FASTFRAME is the leader in the industry. In an estimated 6 billion dollar marketplace, with high retail margins, the FASTFRAME Operating System is simple to administer, requires minimal staffing, affords sociable business hours, AND requires a low level of initial investment.
The FASTFRAME Corporation is organized into two major groups – Franchise Development and Franchise Services. We recognized long ago that although growth and development are important, providing quality service to our existing Franchisees is the key to our success.
Our Franchisees are independent owners, but we think of them as partners, and we’d like to think our Franchisees see each other as partners too. We support them with training programs, vendor relations, equipment, and assistance in remodeling, relocation and expanding. We also support their local and regional advertising with between 10- and 20-million advertising impressions a year. With our extensive experience in the unique challenges of franchise operations, when they face tough questions, they know they can call us for expert advice. I like to think of it as being in business for yourself, but not by yourself. These are just some of the unique benefits of being a FASTFRAME franchisee.
To maintain our leadership in the custom picture framing industry by recruiting business partners who are both qualified and passionate about our industry. We strive to provide each franchisee with an all inclusive and uncomplicated process whereby they can easily become a part of this very enjoyable business.
