American industrialism and entrepreneurship are a combination that can provide exceptional return in international markets. Whether you’re an American in search of unique opportunities to do business abroad or a resident outside the U.S. seeking American sign franchise opportunities, international locations are booming. Signarama knows exactly what it takes to adapt our businesses to new cultures and business climates, and we’ll work with you to fit the needs of the area you’ve chosen.

Additionally, you’ll have training and licensure opportunities at your disposal that can help to conform our existing franchise models to a new climate, establish brand recognition and even provide opportunity for later expansion. The following are just some of the locations ripe for sign franchises outside of the United States:

1. Ireland

With its gorgeous scenery, friendly populace and relaxed atmosphere, Ireland is a wonderland for vacationers from around the world. Add to that a government-driven initiative to promote tourism in the interest of righting a bleak economic outlook, and you’ve got a match made in heaven for enterprising Americans looking for business opportunity on the Emerald Isle. The country is wide open for sign franchises, with the only major west coast city, Galway, a tourism hotspot with jumping real estate and hospitality industries.

2. Portugal

With a terrific standard of living and progressive social policy, Portugal is a small, business-friendly country with an advanced economy, small population and booming hospitality industry. Situated on the Iberian Peninsula and quite close in proximity to the United States (although most tourists are from western Europe), Portugal enjoys significant nature, health and rural tourism. Wages are low and unemployment high, which means the country is flush with capable employees eager to work for a responsible and motivated employer.

3. South Korea

Officially titled the Republic of Korea, South Korea boasts a high-end economy and a ranking as one of the world’s largest exporters. It’s been recognized by the World Bank Group as a business-friendly location, with some variables of particular note — the ease with which business owners may resolve legal disputes, and the ease of trade across borders. The capital city, Seoul, is thriving, with access to more modern technology than most Americans can dream of.

International opportunities abound for interested Americans or citizens of countries outside of the U.S. You’ll want to explore our Master License opportunities, which grant business owners in certain markets exclusivity over those markets, including the ability to develop the brand further beyond the initial franchise.
