"Receiving the Franchisees' Choice designation year after year is a testament to the unwavering dedication of our franchisees and our long-standing partnership with CFA to provide world-class sign and graphic services throughout Canada," said Mark Jameson, chief development officer at Propelled Brands. "With a continued focus on driving franchisee profitability throughout our network and growing our footprint across North America, we look forward to offering additional franchise opportunities and unparalleled support to entrepreneurs in Canada."


The Franchisees' Choice Designation honors CFA member franchise systems with exceptional rankings in network satisfaction. Franchisees assess their franchisor in key areas of the business model, including the franchisee selection process, information package, leadership, business planning and marketing, and training and support. For prospective business owners, the award signifies that a brand has received a solid endorsement through its satisfaction ratings from its current franchisees.

In addition to receiving the Franchisees' Choice designation, FASTSIGNS was recognized with the Multi-Year Streaks Award in honor of the brand's 12 consecutive placements on the list. FASTSIGNS also received the CFA Milestone Award recognizing 30 years of membership with the organization, demonstrating FASTSIGNS' long-standing partnership with CFA and growing presence in Canadian markets.

"When I first moved to Canada, I decided that I wanted to be in charge of my own destiny and work for myself. Being new to the area, I needed an established franchisor to guide and support my entrepreneurship, and FASTSIGNS stood out for its professionalism and ability to aid my business' growth," said Jose Azavedo, FASTSIGNS franchisee of South Mississauga and Oakville. "Helping businesses become successful by providing our signs and graphics is very rewarding, and I feel proud to offer my customers value through FASTSIGNS."

The total investment for a FASTSIGNS franchise is approximately $240,080 - $310,569, including a $49,750 franchise fee. Ideal candidates have a net worth of $300,000, of which $80K is liquid. The brand offers a special incentive for veterans and first responders which includes a 50% reduction on the franchise fee – a savings of $24,875.
