Why not start a few rungs up the ladder? asks Sign*A*Rama: Climb the ladder of success

Why not start a few rungs up the ladder? asks Sign*A*Rama UK Regional Vice President Chris Gibson, who recommends considering an opportunity in the sign service industry

People don't think about signs as a real business opportunity until they are shown what SignARama is all about. In fact, 99 per cent of the time the individuals who have become franchisees with SignARama were not originally looking for a full sign service sign centre franchise.

Ask any of the 40 or so SignARama franchise owners in the UK, or even the 800 worldwide, and they will tell you that once they visited our stand at an exhibition or received information, all of a sudden they notice signs popping up everywhere, almost like a wake up call! The concept works and it is proven. SignARama franchisees run and manage full service sign centres which provide businesses with all of their sign requirements in what is clearly a repeat order market.

Customers want signs, but they are not often sure what sign they want and this is where the SignARama concept works so well. Customers walk into a lobby and are introduced to plenty of examples of different signs utilising plastic letters, vinyl and digital graphics. They can see what other satisfied customers have commissioned the store to create and produce - say on a vehicle, or a shop front. It may be a banner that a hotel has used to promote an event, or one of the national account jobs carried out by that store for Tesco or the Hoover Candy Group.

Although this sounds complex, it is certainly not rocket science. The sign industry has embraced computer-driven design with technology that is simple to use and straightforward to train people on.

As well as new start-up opportunities, we have a number of re-sales available for prospective franchisees to consider. After a period of time most existing businesses come up for sale - it's what franchisors call the 'churn', with people looking to retire, move on to another venture, emigrate...the list goes on.

Our plan is to develop the UK network to around 75 locations over the next three years, so if you are looking for the right opportunity look into the opportunities offered by SignARama - there may even be one starting up a few rungs of that success ladder!
