Why Choose Speedy Signs?
When you join the Speedy Signs family, not only do you become a part of NZ's largest signage franchise, but you also buy into an award-winning franchise that has a record of success and growth for you and your new business to depend on. By doing so, you get to work with the latest technology and newest developments in the signs and graphics market, giving you a definite competitive edge.
Becoming a Speedy Signs owner means that you are investing in a turnkey business, complete with tried and tested operations, policies, and procedures.
"One of the reasons we chose Speedy Signs was because of their systems and procedures. It was a really good hybrid opportunity to get into business having been from corporate. So, literally from day one, we knew the measures, we knew the systems and procedures were there for us."
Mike Corbett, East Tamaki
Many of our franchisees had no experience with graphics, signs, or even running a business when they started. An essential part of becoming a Speedy Signs owner is our comprehensive training programme which gets you ready to open and run your business. A combination of in-class training, on-site training, and ongoing education make Speedy Signs franchisees incredibly well-equipped business owners.
"Although I’m not a sign writer or have signwriting experience, the detailed and hands-on training programmes ensured I was equipped with the right knowledge and skills to competently start business."
Craig Simmons, Penrose
As a Speedy Signs owner you are in business for yourself, but never by yourself. We support our franchisees every step of the way and are proud to help each and every owner when they have questions because that’s what makes our company strong.
We offer ongoing training and regional meetings, an annual conference, industry-specific trade shows and Speedy Signs-specific online educational opportunities to ensure that our franchisees always have access to a wealth of new information.
We have an active Mentor Programme - a support network that ‘buddies’ new owners with experienced owners to provide an extra level of support to new stores through the sharing of knowledge, expertise, and experience.
The Speedy Signs network is another reminder to our owners that they are in business for themselves, but not by themselves. As a franchisee, you will get the benefit of joining not only a well-respected and award-winning franchise, but an automatic network of passionate and collaborative people who have the same or similar experiences as you, making it easy to get help or feedback.
"The Speedy Signs brand is pretty cool - it's a family, it's a real network. I feel like I can ring anyone for advice. There are owners that have been doing it for over 20 years, and they've got a wealth of knowledge to back us up, you're really not on your own."
Carl & Renee Southee, Palmerston North
INITIAL FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
Because Speedy Signs is an established franchise 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 get up to 50% of your business funded by them.
THE MARKET LEADER
Since 1998, Speedy Signs has established itself as the only signage company in New Zealand with national coverage, and that drives more traffic and more enquiries to the doors of our franchisees every day. There is simply no other signage company in New Zealand that comes close to Speedy Signs’ 25 locations.
"We at Speedy Signs have a competitive advantage in that we’ve got a network from Whangarei down to Invercargill. That allows us to implement campaigns for our very business customers, whether they’re launching a campaign around a promotion, or they’re doing rebranding."
Craig Reid, Manukau
HUGE POTENTIAL FOR REPEAT BUSINESS
Signs help increase brand awareness for the stores and businesses in your local area, helping them to increase their sales and grow. The success of those businesses fuels your success, as about 70 percent of our business comes from repeat customers. This chain of positivity means that by supporting and bettering your community, you can help your own location thrive.
“As you would expect, the first couple of years were hard work. But even with the post-GFC challenges, we grew – thanks to an excellent system and terrific franchise support. After all, every business needs signage! We have continued to grow ever since and the last eight years have flown by. We now have a very solid business."
Kevin & Sheryl Jones, New Plymouth
