Visual communications, signs and graphics franchise Signwave has reported an 18 per cent jump in year to date sales across its 700 Australian outlets.
The company, known internationally as Fastsigns, says it also achieved a 84 per cent overall result in customer satisfaction with some centres exceeding the 90 per cent mark.
A growing customer base and a focus on full-scale signage and display solutions in the construction, retail, healthcare, industrial and education sectors was behind the increase in sales.
Signwave Australia general manager Linda Sultmann says it is very satisfying to see the group continue to own the mid-tier market space.
“Every year, we run an award for the centres to showcase their projects, and every year the projects get bigger and more amazing. It is satisfying to see the group continuing to really own the mid-tier to corporate market space and excel in servicing this market’s needs.”
Signwave has two new centres opening in Perth and Adelaide and has plans for another opening in Brisbane.
“We want people to succeed in our network,” Sultmann says.
“We are less about franchising and all about small business ownership success.
“We really encourage independent sign businesses and print business looking for growth to come and talk to us about how we can fire up their businesses.”
Signwave is planning to continue expansion of its Australian presence by offering conversion and co-branding opportunities to independent sign and print shop owners, window tinters and business professionals leaving the corporate world.
