August 12, 2010 - CARROLLTON, Texas – FASTSIGNS, the world’s premier business-to-business marketing solution franchise with more than 530 locations, announces it will open its first franchise location in Long Island during the latter half of 2010. The new center will be located in Westbury, NY and is the first of 10 franchises planned for the marketplace.

The local expansion announcement is the latest step in the company’s national growth strategy calling for 20 new centers throughout the United States, expanding through a combination of new center development and conversions of existing independent sign shops through a streamlined lower investment process.

“Long Island is an untapped market presents a huge opportunity for FASTSIGNS to grow in the market,” said Mark Jameson, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development for FASTSIGNS. “We’ve built our success across the U.S. and internationally because of our expert customer service and quality reputation. Now is the ideal time for us to establish ourselves in the competitive market with our proven business-to-business marketing solution.”

The new Westbury FASTSIGNS will be owned by Mike Boccasini, who is no stranger to owning his own business. Opening up a FASTSIGNS franchise will allow Boccasini, who most recently owned a trucking company, to continue fulfilling his entrepreneurial spirit. The sign and graphics industry became a passion of his upon realizing signs and graphics help small business owners market their business in such an uncertain economy. Owning a FASTSIGNS franchise will allow him to take advantage of a large franchisee support network and FASTSIGNS’ industry-leading business model.

“I am excited to have the opportunity to open the first FASTSIGNS franchise in Westbury,” said Boccasini. “Joining the FASTSIGNS franchise system will allow me to provide local business owners in Long Island a fast and simple sign buying process. I want customers to feel that their need is our top priority and we will always consistently deliver a high quality product to our customers.”

As part of the expansion initiative in Long Island, FASTSIGNS is offering financial incentives for new FASTSIGNS franchisees for the first year.
