On December 7, Chimaobi, age 56, opened a Signarama printing franchise retail location at 12579 Westheimer Rd. that serves all of west Houston. Signarama is the world’s largest sign franchise, providing a full range of comprehensive sign and graphic services to both consumers and commercial customers.
Unique Branding and Messaging Solutions
Every Signarama store features trained specialists who understand the needs of today’s market and can offer unique branding and messaging solutions including: business signs, vehicle wraps, digital signs, advertising and marketing services, and much more.
According to Chimaobi, every business needs signage, not only when opening but with different events that are constantly taking place throughout the year. Because the sign industry is currently a fourteen billion dollar market and only continues to grow, this has proved to be a great opportunity to invest in this printing franchise industry.
Chimaobi previously worked as a field safety coordinator in the oil and gas industry. He started a small marine safety equipment supply company that supplied major shipyards throughout Asia with marine valves, flanges, and marine safety goods. In 2009, Chimaobi purchased an existing home healthcare agency, assembling a great team and once the business started humming along on its own, he began looking for another challenge which led him to the opportunity with Signarama.
Tried and Proven Business Model
The Signarama printing franchise business model is tested and proven, so the important work has already been done. Our company is unique because when it was founded, we took sign production from industrial facilities and warehouses to clean, accessible retail spaces. Of all the sign stores combined internationally, Signarama today makes up eighty percent of the sign franchise market. That’s a huge chunk of the industry!
Chimaobi is looking ahead to the future, hoping to open up two additional locations, with one equipped to meet virtually any need within the signage and visual communications industry. He foresees revenue within five years topping $1.5 million annually.
If Chimaobi could give a little bit of advice to other would-be entrepreneurs, he’d say, “Do your homework. Don’t wait until you have all it takes. Take the first step. Commit. Dream.”
