FASTSIGNS® Certified as a 2017 World-Class Franchise®

By The Franchise Research Institute®


LINCOLN, NE (1/6/2017) – FASTSIGNS® has received World-Class Franchise® certification for the seventh consecutive year from the Franchise Research Institute®.


The recognition comes after an independent franchisee validation survey conducted by the Franchise Research Institute, in which 63.6% of all FASTSIGNS franchisees participated. The survey was designed to determine the quality of 10 key metrics crucial to franchisee success within the FASTSIGNS franchise system.


According to Jeff Johnson, Founder of the Franchise Research Institute, “FASTSIGNS understands the importance of the partnership between franchisor and franchisees, and relies on unbiased data to make decisions which help to maximize franchisee sales and profitability. Further, FASTSIGNS’ willingness to share this ‘look behind the curtain’ provides a level of transparency in their franchise that is critical for franchise candidates.”


The survey asked FASTSIGNS’ franchise owners to rate their franchisor through a series of questions in categories such as overall quality, growth potential, support and communication.


Among the responses received from FASTSIGNS’ franchisees:

  • 100% gave a positive rating to the overall quality of the franchisor.
  • 99% gave a positive rating to the quality of products and/or services received from the franchisor.
  • 98% gave a positive grade to the ongoing training and support supplied by the franchisor.
  • 98% gave a positive rating to the overall communication between home office personnel and franchisees.
  • 98% gave a positive rating to the opportunity provided by the franchise system.



“This certification from the Franchise Research Institute® is a true testament to FASTSIGNS’ commitment to our franchisees and how our company is determined to provide each person with the tools and training they need to succeed,” said Catherine Monson, President and CEO, FASTSIGNS International, Inc. “We are excited to see the out-pour of validation from our most trusted allies, our franchisees, and look forward to continuing helping them succeed.”
