Louisville, KY (July 15, 2021) – Jason and Cynthia Brown, owners of the local signage and branding franchise, Signarama Dixie, partnered with local celebrity Chef Fernando Martinez this past year to collaborate on the design and creation of the main sign for his newest restaurant concept, a Cuban-inspired venue called La Bodeguita de Mima. Situated directly on Market Street, the Brown’s Signarama Dixie team was successful in delivering a finished product that mingles the essence of old-school Havana with a contemporary look similar to that of a major cosmopolitan city. The modern capabilities of Brown’s in-house design team resulted in an LED-decaled creation that both exceeded public expectation and garnered their location the Signarama ‘Best in Show’ award during the Sign Awards at the United Franchise Group World Expo event in West Palm Beach, FL.
The annual award is one of the global franchise’s most coveted honors to receive, one which weighs the best creativity and design of the signs being fabricated at the company’s 400+ domestic locations against one another to see which individual concept stood out and reigned supreme among the thousands of completed projects that took place throughout the calendar year.
Jason is a veteran of the signage industry, having spent 15 years immersed in the field, initially working as a sales representative before he was encouraged by colleagues to go into business for himself by becoming a Signarama franchisee. His wife Cynthia runs the business with Jason and has an extensive career background in the non-profit industry in business development. Their store location off of Dixie Highway in Louisville Kentucky has been in business for 8 years and has been an integral component in the branding and growth of countless local businesses, both in Louisville and beyond.
“It’s an incredibly exciting feeling for our team to not only be able to take pride in the services we provide our clients, but to be recognized as the best in the business for our work,” says Cynthia Brown. “Above all else, this award is a testament to the community of entrepreneurs and business owners who have trusted in our creative visions.”
The expertise and capabilities of the team the Browns have assembled is seconded only by the culture they’ve built around their individual franchise. With a focus on lending a hand to small business owners, the Signarama Dixie’s team top priorities remain promoting the success of their clients and developing long lasting, rewarding relationships with customers – all while supplying them with the highest quality sign creations at a reasonable cost.
“We want our passion to explode through the work that we provide to each and every business. I fully believe it’s the dedication we have to improving the neighborhoods and areas where we work and live that’s responsible for securing this years ‘Best in Show’ award for us. After all, the greatest results are most often found when you lead with your heart, and we have a passion for signs,” says owner Jason Brown.
