CARROLLTON, Texas -- FASTSIGNS International, Inc., franchisor of FASTSIGNS®, the leading sign, graphics and visual communications franchise, was recently named #1 in the Business Services sector on Franchise Business Review's list of the Top Franchises for 2023.

"Being named one of Franchise Business Review's top 200 franchises and the #1 in our category is an immense honor and a testament to the strength of our brand," said Mark Jameson, Chief Development Officer at Propelled Brands. "This achievement was made possible through the efforts of our franchisees to further establish FASTSIGNS as the go-to resource for visual communications in their communities. This year, we look forward to continuing to deliver quality services to our customers and attracting the best franchise candidates by offering a range of options, from owning a franchise to adapting an existing sign business through a conversion or co-branding with a complementary business."

"When FASTSIGNS pursued us to convert our business, we decided to make the leap after seeing what we could do and what potential support there was for our business growth," said Karrie Brock, franchisee at FASTSIGNS of Toledo and FASTSIGNS of Maumee. "The network of other FASTSIGNS owners has been the biggest key to our success. Being a part of a larger network that can share ideas, help with solutions and even help produce or install anywhere in the world is priceless."
