FASTSIGNS announces winner of Sales Improvement Award

FASTSIGNS has announced Mark Phelps as its winner of the Sales Improvement Award at the company's 11th annual franchise meeting. Mark has operated the Kingston upon Thames franchise since 2005 and recently acquired a second FASTSIGNS franchise in Staines.

Mark says: 'I was thrilled that winning the award came so soon after taking over the business in Staines. It's certainly been a very busy and very challenging year, but recognition like this is a real compliment to everyone who has worked so hard.

'I always wanted to operate a second franchise, so when I got the chance to purchase Staines franchise, I felt I had to seize the opportunity with both hands! Although both locations operate independently on a day-to-day basis, a major benefit of owning two centres is that one is able to support the other if required, for example in terms of production or sales support for a big or urgent job.'

FASTSIGNS client base for Kingston and Staines includes Legoland at Windsor, Chessington and Thorpe Park theme parks and the new Heart Shopping Centre development in Walton on Thames.
