FASTSIGNS®, a prominent sign, graphics, and visual communications franchise, achieved the Silver designation at the 2023 Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) Awards of Excellence in Franchising. The accolade, presented in the Category of 30-99 Franchisees, was bestowed upon FASTSIGNS during the Awards Gala at the CFA National Convention in Niagara Falls, Ontario, on April 3, 2023.

Considered the pinnacle of franchise achievement in Canada, the CFA Awards of Excellence in Franchising recognize franchise systems that exhibit exceptional performance in franchise relations, leadership, training, and communications. This year, over sixty-six CFA-member franchise brands participated in the program, with FASTSIGNS standing out for its unwavering commitment to excellence.

Mark Jameson, Chief Development Officer at Propelled Brands, expressed pride in the brand’s consistent recognition: “Receiving acknowledgment from CFA as the Franchisees’ Choice for over a decade and now being named a Silver winner of the Awards of Excellence this year are great honors for our franchise and a testament to the strength of our brand and our support team.”

FASTSIGNS, a recipient of the Franchisees’ Choice designation for the eleventh consecutive year, has demonstrated its dedication to providing world-class support to its network. This support has enabled franchisees to establish themselves as leaders in visual communications within their communities.

Donna Bilodeau, franchisee at FASTSIGNS of Windsor, Ontario, attested to the brand’s commitment: “FASTSIGNS was a ‘leap of faith’ or a ‘leap before you look’ type of situation, but we have never regretted it for a single moment. The support from FASTSIGNS is second to none. The corporate team is designed to assist the franchisees in making our businesses front-runners in the industry.”

As the CFA President and CEO, Sherry McNeil, highlighted, “The CFA Awards of Excellence in Franchising celebrates the very best in Canadian franchising in 2023. The winners have demonstrated the importance of Growing Together® and the symbiotic partnership between franchisor and franchisees. Regardless of the size or concept, a strong relationship between the franchisor and franchisees is fundamental to a franchise system’s success. We congratulate FASTSIGNS for their achievements.”

FASTSIGNS anticipates continued growth across Canada and aims to strengthen its network further in the upcoming year. The brand’s remarkable success reflects its dedication to fostering strong relationships and providing unparalleled support to its franchisees.
