Before getting into the sign and display business, prospective owners often ask a lot of questions.
We want to make it as easy as possible to find answers to those questions. Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions about getting into the sign industry, franchising, and becoming part of the Speedy Signs group:
How much does it cost to open a Speedy Signs franchise location?
This depends on many factors including the franchise fees for the company, the costs to secure the location, and legal requirements for the area. The Speedy Signs franchise fee is $74,500 with the total investment coming in around $210,000. For more information visit our investment page.
How much money can I expect to make running a sign franchise?
How much a sign franchise location makes can vary widely, but once we have had an opportunity to explain the business to you we will provide you with a disclosure document that provides more detailed information.
How do I know which franchise is the best in the business?
Many reputable magazines rank franchises every year and publish a list that can help franchisee candidates determine the best franchise based on factors like financial strength and stability, growth rate, start-up costs, and number of years the company has been in business.
Can I obtain financing to help me start a sign franchise?
The Speedy Signs business model has been put through the test, and as an established business with a proven track record of success, it’s an accredited franchise with all the major banks in New Zealand. This means that if you qualify, you will get up to 50% of your business funded by them.
How do I keep up with the latest sign trends if I open a sign franchise location?
Speedy Signs has a dedicated R&D department where we are constantly testing new products and machinery in the signage industry. As we are the world leader in signage, many vendors and suppliers come to us first with their latest products and technology to take to the market.
Do I have to be a printing, sign, or design expert to get started?
Absolutely not. Speedy Signs provides comprehensive training so that franchisees are not required to have any prior experience in printing, design, or sign sales. In fact, our best franchisees have all come from completely unrelated backgrounds (e.g. air traffic control, engineering, project management, food).
