Visit Signs Express at the National Franchise Exhibition (NFE) this Autumn

Posted 05.08.2015

Signs Express is excited to announce that it will, once again, be attending the National Franchise Exhibition at the Birmingham NEC on the 2nd and 3rd of October 2015.

Celebrating our 25th Anniversary at the NFE in 2014

Celebrating our 25th Anniversary at the NFE in 2014

Over 500,000 people in Britain are currently employed in franchising across the UK and according to a NatWest/British Franchise Association (BFA) survey conducted in 2013 the industry has amassed an impressive annual turnover of £13.7 billion. In other words, there has never been a better time to join a franchise with a successful business model.

Having celebrated its 25th anniversary last year, Signs Express has proven the strength of its business model time and time again. In fact, many of its centres have been trading for 10 years or more, demonstrating the potential profit, industrial stability and career satisfaction in becoming a franchisee.

Fortunately, becoming a franchisee is now easier than ever, with the instigation of a new scheme in 2014 where Signs Express invests the £20k franchise fee paid to them by incoming franchisees straight back into the new venture. Thus, saving franchisees capital when opening a business and ensuring the best possible start for every new centre.

Due to continued demand for its products and services, Signs Express is still looking for franchisees to join the network in several key locations. Find out more at:

The NFE is your opportunity to see what franchise businesses have to offer and ask any questions that you may have to those that know the industry inside-out. The event has been running for over 20 years and is exclusively in association with the BFA, so you can meet face-to-face with brands that have met the BFA sanctioned code of ethics. 

There will be further excitement at the exhibition as Signs Express (Manchester) franchisee, Lee Eaton, has been nominated for the BFA Franchisee of the Year Awards where the winners will be announced on the eve of the exhibition.

The exhibition is also the ideal opportunity to find out about the training and support that Signs Express provide to their franchisees. With no previous sign industry experience required to become a franchisee, the company offers a highly comprehensive training package to any incoming franchisees, including access to profitable sales leads; business mentoring; technical training; operations and accounts management as well as on going bespoke support for every one of its centres.
