Franchise cost is one of the most important things to consider when you sign a franchise agreement. As with any new business, it’s important that investors have a good idea of exactly what their investment will cover. Signarama has been in business for more than 30 years, and in that time we’ve developed a highly-detailed idea of exactly what our franchisees need in order to open one of our stores — this detailed investment breakdown is one of the reasons we call ourselves a turnkey business! Below is a breakdown of a few of the most important items included in your investment in a Signarama franchise.
A key component of your investment in a Signarama franchise is the training you’ll receive. With our guidance, you’ll learn everything you’ll need to operate one of our franchises. Through a classroom training at our headquarters in West Palm Beach, Florida, and one-on-one time with one of our experts right in your own location, you’ll learn the basics of running a sign-making franchise. This comprehensive training is one of the most important franchise costs your investment will cover.
The Right to Do Business Under Our Name
Use of the Signarama brand name is a key franchise cost to consider. One of the most attractive aspects of franchising is your ability to do business under the name of a well-established company. Your franchise fee will entitle you to open your doors using the Signarama brand name, helping you to attract clients on the basis of our strong reputation.
Equipment, Fixtures, and More
Running a sign-making franchise requires an investment in certain production equipment. One of the benefits of franchising as opposed to starting a business from scratch is that we can help you identify what equipment you need for your store. Independent business owners need to conduct tedious research on which equipment is available, and make painstaking decisions when it comes to choosing the right systems for their store. When you franchise with Signarama, you can rely on our expertise to help you select just the right equipment for your location.
Of course, running any retail business requires an investment in fixtures such as shelving, counters, and so forth. Our vast experience in the industry has allowed us to include an estimate of these costs in your initial investment as well.
A Well-Negotiated Lease
Another component of the Signarama franchise cost is the first few months of your new lease. Of course, this cost will vary depending on the location you select, but we’ve included a ballpark figure in the estimated investment cost.
By the way– another benefit of franchising with Signarama is the assistance you can count on when negotiating a lease! We know that location and monthly lease costs are an important ingredient in the success of our franchisees, so our experts will help you with finding a location and negotiating a lease for a great price.
These are just a few of the franchises costs associated with opening a Signarama franchise. Contact us to learn more about what’s included in your estimated initial investment!
