Franchise Gator has selected FASTSIGNS® as the No. 1 pick on its list of Top 100 franchises for 2016 which was released earlier this week. The annual ranking recognizes the top franchise systems with proven track records for growth and quality that require smaller investments than larger, more well-known brands making them solid investments for the everyday franchise buyer.

“FASTSIGNS has long stood out as a solid franchise system, so it was no surprise to me when they topped our list this year,” said Franchise Gator’s GM Eric Bell. “They possess all of the traits we look for in a top franchise, including consistent growth, low turnover, a strong management team, and of course strong financials. We are excited to have FASTSIGNS represent the top spot for 2016.”

The online franchise directory reviewed hundreds of Franchise Disclosure Documents using a formula developed with the help of Rick Bisio, author of the Educated Franchisee, to compile the list using criteria such as financial stability, profitability, franchisee satisfaction, growth, and long-term sustainability.

“Ranking No. 1 on the Franchise Gator Top 100 list is another validation of our solid business model and the outstanding performance of our franchise network,” FASTSIGNS International, Inc. EVP of Franchise Support and Development Mark Jameson said. “Day in and day out, our franchisees are placing their customers as a top priority – delivering innovative visual solutions to help other business owners move the sales needle forward. We’re proud of what they’ve achieved and are grateful to have such an amazing network of franchisees and a model that has great continued growth opportunity for those seeking new franchise opportunities.”
