SignsExpress Franchise Case StudyWhat did you do prior to becoming a Signs Express franchisee?

Worked as an IT project manager/consultant.

What have been the ultimate rewards?

Constantly learning new skills whether it be regarding technology, client management, sales & marketing, administration or even application and fitting signs. I think it is also very satisfying seeing your products on display around the area. The business has allowed me to spend more time with my family and gives me the freedom to choose my working hours.

How has your business progressed or expanded since you launched?

It has grown steadily although seems to be hitting a peak at the moment. This may be due to the economic environment as we are still acquiring new clients – both large and small. We have also become more efficient and have moved into larger premises which will cater for future growth.

What has been your biggest order to date?

Our biggest order was for a company called Masterlease. The project was for a fleet of 70 cars which all needed vehicle graphics. Our biggest client at present is the Rugby Football Union; we’ve been working with them since 2004.

Where would you like to see yourself in 10 years?

Ideally retired and playing golf but in reality I’ll be continuing to build the business.
