Inside Franchise Business: Grant and Sarah Archibald congratulated by Prime Minister Jacinda ArdernIt's a local name but behind Speedy Signs is global brand Signarama, which has close to 900 outlets. It is part of the US based United Franchise Group and launched more than 30 years ago.

The brand is celebrating its 20 year presence in Australasia. In New Zealand, master license partner, Grant Archibald has 25 locations under the Speedy Signs name.

“While the 20 years have passed quickly, I still remember the day we opened in Penrose, Auckland,” said Archibald. “Our eldest son was only a baby in our grand opening photos, and now, in a few more months, he’s getting married.
