Next Steps

Discover Signs Express

Once you have made an enquiry, our franchise Recruitment team will be in touch to talk you through our available franchise opportunities, including premium territories, prime locations and any resale options within your area.

This is also our opportunity to hear more about you and what’s drawn you to our franchise as well as what you want to achieve.

We will also require an up-to-date CV at this stage and will discuss your investment, the ongoing support and training you receive from our dedicated UK Franchise Support and why a franchise with us could be the right choice for you.

It is important that not only do you feel Signs Express is the correct opportunity and path to being your own boss, but that we also feel you are the right, motivated individual, to join our growing network of 65 centres. Signs Express are an ethical franchise company and as such are committed to answering any of your queries – there are no stupid questions!

Following on from our initial conversations, we will then invite you to attend one of our Discovery Days, which are designed to give you an in-depth view of Signs Express. 

Why attend a Discovery Day?

Based at our Franchise Support Centre in Norwich, our Discovery Days are designed to maximise your exposure to our operations, enabling you to have a clear understanding of our business and the potential of what a franchise with us could mean for you.

Hosted by our franchise recruitment team, you will get an inside view of our franchise network and meet the directors of Signs Express.

You will also be introduced to management and support teams, who have a wealth of experience and are dedicated to helping you make a success of your business.

Join us for a Discovery Day

Our free, no-obligation, Discovery Day’s typically run on the 3rd Thursday of every month at our dedicated Franchise Support Centre in Norwich. Occasionally we can also hold bespoke days to suit you, so be sure to speak to us about your options.

The next Discovery Days will be held virtually on the following date at 10am:

In order for you to get the most of your Discovery Day we only have a limited number of places, so make sure you don’t miss out.

Book a Discovery Day


At the end of a Signs Express Discovery Day, you will have the opportunity to have a one-to-one meeting with our management team. This is an ideal time for you to ask any questions you may have and talk through any personal thoughts you have in relation to our franchise opportunity.

We want you to leave your Discovery Day feeling you have comprehensive information, the answers to all your questions and to feel excited at the opportunity to join the vast, rewarding signs industry.  

The day is completely non-pressured and is a key part of our franchise recruitment process, ensuring this is the right business opportunity for you and vice versa.

Next Steps

Investing in a franchise is a big decision for everyone involved, so we welcome partners and family members along to our Discovery Days so they too can get an insight into Signs Express.

We will give you a comprehensive ‘Discovery Pack’ to take away in order for you to review in your own time. We will give you time to digest everything before contacting you for a follow-up telephone interview and ask you to complete a personality test beforehand.

From here, we will arrange visits for you to meet a few of our existing franchisees and see some centres in action. If you then feel Signs Express is the right choice for you we will work with you every step of the way to assist you in planning towards attending our next training course.

Hear from our 1st Franchisee

 “I liked the idea of running my own business for myself, but not by myself. A franchise with Signs Express, in the lucrative signs industry, offered me just that.

The Franchise Support Centre have always been very supportive and flexible in the help they offer both myself and my team.

I want to keep growing and developing both my business and talented team, which will then allow me to spend more time at our holiday home abroad!”
