

David Catanach, director of ISA-UK, powered by BSGA says:

“More than half of the business decision-makers who completed the survey agreed that there is plenty of work available in the sign and graphics industry demonstrating the potential growth within this thriving sector.’’

With signs and graphics business owners showing such positive reaction to the growth of the industry, it is no surprise that Signs Express have welcomed a record-breaking number of franchisees ever into their network over the past year.

This researched industry growth has also been evident within Signs Express. The largest UK signage franchise has had the biggest growth in over 15 years equating to the investment of more support staff and a brand re-fresh.

Sam Armstrong who is managing director of signage consultancy Make it Happen and vice-president of ISA-UK confirmed by saying:

“There appears an influx in orders as well as quotations, with tenders in the abundance: hopefully an indication of even more positive times ahead!”

With an industry worth £500-million and the ever-increasing profit and customers within this sector, owning a Signs Express franchise provides amazing growth opportunities.

As a Signs Express franchisee, you get the ongoing support and training needed to not only get your business off the ground but also throughout your time as a member of the Signs Express family. Not only that, but you also have the security of knowing, that having been established for 30-years, Signs Express has strong foundations and a proven business model to make this opportunity a personal and professional success.
