FastSigns has been named as one of the most exciting franchise opportunities for those looking for a new career after military service.
Many veterans struggle to know what to do with their career after leaving the adrenaline-filled world of the military. However, many of the world’s biggest franchises pride themselves on helping veterans back into the world of work, by offering discounted rates and extra support to make sure they’re able to thrive.
Each year, Entrepreneur magazine ranks the best opportunities in the world for veterans. This year, FastSigns was ranked as the fifth best franchise for helping veterans to adjust back to civilian life, beating more than 145 international franchises to the amazing position.
If you’re a veteran looking to open up your very own location of the sign franchise, you’ll get 50% off the initial franchise fee (in accordance with the IFA’s VetFran programme). This means that any ex-service people keen to become part of the FastSigns network will be able to save an incredible $24,000+ off the initial cost.
Mark Jameson, Executive Vice President of Franchise Support and Development, explained why the franchise dedicated so much of its time to supporting the world’s veterans.
"We truly value the contributions and sacrifices veterans have made and are proud to provide them with the opportunity and support to become entrepreneurs. Currently, over 13% of franchisees in the FASTSIGNS system are military veterans, and that number continues to grow each year. We are honoured to be ranked in the top 5 franchise opportunities and the only one in our segment to break the top 30. It's a testament to our strong network of veterans that are advocates for FASTSIGNS."
Speaking about her experience with FastSigns, franchisee Danielle Miranda explained how she was able to utilise her military and graphic design background to achieve success with husband Johnny.
"Our combined expertise in graphic design and leading teams made FASTSIGNS the perfect business opportunity for us. As military veterans, we're both intensely focused on service, quality of work, and contributing to a bigger cause — whether that's helping customers meet their business goals or supporting the growth of the FASTSIGNS brand."
