Signs Express provides a wide range of signs and graphics for all business purposes across the country.  Darryl saw the big potential the franchise had to offer and in January this year, bought the business from former owner Jon Hill who has now retired.  John Hill was one of Signs Express first franchisees, trading since 1993.

Darryl previously worked as the General Manager for a large packaging company.  After working there for 14 years he decided it was time for a new challenge and wanted to set up his own business.  “The aim was to find a business with a secure structure in place and a firm foothold within the B2B sector.” 

Commenting on purchasing the Signs Express (Gloucester) franchise, Darryl Lillie, says “After working for a large organisation I felt it was time to look to set up my own business and after doing a lot of research I immediately became very enthusiastic about the concept of the Signs Express franchise.  It has been great to buy a business which has been trading for the past 18 years very successfully, which is very reassuring when you’re starting out on your own business in the current recession.  I am very much looking forward to the future and seeing my business grow from strength to strength with the support of Signs Express head office based in Norwich!!”
