Hear from some of our existing Franchisees about why they joined the Speedy Signs family.


My previous business was very hard work because I worked weekends and didn’t get to see much of the family. Since I’ve invested in Speedy Signs I’ve got my family life back, and seen much greater returns too.

– Alex Smith, Hastings

“A brief note to thank you and your team for two wonderful weeks at the UFG training facility. I have come away excited about our purchase of Speedy Signs Manukau. I have so much to learn and will be well and truly outside my comfort zone, which is a good thing! I know that support here in NZ with Grant and Sarah’s Team are just a phone call away. I will endeavor to ” bake the cake” using all the correct ingredients.”

– Craig Reid, Manukau

“When I made the decision to go out on my own, Speedy Signs was an easy choice as I knew they were professional, had a great reputation, and were the biggest signage group in the country.

Purchasing an existing store allowed us to hit the ground running through leveraging existing relationships. From day one we have cash flow and a revenue stream”

– Craig Simmons, Penrose

“Hi Grant & Sarah,

Just a quick note to thank you both so much for a wonderful few days in Sydney. Tracey and I thoroughly enjoyed the conference and have come back all pumped up and ready to go again!

We really appreciate all your efforts and support. Our franchise would be nowhere near as good as it is without your professional commitment, energy and infectious enthusiasm.”

– Chris Cooke, Albany

“My business quadrupled within 3 years of rebranding my independent sign business to a Speedy Signs. A system as big as Speedy Signs allows for rapid expansion “

– Adam Cullen, Dunedin

“Speedy Signs’ group marketing programme has been a big help in generating sales for my business”

– Peter Smythe, Downtown, Auckland

“When my friends heard I was buying a Speedy Signs franchise, they commented what a great reputation it had. To be honest, there aren’t many franchises as well-established and well-respected as this one. The brand is very well known.

I’m enjoying a huge change of life! It is both enormously challenging and enormously rewarding. I’m creating the business I’ve always wanted – I’m just glad I chose the Speedy Signs franchise rather than trying to do it all on my own!”

– Brenton Stewart, Henderson

“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.

Looking back, I sometimes think the only thing I really understood about business ownership before joining the franchise was accounts, but Speedy Signs has taught me so much about the other aspects – and especially about building a profitable business that has become a sizeable asset.”

– Kevin Jones, New Plymouth
