Fastsigns has been named a top 100 ‘Game Changer’ in Franchise Dictionary Magazine’s 2020 rankings.
The signage franchise earned the title for the third year running, while its sister brand, IT services business NerdsToGo, was listed as one of 20 Brands to Watch this year. The league tables are published in the December 2020 issue of Franchise Dictionary Magazine.
Since Fastsigns Holdings Inc. acquired NerdsToGo’s parent company GTN CAPITAL GROUP in October, the two brands have worked alongside one another.
Fastsigns International Support and Development Officer and Fastsigns franchisor Mark Jameson was thrilled to hear of the magazine’s ranking. He said,
"To have both brands under the Fastsigns Holdings Inc. umbrella be recognised by Franchise Dictionary is incredibly exciting and a testament to both brands' commitments to making an impact in the lives of franchisees and in the communities they serve.
“We continuously strive to provide world-class products, services, and training and support to help our franchisees better serve their customers and position Fastsigns and NerdsToGo as the leaders in their segments."
Both Fastsigns and NerdsToGo have been able to continue working throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, as they were labelled essential businesses. The change of circumstances has given Fastsigns the chance to adapt operations and focus on providing even more value for customers and communities. Meanwhile, NerdsToGo has been able to support the increasing number of remote workers.
Franchise Dictionary Magazine’s CEO, Alesia Visconti, praised the franchise system as a means of developing productive businesses.
"Franchise ownership allows people to follow their dreams of being their own boss and taking control of their futures. It supports people working for themselves but not by themselves. It's a community of professionals all supporting successful business ownership.”
“A brand that earns the Top 100 Game Changers designation raises the bar and clearly sets itself apart!"
