From our humble beginnings in Farmingdale, New York, our sign franchise has grown tremendously to our existing network of over 800 stores worldwide. We want to thank the many people who contributed to our continuous successes, so today, we’d like to take a trip back in time to tell our brand story. Let’s learn more about our three decades of franchising history and why you should consider joining the Signarama franchise family.
Signarama, wouldn’t be here today without the unwavering passion of the Titus family. When Roy and Ray Titus opened the first Signarama, their goal was to build a repeatable business concept to help like-minded entrepreneurs achieve their business ownership dreams. Thanks to years of continued success in this regard, Ray realized that goal when he started United Franchise Group (UFG), a consistently recognized global leader in franchise opportunities established to oversee Signarama and the other brands under its umbrella.
The Titus family put stable support systems in place to help any investor achieve their dreams; their hard work is the backbone of our success. Today there are ten brands under the UFG conglomerate with over 1,600 locations in over 80 countries. No matter where your passion lies, UFG can help you get into business for yourself, thanks to the corporate support and strong executive team.
