Franchisee Testimonials

“The money I save as a Signarama owner pays the monthly royalty fee, so basically I get everything for free!”

Bob Chapa, Signarama Franchisee, Madison Heights, MI

“Converting to a Signarama franchise was a great experience for my business partner and I. We are able to take advantage of their successful systems and support. As an independent store, the cost to advertise, create an online website and online store were cost prohibitive. We were not able to offer those conveniences to our customers as an independent company.”

Logan Lane, Signarama Tallahassee, FL

“Converting to a Signarama franchise was a great business decision. We can take advantage of Signarama’s successful systems and support. The marketing assistance allows us to streamline our operations and get more customers through the door, and the group buying power with vendors has given us the opportunity to add to our bottom line.”

David Foster, Signarama Wagga (NSW)
