Franchise Opportunities in the Sign Industry Point Up

Looking for a franchise opportunity with upside? Then you only have to look inside and out at all the different ways you are artfully directed to a journey’s end—a place of business, a retail shelf, customer service, and much else.

We can thank signs in all different sizes, designs, and messaging to make our world a safer, more interesting, and organized place to live, work and play. What’s extraordinary about signs is that they can communicate through any of the senses: auditory, tactile, olfactory, taste, and visual.

For small businesses particularly, signs and visual graphics uniquely fulfill both a need and a want. Signs are must-haves to broaden their brand, court customers, and create a competitive advantage. And signs are good to have to communicate critical details like location, hours of operation, specials offerings, and more.

Franchising street signA report from United States Census Bureau fixed sign manufacturing at an $11.7 billion industry. And that significant number doesn’t include the billions of dollars generated in related business sectors such as digital printing, display advertising services, graphic design business, and marketing consulting services. Combine revenues in those sectors and industry receipts swell to at least $100 billion globally. A small dent in that tidy sum would make for a nice living.

As the business of building small businesses continues to grow, the sign industry will point up as a franchise business opportunity. Nowhere is that more certain than for the Sign & Graphics Division of Alliance Franchise Brands and its fastest growing franchise concept, Image360.
