US Multi-National Media Company Signarama Plans Major Expansion In Scotland

One of America's most high profile mainstream media companies is planning a major expansion into Scotland, creating the opportunity for forward-looking business people to buy into a growing global success story.

Signarama, a leading player in the multi-billion dollar global signs and graphics sector which has 950 franchises in 50 countries, intends to establish new enterprises in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee and Perth.

The major multi-national business already has a successful Signarama franchise in Edinburgh and is actively seeking either existing sign business owners or new entrants to the sector to take the brand into Scotland's other major cities.

Signarama UK, has made it clear that the business will be looking for exceptional candidates to promote the company's industry-leading offering in Scotland. "We will not be giving this chance to just anyone," they said.

Signarama was founded in New York in 1986 by Ray and Roy Titus, who then opened, shortly afterwards, in Florida and have grown exponentially by rolling out an attractive and lucrative franchising model. Franchisees benefit from a comprehensive training programme, full marketing support, local field support, trained experts and mentors.

Franchising expert and respected Scottish entrepreneur Suzie McCafferty, whose internationally focused business consultancy Platinum Wave has been retained to assist with the expansion, said: "Opportunities like this are thin on the ground and the successful applicant will be joining a dynamic global company which can make a real difference at a local level."

Signarama offers a turn-key solution for entrepreneurs who want to build a solid business and future for themselves while maintaining a balanced quality of life. Vince Cvijanovic, an existing Signarama franchisee, said: "Signarama has the tools to help you identify the customers, products, and practices that are the most profitable."

Signarama UK added: "We have identified Scotland as a new growth area for the brand and we are excited about the possibilities.

"Franchisees may be those looking to get into the signage and branding industry from scratch, marketing organisations who wish to expand into signage and printing or independent signage or printing companies who have hit a glass ceiling and, through investing in a Signarama franchise, could grow their business to the next level."
