Business Transformation, Outstanding Award Accolades and Territory Expansion!
After a transformational few years of business, we’re excited to see Paul Glover, experienced owner of Signs Express (Nottingham), extend his reach within the Signs Express network and take on his neighbouring territory of Derby.
Taking on Signs Express (Derby), will see Paul now serving customers across areas such as Sinfin, Chaddesden, Spondon, Alvaston, Ilkeston, Somercotes and Derby City Centre along with the whole of the Nottingham area.
As the UK’s leading signage and graphics business we pride ourselves in delivering a local service via our 60+ locations and 30+ years of experience. Whether you’re looking for exterior building signage, vehicle graphics, wayfinding solutions, exhibition branding or interior graphics and solutions, we’re here to offer an engaging and consultative service with quality craftsmanship.
With a clear five-year strategy for the franchise, one of the Signs Express pillars for business growth focuses on both expansion and an alternative operating model ‘hub and spoke’.
We hear from Network Development Director Aaron Davis, “As a franchisor, innovation is hugely important to us, and to ensure we have a sustainable model for the future. We’re very excited to be able to introduce our new Hub and Spoke model for our franchisees which will see centres expanding their reach and footprint by servicing multiple satellite sales offices from one production hub creating more local points of presence but driving sales and efficiencies with lower overheads. Our key aim is to increase franchisee profitability and create new ambitious business opportunities.
We’re over the moon to see Paul expand his Signs Express portfolio further by embracing our new ‘hub and spoke’ business model into Derby. Having been part of the Signs Express network since November 2018, Paul sensationally transformed the Signs Express (Nottingham) centre by trebling the turnover along with a healthy increase in profitability and has built up a loyal customer base with an exceptional reputation for customer excellence and craftsmanship. Paul has also recently been awarded the Which Franchise Great British Franchisee Award, recognising his excellence in the field. With his business in a fantastic position and sales in an upward trajectory, this seems like the perfect time for Paul and his team to expand their reach and we’re excited to see what the next 12 months brings.”
We hear from Paul, “I’m delighted to have taken on the Derby territory and I’m looking forward to immersing myself in the business and getting to know the local area. Having owned and run the neighbouring Signs Express (Nottingham) centre since 2018, I like to think our team can bring with us a wealth of industry knowledge and expertise and I’m excited to see where we can take the Derby business in the future.
As a driven businessman with a passion for the industry, I’m excited to expand our business reach and take on a new challenge and the new Signs Express ‘hub and spoke’ model has allowed me to do this. With a fantastic team behind me, I’m excited to see what the next 12 months brings.”
