Speedy Signs

New Zealand’s largest signs and graphics network use the latest technology in an exciting industry with huge opportunity. Proven systems and sound business practices with a focus on high quality and excellent service set us apart in the signage market. No prior experience required.

The opportunity

Speedy Signs thrives in both positive and challenging economic times as it provides essential products to every business and industry. Across New Zealand, Speedy Signs is not only renowned for quality sign products but also their focus on exceptional customer service, and providing a full solution to customers.  That's good news for our franchise owners.

When the franchise first began in New Zealand in 1998, it literally launched a revolution in the sign industry by introducing automated graphic design to what had traditionally been a market of independent craftspeople. Since then, we've become New Zealand’s largest network of independently owned and operated locations with 25 stores from Whangarei to Invercargill – the only sign company with national coverage.

Every business needs signs, and there's no better way to tap into this lucrative multi-million dollar market than with a Speedy Signs franchise. As a franchise owner, you'll be able to offer a full range of sign and display products that businesses need with a strong brand name they've come to trust and respect. Just as significant, you'll benefit from time-tested businesses systems, a very collaborative network of owners, and a highly rated mentoring programme.  You'll also enjoy the support and encouragement of the Speedy Signs support office - a very experienced and knowledgeable team that is committed to providing you with the quality equipment, training, advice and resources to make your Speedy Signs store the sign of a successful business.

We look forward to welcoming you into the Speed Signs family.

Franchisee comments

“When I made the decision to go out on my own, Speedy Signs was an easy choice as I knew they were professional, had a great reputation, and were the biggest signage group in the country. Purchasing an existing store allowed us to hit the ground running through leveraging existing relationships. From day one we have cash flow and a revenue stream.” – Craig Simmons, Penrose


“My business quadrupled within 3 years of rebranding my independent sign business to Speedy Signs. A system as big as Speedy Signs allowed for rapid expansion.” – Adam Cullen, Dunedin


“My previous business was very hard work because I worked weekends and didn’t get to see much of the family. Since I’ve invested in s Speedy Signs business I’ve got my family life back, and seen much greater returns too.”

– Alex Smith, Hastings


“Speedy Signs’ group marketing programme has been a big help in generating sales for my business.” – Peter Smythe, Downtown, Auckland
