Signs Express (Sligo) business-owner Michael O’Hara was named Franchisee of the Year at the prestigious event which took place last week at Croke Park in Dublin, for his success since opening three years ago.

Michael has been able to grow his business – despite the economic uncertainty of the past 12 months – by providing excellent customer service and quality products and as a result posted over a 10% increase in turnover during 2009.

The awards, which were hosted on Friday 19th February, took place on the first night of the Irish Franchise Show and were announced by Mr Conor Lenihan, Minister for Science, Technology & Innovation and presented by popular media personality Tom McEnaney from Newstalk radio. The night brought together a number of franchisees from as diverse industries as couriers to caterers to receive recognition for their astute business acumen and approach in the current economic climate. In a double whammy, Signs Express as a franchisor also reached the finals of the Irish Franchisor of the Year awards.

Michael commented on his achievement: “I was delighted to hear my name called out on stage at the awards. It’s a great achievement for me as well as recognition for my staff who have worked so hard to help us reach where we are today. Success in challenging times demands a fully strategic approach and by combining our marketing activities to win and retain custom, investment in new technology and staff, we’ve been able to face the current economic climate with confidence.”

Signs Express managing director Craig Brown commented on the announcement: “We are delighted that Michael has been recognised for his achievements and since opening his business less than three years ago, he has shown great success right from the very early days of trading. His plans for continuing on the upward trend show excellent potential for continuing to achieve his goals.”

Established in 2007, Signs Express (Sligo) has developed into one of the largest in the Signs Express network serving Sligo and surrounding counties including Donegal, Leitrim, Mayo, Longford and further afield, working on several national and regional signage projects. The centre provides a complete design, manufacture and fitting service for all forms of signage including interior and exterior signs, vehicle graphics, banners, window graphics and exhibition display products.
