FASTSIGNS Signs Agreement to Open New Franchise Location in Chicago's Loop
FASTSIGNS International, Inc., franchisor of FASTSIGNS, a sign, graphics, and visual communications franchise, announced it signed a franchise development agreement to open a new location in Chicago — part of the FASTSIGNS’ continued development throughout Chicago and the Midwest. The new location is targeted to open in the Loop and will be owned and operated by Tony McHale.
“With nearly 30 years of experience in sales, marketing, and branding, Tony has the expertise and passion to thrive as a FASTSIGNS franchisee,” said Mark Jameson, executive vice president of franchise support and development. “We’re thrilled to have him join FASTSIGNS as we continue to build our presence throughout Chicago.”
Prior to joining FASTSIGNS, McHale was vice president of sales, retail, for North Aurora, Ill.-based Oberweis Dairy. He also held executive-level sales and marketing positions at Mistica Foods and Scala’s Original.
“I’ve always wanted to run my own company and after almost 30 great years in the corporate world, the timing was right to make this entrepreneurial leap,” McHale said. “At every stage of growth, businesses need visual media and marketing. I believe that FASTSIGNS is ideally placed to helped companies of every size meet their marketing needs, large or small. The sheer number of services that FASTSIGNS is able to offer its clients means we can do nearly anything for our business partners. I look forward to the opportunity to help other companies maximize their marketing opportunities.”
FASTSIGNS currently has several locations in the Chicago area — including on East Ohio St., North Halsted St. in West Loop, in Bucktown, and in Lakeview — and will open another in Addison in early January 2020. FASTSIGNS is looking to continue growing throughout the market and surrounding communities.
As part of its aggressive franchise development plans, FASTSIGNS will exhibit at Franchise Expo Chicago at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center from Sept. 13-14, 2019. Interested candidates can meet FASTSIGNS’ franchise development team at booth No. 313 and learn more about franchise opportunities nationwide.
