Signarama Light opens its doors in Salford

Signarama Light opens its doors in Salford

Having initially launched the concept in 2017, Signarama has now introduced the UK’s first ever Signarama Light showroom in Salford.

Designed to offer a more affordable entry level to the UK’s sign market, Signarama Light showrooms are fully fitted out just like all other Signarama centres, but crucially, don’t have any production equipment on site. As a result, the required building footprint is much smaller and thus attracts lower rental and business rates, keeping costs to a minimum.

Sign and graphics production is outsourced to top quality national and local suppliers, including existing franchisees in the Signarama network, eliminating the need for an in-house production and design workforce. Consequently, Signarama Light franchisees can focus on doing what they do best; meeting customers and driving the business forward through sales and strategic development.

The added beauty of the Light model is that franchisees can choose to upgrade to full production facilities as they grow or, open a network of Light showrooms that can feed a central production centre.

Keddy Banda, who operates the new Salford centre, explained “The opportunity to expand our business through the Light model was too good to miss. We get all the benefits of the franchise, in terms of training and support, but on a low-investment, high ROI basis. It’s win-win for us!”

He added: “Our main Signarama showroom in Preston handles all production in-house. We have a fantastic team there and together we’re focused on building an empire of Light showrooms in nearby territories with Preston acting as the hub. I think the flexibility of the new model is going to be really appealing to people because it provides lots of different ways of expanding a business.”

Commenting on the new Signarama Light model, Aliyyah-Begum Nasser, Signarama’s UK Managing Director, said: “We’re very excited for the Signarama Salford team, it’s just the beginning of a new era in Signarama’s UK history. The Light model is really grabbing the attention of aspiring business owners, as well as those already in the sector. It opens up the industry to a much wider audience, including younger generations keen to get into business ownership, but previously priced out of the market.”
