Anne Hitch, owner of Signs Express (Peterborough & Kings Lynn) is proud to be part of the Peterborough Proud to Franchise group. Supported by the (BFA) British Franchise Association, Proud to Franchise is a campaign to: help recognise good franchise businesses, educate people about this type of business model and why it benefits its customers.
Franchise owners in the area have seized the opportunity to show the advantages to their potential customers and promote their brand within the community.
Anne Hitch comments: “It’s great to be part of the Proud to Franchise group; we are educating customers about the benefits of being part of a franchise and what it means for them as a consumer.”
Anne continues: “Since joining the group my business has gained two new clients, Belvoir Lettings and Cartridge World.”
Signs Express recently carried out work for Terry Lucking from Belvoir Lettings. Anne and her team worked with Terry in the development of the Belvoir vehicle graphics for 3 of the company’s minis. The finished design was slightly different from the design on paper, as Anne worked towards making the design more practical tailoring it to the client’s needs.
Terry Lucking said: “I met Anne thorough the Proud to Franchise group and I’m pleased I did. Anne provided a great service and has a great eye for detail. Changes needed to be made from the original design and luckily Anne was on hand bringing the design to life making the whole process seamless.”
The Signs Express centre has also provided work for another Proud to Franchise group member Brian Driscol from Cartridge World. Anne and her team of skilled sign makers produced and fitted a full vehicle wrap on a white car for Cartridge World.
Brian Driscol commented: “I would like to thank Anne and her team for the excellent full vehicle wrap that they did for us. The impact that it has already had is quite remarkable. Anne made the process for me very easy, the fact that she coordinated with the design team at my franchise support centre and the vehicle supplier meant that I was able to relax knowing that it was all in safe hands.”
As part of the UK and Ireland’s leading signs and graphics company, Signs Express (Peterborough & Kings Lynn) provides a complete design, manufacture and installation service for all forms of signage.
