With industry experience or a degree in business, there’s no doubt that entrepreneurs have what it takes to start their own businesses. However, there’s a simpler, more efficient way to start your own business that provides the freedom of being your own boss along with many advantages, like franchise training, for instance.
Franchising provides a solid foundation that includes a proven business model to follow. You’ll be able to focus on launching and running your business without worrying about details like hiring requirements, training process, or sales protocol.

We don’t just stop at training; our outstanding support is available for the life of your business. We’re there to assist you every step of the way, including help with financing options, site selection, lease negotiations, renovations, staffing, and more before you open.
We’ll ensure your store is best suited for your new business with a design, layout, and store setup. We’ll help you with the installation of fixtures, furniture, and equipment, including setting up your computers with the software systems you need to run your business smoothly and effectively.
3. Ongoing Support
Our support doesn’t end once you’ve opened your doors! We provide continuous ongoing support in every facet of the business. Our franchisees receive assistance with business coaching and marketing, real estate, and sales. Our support is unmatched, as we have regional offices throughout the world to ensure franchisees find local assistance in their area.
The franchise support we provide is designed to help you succeed and ensure you’re up to date on the latest developments in the industry. We’ll help you advertise and increase your location’s visibility with your local website, location-specific social media, and a highly effective mentoring program where you can reach out to a successful franchisee near you who can guide you.
You’ll also have a network of other franchisees to connect with and learn from, in addition to continuing education programs, special achievement recognition, technical assistance, discounts through our preferred vendors, technology and vendor support, and more.
4. Flexible Franchise Concepts
Signarama features flexible franchise concepts so our stores can work in a variety of settings in your area. We provide the real estate assistance you’ll need as you start your business, including consultation, advice, specifications, and requirements when it comes to designing your store.
Our stores occupy 1,000 to 1,500 square feet of retail space or 2,000 to 2,500 square feet in a light industrial space. Our requirements for the interior space are minimal, as we have specifications and standards that will be met with leasehold improvements. For the exterior space, we’ll provide you with the guidelines for parking spaces, signage opportunities, and street frontage in order to find the best location for your business.
5. Room to Grow
One of the greatest aspects of the Signarama franchise opportunity is that we offer our franchisees room to grow. Whether you choose to add additional locations or become a master licensee or area developer, we have opportunities available to further leverage your investment and increase your potential profits without wasting resources.
With a foundation in B2B, you’ll have a steady stream of business that provides further networking opportunities to keep your customer base growing. Our expansion options make it possible to greatly increase your customer base, multiply your potential profits, create more opportunities for valued employees, and allow you to fully leverage the time you’ve spent mastering our business model.
