The survey includes thirty-three benchmark questions, relating to the franchisee’s experience and satisfaction as well as market area, business lifestyle, and other demographic characteristics.
“As a franchisor, there is no greater gratification than when our franchisees are happy, satisfied and receiving the support they need from the corporate team,” said Catherine Monson, CEO of FASTSIGNS. “Our ultimate goal is to help franchisees thrive in their businesses and achieve their personal dreams, and when that happens, everyone is happy.”
Of the many tactics employed by FASTSIGNS to keep its franchisees satisfied, the company puts emphasis on providing franchisees with ongoing training on the latest technologies, industry changes and best practices. The franchisor also hosts regional town hall meetings where franchisees have the opportunity to learn about company initiatives, ask questions and share ideas.

In addition, FASTSIGNS assists with marketing, site selection and construction management services for new centers.
“FASTSIGNS continues to impress us--making the list for the eighth consecutive year. Although they are a large system focused on growth, it’s apparent they still focus on the support and success of their current franchisees,” said Franchise Business Review President Michelle Rowan.
