Get the Answers to Your Burning Sign Business Questions
Before investing in the signage and printing business, smart franchisees should ask a lot of questions.
Asking questions is an important part of doing your research. Learn as much as possible about the investment so that you are making an informed decision from the start. Our goal is to make it simple for you to find the answers to all your sign business questions, which is why we have compiled this list of our most frequently asked questions.
Why should I invest in a sign franchise instead of starting my own business?
Investing in a franchise grants you access to a number of resources that you wouldn’t otherwise have. A proven business model is worth everything when you are beginning, which is why franchising is so popular. Additionally, a lot of the initial legwork — things like hiring protocols, training manuals, operations policies – is already done for you with a franchise, so you can hit the ground running as soon as you open.
How much does it cost to open a sign franchise?
Many factors influence the total investment cost, including your specific location and building, the legal requirements of your area, and more. Signarama franchisees expect to invest around $200,000, which includes the $64,500 franchise fee. Visit our investment page for more details.
How much money can I expect to make running a sign franchise?
This is probably the most commonly asked sign business question. There is a lot of variation in how much you can make as a Signarama franchise owner. However, the average gross annual sales for a Signarama franchise in Australia that has been open one year with an outside salesperson is $930,331.
How do I know which franchise is the best in the business?
There are many magazines, publications, and organizations that measure franchise opportunities and rank them according to each year’s numbers. These lists and rankings are instrumental in helping those who are interested in franchising make a decision on where to invest their time and money.
Can I obtain financing to help me start a sign franchise?
Because our business model has been proven on a worldwide scale, ANZ has listed us as an accredited franchise, which means that qualifying franchisees may be able to fund as much 50% against the business.
How do I keep up with the latest sign trends if I open a sign franchise?
One of the great things about investing in a franchise instead of opening your own shop is that you don’t have to keep up with the trends on your own! We have an outstanding R&D department that is constantly on the lookout for the latest and greatest. They test new products and the latest technology, so our franchisees stay on top of the industry. This is our secret to being the world leader in signage.
Do I have to be a printing, sign, or design expert to get started?
Absolutely not. We provide a thorough training program to prepare our franchisees for every piece of running a sign business. Many of our franchise owners do not have prior experience in printing, design, signs, or even owning a business, and they are able to build strong businesses by following our proven business model.
